Caitlyn Jenner confirmed Kanye West is living alone in Wyoming — away from his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and their four children.
Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, insisted that despite West’s recent Twitter meltdown, the rapper is “a good person” with “a big heart”.
The 70-year-old Olympian, who was married to Kanye’s mother-in-law, and is the father of two of her 5 children, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, appeared on British TV show Good Morning Britainon Monday, Aug. 3, and voiced support for the “Gold Digger” rapper, who is determined to be the 46th president of the United States.
“Well, honestly I don’t know,” Jenner responded when asked about West’s political ambitions. “Since all of this has come down, I have just kind of watched it just like everybody else. I haven’t had a chance (to speak to him), he is living up in Wyoming most of the time.
“So, I just wish him the best. I made that as a joke about being his VP when he announced that. But I hope for the best for him. He’s a really good guy.”
The male-to-female reality TV star went on to praise the 43-year-old rap producer, who suffers from bipolar disorder, for being “a good friend”, especially during the years when Jenner underwent gender transition.
“The only thing I can talk about is really how he treated me through everything and he has been the most kind, loving human being and so good to me throughout the years and especially going through everything I’ve been going through in the last five years,” Jenner said. “He’s been such a good friend.”
The former Olympic decathlon winner added “He has been extremely supportive. Kanye has got a big heart… he’s a good person.”
And when asked about the situation in the U.S., Jenner insisted: “I don’t even want to discuss or talk about politics anymore.”
“It’s a different world, I want to go back to the old world!… I think here in the U.S., a lot of it is political. We have an election coming up, it seems everything right now is politics, politics, politics.”
Jenner, who previously supported Donald Trump, stopped supporting the President in 2018 due to his administration’s lack of support for the transgender community.
The “I Am Caitlyn star” no longer politically identifies as Republican, and instead claims to be “economically conservative, socially progressive”.
