Cape Town – Kanye West admitted that he was seriously concerned about the future of his relationship with Kim Kardashian after making comments about slavery.

ICYMI: Kanye West sparks new outrage after calling slavery ‘a choice’

In an interview with the New York Times, the rapper reveals he had a very real conversation about the reality that Kim would want a divorce.

“There was a moment where I felt like after TMZ, maybe a week after that, I felt like the energy levels were low, and I called different family members and was asking, you know, ‘Was Kim thinking about leaving me after TMZ?’ So that was a real conversation.”

Kim, 37, has however, quite evidentially, stuck by her husband of four years, who she shares three children – North, 5, Saint, 2 and 5-month old Chicago – with.

While the 40-year-old’s remarks caused a huge backlash from A-list celebrities, the reality TV star revealed that her husband’s comments frustrated her, even though he had the best intentions.

Kim told Entertainment Online that she totally lost it and that it took her a week to calm down.

At the same time Kanye referred to Kim’s reaction in the song Wouldn’t Leave off his new album, Ye.

In the song, Kanye says: “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 . . .”
