KIM Kardashian has admitted she regrets making a major parenting decision with her eldest daughter North and backed her ex-husband Kanye West’s reaction.
The Hulu personality opened up about a mistake she made in a recent interview with the 10-year-old 2023 issue of Time Magazine.
During the meeting, Kim, 42, spoke about the challenges she faces in allowing her teenage daughter to be so active on social media.
While mentioning an incident where North rapped the adult lyrics to an Ice Spice song on TikTok earlier this year, Kim admitted it wasn’t her finest moment as a parent.
“As soon as I saw the words, I was like, ‘Oh no, we’re recording this,'” said The Kardashians star. “I saw on the internet [people saying] “Kanye was right,” and maybe in this case he was right.”
Kim shares North and their three younger children: Saint, seven; Chicago, five; and Psalm, four, with her ex-husband Kanye West, 46, who was vocal on the social media app about his disapproval of their baby daughter.
However, the reality star stressed the importance of the child having access to TikTok, something Kim previously only did through her mother’s phone on their joint account.
“But she loves making slime videos and doing her little hair tutorials and I will fight for her to be creative,” the model said.
Still, Kim realized she’d made a miscalculation in allowing North to post the video, which was one of many North shared during the rapper’s visit to his $60 million Los Angeles mansion in March.
Kim deleted many of the clips after receiving backlash from fans, but kept one of North performing a “duet” with Ice Spice.
Last year, Kanye beat up his ex-wife for allowing North to be on the app, claiming it was “against his will.”
He posted a screenshot of North from one of her TikTok videos on Instagram and tagged Kim in the shot.
Kanye asked his followers, “Since this is my first divorce, I need to know. What should I do if my daughter is being placed on TIK TOK against my will?”
He also before shared his outrage via North wore makeup on the website and said it was “without my permission”.
Kim and North’s joint account was briefly deactivated in April, leading fans to believe it was in response to Kanye’s outbursts.
However, TMZ claimed the elementary school student was just “trying something new,” and the account came back a few hours later.
“They know nothing”
Kim opened up about her strict rules at home and becoming parents with her ex-husband in December 2022.
Speaking to podcast host Angie Martinez, she revealed that she’s doing her best to protect her kids from media negativity, including their dad’s online antics.
“My children know nothing. At school, some of my best friends are the teachers, so I know what’s happening during recess, I know what’s happening during lunch break, I hear what’s being talked about. None of that.” Children have ever said anything to my children.
She continued: “Social media, my kids don’t – North has a TikTok account on my phone and only on my phone. They — they’re just not on social media. You see nothing. I keep, you know – if things go down, I protect things in the house as much as possible, the TVs and the content.”
Kim got emotional as she said, “Co-parenting is really freaking hard.”
“I had the best dad and I had the best memories and the greatest experiences and that’s all I want for my kids as long as they can have that. That’s what I wish for them,” she concluded.
