Kim Kardashian ‘loved having ex Kanye West’s support’ at SNL though he ‘made writers cut joke about his past tweets’

KIM Kardashian “loved” having her ex Kanye West’s “support” at Saturday Night Live at the weekend.

The KUWTK star, 40, and rapper, 44, are reportedly in a much “better” place than in February when she filed for divorce.

A source told PEOPLE: “Kim and Kanye are friends, but that’s it. She is still moving forward with the divorce.

“She loves having Kanye’s support though. They were not in a good place around the time Kim filed for divorce.

“She is so happy that things are better now. It’s all very beneficial for the kids.”

Kim was accompanied by Kanye as she headed to the SNL studios before her big hosting debut on Saturday.

The Sun exclusively revealed this week that Kanye had a lot of control over what went into the comedy show sketches.

Sources said he banned Kim from joking about his tweet calling Kris Jenner a “white supremacist” in her “People’s Kourt” sketch.

Kanye made the comments about Kris last July while battling his bipolar disorder.

He had shared a text exchange seemingly between him and Kris, in which he messaged: “This Ye, you ready to talk now or are still avoiding my calls?”

He added: “This Ye, you wanna talk or go to war?”

Kanye had captioned the screenshot: “White supremacy at its highest no cap”.

The Yeezy mogul later added: “Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval… that’s not what a wife should do White supremacy”.

SNL writers allegedly wanted to poke fun at the tweets, but Kim wasn’t keen.

An insider told us: “Originally the People’s Kourt sketch had more aggressive tweets Kanye has posted.

“The writers wanted to include some from last summer, like calling Kim and Kris white suprematists but Kim shut that down.

“Kris and Kanye agreed.”

The Sun has contacted Kanye’s rep for comment.


In the Kourt sketch, comedian Chris Redd played Kanye complaining about some of his tweets and insisting he didn’t post them.

He was ripped for tweeting, “Who’s seen the play Wicked? I seen it four times,” as well as “What do I have to do to get a simple Persian rug with cherub imagery,” and “Wiz Khalifa, I like your pants”.

Each time, Chris insisted, “That’s not me! I didn’t post that!” while Heidi Garner – playing Kim in her Met Gala outfit – hit back: “Yes, you did!”

Elsewhere in her Saturday Night Live debut, Kim shocked fans with her monologue as she poked fun at herself, ex Kanye West and the photoshop accusations that surround her family.


Slamming Kanye’s presidential run, she said: “I know we are divided as a country but I would love America to come together.

“That’s why I am running for… just kidding guys, I’m not running for president. We can’t have 3 failed musicians in the family.

“I married the best rapper of all time. Not to mention the richest Black person in America.

“We also have four amazing kids, which is why when I divorced him, it came to just one thing, his personality.”
