Touching on how he is learning to communicate with Kim, he said: "What I had to learn from Kim is how to take more of her advice and less of other people's advice. There's a lot of Kim K skills that were added. In order to win at life, you need some Kim K skills, period."

Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea have been snapped on the set of their new music video for collaboration, Black Widow.
The pair, who were shooting the promo in Los Angeles, were spotted wearing skin-tight one-pieces - think Uma Thurman in Kill Bill - which were unzipped to reveal a lot of cleavage.
Iggy opted for a white catsuit, while Rita looked racy in a red and black number - completing her look with a blonde wig.
