Amber Rose on Confronting Kanye West Over Referencing Her Son: ‘You Better Not Come for Sebastian – I Will Protect Him’

05/04/2016 at 09:00 AM ET

Amber Rose will tell you, it’s only natural for a MUVA to protect her young.

So it was in January when Rose’s toddler son Sebastian was brought up during a Twitter war between her exes Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa.

“You let a stripper trap you,” West tweeted at Rose’s ex-husband Khalifa, referencing her one-time occupation. He continued, “I know you mad ever time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years.”

It’s that last bit that caused Rose to jump into the fray in memorable fashion, declaring Sebastian off limits, while seemingly revealing West’s secret sexual proclivities.

During an at-home interview with PEOPLE in this week’s issue, Rose says that people now know, “You better not come for Sebastian. Not my baby. I will protect him.”

Though she and West are still not on good terms, the soon-to-be VH1 talk show host is focusing on her many projects, including her MUVA clothing line and the recent launch of her MUVA Mojis, and letting go of the past.

“It’s all a learning experience,” she says when asked about her tumultuous social media history. “I don’t put my personal business or my feelings out there. I did before, but I don’t now because I learned from that.”

These days she’s all about supporting other women — her second SlutWalk is planned for later this year — and staying positive.

“I just feel like taking the high road,” she says. “Putting positivity out there makes you feel better. Instead of being heartless and just trying to argue with people.”

Go, Amber. Kanye is just a bully and needs called out.

Amy on

we’re always so worried about teenagers not being mature enough for social media, turns out it should be people like Kanye that shouldn’t have social media.

Go Amber. Kanye is a bully and needs called out.

Kanye is just a jerk–and he’s getting worse. Which is sad because you’re supposed to mature with age. He makes some good music but I won’t support it. Go Amber.

Breaking news: a mother protects her children!? Didnt pimp kris buy her out

Moz on

She is a protective mother!

I Fart Glitter on

Kanye is a loser.

PCC on

I think what Kanye said was spot on and not an attack on the child. Plenty of exes love their kids but hate who they had the kid with.

Angie on

This untalented loser West shouldn’t even open his ugly mouth about Amber,because he married the biggest,dumbest and ugliest slut,so shut up and look at your own shitty life.

I guess I can understand where Mr. West is coming from. After all, he’s married a woman who’s classy, talented, accomplished, educated, well spoken and gracious. Protective of her privacy. His wife would NEVER lower herself to stripping naked in front of millions or making/leaking a sex tape. OH WAIT.

Kanye needs to only mind his own wife Kim, not other women’s business!

Oliz on

His tweet is ridiculous and non sense.

Hea on

I guess Kanye forgot that his wife did porn.

Vanna on

Oh at least she is a protective mother.

Amber is a MUVA Bear!! I am the same way about my son…the claws come out!

Guest on

Kanye is such a bully. Go away!

Nikki on

LOL!!! I see all the hoodrats are on here today. Ya’ll act like Amber didn’t bring a lot of mess on herself by constantly going after his wife. Amber is the queen of crying victim, she is trash and any of you who ride for her are trashy as well. She needs to have several seats.
