Kim Kardashian recently did an interview with Vogue in which she discussed everything from turning 40 to how she chooses to co-parent with her estranged husband Ye, formerly known as Kanye West. The interview came shortly after Ye publicly commented on Kardashian’s choice to allow their 8-year-old daughter, North, access to TikTok. Ye said that he objected to the decision and disagreed with Kardashian allowing their daughter to be on the app.
Despite the very public disagreement, Kardashian says that she’ll always be supportive of Ye when it comes to the co-parenting of their daughter.
“Make sure you are your co-parent’s biggest cheerleader, no matter what you’re personally going through,” Kardashian said in the interview. “You could be so hurt or angry at your ex, but I think in front of the kids, it always has to be ‘Your dad’s the best,'” she said.
Kardashian posted a brief story to Instagram in which she pledged to keep “all matters regarding our children” private.
“Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all,” she added.

In the same interview with Vogue, Kardashian, 41, spoke of her determination to make her 40’s a time of self-growth and awareness.
“For so long, I did what made other people happy,” she said. “And I think in the last two years I decided, I’m going to make myself happy. And that feels really good.
“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,” Kardashian added. “My 40s are about being Team Me. I’m going to eat well. I’m going to work out. I’m going to have more fun, spend more time with my kids and the people who make me happy. I’m going to put my phone down.”
