The SKIMS founder, 41, spoke about her ongoing divorce from the rapper in a conversation with Robin Roberts on Wednesday night.
“You want to take the high road and sometimes it’s hard,” she said on the ABC special. “I’ve always been a champion of him speaking his truth.”
While Kardashian acknowledged that her “younger ones don’t really understand,” she noted that their older two kids “know what’s going on.”
“You have to just be there for them,” she said. “No matter what, even in this crazy life that we live, you just have to have a really open dialogue with your children. Kanye and I have had conversations. We have to talk daily for the kids so you know, I hate that it had to play out like that. But when it comes to family, I mean, Kanye and I will always be family.”
“At the end of the day, I just want my kids to be happy and healthy, and think the world of their dad,” she added. “And they do.”
Kardashian’s comments come after she filed for divorce from the Donda rapper, 44, in February 2021. In a recent conversation with Vogue, the reality star said a series of lifestyle changes led to the split.
“For so long, I did what made other people happy,” Kardashian said. “And I think in the last two years I decided, I’m going to make myself happy. And that feels really good. And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy. I’ve chosen myself. I think it’s okay to choose you.”
Though Kardashian and West’s divorce has not yet been finalized, Kardashian was granted her request to be legally single in March.
Since the paperwork was filed, West has made public attempts to reunite his family, though both Kardashian and West have since explored other relationships — Kardashian with SNL star Pete Davidsonand West with actress Julia Fox and model Chaney Jones.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
