As West storms out of the room, Kim calls the whole situation “absolutely ridiculous.”
Kim Kardashian was already a ball of anxiety about stepping out to the Met Gala wearing a skin-tight dress she couldn’t even go to the bathroom in — but this last minute criticism from Kanye West sent her over the edge.
On Sunday night’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” viewers witnessed a rare tense moment between the married couple after Kardashian tried on her corseted Thierry Mugler dress a day before the main event.
After seeing her in the sexy look, West had some complaints.
“Like the corset, underwear, all of that vibe, I just feel like I just went through his transition from being a rapper, looking at all these girls, 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 was affecting my soul, my spirit as someone that’s married and loved and the father of four kids,” he told her.
“A corset is like a form of underwear, it’s hot. It’s like, it’s hot for who though?” he continued, as Kim looked on, clearly frustrated with the conversation.
“So the night before the Met, you’re going to come in here and say that you’re not into a corset vibe?” she shot back at him. “You’re giving me really bad anxiety.”
When Kanye asked why his comments were setting her off, she shot back, “You knew last night I was having really bad anxiety and I don’t need anymore negative energy, for you to say you’re not into me wearing a tight dress.”
“You are my wife and it affect me when pictures are too sexy,” he replied. Keep in mind, all of this was in a room full of people, as Kim’s team was all on hand for the fitting.
“You built me up to be this sexy person and confidence and all this stuff,” she told him, annoyed as ever. “Just because you’re on a journey and you’re on your transformation, doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you!”
With that, West stormed out of the room, as Kim called his behavior “absolutely ridiculous.”
The next time we saw them together, everything was totally okay again as they made their way to the Met Gala. Following the event, he told her it was “so fire” inside, as Kim told everyone West was “like a social butterfly” during the soiree.
