On the song "Wouldn't Leave," West rapped, "I said, 'Slavery a choice.' They say, 'How, Ye?' / Just imagine if they caught me on a wild day / Now I'm on fifty blogs gettin' fifty calls/My wife callin', screamin', say, 'We 'bout to lose it all!' / Had to calm her down 'cause she couldn't breathe / Told her she could leave me now / But she wouldn't leave."
"I cried because it is a lot of what we went through," Kardashian said of hearing the song for the first time. "I know my husband has the best intentions. He has the biggest heart."
She also told EXTRA that she did react with "screams," adding, "This time I wasn't so calm... I know what he meant so ultimately, after a week, I was calm... I think he explained it well in the song."
"I know his heart, so I know he'll always have that chance to explain himself when the time is right," she added.
Kardashian was also asked about the whole situation in another red carpet interview with ET. "Did I cry about it? Did I fight about it? Yeah," she admitted. "That's not stuff we put on social media -- I'm not going to start tweeting what my thoughts are, but we have those moments and that was the one song that he didn't really play for me until the last minute, so I heard that last minute and it meant a lot to me."
"I really like that song," Kardashian continued. "But yeah, we have different views sometimes, but that's my husband, you know?"
Kardashian did both interviews Monday night while attending the 2018 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, where host Issa Rae made a jab at West's comments.
"I'm about as fashionable as Kanye is black. Only when it's convenient," she reportedly joked, adding, "That joke was my choice, just like slavery."
