Kim Kardashian is down to ride even if it's on a "path to destruction." Despite her husband Kanye West's outlandish comments lately, the reality star is reportedly concerned but is willing to stand by her man.
After the "Ultralight Beam" rapper made some controversial remarks on Twitter as well as in interviews, sources close to Kardashian claim that she is worried about West but is doing her best to protect him.
"Kim is absolutely worried about him right now, but she will defend him publicly to the end. She's a very loyal wife, and her tweets and everything she's been saying is definitely very calculated to help Kanye," the source explained.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star recently defended Kanye while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, April 30. When DeGeneres asked Kardashian how she felt about Kanye's series of tweets in April, the makeup mogul immediately stated that she had no idea that he reactivated his Twitter account again until she started seeing the tweets appear on her timeline.
Prior to her interview with DeGeneres, the KKW Beauty founder supported her husband by taking to her own Twitter account to fire back at the media for claiming that the Grammy Award winner has mental health issues due to his recent statements.
To the media trying to demonize my husband let me just say this... your commentary on Kanye being erratic & his tweets being disturbing is actually scary. So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) April 25, 2018
Kanye Goes 'AWOL' On TMZ Live
Although Kardashian has been extremely vocal about her husband and his free will, she has not yet commented on his most recent statements during his interview on TMZ Live.
On Tuesday, May 1, the father of three received widespread backlash after he made unorthodox suggestions about slavery, which led TMZ Senior Producer Van Lathan to school him on history.
"When you hear about slavery for 400 years -- for 400 years? That sounds like a choice. Like, you was there for 400 years and it's all of y'all?" the hip-hop artist said.
The comment led Lathan to confront the fashion designer and respond with an answer that many might have been thinking since the rapper returned to social media.
This is why it’s important to have diversity on your staff. No one else was gonna speak up. And #Kanye wasn’t going to respect anyone else speaking to him like this. Thank You @VanLathan #TMZ pic.twitter.com/diCUxJSZhs — Chloe A. Hilliard (@Chloe_Hilliard) May 1, 2018
Shortly after his appearance on TMZ, Kanye took to Twitter to defend his statement with yet another series of tweets. The "Real Friends" rapper explained that his statement was simply free thought.
the reason why I brought up the 400 years point is because we can't be mentally imprisoned for another 400 years. We need free thought now. Even the statement was an example of free thought It was just an idea — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) May 1, 2018
