Fans are coming to the defense of Kim Kardashian after a member of the paparazzi asked her a question about an incident that happened earlier that day involving her ex-hubby, Kanye West. It comes after Kim K has repeatedly asked the paparazzi not to ask her questions about Ye in front of her kids.
“Hey Kim, what do you think of Kanye hitting someone … the paparazzi’s phone?” asked the paparazzi. Kardashian quickly responded, “Do not talk to me about that,” quietly adding, “in front of my kids.” As the video cuts out, you can hear North West, Kim’s daughter, shout, “Please leave!” in the background.
The incident they’re referring to happened prior to North’s basketball game at a nearby sports complex. A woman was taking a video of Ye, which he didn’t take kindly to. He grabbed the phone out of the woman’s hand and threw it down the street, which prompted the police to launch a battery investigation on him.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who legally changed his name to Ye last year, began dating in 2012 and got engaged the following year. The then-power couple got married in 2014 and share four children together – North, 9, Saint, 7, Chicago, 5, and Psalm, 3. Their divorce was finalized on Nov. 29, 2022.
Over the past year, Ye has faced a flurry of criticism and backlash as a result of his very public downfall. He has repeatedly made anti-semitic and hateful comments, saw most of his business deals and sponsors oust him, and was even taken off social media – all while threatening the mother of his kids.
With all this going on, Kim Kardashian has stayed true to one thing – doing what’s best for the kids. And part of that is making sure they have a good relationship with their father, despite his recent actions. How does she manage that? By shielding them from his wrongdoings and ensuring they see his good qualities.
All she wants is for her children to view Ye as the ‘best dad’ and while she no longer tolerates his actions, she makes it a point not to bash Ye in front of her kids. Of course, that’s also why she doesn’t want the paparazzi and media asking her about those things – especially when she’s spending time with her kids.
Kim Kardashian Breaks Down During Podcast
Towards the end of 2022, Kim Kardashian appeared on the Angie Martinez IRL podcast with host Angie Martinez. The 42-year-old reality star was moved to tears when asked about her relationship with Kanye and how she shields her children from his antics. She didn’t hold back and was as honest as can be.
“If they don’t know things that are being said or what’s happening in the world, why would I ever bring that energy to them? That’s like real heavy, heavy grown-up s**t. That they are not ready to, like, deal with,” said Kardashian, adding she just wants her children to have the same experience she had with her father.
And while Kim understands she can’t shield them forever, she’s 100% intent on protecting it ‘to the end of the earth as long as I can.’ Even when she’s driving her children to or from school, and they want to listen to his music – she puts a smile on her face and allows it. When the kids are gone, that’s when she cries.
In fact, Kim Kardashian has formed close relationships with her children’s teachers to ensure they’re not being exposed to anything bad about their father and is known to manage her children’s internet access. As for her children’s classmates, they’ve never said anything bad about Ye or the things he’s doing.
