West, who Kardashian filed for divorce from last February, said that he “didn’t want to argue” about the issue, and took his kids to school. When they returned to Kardashian’s house, however, things got complicated.

West told Hollywood Unlocked of the recent drama, “How you gonna bring me to SNL and kiss the dude you dating right in front of me, and everybody’s like, ‘Aw, that’s cool.’ I can have my principles and things I’ve changed things, and I backslide, and I haven’t been the best Christian and things the media can make seem some kind of ways… But at the end of the day, I’m Jesus gang. I’m about family, just me and my kids, parenting. And I mean, my kids’ mom we not together. I’m still gonna be the best dad.”
