Kim Kardashian divorce joke on Saturday Night Live was her idea … as Kanye ‘Ye’ West complained about jab


A joke Kim Kardashian made about her split from Kanye ‘Ye’ West while hosting Saturday Night Live last month was not prompted by the show’s request.

Insiders with the NBC comedy show told TMZ that Kardashian, 41, brought the joke to the October 9 broadcast in a pre-written monologue.

Ye, 44, last week appeared on the podcast Drinks Champs and complained that SNL was behind the joke, as part of a larger media spin about the split of the celeb couple after Kardashian filed for divorce this past February.

He said on the podcast, ‘SNL making my wife say “I divorced him” because they just wanted to get that bar off. And I ain’t never even seen the papers, we’re not even divorced.’

In the appearance, Kardashian referenced the split, saying, ‘I’ve been very blessed in this life, and I’m grateful for everything, honestly, all the ups, all the downs. I mean, I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that, he’s the richest Black man in America, a talented, legit genius, who gave me four incredible kids.’

She continued: ‘So when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality. I know it sounds mean, but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth. And if there’s one thing that I always strive to be, it’s genuine.’

SNL sources told TMZ that the monologue Kardashian arrived with was barely edited, and that she received a few tips from the show’s writers.

An insider told People last month that Ye had been ‘giving her advice’ about the high-profile showcase, as she felt ‘a lot of pressure’ and sought ‘to wow the audience.’

As far as Ye’s claim on the Drinks Champs podcast that Kardashian was ‘still my wife’ and there has been no ‘paperwork’ in terms of their divorce, separate sources told the outlet that the claim is false, and Ye has even agreed to Kardashian purchasing the home they once shared for $23 million.

In the wake of their split, Kardashian has been linked to SNL regular Pete Davidson, 27, while Ye has been linked to model Vinetria, 22.
