KANYE West apologised to his wife Kim Kardashian on Saturday after claiming they almost aborted their daughter North during a US presidential campaign rally last week.
The 43-year-old rapper made the original statement at his first campaign event in North Charleston, South Carolina, while wearing a bullet proof vest.
Now, he’s sorry for sharing such personal matters with the world, tweeting: “I would like to apologise to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter.
“I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you.
“Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
The father of four has reportedly been holed up at the main house of the Wyoming ranch he shares with his wife over the last week.
His apology comes after he told the crowd at his rally earlier in the month that Kim almost aborted their first child, North, who turned seven years old in June.
Kanye broke down in tears at the event for his presidential bid, saying: “My girlfriend called me screaming, crying. I’m a rapper. And she said, ‘I’m pregnant.’”
He said he originally “did not want to” have the child, and Kim was ready to abort and “had the pills in her hand.”
He claimed a message from God had him calling his then-girlfriend, now-wife, back up and telling her, “We’re going to have this child.”
The 43-year-old added: “I almost killed my daughter.”
After also revealing this his father wanted abort him, but his mom “saved his life,” Kanye said that he would be “at peace… even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech [because]she brought North into this world, when I did not want to.”
