Yeezy is trying to make amends with his ex-wife. Kanye West apologized to Kim Kardashian for his social media antics in a rare interview with Good morning America, which premiered on September 22. “This is the mother of my children,” he said. “And I apologize for the stress I’ve caused, even in my frustration, because God is calling me to be stronger, but also, no one else should cause stress. I need this person [the] least stressed and the best, sane and as calm as possible to be able to raise these kids.
Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February 2021. They share four children together — daughter North, 9, son Saint, 6, daughter Chicago, 4, and son Psalm, 3. Most recently, the rapper shared alleged screenshots of text messages on Instagram between him and Kardashian and claimed that she was not allowing him to have a say in their children’s education, comparing the situation to his ongoing issues with Gap and Adidas. “I have no say in where my kids go to school,” he captioned the now-deleted post. “Call me whatever names you want. If you don’t understand why I won’t give up my business, my brands and my kids, then you are the ones who are crazy.”
West has since updated fans on his Instagram story and said he had a “good meeting” with Kardashian about the possibility of the kids attending his new private school, Donda Academy. However, in the new interview, West went on to say that co-parenting is still a battle sometimes. “I have a voice, but I had to fight for it,” he said. “It hurts when you have to yell about what your kids are wearing.”
Kardashian has been the subject of several rants and social media posts from West, especially while dating ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson. This reached a breaking point in January 2021 when she dealt with one of West’s outbursts about their daughter North using TikTok. “Kanye’s constant attacks on me in interviews and on social media are actually more hurtful than any TikTok North could create,” she wrote in an Instagram Story. “Divorce is hard enough on our kids and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly only causes everyone more pain.”
Kardashian now says she’s committed to peaceful co-parenting with West, explaining that she wants him to always be around the kids on her Hulu show The Kardashian family. The Yeezy designer also reflects on the use of social media and how hurtful it can be. “Oh, that’s one of my favorite questions in this interview,” he said GMA. “I mean, we can use a car to take someone to the hospital — or we can use a car and accidentally hit someone while taking someone to the hospital. So it all depends on how we use it.”
