Chatting with bestie Jonathan Cheban, Kim, 38, tried to justify West's slavery comments on the season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
"He's doing good," she said. "Everyone thinks he's having a breakdown."
The KKW Beauty mogul told her friends that she was "hysterically crying," after watching what Kanye, 41, said about slavery, but seeing him in person was a completely different situation.
"I go home, he's totally fine. When he gets ramped up he can't control what he says. He can't let it go," explained Kim. "He loves being ramped up. He's like, 'I feel powerful when I'm ramped up. I say crazy sh*t but I've always said crazy sh*t . That's why I'm Kanye.'"
The star told Jonathan, 44, and Simon Huck that despite her own opinions, she would always stand by her man: "I always know what Kanye's intentions are."
Kris Jenner, who is also a strong defender of the rapper, refused to cancel an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show after his controversial remarks. "My loyalty lies with Kanye ," she said. "I just can't control everybody."
"I want to support Kanye and be somebody in his life that offers love and support and not criticism," Kris, 63, told Ellen, 60. "Kanye always does things with really good intentions. I'm going to let him explain himself."
Apart from the Kanye drama, Kim's big push to have Alice Johnson freed from prison was also a storyline on the show.
"Six months ago I stumbled across a story of Alice Marie Johnson," she started. "I first started with retweeting the story and I just kept on watching it over and just feeling how unfair this is and hoping that I could reach out and make a difference."
"This is so crazy. We did it!" Kardashian said on the phone with her attorney and Alice when she found out her meeting with President Donald Trump resulted in the woman's release. "I am at a shoot, so I cannot cry, but this is so crazy! I cannot believe we pulled this off."
"Hey Kim, how you doing? My angel!" Alice said during a phone call with Kim. "I cannot believe it, we did it! We did it!" the star told her.
The KUWTK season finale wrapped up with messages from everyone in the family and a recap of the stars' biggest milestones of the year — including the births of Chicago West, Stormi Webster and True Thompson.
"Every time I think I've lived a crazy year I live the next year," Kim said. "I think the last year has been a big growth period for me. Figuring out what I want in life and making it happen. I used to live my life being passionate about me. My priorities have shifted. The more that I can do to help other people the better I am."
