Reality TV superstar Kim Kardashian became emotional as she discussed the psychological pain she has been going through due to her former husband Kanye West’s behavior.
In the third season premiere of The Kardashians, Kim opened up to her mother Kris Jenner about the strain she has endured since she and the rapper parted ways.
Talking about the negative impact of Kanye’s vicious online assaults and accusations, the founder of Skims said that she has had to maintain a calm facade for the welfare of their children, leaving her feeling depleted.
“There has been a lot happening with Kanye lately, and things have been popping up in the media, radio shows, and interviews,” Kim informed Kris in the latest episode of the show.
“I spent my entire morning dealing with an anxiety attack; I felt like I couldn’t breathe the whole day. You know how you’re about to cry… that’s how I felt all day,” she said.
The episode was apparently recorded at the time when Kanye, who now goes by Ye, was denigrating Kris on social media in 2022, alleging that she had persuaded some of her daughters, including Kim, to pose for Playboy.
“Even with all of the craziness of everything that Kanye says about us, I never comment, I never post… he has created the most ridiculous story about you, the tape, and we remain quiet; we stay silent through all the lies,” Kim continued.
“Even though he looks down on me for my leaked tape, talks about it all over town and in the media. Thank you for reminding people over and over again,” she added.
“All of his antics will be much more harmul to the children one day than my tape ever will, and I have to sit here and say nothing, ever, because I know one day my children will appreciate it. And I know that’s the best thing for them,” she said.
Kim further revealed how tough it is for her to demonstrate her support for Kanye in front of their four kids: North, 9, Saint, 7, Chicago, 5, and Psalm, 4, adding that one day they might discover the truth about their father.
Kim Kardashian also noted how Kanye, who claims to be her “protector,” spreads lies about her while accusing her of being unfaithful to him with Drake throughout their marriage.
“I never say anything negative about him. If I say I’m tired, I feel guilty about it. I am exhausted!” Kim exclaimed. “I want to be allowed to have a bad day, but I can’t. I can’t even feel overwhelmed and have a bad day because no one else has their act together.”
“It’s so overwhelming all the time. I don’t want to participate in a public feud with him. I feel like I have to do something, particularly when it involves other people and it causes them harm,” Kim confessed.
