Kanye West said he spent every day thinking about “how to reunite my family” and admitted to “embarrassing” his wife Kim Kardashian with her candidacy for the US presidency.
The rapper goes through a catalog of his faults and misdeeds in a long Thanksgiving prayer shared on Instagram.
Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February, citing irreconcilable differences, but the musician repeatedly calls her his “wife” throughout the five-minute monologue.
He reveals that the prayer was written on his son Saint’s way to his first football game, describing the youngster as his “mini-me” which is a mix of his two “favorite things – me and my wife’s face. “.
He continues, âAll I think about every day is how I put my family back together and how I heal the pain I have caused. I take responsibility for my actions.
He adds, âThe one thing all of my successes and failures have in common is me.
âLet’s start with A, alcohol. I drank to relieve stress, to relieve myself. Alcohol consumption has affected my health and the health of people around me. Because I already had a hair trigger temper and that just intensified it.
“B, episodes. I went into a manic episode in 2016, and was placed on heavy medication. Since then, I continued to take medication, which made me vulnerable to other episodes than my wife, my family and my fans had to endure.
He also admits to having a “bossy” ego and a temper that “hasn’t helped me keep my family together.”
He also talks about his doomed White House candidacy and his support for Donald Trump, saying: âMy God, my wife didn’t like me wearing the red hat.
âBeing a good wife, she just wanted to protect me and our family. I made myself and our family a target by not aligning with the Hollywood political stance and it was difficult for our marriage.
âThen I ran for the presidency without adequate preparation and without allies on either side. I embarrassed my wife in the way I presented information about our family in the one and, thank goodness, the only press conference.
West ends the prayer by saying, âThis Thanksgiving, I am grateful for the family my wife has given me.
“I am grateful for the life God has given me, and I am grateful for your time, your attention, and your patience.”
Kardashian is currently romantically linked with comedian Pete Davidson and the couple have been pictured holding hands on several occasions.
