She got wind of this interview once it released and went to vent via twitter like most of our beloved celebrities.

“People think me and Kanye are enemies, and we are not enemies. He wants the best for me, still,” she said in the magazine. “Let me say this: I still love Kanye. I will always love him as a person. I will always love him for what he’s done for me. I still always have that soft spot in my heart for him. I am not in love with him. I do not look at him in a sexual way anymore. I’m in love with someone else. I still love him as a person and want him to find happiness like I did. Everyone deserves that.”
