Kim Kardashian 'Kanye and I Will Always Be Family'

TAKING THE HIGH ROAD
ABC

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will always be family ... so says Kim, despite any hard feelings stemming from their rocky divorce.

The SKIMS founder opened up about co-parenting with Kanye on ABC ... saying, "When it comes to family, Kanye and I will always be family." Kim added, "At the end of the day, I just want my kids to be happy and healthy and think the world of their dad, and they do."

Kim and Kanye have 4 kids -- North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. KK says, she's really open and honest with her kids ... adding the oldest two understand what's going on between her and Kanye, but the little ones don't.

As you know, Kanye and Kim's divorce has been far from smooth sailing ... Ye has even gotten suspended from Instagram for lashing out against Kim, her new boyfriend Pete Davidson, and a slew of others.

As far as how Kim has dealt with Kanye's public attacks, she says ... "You wanna take the high road, and sometimes it's hard, but I think that at the end of the day everyone has their own way of communicating".

"I've always been like a champion of him speaking his truth, and I would always want that."

TMZ broke the story ... Kim filed for divorce back in February 2021 and she's now in what looks like a serious relationship with Pete Davidson.

Interestingly, Kanye has been quiet lately ... and if we take Kim's word for it, it seems like things are starting to calm down between the two.

Kanye West Your Honor, I Object to Kim's Divorce Plans

Kanye West is not down with Kim Kardashian getting an order divorcing him and restoring her single status ... and he's now made his objections known to the judge.

Kanye's new legal docs are in response to Kim's petition to get the judge to declare her single before all the custody and property issues are resolved. That's scheduled to happen early next month, but now Kanye's lawyer is objecting.

As for why ... Kanye's lawyer seems to be worried Kim might remarry and move some of their assets to her separate accounts. Kanye seems agreeable to Kim becoming single stat, but only if safeguards are in place so the assets remain as marital property.

Kanye's lawyer says he wants 3 conditions, all of which his lawyer claims Kim has rejected.

1. If either of them dies, he wants to make sure any money that might be owing to either gets reimbursed.

2. Kanye wants to block Kim from transferring assets out of any trust they created.

3. He wants Kim to waive their marital privilege pending a final custody decision. This is interesting ... he wants to ensure any communications between the 2 of them can be part of the court record. He also wants to make sure, if Kim remarries, she would waive any spousal privilege between her and her new husband ... in other words, he wants to make sure any conversations between her and a new husband, as it relates to custody, would be fair game in court.

As we reported, there's a prenup that keeps all of their property separate, so it's unclear why there would be alarm on Kanye's part.

The reality here ... it's almost certain the judge will restore Kim's single status next month.

Kanye West '100 Goons Pullin' Up to 'SNL'!!!' New Song, New Shot at Pete

UPDATE

7:09 AM PT -- The Kanye diss apparently doesn't have any effect on Pete ... a source close to the comedian tells us, "Pete is focusing on his relationship with Kim and making sure she feels supported, the rest is just noise."

Sounds like Kanye West is stuck in the anger stage of breaking up from Kim Kardashian, and he's taking it out on Pete Davidson with a new hint of violence ... in a song, at least.

Ye is featured on Fivio Foreign's new single, "City of Gods," alongside Alicia Keys. Great track ... unless you're Pete because when Ye's verse comes up, intimidation towards Pete comes flying out.

We mean, how else should the 'SNL' star take these lyrics -- "This afternoon, a hundred goons pullin' up to SNL (What?) When I pull up, it's dead on arrival."

Ye even throws some shots towards his estranged wife ... "And if I let 'em have my wife, n****s should thank me ... With this Balenciaga and Balenci' boots and a new blue Yankee."

Don't forget, this isn't the first time he's put his feelings about the couple in lyrics.

In the track "Eazy", he says "God saved me from that crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson's ass."

And, as we first reported, Ye was allegedly spreading rumors last month that Pete has AIDS -- although, sources close to the rapper called that "nonsense".

Ya wanna believe things will get better between the 3 of them ... but for now, Ye seems stuck in lyrical threats mode.

Kanye West Begs for Reunion w/ Kim & Fam ... Leaves L.A. on Commercial Jet

Kanye West is still openly pining for Kim Kardashian -- and had plenty of time to think about her at the airport ... 'cause it looks like he flew commercial.

The rapper-producer just made his true feelings known once again on Instagram -- screen-grabbing photos of her and their kids featured in a new issue of Vogue she's covering ... while begging higher powers to reunite them all.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Underneath the pics, his caption reads ... "GOD PLEASE BRING OUR FAMILY BACK TOGETHER."

Yeah, no doubt about it -- the dude is still very much in love with Kim ... and wants to patch things up, despite all the evidence that that isn't going to happen -- and despite repeated attacks directed at Kim.

Interestingly enough, Kim talks about her divorce in the new issue of US Vogue, released Wednesday, where she graces the cover. Kim says, "For so long, I did what made other people happy, and I think in the last two years I decided, I'm going to make myself happy."

She continues, "And that feels really good. And even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it's important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy. I've chosen myself. I think it's okay to choose you."

Like we said, Ye had a lot of time on his hands last night to mull those feelings over, even prior to boarding his latest flight. The reason ... he was acting like a normie at LAX Tuesday evening, and went through TSA before boarding a commercial jet.

It's a surreal sight, especially since KW rolled up in a full-head face-covering ... one which he actually had to remove once it was his turn to step on through. Usually, celebs of his status fly private and/or deal with security checkpoints away from all the crowds ... but not this time.

Seems Ye wanted to be a man of the people on Tuesday -- and now, he clearly wants to be a family man again too.

Ironically, the Vogue issue leads with a telling quote right from the jump -- with Kim saying, "I've chosen myself." Not a great sign for what her estranged hubby wants ... think it's safe to say she's fully moved on.

North West No TikTok on Her Own Phone ... Acct. Run By, Shared w/ Kim

UPDATE

12:37 PM PT -- More accusations being hurled from Kanye. He just claimed Kim is preventing him from bringing his kids to the Windy City for a sporting event, writing ... "I WANT TO BRING MY KIDS TO MY HOME TOWN OF CHICAGO TO SEE MY BASKETBALL TEAM PLAY FOR 7 THOUSAND PEOPLE AND KIM IS STOPPING THAT HOW IS THIS JOINT CUSTODY?"

Kanye West has expressed, very publicly, his discontent over his and Kim Kardashian's daughter, North, being on TikTok -- but we're told ... the 8-year-old can't even log on without mom's permission.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... North doesn't have her own TikTok account, nor does she have the app on her own phone any longer. Instead, we're told North can only access TikTok through a joint account on Kim's phone -- and only uses it in her mother's presence.

KIM & NORTH

Not just that ... but our sources say the comments for North and Kim's account are fully disabled. We've even spoken to sources at TikTok who tell us ... North and Kim's account passes the company's terms and conditions for minors.

Now here's why Ye might be in a tiff over this ... according to another source in the know. We know there was, in fact, an incident recently where North did go live on TikTok from her own phone -- but our sources say Kim disciplined her over that and made the changes then.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

We're told Kim, Kanye and his cousins even had a discussion over the incident, and they agreed to the new parameters that North is now confined to ... aka, no social media on her phone, and only being able to hop on through her mom's account with her mom there too.

With that said ... our sources say it's confusing to Kim that Kanye is making a big fuss about North's recent video, because she thought everyone was on the same page from before.

As for why an 8-year-old would even have her own phone ... sources close to Kim tell us it's so she can have a direct line to her dad, and vice-versa. Of course, we're told that phone is fully monitored with all the parental blocks you can imagine -- and to reiterate ... there are no social media accounts on it at all.

Kanye West Thanks Candace Owens ... For Defending Him in Parenting Spat

Kanye West now has someone in his corner over his very public spat with Kim Kardashian over parenting -- and that'd be one Candace Owens ... whose support he appreciates.

Ye took to IG Saturday to thank the conservative political pundit for voicing support over whether Kanye and Kim's daughter, North, should be on TikTok or not -- and in CO's POV, the kid definitely shouldn't ... because she says it's harmful for young girls.

Candace says Kim's wrong on this issue, going on to say ... "It's actually Kanye that is trying to protect his daughter in this regard and Kim is spinning this as 'obsession' and 'control'" ... adding there are other ways for kids to creatively express themselves besides TikTok.

KW was definitely feeling the love, and made sure Candace knew about it ... posting a lengthy caption that expressed just how much it meant to him that she was standing by his side ... while others, apparently, keep their vote of confidence on the DL with Ye.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

He writes, "THANK YOU CANDACE FOR BEING THE ONLY NOTEWORTHY PERSON TO SPEAK ON THIS ISSUE THERE'S A LOT OF CELEBRITIES SCARED TO SAY SOMETHING IN PUBLIC BUT THEY'LL TEXT ME IN PRIVATE AND SAY THEIR ON MY SIDE."

Kanye adds, "I WILL NO LONGER PUT MY HAND THROUGH A BLENDER TO HUG MY CHILDREN MY MOTHER TOOK ME TO CHICAGO WHEN I WAS 3 AND TOLD MY DAD IF HE CAME TO CHICAGO HE WOULD NEVER SEE ME AGAIN SO I BOUGHT THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR I DREAM OF A WORLD WHERE DAD’S CAN STILL BE HEROES."

KIM & NORTH

This latest dustup comes after Kim filmed a TikTok with North ... which pissed off Kanye, as he's made it clear he doesn't want his kids on there. Kim accused him of attacking her, and essentially brushed off the TikTok use as NBD ... especially compared to his behavior.

As we've told you ... this stuff might just need to get handled in court -- because it doesn't seem Kanye's gonna pipe down anytime soon ... despite what Kim wants.

Kanye West Finally Lands at Chicago's Party ... After Public Accusations

UPDATE

1:50 PM PT -- All's well that ends well (we think), because Kanye finally made it to Chicago's birthday party after all -- the result of what sounds like more of a mix-up than sabotage, as Ye suggested.

UPDATE

Sources close to the ex-couple tell TMZ ... Kanye was supposed to have Chicago all to himself at 4 PM today, so when he started railing about not being invited to her bday party with the Kardashians, Kim was surprised ... as we're told they'd previously discussed hosting two separate events for her, and she thought Kanye would be doing exactly that upon picking her up.

UPDATE

In any case, he's there now ... and even chatting up his mother-in-law, Kris, in what looks to be a somewhat cordial setting.

TAKING CONTROL OF THE NARRATIVE
HOLLYWOODUNLOCKED/SHUTTERSTOCK

Kanye West is taking his bitter divorce with Kim Kardashian to a whole new level -- claiming she's purposely keeping him from seeing his daughter on her own birthday ... and doing it on video, no less.

Ye went live with a message Saturday -- the day of young Chicago's 4th birthday -- with a bold allegation ... namely, that Kim and co. are refusing to give him the address to Chicago's party, which has KW shaken up and almost on the verge of tears.

Check out the video ... the guy appears to be driving himself around town, seemingly in search of the shindig that he says will not be disclosed to him, no matter who he talks to.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

He notes he hasn't talked to Kim and/or her nannies ... but does say he's talked to Tristan Thompson, who apparently told Ye he'd have to run it by Khloe Kardashian first. As a result of what Kanye perceives as a snub, he's wishing Chicago a happy 4th birthday publicly.

He continues to go on a rant about how fathers have been kept out of the home/family unit for ages, and even with all his money ... he still finds himself in that position. However, Kanye says he's not going to let that happen if he can help it, asking for public support.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Some quick clarifying background on what's going on here and what's the latest ... sources tell us he felt excluded because the original invite he got was pretty vague, and did not include a specific location. With that said, we're told it's been sorted out ... and that Ye is actually on his way to the party now.

Still, this comes off as just the latest barb in Kanye and Kim's divorce war. We've been told Kim is trying to be reasonable with him about custody, and only asks for clear communication and scheduling.

Meanwhile, Kim posted a big birthday tribute for Chicago ... as did her mom, Kris Jenner.

Kanye West's New Song My Kids Are Spoiled ... And Raised by Nannies, Cameras!!!

Kanye West got a lot off his chest in his new song with The Game -- and most of it was aimed at his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian ... not to mention his own kids.

The track, "Eazy," dropped early Saturday, and as expected ... Ye laid into Pete Davidson. But that's not even the real takeaway in our minds -- indeed, he says he wants to beat PD's ass, but his main beef seems to be with Kim ... and how he thinks she's raising their brood.

Check out his verse for yourself ... it's scathing to say the least, almost like his own rap diss.

Right off the bat, Kanye says ... "How I ain't bring nothing to the table, when I'm the table?" ... going on to rap that he's going to "turn up the music, wake up the neighbors," among other incendiary lyrics. Sounds like Ye's not ready to put this matter to bed quietly.

He hits the point home even more so later, when he raps ... "N****, we havin' the best divorce ever // If we go to court, we'll go to court together // Matter of fact, pick up your sis, we'll go to Kourt's together."

There's more ... Kanye says he "watched four kids for like five hours today," echoing what he claimed to Hollywood Unlocked about allegedly being restricted from time with his children. But then, he goes for the jugular ... rapping, "I got love for the nannies, but real family is better // The cameras watch the kids, y'all stop takin' the credit."

Speaking of those kids (his kids) ... Kanye dishes a little truth medicine (in his mind, anyway). He raps, "When you give 'em everything, they only want more // Boujee and unruly, y'all need to do some chores // Rich-ass kids, this ain't yo mama house // Climb on your brother's shoulders, get that Top Ramen out."

And, of course, the PD line everyone knew was coming ... "God saved me from that crash // Just so I can beat Pete Davidson's ass (Who?)." In the same breath, he shouts out his new GF, Julia Fox, rapping ... "And my new bitch bad // I know Illuminati mad."

The song is getting tons of love online, with people saying Kanye is back to rhyming like he used to during his 'College Dropout' days ... aka, the oh-so-toxic days.

Kim Kardashian Pete's Never Been to the House ... Ye Needs Boundaries!!!

Pete Davidson's never been to Kim Kardashian's house — despite what Kanye West might say — and there’s a simple reason for his limited access to her home ... boundaries.

Sources tell TMZ ... Ye's claim that PD was at Kim's house during the incident he described to Hollywood Unlocked is flat out false. We're told Pete was NOT there, nor was Kim ... she was at her office all day with her team.

While we weren’t given a definitive answer as to why Kanye may have been as restricted as he says, our sources did say this ... Kim's putting her foot down on letting Kanye come and go as he pleases, especially when it's at her property.

The reason, we're told, is because he's apparently made some people close to her -- including friends, fam and even staff -- upset during some of his recent visits. Unclear what exactly may have transpired or when, but we're told the incidents were serious enough for her to not let him have his run of the place when stopping by.

Bottom line ... Kim wants to create a more structured system between him, her and their kids -- which, we're told, would ideally involve Kanye calling ahead of time and scheduling things ... instead of him dropping in unannounced, presumably what he's been doing lately.

Our sources also say Kim's very disappointed by how Kanye's handling all this internal family stuff at the moment ... we're told she'd prefer to keep it private, and doesn't think it's good for the kids.

Speaking of the kids, one other point of clarification ... our sources tell us Pete hasn't met them before.

Kim K Living That 'Sweet Sweet Fantasy' ... First Island Vacay with Pete

From the looks of it, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's first bae-cation is off to a great start ... and she's celebrating in a teeny bikini.

Kim went into selfie mode, posting a shot of herself laying out in a brown two-piece, and included the caption, "Sweet sweet fantasy baby."

We're sure Pete will co-sign on that -- as we've told you, the couple arrived in the Bahamas yesterday via a private jet and boat ... and they were all smiles as they touched down.

So far, they're enjoying some good vibes and relaxation, despite their trip coming just as Kim's ex-hubby, Kanye West, has been on a string of dates with actress Julia Fox -- they were all over Miami last weekend, before hitting NYC for dinner, at Carbone, and a Broadway play.

It's hard to ignore Kim and Julia might have the same taste (literally) -- Carbone is Kim K's fave restaurant and Julia's been decked out in Balenciaga ... which has become Kim's signature over the last year. 🤔

If the jury's still out on whether Ye and Julia are a true romance or just-for-show-mance ... Kim and Pete have definitely gotten more serious. Remember, a few weeks ago, they rented out a movie theater to watch "House of Gucci"... and this was no ordinary theater. It was the Staten Island cinema Pete's been going to his whole life.

And now, the lovebirds are letting their hair down and enjoying each others' company ... island style.

Kim & Pete Things Are Headed South ... In the Bahamas!!!

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are all smiles and ready to soak up the sun during their first vacation as a couple ... picking the Bahamas as their maiden destination.

The duo arrived Wednesday with the help of a private jet and a boat ... when they finally hit land, they were clearly not dressed for the beach, but that's about to change.

We've learned they're staying at a private home right on the water with close friends, including Simon Huck.

One thing is for sure ... both Pete and Kim seem stoked to be together, massively grinning as they checked out the scenery. Our sources say Kim finds Pete "extremely charming" ... and her friends have given her their stamp of approval.

Of course, the trip comes on the heels of Kanye's whirlwind rendezvous with actress Julia Fox which saw them in Miami and New York.

As we reported, Ye and Julia had a double date at Carbone in Miami before heading to NYC Tuesday, where they took in Broadway's "Slave Play" before dining again at Carbone in the city.

One thing that's hard to ignore ... Kanye's been dressing Fox in Balenciaga, a brand Kim's almost exclusively worn over the last year. During the NYC date night, Julia first wore a blue coat before getting decked out in a coat, gloves, purse and top from Balenciaga. And, one more interesting thing ... Kim's favorite restaurant in NYC is ... Carbone.

While we've seen Kim and Pete go coast-to-coast, this is the first time they've traveled abroad ... but don't expect any couple's trips with Ye and Julia any time soon.

Kanye West If I Can't Have Kim Back ... I'll Make GF Julia Fox My New Version

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are finished, but it appears he's now trying to create a new version of his soon-to-be ex-wife -- dressing new girlfriend Julia Fox top to bottom in Balenciaga -- a brand that has become synonymous with Kim.

Check out Julia's looks over the last week or so as the pair hit Miami and NYC. First, Julia was spotted on South Beach rocking a Balenciaga top.

Fast forward to Tuesday night in NYC. Julia wore a blue coat to "Slave Play" on Broadway -- but was in a much different look as she and Ye left dinner at Carbone. Julia was dressed almost head-to-toe in black Balenciaga -- coat, gloves, purse and top -- when she and Kanye piled into their SUV after dinner. We should note -- Carbone is a favorite of Kim's.

Interestingly enough -- Julia seems to be a fan of Kim and her Skims brand -- posing in the shapewear in the past. Not to mention, she follows Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall and Scott Disick on Instagram.

Of course, Kim has almost exclusively been spotted in Balenciaga lately -- from the Met Gala to her opening monologue look on 'SNL.'

She's credited Kanye for encouraging her to take risks and be bold with her fashion choices, and now he seems to be bringing that influence to Julia too.

Kim Kardashian Files to be Legally Single ... Despite Kanye's Pleas

Kim Kardashian wants to move forward with her life as a legally single woman, and just filed docs to do so in her divorce with Ye ... TMZ has learned.

Kim filed legal docs Friday ... which if signed off by a judge, will make her officially single. She's essentially asking the judge to separate issues of child custody and property from marital status. Kim is also asking that her maiden name be restored ... aka, drop the "West."

It's interesting ... Kim's lawyer is disso queen Laura Wasser, who has frequently made similar moves with other celebrity clients, including Dr. Dre and Kelly Clarkson -- separating marital status from other issues. It allows people to get on with their lives ... settling other issues for a different day.

"RUN RIGHT BACK, BABY"
TMZ.com

What's especially interesting ... just hours before Kim filed for a change in her marital status, Ye went on stage at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum, and as he sang "Runaway" he ad-libbed over vocals at the end of the song to say, "Run back to me ... more specifically, Kimberly."

Kim attended the show, bringing the couple's kids North and Saint to watch dad do his thing and give some family support.

TMZ broke the story, Kim's already taken one big step in figuring out the property side of things -- buying Kanye out of their Hidden Hills Estate for $23 million. But, there are still other property issues that are outstanding. We're told there will not be any dispute over custody ... they will get joint custody and are committed to co-parenting.

One thing is for sure, divorce or not ... Kim and Kanye have, for the most part, remained a united front when it comes to their kids and emotional support. Just days ago they attended close friend Virgil Abloh's funeral together.

It wasn't the first time we'd seen Ye make a public play for his estranged wife, either. On Thanksgiving, he released a 5-minute-long video confessing to his issues with alcohol and times when he embarrassed Kim ... including wearing a MAGA hat.

Kanye has maintained Kim was "still" his wife in recent interviews, but this document would change that ... and make them legally separate entities.

Ye Kim is Still My Wife ... Divorce Not Final, Yet

IT AIN'T OFFICIAL
Revolt TV / Drink Champs

As far as Kanye West is concerned, Kim Kardashian is still his wife ... and while that might still be true legally, it doesn't seem like a long-term possibility.

Ye sat down with the guys on Revolt TV's "Drink Champs" Thursday in an interview that, based on Kanye's haircut, was recorded several weeks ago. Ye talked music, money, fashion and family ... but the part about his relationship with Kim seemed to cause the most buzz.

The former Mr. West says Kim is still his wife because there "ain't no paperwork" to say otherwise. Of course, the two have been going through a divorce -- which has remained very amicable -- for several months now ... it hasn't yet been finalized, so technically Kim and Kanye still are married.

We've seen both support each other in recent career endeavors -- Kim at Ye's "Donda" listening events and Kanye joining Kim in NYC when she hosted 'SNL.'

However, through all of those things -- the divorce was still moving forward -- and most recently, Kim bought the couple's Hidden Hills estate from Kanye for $23 million ... a sure sign the divorce won't be called off.

WEDDING READY
TMZ.com

Of course, Kim has also been hanging with Pete Davidson in the last week ... first hitting Knott's Berry Farm in CA before joining him twice in NYC for dinner.

Kanye has still not spoken publicly about Kim and Pete.

Kim & Kanye Dinin' Together on Sushi in the 'Bu

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were back to being Kimye ... at least for one night.

Kim and 'Ye reunited Thursday night for dinner at Nobu in Malibu. They weren't there alone. They joined by Kim's gal pal and CMO of SKIMS, Tracy Romulus, and her Grammy winning music producer hubby, Ray Romulus.

While she wasn't trying to keep a low-pro, Kim still looked kinda mysterious in her Balenciaga getup ... a purple gloved catsuit and a long maroon leather coat.  And, THAT has Ye written all over it.

We're told despite the way things looked (romantic dinner at Nobu?!?) things remain status quo -- they're still on good terms and trying to figure out their relationship.

As we reported ... Kim and Kanye's divorce is no longer a done deal. Things had been drastically improving behind the scenes. So good, in fact, our sources say it's possible Kim might withdraw the divorce petition. For now the divorce seems stalled ... so say our sources.

Kim & Kanye Lunch in the 'Bu ... Things Seem Chill

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had a lunch date ... the first time we've seen the pair without their kids in a looong time, and another sign they continue to have a very amicable relationship.

The ex-couple grabbed food together Thursday in Malibu with security in tow, and though it appeared they were trying to keep their hang on the DL ... the fact they're hanging at all suggests things are good between them despite being in the middle of a divorce.

As we've told you ... Kim and their kids have been very supporting of Ye as he's been dragging out the release of his upcoming 10th studio album, "Donda," by attending both of his listening events in Atlanta.

On top of that, Kim recently credited her estranged husband with helping her become the woman she is today by teaching her to be more true to herself and not care what everyone thinks.

WORDS OF WISDOM
Armchair Expert Umbrella

We broke the story ... Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February following a tumultuous year in which he suffered from bipolar episodes and had a controversial presidential run.

Everything signaled the divorce was about as amicable as it could be though ... and that still seems to be the case.
