Kim Kardashian has revealed the struggle of co-parenting with her ex-husband Kanye West.

The mom of four broke down when she went on the IRL podcast with Angie Martinez to talk about how she’s been parenting since her divorce from West, whose recent erratic behaviors and alt-right tangents have tanked his brand deals, net worth and his legacy.


Kardashian admitted she does what she can to protect West “in the eyes of my kids.” She said she monitors what they see on TV and online and is friends with their teachers who assure her that other kids don’t talk about West at school.

Although she didn’t explicitly address West’s antisemitic comments or his recent outbursts, she said shielding her kids from media coverage about him is like a full-time job.

“I could be going through something but if we’re riding to school and they wanna listen to their dad’s music, no matter what we’re going through, no matter what is happening in the world, I have to have that smile on my face and blast his music and sing along with my kids and act like nothing’s wrong,” she said.

Kardashian got tearful when she recalled to Martinez her relationship with her own father, Robert Kardashian, who died in 2003.

“I had the best dad, and I have the best memories and the greatest experience and that’s all I want for my kids,” she said. “As long as they can have that, that’s what I would want for them.”

She continued, alluding to the recent controversies surrounding West, that she doesn’t want to bring that “real heavy, heavy grown-up s—” to her children. She said she wants to keep their life “as normal as possible” until they’re ready to have those conversations.

“One day my kids will thank me for not bashing their dad when I could,” she said.
