Kim Karsdashian West says she wore a face shield and gloves to change husband Kanye West’s bed sheets when he had coronavirus.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star revealed she was alone at home with the rapper and her four children – North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two and 16-month-old Psalm – as she nursed him through COVID-19 earlier this year.

Kardashian West, 39, told Grazia magazine: “Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on. It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no-one else in the house to help.

“I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn’t feeling good. It was a challenge because it was so unknown.

“Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.”

The reality star said her 43-year-old hip-hop star and fashion designer husband tested positive for COVID-19 around the same time that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson revealed that they had it in mid-March.

West told Forbes magazine in July that he had had coronavirus in February. He later tested negative for the virus in March.

Speaking about the effect of the global pandemic and the changes it imposed on people’s everyday lives she said: “I’m the type of person that respects the process that respects what’s going on in the world.”

Kardashian West added: “Maybe our planet needed a break.”

The Kardashian family recently realised that their reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians will end next year.

SEPTEMBER 8th 2020: "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" will be coming to an end with the final season airing in early 2021. The popular reality television show aired for 20 seasons over 14 years on E!

But a new series is about to begin, with early episodes compiled from footage they all shot on the smartphones from home during lockdown.

Kardashian West said: “If anything, it’ll be really interesting to see what all of us were doing during the pandemic. We were so scared and cautious and we shared every moment of that. Having to be with four kids and not have their friends or their routines and no help. It was a very different side of us that I don’t think anyone’s really seen.”
