Although both have “moved” on, Kanye is still talking about his soon-to-be ex-wife, sometimes slamming her and other times expressing how much he wishes to reconcile with her.

In a candid interview that aired on Thursday 22 September on ABC’s Good Morning America, Kanye did something he rarely does, which is to apologise.

The Yeezy founder spoke about how he regrets the way he uses social media sometimes to bring bad publicity into Kim’s life.

“This is the mother of my children, and I apologise for any stress that I have caused, even in my frustration, because God calls me to be stronger,” Kanye said.

Kim and Kanye have previously been at loggerheads about co-parents. In March, the music producer lashed out at Kim for allowing their eldest daughter, North West, to share videos on TikTok. The Gold Digger rapper had said at the time that he has spoken to the reality TV star about their children being on social media, saying he forbade it.

In his interview with Good Morning America, Kanye also expressed his belief that his voice, as his children’s father, has been stifled.

“I do have a voice, but I had to fight for it.

“I’m their dad. It has to be co-parenting. It’s not up to only the woman. Like, men have a choice also. Men’s voices matter.”

In addition, he said that as a dad and as a Christian he has a right to have a voice on what his kids are wearing, what they’re watching and what they’re eating.

“I have a platform where I get to say what so many dads can’t say out loud,” he added.
