Kanye West corrected Pastor Joel Osteen after the televangelist introduced West’s wife, née Kim Kardashian, at a Texas church event on November 17 without mentioning that she had taken his last name.
The rapper and fashion designer appeared at a Sunday service at Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, to preach and pray alongside Osteen. After he finished a prayer with the packed megachurch, Osteen drew the crowd’s attention to Kim Kardashian, the reality television star, and North West, her eldest child with West, who were in the front row.
Osteen was met with rapturous applause when he said: “Hey guys, can we make Kim Kardashian and North feel welcome right here?” West stood smiling down at his wife before pivoting and quickly whispering in Osteen’s ear: “It’s Kim Kardashian West.”
“Kim Kardashian West, sorry,” Osteen replied.
Earlier in the sermon, West had referred to himself as the “greatest artist that God has ever created,” and spoke about how his faith has allowed him to be “in service to God.”
“Jesus has won the victory. I told you about my arrogance and cockiness already. Now the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him,” he added. Credit: Lakewood Church via Storyful
