Kim Kardashian believes Kanye West has done more damage to her kids than her sex tape ever will

Kim Kardashian believes Kanye West has done more damage to her kids than her sex tape ever will

It's been a tough year for Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian believes that Kanye West has done more damage to their four children than she or her sex tape ever will.

It's been a rough year for the reality TV icon, who has had to deal with her ex-husband speaking ill of her in his songs, in interviews, and in his social media posts.

Throughout it all, no matter what he says about her, no matter how many of her text messages he screenshots and leaks online, no matter how personal his song lyrics and music videos get, Kim has chosen to stay silent. And all for the sake of her children.

Kim shares kids North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm with Kanye West.

Now, though, as season three of The Kardashians drops on Hulu, Kim has revealed that the stress of Ye's tirades is starting to affect her health, and opened up about how horrific the past few months have been behind the scenes.

In the first episode of the new season, Kim reveals that the stress of dealing with Kanye has been so intense that her psoriasis has flared up once again.

The autoimmune skin condition that both Kim and her mum Kris struggle with is commonly triggered by stress. So it's no wonder that the reality star's skin is totally inflamed.

In one scene, Kris warns Kim that her psoriasis flare-up, which has spread all over her legs, is a result of her being 'stressed out'.

Kim simply replies: "Well, tell the father of my children to stop acting up and then I won't stress out and get psoriasis."

In another scene, Kim reveals that she has also been suffering with serious anxiety as a result of Ye's constant attacks.

"I spent my whole morning having an anxiety attack," she tells Kris. "I felt like I just couldn't breathe all day."

Kim has stayed silent for her kids' sake.

Sharing further details to the camera, Kim explains: "There's been a lot going on with Kanye right now. Even through all of the craziness of everything that Kanye says about us, I never comment. I never post."

Later, Kim speaks about her ex-husband's decision to post screenshots of her text messages on social media.

She admitted, quite defeatedly, that she can no longer text the father of her children without presuming her words will end up online.

"I think at this point, I just assume that everything I text Kanye is gonna be put on the internet."

And on top of that, Kanye has wasted no opportunity to bring up Kim's infamous sex tape, freely mentioning it whenever he rants about the Skims founder.

Opening up about how his comments make her feel, Kim said: "Even just how he looks down on me for my tape, and brings it up all over town, all over the media. Like, thanks for reminding people once again.

"All of his shenanigans - I don't even know what the f*** to call it - is gonna be far more damaging to my kids one day than my tape will ever be."

Kanye's comments about Kim have caused her so much stress that her health is suffering.

Unable to hold back her tears any longer, she sobbed as she vented: "I have to sit there and not say anything ever, because I know one day, my kids will appreciate that.

"S**t could be going down and I get in the car and... the kids want to blast dad's music. And I'm like, 'He's the best! Yeah!' And I put it on and we're singing along and inside I'm dying.

"I will be his biggest cheerleader to them forever and one day they'll see for themselves. I'll answer whatever they want me to.

"The one that was supposed to protect me - and still does interviews saying they'll be my forever protector - is the one that is hurting me the most."
