Kanye West has insisted that reality star Kim Kardashian is still his wife amid rumours of a boiling romance between her and Pete Davidson.
The 44-year old rapper opened up on his life, particularly his impending divorce with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, on an upcoming Drink Champs podcast.
On the podcast, West repeatedly referred to the Kardashian as his “wife” as he reflected on their split.
After being reminded that the public keeps saying the pair is “divorced,” Kanye said;
“We’re not even divorced.
“This ain’t no joke to me.
“My kids want their parents to stay together.
“I want us to be together.”
He further claimed that the entertainment industry and the media is against them as a couple.
“If you look at the media, that’s not what they’re promoting.
“That’s not what they want.
“They want it to be a new episode, a new TV show.
“And then they have people all around in my wife’s ear.”
Blaming the Kardashian’s publicist for encouraging their split, Kanye said, “I don’t f**k with her.” The rapper also referred to Kim as his wife earlier in the interview while discussing her influence on beauty standards.
He said, “My wife changed the idea of beauty. White girls made fun of her for her ass, and now white girls go and get ass.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had been married for nearly seven years and the marriage is blessed with four children before the Kardashian filed for divorce early this year. As divorce proceedings are on the way, the 40-year old socialite was awarded the couple’s $60million Hidden Hills estate in a recent court ruling.
Since her appearance on Saturday Night Live, the Kardashian has been romantically linked with SNL comedian Pete Davidson, in fact duo were spotted going on a second date earlier this week
