Kim Kardashian revealed exactly what happened behind the scenes with Kanye West during her Saturday Night Live monologue, revealing on The Kardashians that he actually walked out midway through.

“He’s upset of the fact that I said ‘the reason I divorced him,’ used the word ‘divorced.’ So he wished I said the word ‘filed’ for divorce,” Kim told Khloé. “And he was upset that I also said he was a rapper. He said, ‘I’m so much more than a rapper. I can’t believe you said rapper.’”

Kim also noted that she previously stood by Kanye during “speeches and things that have not been the most comfortable for me,” while Khloé added, “Not even just speeches. Strong public stances he’s taken in many different areas that might not be your stance, but you were his wife, and that’s what you do. But how is that fair for you?”

Kim added that Kanye is “so used to getting exactly what he wants” but that “it’s not gonna happen here.” She also noted in an on-camera confessional that her monologue was “all fun and games, and apparently, it wasn’t to him.”

Reminder that in her SNL monologue, Kim said, “I’ve been very blessed in this life, and I’m grateful for everything, honestly, all the ups, all the downs. I mean, I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that, he’s the richest Black man in America, a talented, legit genius who gave me four incredible kids. So when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality. I know it sounds mean, but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth. And if there’s one thing that I always strive to be, it’s genuine.”
