Rapper Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian clashed during last night’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians over the supposedly ‘revealing’ outside she wore to the Met Gala.
Kim, 38, spent an entire eight months perfecting her Thierry Mugler look for the Costume Institute Gala in New York City, but was left ‘anxiety’ ridden when her husband slammed her appearance at the last minute.
The couple’s disagreement took place ahead of the annual costume gala back in May, but was only aired last night. Kim admitted that the dress was so tight she could ‘barely breathe’ and revealed she was even prepared to pee herself in order to go to the bathroom in the tight gown, in a behind the scenes clip of her fitting.
The reality star had long felt like an outsider to the fashion world and her seventh appearance at the ball was especially important to her, as it also marked her first solo US Vogue cover.
However, Kanye made it clear he wasn’t a fan of his wife’s impossibly tight corseted look.
The 42-year-old rapper frowned at the underwear-style of her dress, claiming at her last final fitting that it didn’t match with his personal evolution from being a single guy to a married man.
‘I just made this transition from being a rapper, looking at all these girls, looking at my wife,’ he said.
‘Like, ”Oh, my girl needs to be like the other girls, showing her body off.”
‘I didn’t realise that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that’s married and loved, and the father of now, what—about to be four kids?,’ Kanye said.
At the time, Kimye were just days away from becoming parents to their fourth child Psalm, who they welcomed via a surrogate, but the fashion event was so important to Kim that she risked missing the birth.
‘A corset is like a form of underwear,’ Kanye argued. ‘It’s hot. It’s like, it’s hot for who, though?’
‘So the night before the Met, you’re gonna come in here and say that you’re not into a corset bust?’ Kim asked. ‘I’m getting really bad anxiety. What are you talking about? I don’t need any more negative energy for you to now say that you’re not into me in a tight dress,’ she snapped back.
‘You are my wife, and it affects me when pictures are too sexy,’ Kanye said. ‘You built me up to be this sexy person and confident and all this stuff,’ Kim exclaimed. ‘And just because you’re on a journey and you’re on a transformation doesn’t mean that I’m in the same spot with you.’
‘Alright, cool,’ Kanye said, leaving. ‘That’s absolutely ridiculous,’ Kim muttered.
Over the course of one week, the original internet breaker made time for the Met Ball, two dress fittings, two shoots for her cosmetics line KKW Beauty, law-school prep, a baby shower, and a music video appearance with Paris Hilton.
The dress took 20 minutes for the star to get on and needed an assistant to help get her into the fitted dress. Kim confessed that she wanted to wear the dress because her father Rob Kardashian used to buy her Thierry Mugler’s fragrance, which made her feel connected to the designer.
She said: ‘Being able to sit with him is such a full circle dream come true. I has a corset made by Mr Pearl because I wanted to completely accentuate my body to make it as campy as possible. It doesn’t hurt to wear it, but it feels like you’re doing a crunch and can’t get out of it, you literally can’t breathe.’
