Kim Kardashian’s 2019 Met Gala look turned into a bit of a fight between she and Kanye West.
In the latest episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the 38-year-old KKW Beauty mogul showed the 42-year-old rapper her Thierry Mugler dress the night before the big event, and Kanye told her that he doesn’t like her showing off her body because it’s affecting “his soul” as a married man.
“The corset, underwear, all of that vibe, I just feel like I just went through this transition where, from being a rapper, like, looking at all these girls, and looking at my wife, like, oh, my girl needs to be just like the other girls, showing her body off, showing this, showing that,” Kanye explained. “And I didn’t realize that that was affecting, like, my soul and my spirit as someone that’s married and loved, and the father of, like, now what about to be four kids. A corset is like a form of underwear. It’s hot. It’s like, it’s hot for who, though?”
Kim – who had been planning her custom Met Gala look for nearly a year – told Kanye that his last-minute disapproval gave her anxiety.
“You knew last night I was having really bad anxiety, and I don’t need any more negative energy for you to now say that you’re not into me wearing a tight dress,” Kim shared to which Kanye responded, “You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy.”
Kim then went on to explain to Kanye that he was the one that built her up to be the a sexy and confident person.
“You built me up to be, like, this sexy person and confident and all this stuff,” Kim said. “And just because you’re on a journey, and you’re on your transformation doesn’t mean that I’m in the same spot with you.”
