Kim Kardashian says Covid-19 a ‘reset’ to give ‘planet a break’ as she tries to save marriage with Kanye West
Kim Kardashian raised eyebrows as she said the COVID-19 pandemic was probably a "reset" to "give the planet a break." The fashion and reality TV mogul's comments come amid reports of a rocky marriage with rapper husband Kanye West, The Sun reported. Speaking to Grazia, Kim reflected on how the deadly virus has brought the world to a screeching halt, and shared her positive outlook about the same. "Maybe our planet needed a break," she said. "Maybe we all needed a break. Maybe this was the reset? I try to look at it that way."
The 39-year-old revealed that the contagion hit the Kardashian-West household around the same time "Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson announced that they had Covid." "Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on," Kim said. "It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help." The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star recalled how she took care of her husband throughout the ordeal. "I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn’t feeling good. It was a challenge because it was so unknown," she revealed. "Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time."
43-year-old Kanye revealed his diagnosis during an interview with Forbes in April this year, when he noted how he suffered "chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers," and that he kept "looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it." "I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!" Kanye added.
That said, Kim's hopeful comments relating to the pandemic come after a rather tough year for the famous couple. Kim and Kanye have been working towards saving their marriage after the latter's public mental breakdown formed cracks in their relationship.
Last month, an insider claimed Kim was considering filing for divorce from Kanye. The 43-year-old rapper has not had the easiest year, and his struggles with his bipolar disorder and stance on anti-abortion laws have taken a massive toll on their failing marriage, a source told Page Six. The insider claimed, "Kim has the whole divorce planned out but she’s waiting for him to get through his latest episode." Over the last few months, West has been very vocal about his pro-life stance and had told a rally crowd how he and Kim had almost aborted their oldest child, North West. During the July event, West said through tears, "I almost killed my daughter. No more Plan B, Plan A."
However, despite the ups and downs, the couple is now trying to put the past behind them. Kim recently shared a picture of the family, writing, "Be thankful, smile more, spend more time with family, and don’t stress the small things. This is our one chance at life. Don’t let anyone or anything take away your happiness."
Kim and Kanye tied the knot in 2014 and have four kids together, namely North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, one.
