Kim Kardashian says co-parenting with ex-husband Kanye West is ‘tough’
The Skims founder shares four children with the 45-year-old Donda rapper.
Speaking on Monday’s episode of Angie Martinez’s IRL Podcast, Kardashian said co-parenting with West, who legally changed his name to Ye, was “damn hard.”
“I had the best dad and I had the best memories and the greatest experiences and that’s all I want for my kids as long as they can have that,” Kardashian said.
“I wish that for her,” she added. “If they don’t know what’s being said or what’s happening in the world, why should I bring them this energy? This is some really heavy adult s*** they can’t handle.
Kardashian said she will be “prepared” for the day when her kids will come and ask her about the controversy surrounding her father.
“One day my kids will thank me for sitting here and not hitting their dad when I could,” she told host Angie Martinez. “All that crazy shit.
“They will thank me and I will privately answer anything they want to know. It’s no longer my place to step in.”

However, the Kardashians star admitted she’s “hanging on a thread.”
“I definitely protected [Ye] and I will still do it for my children in the eyes of my children,” Kardashian said. “Back in my house, my kids don’t know what’s going on in the outside world… I’m holding on by a thread.
“I know I’m so close that that’s not going to happen. As long as that happens, I will protect this to the end of the world as long as I can.”
Ye and Kardashian’s divorce was finalized last month.
The former couple started dating in 2012 and had their first child in 2013. West later that year proposed using the giant screen at the San Francisco Giants’ empty waterfront ballpark, and the two wed on May 24, 2014 in a ceremony at a Renaissance fort in Florence, Italy.
Since Kardashian filed for divorce in February 2021, West has shared numerous social media posts about the reality star, including who she is dating and how she has allegedly given him limited access to his children.
