Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been co-parenting their four children since the Skims CEO filed for divorce in February 2021.
The reality star joined Angie Martinez’s IRL Podcast on Monday (December 26) where she got emotional reflecting on the struggles of co-parenting with one of the world’s most outspoken superstars.
“It’s hard,” Kim K admitted. “Co-parenting is really fucking hard.”
The beauty mogul thought back to her relationship with her late father, Robert Kardashian: “I had the best dad, and I had the best memories and the greatest experience and that’s all I want for my kids as long as they can have that, that’s what I would want for them.”

Kim said she’s done her best to shield her kids from what the outside world is saying about Kanye’s recent antics and the outrage over his antisemitic remarks, which have resulted in the loss of just about all of his business partnerships.
Even the times her kids will request their father’s music in the car, she’ll happily oblige and sing along to them.
“If they don’t know the things that are being said or what’s happening in the world, why would I ever bring that energy to them?” she said. “That’s really heavy grown-up shit that they’re not ready to deal with. That they are not ready to deal with and when they are, we’ll have those conversations.
“I’ll be so prepared. But until then I’ll do anything to keep their life as normal as possible. One day my kids will thank me for sitting here and not bashing their dad when I could. All the crazy shit. They’ll thank me and I’ll privately answer anything that they want to know. It’s not my place anymore to jump in.”
Kim and Kanye finalized their divorce in November. In the agreement, Yeezy will wire Kardashian $200,000 on the first day of each month in child support payments for the foreseeable future. The pair have four children together ranging from nine-year-old North to the youngest, Psalm, who is three.
