On Keeping Up With the Kardashians Sunday night, we got an inside look at how Kim Kardashian’s 2019 Met Gala look came together and the drama that went down between her and Kanye West the night before she wore it.
We all remember Kardashian’s stunning, but controversial, Thierry Mugler dress she wore, which sparked major backlash due to her super cinched waist. Kardashian’s tiny waist was achieved by wearing a super tight corset, which was designed by famed corset maker Mr Pearl months before the Met Gala. However, on the eve of the big event, West told Kardashian that her showing her body off was affecting his soul and his spirit as a married man and father.
West explained, “The corset, underwear, all of that vibe, I just feel like I just went through this transition where, from being a rapper, like, looking at all these girls, and looking at my wife, like, oh, my girl needs to be just like the other girls, showing her body off, showing this, showing that. And I didn’t realize that that was affecting, like, my soul and my spirit as someone that’s married and loved, and the father of, like, now what about to be four kids. A corset is like a form of underwear. It’s hot. It’s like, it’s hot for who, though?”
Kardashian, who had been planning her custom Met Gala look for many months, immediately felt anxiety over her husband’s last-minute disapproval. “You knew last night I was having really bad anxiety, and I don’t need any more negative energy for you to now say that you’re not into me wearing a tight dress,” Kardashian told West, who responded, “You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy.” Kardashian then reminded her husband that it was him who built her up to be a sexy and confident person in the first place.
“You built me up to be, like, this sexy person and confident and all this stuff. And just because you’re on a journey, and you’re on your transformation doesn’t mean that I’m in the same spot with you,” said Kardashian.
Fans agreed with Kardashian on this one, and they were glad that she clapped back.
We don’t often see Kimye fights on KUWTK, but we all know that West has a temper. So it wasn’t too surprising that, in the end, the rapper stormed off as Kardashian stated, “That’s absolutely ridiculous.”
