Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Difference of Opinion: What Made Kanye West Storm Out of the Room?
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have an argument in the latest season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and neither held back while sharing their thoughts
Reality star Kim Kardashian West made quite few headlines when she steppend on this year's Met Gala with an outfit to kill. Dressed in a dress that was a revealing wet look, Kim almost looked like a creature straight out of the sea. It was glimmer and glam, skin-tight and sparkling with crystals. However, it left her husband, rapper Kanye West quite uncomfortable. On Sunday’s episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” viewers saw West tear into Kardashian’s Thierry Mugler corset look for being “too sexy.”
“Like the corset, underwear, all that vibe, I just feel like I just went through this transition of being rapper, and lookin’ at all these girls,” West, who recently converted to Christianity, said. “I didn’t realize that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that’s married and loved, and the father of now, what — about to be four kids?”
The rapper added that a “corset is like a form of underwear. It’s hot. It’s like, it’s hot for who, though?” Kardashian rejected her husband’s criticism. “So the night before the Met, you’re gonna come in here and say that you’re not into a corset bust?” Kim said, putting her husband’s “negative energy” on blast. “I’m getting really bad anxiety. What are you talking about?” “You are my wife, and it affects me when pictures are too sexy,” West answered. Kardashian pointed out that West helped craft her public image. “You built me up to be this sexy person and confidence and all this stuff,” she said. “And just because you’re on a journey and you’re on a transformation doesn’t mean that I’m in the same spot with you.”
West simply said “all right, cool,” and exited the room. Kardashian called his outburst “absolutely ridiculous.” West has indeed taken credit over the years for helping craft Kardashian’s public image, going so far as to email the star when he doesn’t like something about her look. The rapper famously purged Kardashian’s closet of clothing and accessories during a “KUWTK” episode in 2012, but she was fine with it.
“You want your guy to think you’re really hot. I’ll put something on and [Kanye will] say, ‘No, that doesn’t look good,’ and I’ll trust him,” Kardashian said in a 2013 interview with Us Weekly.
