Kanye West has admitted he's been addicted to pornography since he was just five years old.

The rapper, 42, is known for outrageously speaking his mind in interviews, but his latest confession may leave people shocked.

He says he became so besotted with pornography that it's affected every choice he's made in his life since.

The dad-of-four revealed he'd become excessively interested in porn from the age of five as he shared the story of how he kicked the habit.

He told Apple Beats 1 radio host Zane Lowe: "Playboy was my gateway into full-on pornography addiction.

"My dad had a Playboy left out at age five, and it’s affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life from age five to now, having to kick the habit."

Despite his penchant for pornography, Kanye recently told wife Kim Kardashian that it affects his soul when her pictures are too sexy.

It was seen in a clip of her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians as she prepared for the Met Gala.

The couple ended up arguing over Kim's look, and she was left riddled with "anxiety", especially as her look was going to see her land her first solo US Vogue cover.

Kanye frowned when he saw Kim's dress and told her it didn't match with his personal evolution.

He told her: "I just made this transition from being a rapper, looking at all these girls, looking at my wife. Like, 'Oh, my girl needs to be like the other girls, showing her body off'.

"I didn't realise that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that's married and loved, and the father of now, what - about to be four kids?'

The argument took place before the couple welcomed their fourth child, Psalm, via surrogate.

Kanye said: "A corset is like a form of underwear. It's hot. It's like, it's hot for who, though?"

But Kim wasn't happy with his 11th hour criticisms.

She said: "So the night before the Met, you're gonna come in here and say that you're not into a corset bust? I'm getting really bad anxiety. What are you talking about?”

"I don't need any more negative energy for you to now say that you're not into me in a tight dress."

Kanye fired back: "You are my wife, and it affects me when pictures are too sexy."

In the recent interview, Kanye also said he's the "greatest artist of all time" and that he will be President of the United States one day.

He says he'll launch his bid for the White House as early as 2024.

He said: "There will be a time when I will be the President of the US and I will remember… any founder that didn’t have the capacity to understand culturally what we were doing."
