Kim Kardashian has broken her silence after weeks of her ex Kanye West making comments about her and her parenting in interviews and on social media. Kardashian’s breaking point was West posting an Instagram asking how to get their oldest daughter, 8-year-old North West, who has a joint TikTok account with Kardashian, off the platform. He tagged Kardashian in the post. It featured a screenshot of North in one of their TikToks.
“SINCE THIS IS MY FIRST DIVORCE I NEED TO KNOW WHAT I SHOULD DO ABOUT MY DAUGHTER BEING PUT ON TIK TOK AGAINST MY WILL ?” he captioned the post.
Kardashian responded by posting a statement on her Instagram Stories for him and the public to read. She was open about the toll his conduct has taken on her and their family. The couple has four children together: North, 6-year-old Saint, 4-year-old Chicago, and 2-year-old Psalm.
Kanye’s constant attacks on me in interviews and on social media is actually more hurtful than any TikTok North might create. As the parent who is the main provider and caregiver for our children, I am doing my best to protect our daughter while also allowing her to express her creativity in the medium that she wishes with adult supervision—because it brings her happiness. Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all. From the beginning I have wanted nothing but a healthy and supportive co-parenting relationship because it is what is best for our children and it saddens me that Kanye continues to make it impossible every step of the way.
I wish to handle all matters regarding our children privately and hopefully he can finally respond to the third attorney he has had in the last year to resolve any issues amicably.
