Speaking with WSJ. Magazine, the billionaire beauty mogul opened up about her relationship with her estranged husband. Despite their impending divorce, they remain close and are also business partners in Kim’s shapewear brand Skims.
“He has a piece of Skims himself and gives [the team] inspiration but also information,” said Kim, who was named 2021 Brand Innovator by the magazine. “I think he enjoys the process.”
She bestowed praise on her ex, adding, “Kanye will always be the most inspirational person to me.”
Kim is now working on simplifying her brands, a move inspired by West. “He expressed that there were too many branding situations. He’s always super simple,” she said. “I really wanted to condense my beauty brands. I wanted one place, one website, where everything can live.”
Kim has collaborated with Fendi on a capsule collection, which launches Nov. 9, and is gearing up to relaunch her beauty brand, KKW Beauty, in order to give it a more “modern, elevated, sustainable” feel.
Back in February, the mother of four filed for divorce from her husband after nearly seven years of marriage. But the former couple continues to support each other. Kanye was by Kim’s side when she hosted “SNL” earlier this month and she was in attendance at his DONDA listening parties.
However, they are seemingly moving forward with their divorce. Kim was recently awarded the couple’s $60 million Hidden Hills home, and reportedly paid Kanye $20 million in cash to even out the property’s value.
