Stopping by Revolt TV's Drink Champs sometime last month after the beauty mogul's Oct. 7 hosting gig – during which she swapped spit with the 27-year-old comedian as part of an Aladdin-themed sketch – the rapper spoke candidly about his estranged wife, who filed for divorce in February after six years of marriage and four children.
The interview aired Thursday, right after Kim had finished wrapping up her second date with Ariana Grande's one-time fiancé.
Kardashian began getting cozy with Davidson following her first-time appearance on the set of NBC's late-night comedy sketch show, for which West reportedly helped her prepare.
During her opening monologue, the 41-year-old quipped, "When I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality."
The jab, though in seeming good fun, clearly had an affect on the Yeezy designer.
"SNL making my wife say 'I divorced him' on TV 'cause they just wanted to get that bar off," he complained during his Drink Champs interview, going on to say that he "ain't ever seen the papers. We not even divorced!"
"'Cause that ain't no joke to me," he continued. "My kids want their parents to stay together. I want us to be together."
The couple once known as "Kimye" share daughter North, 8, son Saint, 5, daughter Chicago, 3, and son Psalm, 2.
Kanye went on to blame "the media" for the reason he's not with Kim, saying, "That's not what they're promoting. That's not what they want. They want it to be a new wedding, a new episode, a new TV show."
He also pointed the finger at his estranged wife's employees, naming specifically her righthand woman and friend.
"And then they have people all around in my wife's ear, you know what I'm saying? It's the publicist that's next to her – I don't f--k with her," he said candidly, seeming to refer to Tracy Romulus.
Throughout the interview, West repeatedly referred to Kardashian as his spouse in the present tense. "My wife is still my wife. It ain't no paperwork," he insisted.
Fans went nuts when photos emerged of Kim and Pete holding hands on a ride at Knott's Berry Farm over the Halloween weekend, weeks after they shared that steamy SNL kiss.
Days later, Kardashian jetted all the way to Davidson's hometown of Staten Island, where he wined and dined her with a romantic, rooftop dinner at his favorite spot: Campania. Hours prior to the intimate affair, photographers caught a giant bouquet of red roses being delivered to her Big Apple hotel.
The following night, the unexpected twosome met up for date No. 2 at Manhattan hotspot Zero Bond.
