The rapper courted the biggest controversy of his career last month when he made comments in an interview claiming that 'slavery was a choice' for black people.
Now, Kim has spoken about how much of an impact her husband's remarks had on her, when she appeared at the CFDA Awards yesterday.
"‘I cried because it is a lot of what we went through," she said. ‘I know my husband has the best intentions. He has the biggest heart. I know his heart, so I know he’ll always have that chance to explain himself when the time is right.’
She continued: "This time I wasn’t so calm… I know what he meant so ultimately, after a week, I was calm… I think he explained it well in the song.’
The song she's referring to is 'Wouldn't Leave', a track from West's new album 'Ye', which apparently documents the fallout from the TMZ interview and refers to Kim 'callin' and 'screamin'.
See the lyrics below:
"They say, "Build your own"—I said, "How, Sway?"
I said, "Slavery a choice"—they said, "How, 'Ye?"
Just imagine if they caught me on a wild day
Now I'm on fifty blogs gettin' fifty calls
My wife callin', screamin', say we 'bout to lose it all
Had to calm her down 'cause she couldn't breathe
Told her she could leave me now, but she wouldn't leave"
