Kanye West has tweeted a public apology to his wife, Kim Kardashian, after discussing personal family matters at a campaign rally and on social media over the past week.

“I would like to apologize 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,” West wrote on Twitter on Saturday (July 25).

Last weekend, West broke down in tears at his first presidential campaign rally. The rapper and political hopeful, who recently announced his intentions to run for president in 2020, told a South Carolina crowd that his father had wanted his mother to abort him, and that he and Kardashian considered having an abortion when she was pregnant with their first child, North.

“My mom saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me. My mom saved my life. There would’ve been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy,” he revealed at the event, crying as he went on to say, “I almost killed my daughter.”

“In the Bible it says, ‘Thou shall not kill.’ I remember my girlfriend [now wife, Kim Kardashian] called me screaming and crying … she said, ‘I’m pregnant’ … She said she was a pregnant and for one month, and two months, and three months we talked about her not having this child. She had the pills in her hand,” West said.

He described being “in the [Paris] apartment where my wife was actually robbed” when “the screen went black and white and God said, ‘If you f— with my vision, I’m gonna f— with yours. And I called my wife, and she said, ‘We’re gonna have this baby.’ I said, ‘We’re gonna have this child.'”

“Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech,” West told those in attendance, “she brought North into the world.”
