Kim Kardashian Claps Back at Kanye West After He Calls Her Met Gala 2019 Dress 'Too Sexy'

Kim Kardashian‘s 2019 Met Gala look turned into a bit of a fight between she and Kanye West.

In the latest episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the 38-year-old KKW Beauty mogul showed the 42-year-old rapper her Thierry Mugler dress the night before the big event, and Kanye told her that he doesn’t like her showing off her body because it’s affecting “his soul” as a married man.

“The corset, underwear, all of that vibe, I just feel like I just went through this transition where, from being a rapper, like, looking at all these girls, and looking at my wife, like, oh, my girl needs to be just like the other girls, showing her body off, showing this, showing that,” Kanye explained. “And I didn’t realize that that was affecting, like, my soul and my spirit as someone that’s married and loved, and the father of, like, now what about to be four kids. A corset is like a form of underwear. It’s hot. It’s like, it’s hot for who, though?”

Kim – who had been planning her custom Met Gala look for nearly a year – told Kanye that his last-minute disapproval gave her anxiety.

“You knew last night I was having really bad anxiety, and I don’t need any more negative energy for you to now say that you’re not into me wearing a tight dress,” Kim shared to which Kanye responded, “You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy.”

Kim then went on to explain to Kanye that he was the one that built her up to be a sexy and confident person.

“You built me up to be, like, this sexy person and confident and all this stuff,” Kim said. “And just because you’re on a journey, and you’re on your transformation doesn’t mean that I’m in the same spot with you.”

Kim Kardashian Says Met Gala 2019 Was As Nerve-Wracking As Her Wedding to Kanye West

Kim Kardashian is revealing that attending the 2019 Met Gala was as “nerve-wracking” as her 2014 wedding to Kanye West.

“It’s the morning of the Met, and I just keep on saying ‘I don’t know why I have such anxiety for the Met, I feel this sense of pressure, responsibility,’” the 38-year-old makeup mogul and reality star said in a clip from the upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “This is like probably as nerve-wracking as my wedding like I don’t know why I get so nervous for the Met. Maybe even more so, just because there’s pictures from every single angle.”

Kim added, “This year I am wearing Thierry Mugler for the Met Ball. It’s like a huge responsibility for me because he, I’m sure, after not designing for 20 years wants it to be something magical and special and new, and I just want it to be perfect.”
