Kanye West last night claimed he has been ‘trying to get divorced’ from Kim Kardashian since she met his fellow rapper Meek Mill at a hotel.
In his latest rambling Twitter outburst, West said Kim was ‘out of line’ to meet Meek Mill to talk about ‘prison reform’, and blasted her mother Kris Jenner as ‘Kris Jong-Un’ while accusing the pair of ‘white supremacy’.
West also repeated his claim that his wife and mother-in-law had ‘tried to fly in with two doctors’ to have him hospitalized amid concerns about his well-being after his bizarre entry into the 2020 presidential race.
‘Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval… that’s not what a wife should do,’ Kanye said after reports that the Kardashians were infuriated by his latest antics. Source told TMZ Wednesday that the Kardashians ‘don’t know what to do’ as Kanye is ‘clearly not receptive to getting help’.
Kanye deleted his late-night tweets barely half an hour after posting them, except for a final post in which he signed them off as coming from ‘the future president’.
The shock divorce claim comes after sources alleged that Kim, 39, and Kanye, 43, are already ‘living apart’ and have been ‘at each other’s throats’ with ‘daily bust-ups’ during the lockdown.
Kim earned glowing praise from Meek Mill last year when the rapper called her a ‘friend’ and hailed her for ‘doing a lot of good work’ on prison reform, but the nature of the alleged hotel meeting is not clear.
Meek and Kim both attended a Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles in November 2018, but it was at the Jeremy Hotel rather than the Waldorf in Beverly Hills which Kanye appeared to be referring to.
West’s tweets said that ‘Meek is my man and was respectful… that’s my dog’, without elaborating further before he veered off into his supposed $5billion wealth and a reference to Michael Jackson.
Meanwhile Kim Kardashian West has taken to Instagram to respond to the latest drama surrounding her relationship with husband and presidential candidate Kanye West.
On Wednesday, the rapper again unleashed on his family in a series of nonsensical tweets, a mere 24 hours after causing concern among fans for his mental health with a similar outburst.
Among a slew of claims, he seemingly revealed he has tried to file for divorce from Kim Kardashian West while reiterating that she and matriarch Kris Jenner have attempted to have him hospitalised.
Overnight, Kim defended Kanye and made mention of his mental health, noting bipolar disorder.
“Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand,” she wrote.
“I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health.”
But Kardashian West noted she felt compelled to speak “today” because “of the stigma and misconceptions of mental health.”
“Those that understand mental illness or compulsive behaviour know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgemental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard the family try.”
In Kanye’s earlier tweets, he mentioned rappers Meek Mill and Drake, who have been at the centre of unsubstantiated Kim Kardashian cheating rumours over the years, and made wild claims about Michael Jackson’s death, as well as branding his mother-in-law a “white supremacist”.
The tweets have since been removed from his page.
Yesterday, Kanye tweeted, then deleted, a number of claims that his family “tried to lock him up” following a rambling presidential campaign rally in South Carolina in which he cried while saying that he and Kim had once contemplated aborting their 7-year-old daughter North West.
West, who announced earlier this month that he was running for president, deleted almost all of the tweets — leaving up the one promoting his upcoming album, DONDA, tweeting “Ima focus on the music now”.
Among the many posts, the rapper and father-of-four, 43, claimed Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian-West “put out a statement without my approval”, writing “white supremacy” and claiming in a further tweet that he has been “trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek (Mill) at the (Waldorf) for ‘prison reform’”.
He also included a screenshot of his recent texts to Kris Jenner which read: “This Ye. You wanna talk. Or go to war?” along with unanswered messages.
The image was posted with the caption: “white supremacy at its highest”.
