This Thanksgiving can’t be easy for Kanye West.
The fashion and hip-hop gazillionaire visited Skid Row on Thanksgiving Eve, and ended up ranting about how God wants him back with Kim Kardashian despite her moving on with a “low-key,” but very public romance with Pete Davidson.
“The narrative God wants is to see that we can be redeemed in all these relationships,” said. “We’ve made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve publically done things that were not acceptable as a husband, but right now today, for whatever reason — I didn’t know I was going to be in front of this mic — but I’m here to change the narrative.”
West then went on to blast Kardashian’s reality show networks E! and Hulu, explaining, “I’m not letting E! write the narrative of my family. I’m not letting Hulu write the narrative of my family … I am the priest of my home,” he said.
West, 44, was on Skid Row to take a meeting and “share ideas” with the CEO and president of LA Mission, a nonprofit that helps fight homelessness in Los Angeles.
During his speech, he added, “I have to be next to my children as much as possible. So, when I’m out the house, I’ve got a house right next to the house. I’m doing everything to be right next to the situation,” he said.
West, seemingly realizing how random his speech may have been coming off, added “I’m trying to express this in the most sane way, the most calm way possible, but I need to be back home. “
A source at the event told Page Six West was “under the radar,” before he got on stage and spoke, and added that his current family situation wasn’t all he talked about.
“He had never been there and wanted to see everything going on. He talked about saving the world and how he had all these ideas to work with LA Mission,” they said.
Still, West had a lot to get off his chest concerning his current situation at home.
“If the enemy can separate Kimye, there’s going to be millions of families that feel like that separation is ok… but when God brings Kimye together, there’s going to be millions of families that are going to be influenced to see that they can overcome the work of the separation, of trauma the devil has used to capitalize to keep people in misery while people step over homeless people to go to the Gucci store,” he concluded.
West said in an interview taped last month that he still wants to be with Kim, though he’s moved on from her in one aspect at least by dating model Vinetria. Kardashian filed for divorce from him in February after seven years of marriage and four children together: North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
A source close to the Kardashians told Page Six recently that the family is “worried” about West as Kim’s romance with Pete Davidson heats up, saying, “He can’t be taking this well.”
