Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have made a rare public appearance together without their children, amid their ongoing divorce battle.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have seemingly proved their ongoing split is amicable, as they stepped out for a meal together on August 19. The rapper, 44, and the KKW Beauty founder, 40, were seen grabbing lunch in Malibu, marking the first sighting of the pair without their four children in some time. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum, who shares kids North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, with Kanye, was attempting to keep a low profile as she got out of a car with her hair slicked back into a bun.
The former couple both appeared to be rocking black ensembles, as they stepped out with security in tow. As fans would know, the mom of four filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021 after seven years of marriage and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. She most recently opened up on the Aug. 11 episode of the We are Supported by… podcast, telling hosts Kristen Bell and Monica Padman that ‘Ye helped her become more confident.
“I got to a point — and maybe it was being in a relationship with Kanye for a decade and someone that absolutely didn’t care about likeability factor or what any of perception of him was as long as he was true to himself,” she said. “That taught me so much in the best way of just being me and truly not care as much about what other people thought.”
Kim went on to note that although she’s “more vain than the average person,” she can still ignore other’s opinions of her. “It is totally okay to change your mind and to want different things and to start off being people pleaser and to ending up not being a people pleaser,” Kim explained. “Just because you’re not doesn’t mean you’re an a**hole.”
The SKIMS founder continued, “As long as I’m myself and as long as I’m doing it the way that I want to, like, you have one life and you’re living it for you. That taught me to just be more confident in myself and truly not care as much of what other people thought.”
