Kanye West Says He Lost Friends Because of Kim Kardashian
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Kanye West always brags about his wife Kim Kardashian and their daughter North in the majority of his interviews, and he claims both have changed his life for the better.
However, Kanye says in a new interview with Style.com that he lost friends as soon as he paired with Kim. And their relationship originally soured his standing in the fashion industry.
“[As] soon as we started dating, fashion people were really opposed to the idea of reality stars. And all the relationships, the somewhat friends that I had somewhat built up, completely turned their backs on her and me.
“The so-called traction that I was getting in the high-fashion world was completely thrown out the window and I was finally allowed to go to school, where every day I was in my mom [Kris Jenner]’s house, in my little brother’s old room, [Rob Kardashian]’s old room, re-tailoring a Céline skirt, re-tailoring a Saint Laurent jacket, re-tailoring a Zara top, re-tailoring Wolford… And day by day by day, [Kim and I] learned, we got better. We looked at the photographs together and she improved my style, we improved each other.”
