Kim Kardashian became emotional as she discussed how she co-parents her four kids with her ex-husband Kanye West during a recent interview.

The 42-year-old reality TV star settled her divorce from the 45-year-old controversial rapper in November - deciding on joint custody of their four kids - North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.

Now, appearing on the IRL podcast with Angie Martinez, the business mogul broke down in tears as she opened up about how co-parenting with West has been "really f***ing hard".

The SKIMS founder disclosed how she protects her children from their father's recent controversies and said she does everything she can to keep them off social media.

Watch Kardashian's interview below:

Kardashian spoke about how she has guarded her four children against the drama - both publicly and privately - between the two stars.

"I definitely protected him and I still will in the eyes of my kids for my kids. In my home, my kids don't know anything that goes on in the outside world," she said.

"So in my home, my kids don't anything that goes on in the outside world and I've managed to - I'm holding on by a thread and I know I'm so close to that not happening, but while it's still that way, I will protect that to the end of the earth as long as I can," she explained.

The businesswoman then revealed that she keeps her children away from West's social media antics by calling her "best friends" - the teachers at their school - to keep her in the loop of what's happening when she's not there.

"None of the [other] kids have ever said anything to my kids, When stuff's going down I protect stuff as far as the TVs and the content that's on. It is [a full-time job]," she said.

The mom-of-four insisted that she wants her children to see the 'Donda' musician in the best light because she had "the best memories" with her own father - Robert Kardashian - before he passed away.

"I had the best dad. I don't want to get emotional. It has just been a day for me. It's hard. S*** like co-parenting it's really f***ing hard you know," she said.

"Yeah, but I had the best dad and I had the best memories and the greatest experience and that's all I want for my kids. As long as they can have that, that's what I would want for them, you know," she continued.

"So like, if they don't know things that are being said or what's happening in the world... why would I ever bring that energy to them? You know, that's like really heavy, heavy grown-up s*** that they are not ready to, like, deal with."

"And when they are we will have those conversations and I'll be so prepared but until then I will do anything to keep their life as normal as possible," Kardashian added.

Throughout the last few months, the hitmaker made headlines after unveiling White Lives Matter shirts during a Paris Fashion Week showcase for his Yeezy line.

He then faced restrictions on Twitter and Instagram after making remarks many deemed antisemitic, such as saying he will "death con 3" on the Jewish community.

Due to his repeated statements, many big-named brands like Adidas - who has collaborated with the Yeezy shoes - severed ties with West, while one-time other associates distanced themselves from him.

The KKW founder disclosed to the host that she will be ready when her children ask about West's public outbursts but for now, she is remaining silent.

"One day my kids will thank me for sitting here and not bashing their dad when I could," she said. "All the crazy s***. They'll thank me and I'll privately answer anything that they want to know. It's not my place anymore to jump in."
