The reality actress, 42, flew to Paris with her 9-year-old daughter, North, and mother Kris Jenner for the season 2 finale of The Kardashians, which aired on Thursday, November 24. Kim, 45, wore a vintage item from her father’s wardrobe.
“That’s her dad’s jacket. He wore it to perform here and to win an award,” the beauty mogul explained, referring to the rapper’s Pastelle varsity jacket which he showed off during the 2008 American Music Awards.
Kim recalled saving the “huge fashion moment” for her children. “Kanye tends to not care about his stuff and gives it all away. It ended up on the internet and I got it last week,” the TV personality, who also shares kids Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3, with Kanye, detailed. “Now Kanye knows that I am so protective of his stuff for the kids.”
She continued: “Even now when he was at the height of not speaking to me and being angry with me. He won a few Grammys and I still reached out and was like, ‘I know you just won a few Grammys, I gotta add them to the vault.’ He’s like, ‘OK.’”
The founder of Skim’s disclosure about her connection with the artist comes nearly two years after she filed for divorce. Kim was pronounced legally single in March, among the processes. Later, the California native spoke out about the difficulties of co-parenting with her former partner.
“We went off and on. You know, we went about eight months without even speaking to each other at the beginning of the divorce,” Kim said on the “Not Skinny But Not Fat” podcast in April, one month after she restored her last name. “I mean, he would still see the kids and stuff. He and I just took a minute of not talking.”
At the time, Kim admitted that she wasn’t fazed by the complications. “And I think in relationships, it’ll be like that. I hope we, you know, are the parenting goals at the end of the day,” she continued. “I think we just have a different kind of platform now.
But you know, it doesn’t mean that maybe because he expressed himself in a certain way that he’s not an amazing person and an amazing friend. I do believe that we’ll have that again. I’m always really hopeful.”
