“I’ve protected this for so long, but I said I’ll never let that happen to you guys again.”

Before filing for divorce in February 2021, Kim was called out sporadically by Kanye, who has bipolar disorder. Perhaps the most notable case came during a series of tweets in 2020 in which he claimed she tried to force him into a psychiatric facility against his will.

He also publicly revealed some of his and Kim’s most personal and private information on stage at a political rally when he claimed they planned an abortion when the mogul was pregnant with their first child.

But Kanye not only spoke out against Kim, but also appeared to be at odds with her family, namely her mother, Kris Jenner. He branded the mother-daughter duo “white supremacists” and infamously called the matriarch “Kris Jong-Un” before sharing a screenshot of his texts with Kris asking her if she wanted to “go to war,” although she did not text him back.

Back then, Kim wholeheartedly defended Kanye, releasing a statement in July 2020 in which he spoke publicly about his bipolar disorder for the first time to help break the “stigma and misconceptions” surrounding mental health.

A few years earlier, she defended the rapper when he posted a series of tweets about his love for President Donald Trump. He continued to visit Trump at the White House while running his own presidential bid, which he later admitted had “embarrassed” Kim.

Now that Kim has split from Kanye — and entered a new relationship with Pete Davidson — it looks like she’s reflecting on the turbulent past marriage as openly as ever.

Khloé jumps in to defend her sister, telling Kim, “Most men don’t rip off their children’s mothers like that in public. We don’t have to sit here throwing back stones, we’ll take it by the chin.”

“You’re the mother of his kids,” Kris notes, adding that Kim “did nothing to Kanye but be awesome.” In a confessional, she continued: “When people say derogatory things about one of us, it hurts us all. Because one day your children will read everything and see everything. And that’s something that everyone really needs to be aware of.”

As we now know, in mid-January Kanye released a song titled “Eazy,” which contains a scathing reference to Kim’s boyfriend Pete. “God saved me from that crash / Just so I could smack Pete Davidson in the ass,” Ye raps.

Shortly after the track’s release, Kanye spent months sharing Instagram posts slamming both Kim and Pete while the mogul remained largely silent.

He shared a series of videos in which he accused Kim of intentionally excluding him from her daughter Chicago’s fourth birthday party and claimed he was “not allowed to know” where the location was.

“Kanye’s constant attacks on me in interviews and on social media are actually more hurtful than any TikTok North could cause,” Kim wrote.

“I wanted nothing but a healthy and supportive coparenting relationship,” she added. “It saddens me that Kanye continues to make it impossible at every step.”
