Kanye West is taking being a ‘born again’ Christian very seriously.
Kim Kardashian appeared with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe on The Real on Tuesday as she revealed that she and her 42-year-old husband have had ‘fights’ over his religious journey.
Things have even gotten to the point that the couple have removed the televisions from their children’s rooms and even took away daughter North’s, six, make-up.
The 39-year-old reality star was asked if she supports her the rapper’s new spiritual life journey as she replied: ‘I do think that, you know, he is my husband.
‘So, I obviously want to honour him and what he’s feeling. And he’s been going through this life change, and it’s mostly about the kids.’
She said that as the children – North, three-year-old son Saint, 21-month-old daughter Chicago, and five-month-old son Psalm – are getting older, Kanye has become increasingly cautious about the type of imagery that is in their home.
Kim explained: ‘We got rid of TVs in the kids’ rooms and removed makeup from North’s room – and he’s been very… had this, you know, epiphany of being this – not that he wasn’t an amazing dad – but being a little bit more strict as a dad and being very forceful on the imagery that’s in our household and what they see.
She said that she agrees that such drastic measures are good for their children but it has been a bone of contention when it comes to Kim herself.
The reality star explained: ‘But I’m always gonna be me… and so, we had that discussion and that fight.’
The audience applauded Kim’s statement about standing up for herself before she admitted that compromise is essential to a healthy relationship.
She said: ‘I think, at the end of the day that’s what marriage is. He’s gonna do things that I don’t agree with, and I support him, and vice versa.
‘So, with this, it was like we were like just having this conversation of what is too much and I am a mother of four, like, I am gonna be forty next year, like, when is it time to…’
The middle Kardashian sister is cut off by the audience’s applause about her age when host Tamera Mowry-Housely asks her to clarify if she is talking about Kanye’s religious journey.
Kim explained: ‘Yes. And just where he’s gone in his life and maybe things that he did a year ago, he probably wouldn’t be doing today.
‘And I love that beautiful journey, as well. And I think that is such a great example for our kids. Um… but, you know, there’s also that fine line of, you know, staying firm and doing what you feel comfortable with.
‘And I take a little bit of him and I respect what he’s saying and I totally compromise.’
Kanye began doing his weekly Sunday Service in January and currently has the No. 1 album on the Billboard charts with his first-ever gospel release: Jesus Is King.
