The coronavirus pandemic was particularly personal for Kim Kardashian. In a preview for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the SKIMS founder explained that Saint West, her five-year-old son with estranged husband Kanye West, was battling COVID-19.
In the episode, set to air on E! next Thursday, May 27, the reality star explained, "Sainty just tested positive for COVID.” The popular reality show's 20th and final season was filmed back in 2020, and it is unclear when the little one contracted the virus.
The mother-of-four fearfully continued, saying, “North is saying she’s feeling sick.” There is no official word if the beauty mogul's eldest daughter also contracted the virus.
“I’m trying not to freak anyone out, but I’m just really worried,” Kardashian honestly admitted in a confessional.
This is not the first bout of COVID-19 that the Kardashian family has had to deal with during the global pandemic. Both Khloé Kardashian and Kanye battled the virus in 2020. The Good American founder described her experience with the virus, saying, “I suffer from migraines, but this was the craziest headache. I wouldn’t say it was a migraine. The coughing, my chest would burn when I would cough.”
The "Gold Digger" rapper, according to Kim, came in contact with the virus very early on, before the public was aware of what the virus was. The brunette beauty said, “Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on. It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help.”
She added, “It was a challenge because it was so unknown.”
Unfortunately, that was not the only recent challenge the star would face. In February, Kardashian officially filed for divorce from the musician after seven years of marriage. The two share four children together: North, 7, and Chicago, 3, Saint and Psalm, 2.
As OK! exclusively reported in February, West was "staying at a hotel" and not with his wife and kids. At the time, a source revealed, "Kanye did not return to the family home when he arrived in L.A. Instead he has been staying at a hotel and a private house" in order to "avoid any martial mess" with Kim.
