Grammy-winner and billionaire fashion mogul Kanye “Ye” West revealed Thursday his ex-wife Kim Kardashian “didn’t like” him wearing his red Donald Trump-affiliated “MAGA” cap during his failed 2020 presidential bid that “embarrassed” her.
The 44-year-old West, who has legally changed his name to Ye, made the revelation when he shared a five-minute long Instagram clip that opened with him saying how thankful he was for his friends, family, fans and even the haters.
After discussing his ego and temper, Ye went on to talk about religion, telling fans: “Self-righteous Christian behaviour. When I got saved, it did not immediately make me a better person. It made me a self-righteous Christian.”
He then broached politics and wearing the “Make America Great Again” hat; something his wife Kardashian was less than enthused by.
“Good lord my wife did not like me wearing the red hat,” West shared. “Being a good wife, she just wanted to protect me and our family. I made me and our family a target by not aligning with Hollywood’s political stance and that was hard for our marriage.
“Then I ran for president without proper preparation and no allies on either side. I embarrassed my wife in the way that I presented information about our family during the one and thank God only press conference.”
The prayer came after West attended Los Angeles Mission’s Annual Thanksgiving event on Wednesday alongside L.A. Mission CEO Troy Vaughn.
He said in an address at the charity event held to help those living near Skid Row: “The narrative God wants is to see that we can be redeemed in all these relationships.
“We’ve made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband, but right now today, for whatever reason — I didn’t know I was going to be in front of this mic — but I’m here to change the narrative.”
As Breitbart News reported, West based his 2020 run for high office by proclaiming America “will build a stronger country by building stronger families” after previously showing his support for President Donald Trump by wearing his MAGA hat.
The Jesus Is King crooner declared that in order to build a stronger nation, Americans must build stronger families, adding that “families are the building blocks of society.”
West also noted he is “concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry” about abortion.
“I cried at the thought of aborting my first born and everyone was so concerned about me… I’m concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this subject,” he said.
