The rumors about Kim Kardashian having an affair with Drake came to life courtesy of Kanye West. That's what Kim alleges in the premiere episode of The Kardashians season 3, out now on Hulu.
"He was the one that started a rumor that said I was hooking up with Drake, having an affair, his whole marriage he accused me of that, publicly," she said. "So the person that's supposed to protect me the most publicly would accuse me of having an affair. I really can't wrap my head around how he thinks he is a protector."
The rumors about Kim and Drake have gone on for some time, with some believing it started with Drake's mention of "Ki-Ki" in the song "In My Feelings." At the time, Kim wrote, "Never happened. End of story," but Ye went on to vent about Drake's response.
“The fact that it’s people making rumors or thinking that you f***** my wife and you not saying nothing and you carrying it like that. That don’t sit well with my spirit," he said in an Instagram Live. During his Dream Champs appearance, he confirmed that Drake didn't sleep with Kim, but said Drake made music and general moves that suggested they were involved.
Kim vented about trying to stay quiet amid their public feuds.
"It's just always so intense. I don't want to engage with a public feud with him," she said in the Kardashians episode. "Hurt me, just keep it with me. I don't want to talk about this anymore, let's talk about something else."
She added that all Ye's shenanigans are "gonna be far more damaging to the kids one day than my tape will ever be."
