Kim Kardashian‘s 2019 Met Gala dress may have broken the internet with its impossibly waist-cinching corset and “dripping wet” look — but the star’s husband, Kanye West, wasn’t exactly a fan.
On Sunday night’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the 38-year-old shapewear mogul and 42-year-old rapper argued about the custom Thierry Mugler creation, with West opining that it was “too sexy” for the red carpet.
“I just went through this transition from being a rapper, looking at all these girls and looking at my wife, like, ‘Oh, my girl needs to be just like the other girls showing her body off,’” West said while confronting his wife. “I didn’t realize that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that’s married and the father of now … about to be four kids.”
Continued the musician: “A corset is a form of underwear. It’s hot. For who, though?”
Kardashian quickly put West in his place. “So the night before the Met you’re going to come in here and say that you’re not into a corset vibe?” she asked. “You’re giving me really bad anxiety … You knew last night I was having really bad anxiety and I don’t need any more negative energy, for you to say you’re now not into me wearing a tight dress.”
“You are my wife, and it affects me when pictures are too sexy,” the rapper shot back.
“You built me up to be this sexy person and confidence and all this stuff, and just because you’re on a journey and transformation doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you,” the KKW Beauty founder pointed out, causing an irritated West to leave the room.
Despite her husband’s “absolutely ridiculous” objections, as Kardashian put it, it seems the dispute eventually blew over, with the superstar couple posing together on the Met Gala red carpet — and Kardashian’s look going on to become the most talked-about outfit of the evening.
