The rapper, who legally changed his name to Ye, appeared on "Hollywood Unlocked" and discussed his strained relationship with the reality star. Ye claimed that despite the former flames' pending divorce, he still has Kardashian's back, as he allegedly stopped a second sex tape of her and Ray J from leaking.
“I went and got the laptop from Ray J myself that night,” the 44-year-old said during the interview, per Page Six, which was released Monday, January 24. “I met this man at the airport, then got on a red-eye, came back [and] delivered it to her at 8 a.m. in the morning.”
West went on to insist the Skims founder was so relieved when Ye returned the laptop to her that she broke down in tears. "You know why she cried when she seen it on the laptop? Because it represents how much she’s been used," he reportedly stated. "It represents how much people didn’t love her, and they just saw her as a commodity."
Kardashian's spokesperson acknowledged that there was a laptop but maintained there was not any new explicit content found on it. "The computer and hard drive collected were supposed to contain the original video and any unseen footage. After review, there was nothing sexual unseen, only footage on the plane on the way to Mexico and footage at a club and restaurant on the same trip," the spokesperson reportedly declared.
"Kim remains firm in her belief that there is no new second tape that exists. After 20 years, she truly wishes to move on from this chapter [and] focus instead on the positive things she continues to do as a mother, entrepreneur and advocate for justice reform," the rep added, according to the outlet.
During the "Donda" singer's podcast interview, he also discussed Kardashian's relationship with Pete Davidson and trying to spend time with his children amid the split.
As OK! reported, West previously claimed he was not allowed inside Kardashian's home while Davidson was there. "Don't play with my kids. Whoever y'all work for — whoever y'all think the family is working for — I’m telling you right now, don’t play with my children. It’s going to be all legal," he warned on Monday.
The "All Of The Lights" hitmaker revealed he asked two of his cousins to speak to the mother of his children and tell her she cannot have her security keep him away from their kids.
West, who has been linked to Julia Fox since New Year's Eve, explained he bought a home across the road from the KUWTK alum's Hidden Hills mansion in order to spend time with his children because he doesn't want anything to keep him away from them. The former power couple shares kids North, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
