“If they don’t know things that are being said, why would I ever bring that energy to them? That is real, heavy, grown-up s*** that they are not ready to deal with,” she said.
She further said that her kids will one day thank her for not thrash-talking their father, who has often made accusations against Kardashian and her family. on social media or during interviews. “When they are, we will have those conversations. One day, my kids will thank me for not sitting here and bashing their dad. I could,” she added.
“I definitely protected him,” she said in the interview, “and I still will in the eyes of my kids. For my kids. So, in my home, my kids don’t know anything that goes on (in) the outside world.”
The former celebrity couple finalised their highly-publicised divorce in November, following West’s on-and-off social media play-by-play of the situation.
