Kanye is sorry for ‘stressing out’ Kim Kardashian – but says she discriminated against him in their marriage.
An atypical “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” rapper has apologized to his ex-wife, regretting disturbing her peace with his antics following their acrimonious split.
“This is the mother of my children and I apologize for any stress I’ve caused,” Kanye, 45, better known as Ye or Yeezy, said on “Good Morning America.”
“I need this person to be the least stressed and at best healthy and as calm as possible to be able to raise these kids,” he added of Kardashian, 41 – who he recently said has full parental control over their brood “80% of the time.”
Kardashian filed for divorce in February 2021 after six years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in March 2022. The sour lovers share children North West, 9, Saint West, 6, Chicago West, 4, and Psalm West, 3.
Ye’s remorseful expression comes after she appeared to have released a series of private and controversial texts with Kardashian and members of the famous family – including mother Kris Jenner, 66 – to her 17.2 million Instagram followers.
Earlier this month, Yeezy released screenshots of a chat where he and Skims’ mind appeared to be at war over where their kids attended school. In the since-deleted conversation, the “Jesus Walks” host writes: “You didn’t say where the kids go to school. Why would you say, because you’re half white?”
During “GMA,” Ye revealed that she had to “fight” for her right to parent her children.
“I have a voice, but I had to fight for it,” the Chicago native said. “That hurts when you have to yell about what your kids are wearing.”
“There was a parallel to what’s happening at Gap, what’s happening at Adidas, and what’s happening in my house,” he added.
And Kanye identified “discrimination” as that parallel.
“It was kind of disrespectful to the voice of something I co-created,” he said. “I co-created the children. I co-created the product at Adidas. I co-created the product at Gap. There is a parallel. And the parallel touches on discrimination.”
Asked if he felt discriminated against during his marriage to Kardashian, the “Daddy, Hold My Hands” lyricist said: “Yes. I want my children to go to Donda [Academy] and I must fight to say so.”
Donda is the “gospel”-focused children’s educational institution that Ye launched in 2019. There are currently 82 students enrolled.
Kanye’s private Christian school in Simi Valley, California, is named after his late mother, Donda West, who chaired the Department of English, Communications, Media Arts and Theater at Chicago State University. She died in 2007.
“As a father and as a Christian,” Ye said, “I have a right to have a say in what my children wear, what they watch, what they eat.”
“I am their father. It has to be co-parenting,” he continued. “It doesn’t just depend on the woman. Like men they have a choice. Men’s voices matter.”
And the Grammy winner admitted he used his popular social media presence as a megaphone for his parenting situation.
“I have a platform where I can say what so many dads can’t say out loud,” Yeezy boasted.
He went on to liken the virtual vehicles on Twitter and Instagram to a real car, saying: “We can use a car to rush someone to the hospital, or we can use a car to accidentally hit someone while rushing someone someone at the hospital. . It all depends on how we use it.”
Elsewhere in the wide-ranging interview, Kanye opened up about his crumbling 10-year partnership with clothing giant Gap.
Last week, he terminated his 10-year contract with the label that supports his streetwear line, claiming it breached the contract.
“That means I was there for a specific agenda, not for Yeezy Gap to be all that it could be, or this dream that I had of what Gap could be,” he said. “Time to do my own thing.”
Kanye plans to open his own line of stores called YZY — an idea first floated by radio personality Sway during a 2013 show.
During their conversation, a agitated Ye asked, “how does it swing?” when the show’s host suggested launching a clothing line on her own instead of partnering with a major retailer.
But now, as Kanye prepares to heed that sage business advice nearly a decade later, the rapper humbly admitted, “Sway had the answer.”
