Kanye West to Kris Jenner: Kim Kardashian and North West give me something to live forAdd to Favorites | Kris
"After I lost my mother, there was times I felt like -- you know, I would put my life at risk," Kanye says. "I felt like sometimes I didn't have something to live for. And now I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for."
Kanye also tells Kris being with Kim makes dealing with the paparazzi worth it. "I could have people saying, 'This is going to damage your credibility as an artist or designer," he says of his tabloid-friendly relationship. "And I say, 'I don't care. I love this woman.' Or someone could say ... 'Everyone knows you don't like paparazzi, but why would you be with this person? And I'm saying, 'I'm being with this person because I love this person, and she's worth it to me.'"
Considering Yeezy has attacked the paps on multiple occasions since being with Kim, wouldn't you hate to see how he would behave without the influence of his special "joy?"
"I just dreamed about being next to her," Kanye says of his baby mama. He then appears to get flustered and says, "I don't want to start jumping up and down on the couch or anything ... " Of course Kris, seeing a ratings bonanza slip from her fingers, begs Kanye, "Oh, please! That would be so fabulous."
The hour-long finale of "Kris" featuring Kanye's full interview airs Friday, Aug. 23 on FOX in select markets.
