From Calabasas’ lips to God’s ears.
Kris Jenner has broken her historic silence on the dissolution of her daughter Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kanye West, saying in a new interview that “the goal” is for all parties — the couple’s children and themselves — to be happy.
“I think it’s always going to be hard any time …you know, [that] there’s a lot of kids,” Jenner said on The Kyle & Jackie O Show on Thursday. “The good thing about our family is that we are there for each other and supportive and we love each other very, very much — so all I want is for those two kids to be happy. And I want the kids to be happy. That’s the goal.”
West and Kardashian have four children: daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 1. Presumably, by “those two kids,” Jenner meant West and Kardashian and was not revealing a preference for a select set of her grandchildren.
The famous “momager” added, “I think we all want that for our families — just to be able to have the love and appreciation of one another, and that everyone’s okay. That’s what you want as a mom.”
It’s been one day shy of a month since Kardashian officially filed for divorce from West, though Page Six exclusively reported in January the couple were headed for a split. And with the final season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” premiering Thursday, it’s probable that more members of the famously media-savvy family begin addressing the split in public.
West and Jenner have had a fractious relationship — even going by the usual standard metric for in-laws: He once called her “Kris-Jong Un” in an eventually-deleted tweet from July 2020.
“They tried to fly in with 2 doctors to 51/50 me,” he added during the same stream-of-consciousness update, referring to the California welfare code providing for involuntary holds for individuals and adding the phrase “White supremacy” onto another update that mentioned Jenner and his then-wife.
And in January, a source told Page Six that West had become “sick of being involved with the Kardashians … Especially her mother [Kris Jenner], who looms large in all big decisions she makes.”
