This week’s The Kardashians episode saw Kim Kardashian addressing her ex-husband Kanye West’s insensitive comments hurled at the Jewish community.
"It’s really confusing for me that it’s so different than the person that I married because that’s who I loved and that’s who I remember," she said during the episode which was filmed back in October. "I’ll do anything to get that person back."
The aspiring lawyer continued in the confessional: "The whole situation is sad, and I don’t know how to emotionally manage it. I’m conflicted because I don’t ever want to jump in and be a part of a downfall for the father of my kids."
"It’s really [expletive] hard," she added. "And I don’t wish that upon anybody."
In a conversation with her sister Khloe during the episode, the SKIMS mogul broke down while discussing the rapper’s anomalous behaviour. "I’m just not OK. I’m just having such a hard day today.
"I literally haven’t changed my outfit in like two days. I just have to get it together. I just can’t."
She also noted that she feels "bad for him," although he doesn’t "feel bad for himself" and will "probably go off on me" if the reality show star tried to confront him.
Following a tirade of disparaging remarks about Jews and his constant doubling down on them, Kanye West was dropped by multiple brand partnerships, including Adidas, Balenciaga, his agency CAA and MRC.
The Kardashians star spoke out against her baby daddy’s problematic commentary, writing on Twitter in October 2022: "Hate speech is never OK or excusable. I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end."
"I feel guilty that I posted something in support of the Jewish community, then people dropped him today," Kim continued. "Is that my fault? That I posted that? And did that push them? And I should have just kept quiet? But I’m vocal about everything else…I never know what to do."
Kim and Kanye were together for eight years before the former filed for divorce from him in 2020. Together, they co-parent their four children.
