“If other people think it’s strange, it’s OK, because Kim doesn’t,” the insider detailed. “She thinks it’s cool, great for his art and their relationship and loves to show her kids how much she supports him.”
Kardashian’s public support for West comes six months after she officially filed for divorce in February.
“Kim has been in individual counseling and is at peace with where her life is headed,” a source told Us in January, adding that the pair “haven’t been on the same page for a while now.”
After Donda was released on Sunday, August 29, listeners were quick to connect the dots about how West’s lyrics alluded to the end of his marriage.
During “Off the Grid,” the songwriter made a reference to his 2018 move to Wyoming, singing, “Had to move away from people / That’s miserable.”
“I just think he deserves someone who will support his every move and go follow him all over the place and move to Wyoming. I can’t do that,” she revealed during a June episode. “He should have a wife that supports his every move and travels with him and does everything, and I can’t. I feel like a f–king failure.”
West also touched on a more hopeful aspect of his marriage on “Lord I Need You,” where he mentioned how someone “came here to show that you still in love with me.”
West directly named the KUWTK alum, singing, "Heated by the rumors, read into it too much / Fiendin' for some true love, ask Kim, 'What do you love?'"
He continued by bringing up their home in California together with the lyrics, "Architectural Digest, but I needed home improvement / Sixty-million-dollar home, never went home to it."
West then appeared to hint at being unfaithful to Kardashian after she gave birth to their eldest son, Saint. “Here I go actin’ too rich / Here I go with a new chick / And I know what the truth is / Still playin’ after two kids / It’s a lot to digest when your life always movin’,” the lyrics read.
"I pray that my family they never resent me / And she fell in love with me as soon she met me," the lyrics read, before hinting that no one could ever measure up to Kardashian, adding, "’Cause you know you'd never live up to my ex though."

"Lord I Need You"
West seemed to look back at the beginning of his romance with the TV personality, singing, "When you said give me a ring, you really meant a ring, huh? / Turned out to be more than just a fling, huh? / Three hours to get back from Palm Springs, huh? /Who you know spend an hour in Walgreens, huh? / You know you'll always be my favorite prom queen."
He later compared his upbringing to his estranged wife's with the lyrics, "You had a Benz at sixteen, I could barely afford an Audi."

Track No. 2 pointed towards the end of his relationship with Kardashian, hinting, "Better that I change my number so you can't explain."
He ended the track by bringing up his new normal post-split, adding, "Guess who's getting 'exed? You made a choice that's your bad / Single life ain't so bad."
