Reality star Kim Kardashian is attempting to do some damage control on her husband’s behalf once again.
The mother of three took to Twitter on Monday morning one day after Kanye West held his Sunday service and seemingly defended R. Kelly amid backlash from Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary.
During Ye’s second Sunday service event on Jan. 13, he played a number of his songs assisted by a choir and took a moment to give his thoughts on the Surviving R. Kelly discussion. In a since-deleted clip from Kris Jenner’s live stream, Ye can be heard saying,
“They just gonna pull up full documentaries on him.” He continues, “Then they gonna come with the Michael [Jackson] documentary. … We can all enjoy all their music all we want. I thought I wasn’t going to go there today. If we’re gonna tear down artists, let’s go ahead and take [Leonardo] da Vinci out the Lourve. Let’s take down all the art.”
In addition to referencing Surviving R. Kelly, Kanye also touched on the Michael Jackson documentary “Leaving Neverland” that will highlight the King of Pop’s alleged misconduct with children. According to Complex, the film is set to premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and focuses on two boys who both alleged that the pop star sexually abused them while they were underage.
Well, Kim K was quick to clear up her husband’s words, which she claims “were in context to his own experiences, not defending anyone else”:
“I’m going to nip this in the bud right now. Kanye was speaking about his own experience of everyone quick to say they are cancelling him because of differences in opinion & not being perfect. The analogies were in context to his own experiences, not defending anyone else.” Kim tweeted Monday morning.
An hour later she returned to add that Kanye “is not condoning anyone’s actions or unacceptable disgusting behavior”:
“I want to make it very clear, he is not condoning anyone’s actions or unacceptable disgusting behavior. My husband’s words are being taken out of context due to timing.” she added.
