Kim Kardashian SNL live – Host & ex Kanye West ‘made eyes at each other’ after star’s ‘cruel’ divorce skit

KIM Kardashian and ex Kanye West reportedly waved and ‘made eyes at each other,’ during the star’s scathing monologue.

The TV star slammed Kanye’s failed presidential run and he reportedly went backstage after her monologue.

Kim said Kanye is “the best of all time,” and called him “the richest Black man in America, a talented legit genius who gave me four incredible kids.”

She then described her divorce with the rapper. “So when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to one thing – his personality. I know it sounds mean, but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth. And if there’s one thing that I always strive to be, it’s genuine.”

A source close to the show told Page Six that during Kim’s performance, her and Kanye “kept waving and making eyes at each other.”

In addition to poking fun of her ex, she also joked about her family.

According to an insider close to Kim the Saturday Night Live writers are “impressed” with how much she is “willing to poke fun of herself.”
