Kim Kardashian had the support of Kanye West long before they became husband and wife.
The reality star of 38 years spoke about his relationship with West while talking to Van Jones in To be awakened to vote, revealing that they told the rapper not to go out with her because of her sexual past.
"We've been through a lot of things together, you know, I've known him for 15 years, I became friends with him maybe in 2006, 2007. I met him in [2002 or 2003]. I've known him forever. He has confronted the world for me when everyone said to him, "You can not go out with a girl with a sex tape, you can not go out with a reality girl, this is going to ruin your career," Kardashian recalled. "Everyone told him that & # 39; & # 39;
"For me, he was like," Oh, you're not going to tell me what to do, I'll let you know it's going to be fine. " And he was always that strength for me. So I will always love him and appreciate him for always defending me, "he continued.
the keeping up with the Kardashians Star said that when the world doubted her, West was there "to hold my hand and get up", so she does the same for him, even throughout his controversial comments on politics. Kardashian, who shares three children with West, voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, while her husband was an open supporter of President Donald Trump. On Tuesday, the rapper announced that he would be taking a step back from politics … after months of making headlines with his controversial views.
According to Kardashian, she and her husband can have a successful marriage despite their conflicting political opinions because she understands the heart of what he is saying.
"It takes about four years to write a song to explain, to communicate what you want to say. So, when he tweets something in two seconds, what is happening in his mind and what he thinks and what he is trying to say, he may not be the best communicator, but he has the best heart and I know what he wants to say. I believe in him and I think his message of what the [MAGA] What he represents for him is perhaps different from what he represents for other people, "he explained." He is very aware of that. He maybe does not express that. But what it means to him is something totally different and I trust him to explain it in his own way. "
Kardashian continued, sharing that she is "working" with her husband to better express what she really means.
"You know, the good thing is that he is so strong that he knows what he means," he said. "The people around him know what he wants to say and the people around him let him know that what he said might not be what he wants to say and he tries to help him work on it. But I know his heart, so we're working to express it. "
He added that West "will always do what he believes, whether it's something popular or not." And he has said it so many times, even in SNL, but I do not know if it was on because it was at the end, "I do not agree with all the policies, I do not even know all the policies, I am not a politician, I just say that this is what this means to me and I will use it because that is what I feel ".
"He wants to fight for free thought," he added.
