Kanye West Is 'Amazing Boyfriend' To Kim Kardashian & 'Great Dad,' Says Kris Jenner

Kris Jenner says she sees a very different side of the often frowning, Twitter-feuding Kanye West at home, where the rapper is her “roommate.”

When asked about Kanye’s real life demeanor (in the wake of his explosive Twitter tirade aimed at Jimmy Kimmel) during a Friday appearance on “Hello Ross,” the reality matriarch said the “Black Skinhead” rapper has a sensitive side.

“When someone lives down the hall, I see somebody who’s – I love him so much,” she told Ross Matthews of the new dad. “He’s such an amazing boyfriend to Kim [Kardashian] and a great dad and a wonderful person.”

Kris said she was happy Kanye agreed to appear on her talk show earlier this summer, as she wanted people to get to see the real Kanye.

“That’s why I thought it was so cool to have him on my show, and I got to sit down with him for an entire hour, and I think people saw this other side to him,” she said.

“He’s creative and he’s an amazing, amazing human being, he really is. And he doesn’t always do interviews and get the chance to really express himself like that, so I was really glad that I got a chance to sit down and talk with him,” she continued. “It made me so happy that, you know, you guys got to see the Kanye that I know at home.”
