Kanye West surprised his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, by going to great lengths to ensure that previously unseen footage from her sex tape was never made public.
Kim was shown sweating out in the early episodes of the Hulu series over fears that more footage from her Ray J romp would be leaked online, and it looks like West went above and above to prevent that from happening.
West made his first appearance on “The Kardashians” on Wednesday’s new episode, popping up in NYC ahead of his estranged wife’s “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig.
She revealed to her mother, Kris Jenner, sister Khloé Kardashian, and close friends in her New York hotel before going to SNL that West, who was in New York with her for SNL, took care of her sex tape scandal concerns personally. West flew from New York to Los Angeles to return the tape to her in person.
“So Kanye flew home last night and he came back this morning, and I want to show you guys what he got me,” she said, her voice breaking and tears streaming down her face as she opened some luggage in front of her. “He got me all of the sex tapes back!”
West “caught up with Ray J at the airport,” she added and got the hard drive on which the footage was saved from him.
Kim expressed her gratitude for what her estranged husband did, In a confessional, she added
“I know Kanye did this for me, but he also did this for my kids. I want to shield them from as much as I can and if I have the power to or Kanye has the power to, that is the most important thing to me and I’m just so emotional because of it. It just means a lot to me,” she said.
West confirmed that no checks or large sums of money were exchanged and that the tape would not be used again. “How good is God that this happened like right here at this time?” West told Jenner.
