Kim Kardashian reveals she didn’t speak to Kanye for 8 months after filing for divorce

“Right now, it’s good.”

Kim Kardashian has revealed that she and Kanye West went through periods of not speaking at all since she filed for divorce in February of last year.

The reality star, who is now focusing on co-parenting her four children with the rapper, spoke about navigating the divorce during an appearance on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast.

“We went off and on. You know, we went about eight months without even speaking to each other at the beginning of the divorce,” she shared. “And then we started talking again and I went to the Donda premiere.”

The former couple sparked rumours of a reconciliation last summer when Kim attended the listening party for Kanye’s album Donda, but it seems Kim was just supporting the father of her children. Fans also thought the former couple attended the Met Gala together in matching face-covered outfits last September, until it was revealed that Kanye wasn’t in attendance and the man beside Kim’s side was actually Balenciaga Creative Director Demna Gvasalia.

“I mean, he would still see the kids and stuff. Him and I just took a minute of not talking,” Kim continued on the podcast, speaking of her and Kanye’s communication hiatus. “I think in relationships, it’ll be like that.

“I hope we, you know, are the co-parenting goals at the end of the day. I look back and my mom and dad went through their hard time and it took people a minute to readjust.”

The Skims founder went on to reference Kanye’s public attacks on her and her boyfriend Pete Davidson, saying that it “doesn’t mean that maybe because he expressed himself in a certain way that he’s not an amazing person and amazing friend”.

“If you were in a situation and you were hurting and that was your way of expressing yourself, like, I don’t judge,” she said. “We’re always going to be cool and family, even if it doesn’t look that way. Like, it’ll always end up that way. So everything will always be okay.”

As for where the exes currently stand after an intense number of parenting disputes played out on social media, Kim says, “Right now, it’s good.”

“When things are calm, we don’t really communicate. But I think that’s okay sometimes, you know,” she said. “And I think that we will. We always will. That’s just who I am.

“I spent a decade of my life with this person and I just have so much love for him. So that’ll never change, but it doesn’t mean that they’re the right one for you and that’s okay too.”

She continued: “We both love the time we spent together. You know, I think that we’ll always have that and always cherish that. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out for whatever reasons, but no matter what, I always just think of the positive times.”

Kim and Kanye tied the knot in 2014 and share children North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.
