–Kim Kardashian covers the first issue of Grazia USA and reveals that Kanye West contracted covid around the time Tom Hanks had it. “Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on.

It was a challenge because it was so unknown. Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.”
