Kim Kardashian Kanye West Damaging Kids Sex Tape

The third season of "The Kardashians" on Hulu's first episode just gave us some compelling insight into one of the messiest pop culture splits in recent memory. More importantly, though, it illustrated just how heartbreaking it was for Kim Kardashian, who spoke to Kris Jenner of her fallout with longtime partner Kanye West. Furthermore, she reflected on how, despite all of his slanderous behavior and attacks towards her family, she could never relay that information to her children. Overall, it's quite the tragic sentiment considering just how much she went through during the past few years at this point. Still, the SKIMS mogul is trying to keep her head above the water.

"There’s been a lot going on with Kanye right now," Kim Kardashian said towards the end of the episode. "Things are going on in the media- radio shows and interviews. Even through all the craziness of everything that Kanye says about us, I never comment, I never post. He has made up the most insane narrative about [Kris] and the [sex] tape. We stay silent through all the lies, all the stuff.

"I think at this point I just assume everything I text Kanye is going to be put on the Internet,” Kim continued. “I think I can handle anything, I just get really heartbroken for my mom, that she has to deal with so much. All of his shenanigans, I don’t even know what the f**k to call it, is going to be far more damaging to the kids one day, than my tape will ever be. And I have to sit here and not say anything, ever, because I know one day my kids will appreciate that. I will be his biggest cheerleader to them forever. One day, when they see for themselves, I’ll answer whatever they want me to, but it’s just… a lot."

Of course, this is remarkable strength from the 42-year-old, even if media circulation makes it unlikely that their children won't know this to some capacity. Still, such are the dangers of a public relationship in such an informed world. Regardless, they've at least been able to co-parent in a seemingly amicable way since then, so hopefully they've come to some sort of reconciliation, however distant it may be.
