Kim Kardashian slams Kanye West as she opens up on rumors she had an affair with Drake

Kim is opening up about Kanye's effect on her.

Kim Kardashian is starting to speak out against her ex-husband Kanye West and reveal to fans just how much pressure he has been putting her under behind the scenes.

In the first episode of The Kardashians season three, which aired this week, Kim was in tears as she spoke to her mom Kris and the camera crew about the damaging rumors he has been spreading about her since their split.

Perhaps one of the most shocking rumors started by Ye - who Kim says had promised to be her 'protector' - was that she had had an affair with rapper Drake.

Kanye and Drake have had beef for years, before he and Kim decided to get a divorce.

It started with targeted disses in different tracks but quickly escalated to Kanye sharing Drake's address on Twitter.

While the two battled it out, rumors started to spread in 2018 that there might be something going on between Drake and Kim K.

Kim rapidly shut down rumors, commenting under The Shade Room's report of the alleged affair: "Never happened. End of story."

Now, Kim is finally opening up about the turmoil that Kanye has put her through over the last few years, after mostly choosing to stay silent while he blasts her and her family in songs, interviews, and tweets.

Speaking about her ex-husband in the new season of her Hulu show, Kim was filmed telling her mom in an emotional moment: "And the one that was supposed to protect me - and still does interviews saying they will be my ‘forever protector’ - is the one that is hurting me the most."

She continued: "He was the one that started a rumor that said I was hooking up with Drake, having an affair.

"Our whole marriage, he accused me of that publicly.

“So the person that’s supposed to protect me the most, publicly would accuse me of having an affair our whole marriage.

"I really can’t wrap my head around how he thinks he is a protector."

Elsewhere in the episode, Kim also says that she has struggled massively with Kanye constantly bringing up her infamous sex tape.

"Even just how he looks down on me for my tape, and brings it up all over town, all over the media. Like, thanks for reminding people once again," she said through tears.

"All of his shenanigans - I don't even know what the f*** to call it - is gonna be far more damaging to my kids one day than my tape will ever be.

"And I have to sit here, and not say anything, ever, because I know one day my kids will appreciate that."
