Does Kris Jenner Like Kanye West?

The Kardashian-Jenner household has experienced a lot of drama lately. Cheating scandals, breakups, and babies seem to take up a lot of their time. One thing that’s for sure is the Kardashian women aren’t single for long. If there is a breakup, there’s always someone else willing to pick up wherever the ex-boyfriend left off.

Considering all the difficulties Kris Jenner’s daughters have faced when it comes to love and relationships, it wouldn’t be surprising if she was a bit protective. One thing we wonder is whether Kris is fond of Kim Kardashian’s husband Kanye West. Does Kris Jenner like Kanye West? Here’s what we know.

During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Kris said she thinks Kanye is “amazing.” She praised the job he’s doing as a parent, son-in-law, and brother-in-law. “Kanye is an amazing son-in-law, he’s an amazing dad, and husband, and friend, and brother-in-law,” she said.

Kanye had a tough time last year. Many celebrities were upset with his political views and some distanced themselves from the rapper after his White House visit with Donald Trump. During that visit, Kanye gave a disjointed speech and spoke briefly about his mental health and how wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap made him feel like Superman. DeGeneres asked Kris how she felt about that meeting.

Kris chose her words very carefully in an attempt to remain supportive of Kanye. She said some of his comments were just part of who he is and that he was being spontaneous. Kris mentioned Kanye brought up the topic of hydrogen-powered airplanes, but that it was a typical comment he would make.

My job as a mom is to just be there for my kids and be supportive and love them… What I really want to do is be there to help him and be the best version of himself that he can be, and he knows we’re there if he needs us. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s so Kanye… I would rather he share some of that stuff privately. That would be great, but I have to be able to show him that I’m here if he needs me,” she told Ellen.

Kris Jenner says she loves Kanye West

You know you’re loved by your in-law if she says she loves you even after a cringe-worthy moment. West released a surprise single titled “XTCY,” where he says he would like to be intimate with his four sisters-in-law. After a comment like this, you would expect Kris to lash out and be angry. However, she had the most surprising response. When a TMZ reporter asked for her thoughts on the song, she replied, “I love Kanye.” For all we know, that could have been her way to get the reporter to leave her alone, but it was a nice thing to say.

Overall, it seems like Kris Jenner likes Kanye West. She makes an effort to publicly defend him and appears to genuinely enjoy having him as part of the family.
