Kanye West Gave Kim Kardashian an Unexpected Gift Before Her “SNL” Debut
Kim Kardashian’s past with ex-boyfriend Ray J has been a looming subject on “The Kardashians,” but her ex-husband, Kanye West, may have found a way to finally put it to rest.
The first two episodes of the Disney+ series revisit Kardashian’s infamous sex tape scandal, which resurfaced after Ray J’s former manager reportedly threatened to release never-before-seen footage. In the show, the reality TV star is visibly stressed about the situation amid her “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut. But in episode three, West offers her a gift to end the sex tape drama once and for all.
To celebrate Kardashian’s TV gig, West revealed that he left New York to fly all the way to Los Angeles and retrieve something just for her. The gift was such a shock that a tearful Kardashian called her entire family into her “SNL” dressing room to see the gift. “So Kanye flew home last night and he came back this morning, and I want to show you guys what he got me,” she said before opening a black suitcase. “He got me all of the sex tape back.”
Kardashian confirmed that West met up with Ray J at the airport to recover all the electronic devices with the sex tape on it. The unexpected gesture seems odd to offer as a present, but Kardashian was very appreciative that the stress of the tape was no longer hanging over her head. “I know Kanye did this for me, but he also did this for my kids,” she added in a confessional. “I want to shield them from this as much as I can, and if I have the power to, or Kanye has the power to, that is just the most important thing to me, and I’m just so emotional because of it.” Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, also thanked West for the “unbelievable way he does things.”
West and Kardashian were still on good terms at the time of the latter’s “SNL” taping. However, their relationship has slightly deteriorated following their online feud and West’s threats toward Kardashian’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson. E! News reported that as of March 2, Kardashian dissolved her marital status and is now legally single.
