Kanye West may have already moved on with model Irina Shayk, but his estranged wife Kim Kardashian is not dating amid the highly-publicised divorce — at least, that’s what her best friend Jonathan Cheban says.
In an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday, Cheban, 47, said he didn’t know yet if Kardashian, 40, should start dating soon. Watch above.
“Kim has a lot on her plate with four kids, and the new show is starting soon to film for Hulu,” Cheban said in response to the question posed by Williams, 56.
Cheban said it wasn’t surprising for him that Kardashian was so open about the divorce on the final season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which showed Kardashian breaking down over her “lonely” marriage.
“Everything is open on the show, they question everything,” he said, noting that the show often documents many of the family’s milestones — good and bad.
Although Kardashian and West have split, Cheban says he still respects the 44-year-old rapper.
“I love them both, Kim is studying for the bar again right now I just spoke to her yesterday,” Cheban said. Kardashian has been open about failing “the baby bar” twice now, so this appears to be her second attempt.
“I really like them both though, they are amazing.”
“I miss Kanye, I miss him around, I miss his brilliant energy,” Cheban finished, to which Williams remarked, “Is this what we call it today?”, seemingly in reference to West’s controversies.
Cheban laughed off Williams’ jab, saying that West is “always ahead of the times” and is “inspiring.”
Kardashian and West share four kids together: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
