Kim Kardashian shuts down paparazzo who tried asking about a Kanye West report in front of her kids
- Kim Kardashian told a paparazzo to not ask about an incident reportedly involving Ye around their children.
- TMZ reported that Ye was named a suspect in a battery investigation after he threw a woman's phone.
Kim Kardashian shut down a paparazzo who asked her about her ex-husband Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, and his reported involvement in a battery incident.
A video published by Page Six shows Kardashian exiting a building with her children North West, 9, and Saint West, 7, where the family was attending North's basketball game on Friday, according to the publication.
In the footage, a member of the gathered paparazzi asks Kardashian what she thinks about Ye "hitting someone" and mentioning a "paparazzi's phone." The comments seemingly reference a Friday TMZ report and footage that appeared to show Ye throwing a woman's phone in the street.
"Do not talk to me about that in front of my kids," Kardashian says while helping her children get in the car.
In the background of the video, a child's voice can be heard yelling, "please leave." It's unclear which child is speaking in the video.
Per TMZ, deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff's Department were called to the scene of the incident reportedly involving Ye at 4:30 on Friday. It took place near the complex where North had a basketball game, according to the outlet.
Kardashian said on Angie Martinez's "In Real Life" podcast in December that she deliberately keeps news about her ex-husband from their four children in order to "protect" them from the controversy surrounding their father. The comments followed Ye making antisemitic comments and wearing a "White Lives Matter" shirt, among other actions that eventually led to brands like Adidas dropping him.
"In my home, my kids don't know anything that goes on in the outside world," Kardashian told Martinez on the podcast. "I'm holding on by a thread. I know I'm like so close to that not happening, but while it's still that way, I will protect that to the end of the earth as long as I can."
