“SNL making my wife say ‘I divorced him’ because they just wanted to get that bar off, and I ain’t never even seen the papers, we’re not even divorced,” Ye told the podcast.
“That ain’t no joke to me. My kids want their parents to stay together. I want us to be together.”
The 44-year-old rapper later added that he believes the media are invested in trying to portray friction between Kim Kardashian and himself.
“They want it to be a new wedding, a new episode, a new TV show. Then they have people all around and my wife here, you know, this publicist that’s next to her – I don’t fuck with her,” he said.
