Kris Jenner Gets Kandid On Kanye: ‘This Is A Side That Nobody’s Seen Before’
Kris Jenner didn't hold back when it came to talking about her son-in-law during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
The Kardashian matriarch spilled all the tea in her chat with the famous host, speaking out on everything from Yeezy's chummy relationship with Trump, to her thoughts on his erratic Twitter rants.
When Ellen asked about the rapper making headlines for his controversial political stances on social media, she maintained that her first priority is being supportive of her family.
"My job as a mum is just to be there for my kids and be supportive and love them,” she said. “Kanye’s an amazing son-in-law. He’s an amazing dad and husband and friend and brother-in-law. So we know my son-in-law, Kanye.”
“I think what I really want to do is be there to help him be the best version of himself that he can be,” she continued.
"You’re always concerned when there’s controversy and drama and things are going on and it’s sometimes worrisome. When you have six kids and extended family and nine grandchildren, there’s a lot going on. And I just want to be there and be supportive and be there if he needs me. That’s really where my heart is.”
The KUWTK star admitted that she "can't control what somebody else is doing".
“I can’t always control what any of them do at any time,” she told DeGeneres. “It’s a lot. Kim always says, ‘I can’t control what somebody else does,’ and I feel the same way. It’s really hard. You all know, you have kids and they might have a totally different opinion about something or a different view about something. And his are very strong. He has a big voice and he has a lot to say.”
In regards to his meeting with President Trump -- which raised more than a few eyebrows -- she spilled to Ellen that she wished Kanye would have shared some of his thoughts to the president without cameras around.
"It was very spontaneous. The stuff that they were talking about, when they got to the airplane, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, that is so Kanye,’ ” Jenner confessed on Ellen. “He was sharing thoughts and things of himself. But I would rather he share some of that stuff privately.”
She continued, “He definitely has his own thoughts and opinions and he gets very excited about that. You’ve known him a long time, I’ve known him a long time, and he does have different sides to him. And this is a side that nobody’s seen before.”
