Kanye West Apologizes to Kim Kardashian on 'Good Morning America'

After many months of harassing her now-ex Pete Davidson online, Kanye West has publicly apologized for the distress he's caused Kim Kardashian since she filed for divorce last year.

In an interview with Good Morning America dubbed "A Conversation with Ye: Linsey Davis Reporting," West opened up about his ongoing beef with both Gap and Adidas, his political aspirations and regretting the way he has publicly treated his ex-wife. 

"This is the mother of my children, and I apologize for any stress that I have caused, even in my frustration, because God calls me to be stronger," he said, perhaps in an effort to squash all of his beef now that Queen Elizabeth II has died. "I need this person to be less stressed and of the best, sound mind and as calm as possible to be able to raise those children."

When asked if he feels like he has a voice in co-parenting his four children North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, he said: "I do have a voice, but I had to fight for it. That hurts you, when you have to like, scream about what your kids are wearing."

He continued, "And it's just little nuances where there was a parallel to what was happening at Gap, what was happening at Adidas and what was happening in my home. It was all of a [sic] kind of a disregard for the voice of something that I co-created. I co-created the children."

Ye also made it clear that he wants his kids to go to his new private school, The Donda Academy. As reported by Rolling Stone earlier this month, he has aspirations to open up campuses nationwide in addition to a Donda University. The tuition-based, confidentiality agreement-controlled and Christian-focused academy's curriculum — which includes parkour classes — is unsurprisingly far from traditional.
