Appearing on Monday’s episode of Good Morning Britain, Caitlyn admitted she has not seen or spoken to the rapper for some time since he’s now based in Wyoming, but insisted he has always been a ‘kind and loving human being’.
When asked her about Kanye’s bid to become President, Caitlyn said: “Honestly, I don’t know. Since all of this has come down, I’ve kind of just watched it go down. He’s living in Wyoming.”
‘Well, honestly I don’t know. Since all of this has come down, I have just kind of watched it just like everybody else. I haven’t had a chance [to speak to him], he is living up in Wyoming most of the time,’ Caitlyn, speaking from her Malibu home, explained.
Reacting to speculation that she could be Kanye’s VP on the presidential ticket, the 70-year-old said it was a ‘joke.’
She said: ‘So, I just wish him the best. I made that as a joke about being his VP when he announced that. But I hope for the best for him. He’s a really good guy.’
‘The only thing I can talk about is really how he treated me through everything and he has been the most kind, loving human being and so good to me throughout the years and especially going through everything I’ve been going through in the last five years. He’s been such a good friend.’
She added ‘He has been extremely supportive. Kanye has got a big heart… he’s a good person.’
Caitlyn’s comments come a day after Kanye, 43, was seen on the tarmac at a local airport in Cody, Wyoming on Sunday, boarding a private jet with son Saint, four.
