Antonio Brown Says Colin Kaepernick’s Foundation Hasn’t Done Any Work, Calls Him A ‘Trash’ QB And ‘Sell Out’ Who ‘Isn’t From The Hood’

Antonio Brown has some unfiltered opinions about Colin Kaepernick that’s sparking debate. Apparently, he feels like Kaepernick sold out by settling his collusion lawsuit against the NFL, calls him a “trash” quarterback that doesn’t really want to play, and then he questions what the free agent’s foundation has actually done for people “in the hood.” All he said inside…

 

Embattled NFL star Antonio Brown is highly critical about NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick and he’s sharing his unfiltered opinions with anyone who will listen. Over the last few days, the ex-Bucs baller has been speaking on Kaepernick’s name in interviews, questioning his philanthropic efforts and his talents on the football field.

During a sit-down interview on “Cigar Talk,” AB shared what he thought about Colin’s ongoing battle with the NFL after he launched a silent protest in 2016 by kneeling during the National Anthem in an effort to raise awareness to police brutality.

It seems AB – who’s currently working on DONDA Sports projects with Kanye West – feels like the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback sold out when he agreed to a settlement with the NFL in 2019 following his collusion lawsuit, which he filed October 2017. AB said folks shouldn’t feel sorry for Kaepernick because he “took the money.”

”He took a deal," the 34-year-old said. "We don’t feel sorry for you. You took the deal. F*** outta here. Man, you on f***ing Nike, man. F*** outta here."

It was previously reported by the Wall Street Journal that Colin and his former teammate Eric Reid would split the less than $10 million they received in the settlement. In the case, Kaepernick claimed the NFL’s 32 owners "colluded to deprive him of employment rights in retaliation for his leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States."

AB also questioned if Colin – who released his first children’s book in October 2021 – is doing what he claims via his foundation. He doesn’t believe the foundation is helping underprivileged people “in the hood.”

"He built a foundation. What it do, though? I’m being real. What superhero he enforce? Who he put on? Who he help?,” AB questioned.

The former NFL QB established the Colin Kaepernick Foundation, a non-profit organization with the primary focus of fighting oppression through education and social activism. The Million Dollar Pledge, a program in which Kaepernick vowed to donate $1 million to charity, has been a hallmark component of the organization. Kaepernick has donated to a large number of causes, including Mothers Against Police Brutality, School on Wheels and Youth Services, Inc.

In addition, Kaepernick has established the “Know Your Rights Camp,” an enterprise fully funded by Kaepernick to raise awareness on higher education, self-empowerment and to instruct others on how to properly interact with law enforcement. 

Since being blackballed from the league, Colin has expressed he wants to play. He uses social media to post videos of his practices, making it known if someone from the NFL calls him up, he’s showing up to practice.

AB doesn’t believe Colin REALLY wants to play football. 

”You took the money, the commercials. We don’t see you outside. We don’t see him in the hood. He don’t do nothing. Like, we cool. But, nah, we ain’t even stan Kaepernick."

He continued, "He not even from the hood. He haven’t even been in the trenches. We like Kaepernick and all, but we ain’t really on that."

Whet?!  This coming from a man who literally LEFT a football game in the middle of the game?!

Check out the clip that’s circulating below:

 

You can watch the full interview here:

That wasn’t the only interview AB came for Kaepernick in…

AB also popped mentioned Colin in a recent interview with 50 Cent’s This Is 50 network where he wanted to make it crystal clear that he should not be compared to the former NFL quarterback.

“We saw what happened to Colin Kaerpernick …” interviewer June Archer said before AB cut him off.

“Colin Kaepernick not AB. Colin Kaepernick not even from the hood. He’s not even from Liberty City. So, I don’t even want to mention his name,” he said. “AB is a valuable football player. AB had stats last year, touchdowns.” 

He doubled down on his comments about why people shouldn’t feel sympathy for Kap.

“He’s been treated good,” AB said. “He got (a) Netflix documentary. Don’t get it twisted. See that’s the wrong thing about the world. We think, ‘Oh Kaepernick treated so bad because they don’t let him play football.’ Yeah, they didn’t let him play football, they gave him commercials. They gave him money. I’m not trying to tell you what ‘they’ did, I’m telling you the reality of what happened.”

AB said Colin isn’t really “blackballed” because he was still able to sign contracts and still make money. He believes if the NFL really banned him, he wouldn’t have received any contracts to anything. He then goes on to explain the difference between Colin being “banned” and how he has been treated.

“Kaepernick, I feel like he’s a great guy. He stood for a great cause but he don’t understand. He’s not from Liberty City. He’s not even built like that. Dudes like me, they ban you. They don’t even give you contracts. They don’t even want to deal with you. I’m not really an icon right now. You don’t see them writing no books about me,” Brown said.

“You telling me, yo Colin Kaepernick, what did he do? What’s he at right now? Do you see him? I’m on the streets right now every day – people seeing me. They get excited. You know why? Because I make them feel good. They can relate. They know what’s really going on. But they know I still put on a smile and overcome it.

“Colin Kaepernick created all commotion then went in the cut in the corner. I’m in the people’s face every day.”

 

AB is comparing apples to oranges. And, like when most men feel threatened, is making up ish to belittle the person he’s threatened by. 

He would feel some kind of way if someone questioned his alleged "pro black" beliefs because he dates and procreates with white women, diminishing the "black wealth" he so often preaches about.  So he should probably not question the next man’s blackness.

EXPOSED: Ray J Says Kim & Kris ‘Leaked’ Sex Tape In Business Deal, Felt Suicidal As Kardashians LIED On His Name + Says Kanye Had No Clue Kim Already Had 2nd Tape

Ray J is tired of keeping silent, so he’s spilling scorching “sex tape” TEA. The reality star/singer reveals the “leaked” sex tape of himself and Kim Kardashian was actually a business deal all along. He confirms there is a second sex tape, however, Kim has been in procession of it the entire time, so the clip of Kanye West "delivering" the 2nd sex tape to Kim is CAP.

Deets from his explosive interview inside…

Ray J is breaking his silence after 14 years.

As we all know, Kim Kardashian’s claim to fame is the infamous sex tape she made with Ray J that was “leaked” in 2007. For years, the Kardashian Klan made it seem like Ray J was the one who leaked the intimate video, which ultimately caused a lot of pain and suffering for the R&B crooner, yet he stayed mum about it all.

However, after witnessing a clip from the Kardashians new Hulu series, the "I Hit It First" singer decided it was TIME. And he’s spilling scorching hot tea.

Ray J has accused Kim K of spreading lies, claiming he was in possession of a second sex tape and that he has been threatening to leak it if she didn’t cough up the cash. On the show, Kanye West – Kim K’s ex-husband – was made out to be a “hero” as he was shown giving his ex-wife a bag that supposedly included the second sex tape that she and Ray J made.

Peep the clip below:

The “One Wish” singer said that’s cap because he NEVER owned footage of any of the sex tapes. Now, he’s telling HIS side of what went down.

Wow Thank you God!
TRUTH- https://t.co/QF3XAwYZ8o

— Ray J (@RayJ) May 4, 2022

 

In an interview with The Daily Mail, the 41-year-old revealed Kim kept the sex tape footage in a Nike box under her bed.

”She kept them all – she had to go find that tape [Sex Tape Cabo #1] and then present it. I never had a tape in my possession in our whole relationship," he shared.

”I never had a single one at my house – she had them at her house. She’s always had all the tapes in a Nike shoe box under her bed. I’m sure she has bigger beds now and better boxes. That’s how it all came about. Once I pitched the idea to her, just playing around a little bit, that’s when she jumped on the idea, talked to her mom and it was out of my hands from there.”

Initially, it was Ray’s idea to have the sex tape released, which he suggested to Kim after seeing how Paris Hilton’s profile was boosted when a film she made was leaked. Kim allegedly got her momager, Kris Jenner, to organize its release via Vivid Entertainment – a process he said he had little to do with. Kris Jenner allegedly orchestrated a deal to have her daughter’s sex tape released. 

Eventually, a contract was signed by both Ray J and Kim, which was set to have three videos released, including two sex tapes. One of the tapes were made at the Esperanza Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, one was created in Santa Barbara, and a third tape that is listed as an intro to the Cabo footage. The tape that was released was the footage taken in Cabo.

Now, the “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” star regrets his role in it all. He claims the Kardashians tarnished his brand by accusing him of leaking the sex tape when that’s not what happened. He said he was made out to be the villain, which cost him opportunities and tarnished his brand. Things got so bad for Ray, at one point, he contemplated suicide.

”I felt suicidal because when you know something’s real and it’s true and you’re watching a whole family create an empire from a lie they’ve created, it’s heartbreaking and disrespectful to all the entertainers who have been honest and true to their craft,” he said.

”As a black man living and working in America, it’s hard to get up every day and look out at the water or look at my family and know that they think something about you when you know it’s 1,000 per cent the other way. How do you live like that?”

”I couldn’t be a part of any reputable major network television show and do Dancing with the Stars, and do America’s Got Talent or anything like that because of my image. Because of what they made me, I’m not allowed to be in those places.”

Ray J said he’s no longer staying quiet and he’s sharing his truth.

”For me, I’ve been walking on eggshells thinking I’m going to get in trouble for telling the truth and I’ve been holding onto it for the past 14 years and watching them humiliate me. They’re celebrating my destruction.”

”How do you believe that Ray J is the enemy of all enemies when we’ve been partners from the beginning of the sex tape being released up until now? We’re all still making money. But yet you go with defame me and blame me over and over and I can’t do nothing but defend my honor and speak out and tell the truth.”

As for the laptop Kanye retrieved from Ray J, he said it was a computer that had intimate photos and “mini-videos” sent to him during their four-year relationship after he heard via Kanye that Kim was worried about what kind of material the laptop might contain. He said he never threatened to release what was on the computer for money and that he was happy to hand it over to Ye.

”It wasn’t a sex tape – it was a lot of pictures, a lot of little mini videos and a lot of proof we’ve been talking over the years [since they split in 2006]. If you send me an email in 2008, the computer doesn’t change the date on it. So, in 07 it happened [Kim got in contact], Kanye could see we were talking consistently in 07, 08, 09 through her sending me texts and videos and stuff.”

Ye and Ray J did in fact meet and had a four-hour meeting at a private terminal at LAX to talk “father-to-father.” Turns out, Kanye had NO idea Kim was in on the release of their sex tape.

”Kim didn’t tell him, ‘Look I put the tape out with Ray J, it was a business deal, we both ran it together, we were business partners and we still are business partners. There’s really no problem with Ray J.’ Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and Kourtney – they don’t have a clue that this is a lie either," he revealed.

So, Kim made Ye think he was getting her second sex tape when she had it the entire time? Womp. 

”Apart from them stealing money from my family, we would probably still be together now,” he said.

If you didn’t know, Sonja Norwood (Ray J & Brandy’s mother & manager) filed a lawsuit against Kim Kardashian and her siblings Khloe, Kourtney and Robert Jr. for allegedly spending over $120,000 on her AMEX card in 2006 and 2007. They eventually settled out of court.

Ray also released messages he exchanged with Kim K in Instagram direct messages where he pointed out that Kim knew the publishing of their sex tape was a commercial agreement and that he has kept up his side of the bargain. Peep the damaging messages below:

It’s interesting because there have been rumors swirling for years that Kris Jenner pimped her daughter out for a check. And it seems Ray J has finally confirmed it. Thoughts?

Travis Scott Set To Headline Festival In South America – His First Since Deadly Astroworld Tragedy + ‘More’ Dates To Come?

 

Travis Scott is making his return to the festival stage since headlining his Astroworld Festival that turned deadly. He’ll be hitting the stage in South America and sources say that’s just the beginning of his comeback. More inside…

It appears Travis Scott is ready to make a comeback following his horrific Astroworld Festival that claimed the lives of ten people, including a minor, on November 5, 2021.

Travis Scott has been announced as the headliner of Primavera Sound’s South American music festivals in in São Paulo, Buenos Aires, and Santiago de Chile alongside several other artists, including Lorde, and Björk.

Peep the posters below:

For his first scheduled festival, the “SICKO MODE” rapper will hit the stage on Sunday, November 6th in São Paulo, Brazil – exactly one year and one day after the Astroworld tragedy. He’ll then hit the stage in Buenos Aires (capital of Argentina) on November 12th & Santiago de Chile on November 13th. The festivals are being produced in part by Live Nation, which also produced Astroworld. 

Variety revealed sources told them that Travis will be performing at “major” summer festivals coming up this summer, presumably in the U.S.

Interesting.

Before he hits the festival stage…

 

Travis Scott and Chase B will perform at club E11EVEN in Miami on May 7th pic.twitter.com/l8uIzNR1rr

— TRAVIS SCOTT FANPAGE (@dailytrvisxx) April 20, 2022

 

Travis Scott will hit the stage at E11EVEN nightclub in Miami on May 7th, which will mark his first concert where fans can buy tickets to see him perform. During Oscars weekend, he performed at Richie Akiva and Darren Dzienciol’s pre-Oscars party and he also hit the stage during a Coachella afterparty at Bootsy Bellows.

The “Antidote” rapper performance will go down during the nightclub’s Race Week, as the Formula One Grand Prix will be happening in Miami the following day. Rappers Rick Ross, Diplo, Snoop Dogg, and more are on the lineup to perform at E11EVEN.

The Houston native was set to headline Coachella in 2020 before it was canceled due to the pandemic. Then, it was announced he would headline in 2022, but they axed his performance after the Astroworld tragedy. Kanye West was announced to replace Travis and Ye revealed he planned on bringing Travis out. However, Ye ended up pulling out of the performance, which means Travis guest appearance was scrapped as well. 

Back in March, the father-of-two announced his new safety initiative called Project HEAL, which was met with tons of backlash, specifically from the grandparents of the 9-year-old boy, Ezra Blount, who lost his life at Astroworld. They believe he’s trying to taint the jury pool in the case that Ezra’s dad filed against Travis. The Houston rapper apologized and offered to pay for the funerals of the victims. Many of the victims’ families rejected his offer.

Kanye West Reportedly Pulls Out Of Headlining Coachella Performance, Travis Scott Out As Well

No surprise here. Kanye West has pulled out of his headlining Coachella performance where Travis Scott was set to make a guest appearance. Deets on his exit and more inside….

Looks like we’ll be seeing less of Kanye West after all the drama he brought to kick off 2022.

The Grammy winning rapper has pulled out of his headlining performance at the 2022 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival amid reports that he’s “going away.” Now, festival organizers are scrambling to replace the headliner ahead of the Coachella festivities, which will kick off April 15th.

Sources in Ye’s camp tell TMZ that the Chi-town rapper decided to pull the plug on his performance just two weeks before the two-weekend long event in Indio, CA. Ye had planned to have Travis Scott as a special guest. Now that he’s out, so is Travis. Previously, Ye threatened to pull out of Coachella if Billie Eilish didn’t apologize for shading Travis over the Astroworld Tragedy. As far as we know, she hasn’t issued an apology.

The SICKO MODE rapper was originally scheduled to headline Coachella in 2020, but it was canceled due to COVID. Organizers then booked him for 2022, but they pulled his performance following his deadly Astroworld Festival on November 5, 2021. A few weeks before the 2022 Grammys, producers pulled Ye’s performance due to his "concerning online behavior."

Sans his presence, the DONDA rapper won two Grammys – Best Rap Song for “Jail,” ft. Jay-Z, and Best Melodic Rap Performance for “Hurricane,” ft. Lil Baby and The Weeknd. Ye and Hov are now tied for the most wins for a Hip Hop artist ever, with a total of 24 Grammys each.

Before the Grammys rolled around, sources told Page Six that Ye allegedly told his ex-wife Kim Kardashian that he was “going away to get help” and would not be “making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements.”

The “going away” reports comes on the heels of Ye and Kim joining forces to co-parent at one of Saint’s soccer games recently.

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS: A LOOK AT YBF CELEBS AT THE 2022 GRAMMYS!

2022 GRAMMY WINS: Jon Batiste & Silk Sonic Win Top Awards, Jazmine Sullivan Wins 1st Pair, Doja Cat Almost Missed Her & SZA’s Win + Questlove, Tyler the Creator & Baby Keem WIN!

Several of your faves took home top awards at the 64th Grammy Awards last night. Go inside to find out who won what and take a peek at the pink & sparkly slayage on the red carpet inside…

The 64th Grammy Awards was broadcasted live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas last night, celebrating the biggest and brightest stars in the music industry. Luckily, the ceremony went down with no drama.

“We’re going to be keeping people’s names out of our mouths,” said Grammys host Trevor Noah during his opening monologue, addressing the Will Smith – Chris Rock Oscars slap. 

 

It was a HUGE night for singer-songwriter Jon Batiste, who became the night’s biggest Grammy star. The Louisiana native won FIVE Grammy awards after scooping up 11 nominations, more than any other act this year.

Nabbing the most prestigious award of the night, Jon was honored with the Album of the Year award for his eighth studio album, We Are.

 

What incredible blessings tonight pic.twitter.com/uDv2kx8X0N

— jon batiste (@JonBatiste) April 4, 2022

 

"I believe this to my core," Jon said during his acceptance speech for Album of the Year. "Best musician, best artist, best dancer, best actor…. The creative arts are subjective and they reach people at a point in their lives when they need it most. It’s like a song or an album is made and it almost has a radar to find the person when they need it the most."

”I just put my head down and I work on the craft every day. I love music. I’ve been playing since I was a little boy. It’s more than entertainment for me. It’s a spiritual practice."

He concluded, “Every single artist that was nominated in this category, I actually love and have had experiences, out of body experiences, with your music. I honor you. This is for real artists, real musicians. Let’s just keep going. Be you! That’s it. I love ya, even if I don’t know ya!" 

Watch his acceptance speech below:

In addition to Album of the Year, Jon won Best American Roots Performance for “Cry,” Best American Roots Song 
for “Cry,” Best Music Video for “Freedom,” and Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for animated film, Soul.

Major congrats! 

Silk Sonic, the duo comprised of Bruno Mars and Anderson .paak, opened up the Grammys with their electrifying performance of “777” before making a “clean sweep” at the awards show. The superduo won all of the awards they were nominated for, including Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song.

”We are really trying our hardest to remain humble at this point, but in the industry we call that a clean sweep," Anderson .paak said while accepting Record of the Year for “Leave The Door Open.”

"So all the other nominees, you all know we love y’all. We love y’all. Drinks is on Silk Sonic tonight. We getting drunk. I know a lot of y’all fans might be upset, so we’re gonna get out of here before the Internet get to talking."

Watch their acceptance speech below:

As for another big winning duo…

Doja Cat and SZA won the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their hit collaboration track “Kiss Me More.”

After Avril Lavigne announced the duo as winners, the camera cut to SZA – who was on crutches – hopping to the stage with no sign of Doja. Moments later, Doja popped up in the frame, rushing to the stage as SZA said, “Bro, you went to the bathroom for five minutes. Are you serious? Come on now."

"Listen. I have never taken such a fast piss in my whole life. Thank you everybody," Doja said to the crowd as she struggled to catch her breath.

"I’m glad you made back in time," SZA said before thanking her family, friends and colleagues.

"This is a big deal," the Planet Her singer said. "Thank you everybody, stay safe, take care."

The huge win comes on the heels of Doja making an announcement that she was quitting music after feuding with heated who were upset about a canceled performance.

Crazy day man. SZA twisted her ankle the night before the awards, really hours before. She almost cancelled. It was super inspiring to see her power thru and make it at the tail end of the red carpet and then go up on stage with crutches to get the trophy with doja. Salute.

”Crazy day man. SZA twisted her ankle the night before the awards, really hours before,” he tweeted. “She almost cancelled. It was super inspiring to see her power thru and make it at the tail end of the red carpet and then go up on stage with crutches to get the trophy with doja. Salute.”

The underdog reigned supreme!

Jazmine’s album, Heaux Tales, earned her the Grammy for Best R&B Album. "Pick Up Your Feelings" – a cut from Heaux Tales – earned Jazmine the Best R&B Performance Award, which ended up being a tie with Silk Sonic’s "Leave The Door Open."

In her acceptance speech, she said she wrote Heaux Tales "to deal with my own shame and unforgiveness," but, "what it ended up being was a safe space for Black women to tell their stories, for us to learn from each other, laugh with each other and not be exploited at the same time."

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS: A LOOK AT YBF CELEBS AT THE 2022 GRAMMYS!

Coodie & Chike Address Rejecting Ye’s ‘jeen-yuhs’ Final Edit Request & Their Take On His Most Recent Behavior On ‘TAMRON’

Visionary filmmakers Coodie & Chike chop it up on “Tampon Hall” about why they refused to let Kanye West do the final edit on their hit Netflix documentary “jeen-yuhs” and whether they think Ye’s recent erratic behavior is a performance or not. Find out what they said inside…

Since “jeen-yuhs: A Kanye trilogy” premiered on Netflix last month, it was been met with rave reviews from fans and critics – both off and online.

As everyone reveled in the behind-the-scenes sneak peek at Ye’s life from his not-so humble beginnings in the music industry, in real life, the Chi-town rapper was slowly tainting his legacy with Instagram rants that included threats and seemingly stalkerish-like behavior.

At one point, Ye turned his attention to co-directors Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah – who both have long-standing friendships with Ye – weeks before the documentary’s release. The Grammy winning rapper demanded they allow him the final edit of the trilogy before its release.

 

Kanye requests for the final edit and approval from @netflix pic.twitter.com/UjcdHxhmY1

— Did Donda 2 Get Finished Today? (@didjesusdrop) January 21, 2022

 

“I’m going to say this kindly for the last time,” Ye wrote on Instagram (and deleted). “I must get final edit and approval on this doc before it releases on Netflix. Open the edit room immediately so I can be in charge of my own image. Thank you in advance.”

Coodie & Chike denied Ye’s request.

“We have to be true to the story. We can’t sugarcoat nothing. Everybody is going to have their own opinion,” Coodie said at the time.

Now, the directors are explaining more in-depth why they decided to deny Ye’s request. They felt the story was bigger than Ye and it needed to be told.

“Oh yeah, it was like heartbreaking at first, but I told Kanye when I met with him in D.R. that, you know the story is not about him and it’s not about me, or Chike or J. Ivy,” Coodie said. “This story’s about, for all the dreamers and we just the blueprint of how you can, you know, have the confidence and movement and faith you know, with God walking with you, with Christ walking with you to get to where you need to go. So when he did say he wanted creative control, the only thing I could say was ‘Trust God,’ you know? Trust God period – you can’t stop what’s ordained by God and when he said that, you know, I just knew that we was going to hold our ground and we we’re going to keep moving and we’re here now so you know…”

When asked if they’re still friends with Ye, Simon responded, “Yeah, we’re definitely still…I mean, he’s always going to be a brother. I’m six years older than him so, he always going to be my little brother really and when I can reach out to him, I will, and I have been, like sending him different quotes and you know things like that people might send me, you know, but one thing about Kanye is he you know, when it comes to, when it comes to telling him not to do something, he want to do it even more.”

Peep the clip below:

Some attribute Kanye’s erratic online behavior to his bipolar diagnosis while others feel he’s just seeking attention and stirring up drama to promote his projects. Coodie doesn’t think he’s doing it for attention and seemingly feels like there’s something more as to why he’s acting the way he is. However, he said he’s not too worried about it because “God got him.”

“Yeah, but that’s what I thought throughout the whole journey – anytime that he, we call it ‘going off’ in Chicago – when he would go off and have rants I thought, you know, that was just a part of the show, but I realized that it wasn’t. The only time when I really experienced it in person was in D.R. [Dominican Republic], on my camera and it just felt – it didn’t feel right – and I put the camera down because I was like ‘I need to pay attention,’ because Kanye is not just you know, an artist, he’s like my brother so I knew I needed to listen and really, you know if I had to intervene, or whatever, because I just never experienced that. But I know God got him because God always had him. So I’m not too worried about that at all."

See the clip below:

From the outside looking in, many people have judge Ye for his actions. Chike believes the loss of his mother, DONDA West, really took a toll on the Grammy winning rapper and that he still hasn’t healed from the tragic loss. Losing the person that was closest to him and always had a back did a number on him.

“I agree with you. I think it’s definitely safe to bring up. I think it’s a fair argument to make. You know, my mother was one of those mothers that went above and beyond what is expected of a mother and Kanye’s mother did the same, so I know what that feeling’s like, to have a mother that just supported you and is really truly your anchor, you know, because she supported you, and to lose that, I could only imagine losing my mother now and what that would do to me psychologically. And I’m 43 so I can imagine losing that in my late 20s. And my early 30s [like Kanye did], how do you recover from that?”

It was important for the “jeen-yuhs” directors to share the story of how having faith in what you’re passionate about can help you overcome adversities in life.

“I mean, you know, and we can definitely relate as filmmakers, and especially as Black filmmakers, you know, you feel like you’re always fighting, climbing an uphill battle, you know what I mean? And I think, you know, Kanye, he believed and knew how good he was, and he had a message that he wanted to get across to the world that he was super passionate about,” Chike expalined. “And I think you know, and obviously with his mother being so, you know, instrumental and being a champion of him as well and believing in him, I think he just, it was hard for him to feel like – why didn’t other people believe in him in the same way? – And that’s why this film, for us, is so much about having faith because it really takes faith to overcome all the adversities in life that you’re going to have to face when you’re moving in your passion.”

Check out the clip below:

After watching the trilogy, many fans shared on social media how instrumental the “Jesus Walks” rapper was in their life. NBA baller Kevin Durant feels the same way:

Like this Tweet says, watching Ye’s come-up in the game can be inspirational, but he def has taken a left turn into uncharted territory:

 

I’m watching “Jeen-Yuhs” and this man Kanye really spoke ALL that shit. Talk about believing in yourself. Wild asf. He still be wildin now tho.

Kanye West’s Rep Confirms His Grammy’s Performance Was Pulled Due To ‘Concerning Online Behavior,’ The Game Defends Ye

Kanye West is OUT at the Grammys. Ye’s rep confirmed the rapper has been barred from performing at the Grammy Awards due to his “concerning online behavior.” After news hit that Ye was axed, his homie The Game came to his defense. Get it all inside…

Welp. Kanye West will NOT be hitting the stage at the Grammys next month.

The Chi-town rapper’s rep has confirmed that Ye has “unfortunately” been barred from performing at the 64th GRAMMY Awards scheduled to go down Sunday, April 3rd, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The reason? Well, if you’ve been following Ye on social media lately, you already know why. Along with harassing his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend Pete Davidson, Ye has been issuing threats against comedian D.L. Hughley and he hurling racial slurs ("koon") at TV host Trevor Noah.

Ye’s rep said the DONDA rapper – who has been nominated for five Grammy awards – is prohibited from performing at the show due to his “concerning online behavior.” It seems a Grammy producer called up Ye’s team Friday to inform them of the change.

Sources close to Ye told The Blast his team “isn’t surprised” by the decision, and it only further proves the Grammy Awards are an outdated and an unimportant part of music culture and perceived success. By the way, DONDA was nominated for Album of the Year.

The Blast reports:

We’re told the decision was made partially because Trevor Noah is hosting the night’s festivities and there is worry about the two men’s interaction during the show. As we reported, Kanye responded to Noah after he addressed the rapper’s split from ex-wife Kim Kardashian. “I’ll be honest with you — what I see from the situation is a woman who wants to live her life without being harassed by an ex-boyfriend or an ex-husband or an ex-anything,” Noah said. 

The rapper’s name wasn’t originally mentioned in the first list of performers, however, he may have been a planned or “surprise” performer.

”Time & time again they show us that they only want to STEAL the culture, not allow you to ever be their equals," the wose coast rapper wrote. "In a more than obvious move for reasons of minuscule actions…. The Grammys have at the last minute decided to pull @kanyewest from performing on the show as if we didn’t know it was coming,” he wrote. “Could be because @trevornoah is hosting and there was a conversation held amongst his team & the academy that led to the decision or because Ye’s account was suspended just days ago for reasons unknown especially in a world where all the negativities of the world can be found on the same app with no repercussions or suspensions…. We’ll just say it’s all of the above & a continuous disrespect for us & all that we have brought to the table in entertainment, media & sports over the last 100 years especially.”

He continued, “Speak your mind in this country for yourself, family or your people & you’re ostracized immediately & if you push them hard enough they will stop at no ends to try and put an end to you as a whole…. I for one, have never been scared to speak my mind even understanding what the consequences may be. I can’t sleep at night knowing I was quiet about issues burning holes in my heart or narratives incorrectly pushed by the mass agenda to create a mind set that the person at hand is krazy or has issues internally that are beyond repair. I say all this to say, I’M WOKE….. & while I am.. lemme remind you that Colin Kapernick still isn’t allowed in the NFL, lynching just became a federal hate crime in 2022 & you can now not be discriminated from employment because of the way you decide to wear your hair…. GEEZ thank you massa for allowing us to slowly progress as a race 100 years at a time after all that was STOLEN from us. I’m sure I’ll be the next account suspended for speaking freely on an app created for us to equally share as humans lol. Hella shit be a joke everywhere you turn these days… but let’s keep playing their game until one day somebody WAKES us ALL the f%#! up!”

A few days ago, Meta (parent company of IG & Facebook) suspended Ye’s account for 24 hours for violating the company’s policies on hate speech, harassment and bullying. If further violations happen, a spokesperson for Meta said they’ll take additional steps.

As of right now, all of Kanye’s posts have been deleted from his account.

Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden’s Interview: Nicki Shares Lil Wayne ‘Butt’ Jokes Led To Her Getting A** Shots, Gives Lil Kim Props, Talks Rap Bullies & Moguls

Nicki Minaj is back and she’s sharing everything that has been on her mind as she gears up for a post-baby comeback. In a candid interview with fellow rapper Joe Budden, the female rap star opens up about how Lil Wayne’s jokes about her butt weighed on her decision to get a** shots, she spills tea on Future, gives Lil Kim her props, she gets vulnerable while talking about rap bullies, what she believes is mogul status and more.

Get it all inside…

Nicki Minaj is back.

The NYC raptress took some time off after giving birth to her son, whom she affectionately calls Papa Bear, and she’s ready to solidify herself as a rap mogul.

Throughout her career, there has always been chatter about whether or not her “ass”ets are natural and she never really directly confirmed or denied.

In a candid interview with fellow rapper Joe Budden, the QUEEN raptress gets real about her body enhancements and ultimately what led her to receiving a** shots. Coming into the rap game, social media was brand new, so she said she was people’s “guinea pig.”

”I was one of the first people to be shitted on on social media," she explained. "It wasn’t acceptable to have surgery at all or anything. At that time, I didn’t have surgery. I had a** shots, which till this day I realized…even what I did and even with me not consulting with anyone to do something like that…how insane that was. It’s not like you’re going to a doctor, a professional person. No. It’s some random person, comes in. I was in Atlanta at the time.”

At that time, Nicki said she was hanging around Lil Wayne and the Young Money crew a lot. She said Wayne loves big booties and he would always have a new chick (“a new big booty”) in the studio, every session. She dubbed them her “muses” and said she would never downplay them because “they would give him that fuel.”

Over time, Nicki became the “little sister” with the Young Money crew and all they would talk about was “…big butts. I didn’t feel complete or good enough. Good as them girls," she said.

They jokingly said things about Nicki’s butt and she didn’t find it funny.

“It wasn’t a joke to me. I was laughing, but I didn’t find it funny,” she said.

Looking back, she said they didn’t realize her insecurities.

Joe and Nicki talked about the “female rapper starter kit” and how the new girls coming out seem to mimic the “pink wig, thick a**” aesthetic that she debuted.

“That was just a Nicki Minaj thing. Now, it’s everybody,” she said.

While talking about being a role model for kids, Nicki spilled deets from a conversation with Future in the studio. She said Future told her (while laughing) that people think he does a lot of drugs because he raps about it all the time, but they don’t know he’s really a lightweight. Interesting.

At that moment, she realized how impactful their lyrics are to their fans, regardless if they want to be a role model. On the flip side, she said you can’t fault an artist for their art.

”Even though we are role models, you’re bad because you rap about that. It’s art!,” she said.

The Pink Friday rapper said it’s insane rappers’ lyrics are being used against them in court cases before comparing rappers to actors. “It’s not like they do that to actors,” she said.

”Rap is the only culture that from the beginning of time has been vilified. From the very beginning, we have been treated like the bad guy,” Nicki said.

When Nicki thinks of being a mogul there are several things she feels she has to accomplish.

”All of my beauty deals. Makeup, hair, clothes, and sneakers. I have them happening,” she spilled.

At one point, Nicki had to put things on pause because she wanted to negotiate deals when she’s at the top of her game.

Girl you ate too let’s be honest here pic.twitter.com/ud9AvcANh7

— KEVIN (@Kevinmxo) March 9, 2022

Since Nicki hit the scene, she has always made a point NOT to group herself with other female rappers because she always felt she could rap just as good, if not better, than the male rappers. "Rap bullies" tried to make her feel like she shouldn’t have that mindset.

”I fell in love with who spit the hottest rap and who spit the hottest verse on this song. So, I gravitated to Foxy Brown because I felt like she used to spit like a dude. Her precision was just like, even to this day I think her precision and the way she pronounces everything and her clarity is just unmatched and that’s who I wanted to be like. I was never thinking about what everybody probably thought I was thinking about,” she said. “I was thinking about who had the better verse on tracks.”

”At one point people tried to bully me out of that mindset, so that the bar could be lowered for women. Why does it have to be about dope raps?”

She said no one would ever tell Michael Jordan basketball isn’t about stats and that no one would tell Mike Tyson or Muhammad Ali it shouldn’t be about their technique.

”No one would ever say that. But as soon as it comes to female rap, they want me to start lowering the bar,” she said.

 

In her latest interview with Joe Budden Nicki Minaj praises Lil’ Kim’s influence and states that she and Kim should’ve been on the cover of US Vogue Magazine based on their influences on music and fashion.pic.twitter.com/ufkwbKroyT

— Lil’ Kim Media (@LilKimMedia) March 9, 2022

 

At one point during the interview, the Beam Me Up Scotty rapper gave props to her rap nemesis, whom she was arguably extremely influenced by, Lil Kim, for being a trendsetter for female rappers. She said if she believes she should be on the cover of VOGUE, so should Lil Kim. Peep the clip above.

Also in the conversation, the new mom shared how everything slowed down after the QUEEN album, then getting pregnant, and how she struggled with writer’s block before writing, “Seeing Green.” Also, there was that legal drama that caused her to pull out of events and performances

It was a side of Nicki Minaj her fans love to see. It’s clear she’s on the comeback trail with a new documentary on the way, building her own management company, starting her own record label, acting in a huge film and more, so stay tuned.

As for fashion, she talked about how she presented an idea to Kanye West, but he turned it down because he felt his wife (at the time) Kim Kardashian wouldn’t like him behind a "female version of Yeezy." While Nicki doesn’t hold any grudges against Ye, she did say it’s important black creatives stick together to usher in more people of color to represent in the fashion industry – which is an industry black people heavily influences, but doesn’t benefit from it.

Kanye West Receives Backlash For Decapitating & Burying Claymation Of Pete Davidson In ‘Eazy’ Video + Ye & Kim Will Likely Have Informal Custody Arrangement

Like clockwork, Kanye West released his “Eazy” video after a judge ruled Kim Kardashian legally single. Now, he’s receiving backlash for the cringey visuals where a claymation version of Kim’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson, is kidnapped, decapitated and buried alive. Folks have been going off on Ye about the clip, including comedian D.L. Hughley.

Find out what they’re saying, plus deets on Ye & Kim’s informal custody arrangement inside….

Yesterday, a judge ruled Kim Kardashian legally single amid her ongoing divorce from Kanye West. And in true Ye fashion, he used the moment to capitalize on it.

Not long after reports were released about Kim K’s new single status, the 44-year-old rapper released disturbing visuals for his track “Eazy,” which features The Game. It’s a cut from Kanye’s newly released DONDA 2 album.

The Chi-town rapper released the video on his official Instagram account (with 15 million followers), which showed a claymation version of “SNL” star Pete Davidson (who is currently dating Kim K) being kidnapped, decapitated and buried alive.

At the end of the clip, a truck full of roses appeared, which is similar to the Valentine’s Day delivery Ye sent to Kim.

”EVERYONE LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER,” is written across the screen before Ye pokes fun at Pete, dubbing him Skate. “EXCEPT SKETE YOU KNOW WHO. JK HE’S FINE," appeared on the screen.

CRINGEY! And super insensitive since Pete suffers trauma from the loss of his father, who was a New York City firefighter with Brooklyn Ladder Company 118 who died during the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Folks have been calling Ye out for the video. Peep some reactions below:

Kanye West decapitating Pete Davidson in his new music video is absolutely disgusting and pathetic. The man’s 44 and having a completely one-sided feud with this guy to this extreme, it’s vile and so uncomfortable to witness unfold.

Even comedian D.L. Highly reacted to the video. He said he doesn’t think Ye’s actions are funny at all:

D.L Hughley got the best take on this Kanye West, Kim K, and Pete Davidson situation. pic.twitter.com/SRmUVlxJrt

— L.anaïs (@LanaisLi) March 3, 2022

This is just the latest attack from Ye against Pete. During Super Bowl LVI weekend, the Grammy winning rapper posted up several harassing posts aimed at Pete, which he eventually deleted. Not only that, he threatens to beat Pete’s a** on the “Eazy” track. Kim K filed papwerwork in court, revealing Ye’s harassing posts caused her "emotional distress." 

As for Ye & Kim’s lingering custody battle, it’s being reported the former couple will likely have an open-door policy when it comes to custody of their four children – North, Saint, Chicago & Pslam. TMZ reports:

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … based on Kanye’s schedule, which involves significant global travel, the typical custody arrangement spells out in detail who gets the kids and when is simply impractical. For instance, they’ve attended birthday parties and other functions together as a family, without any kind of formal structure. It’s possible they’d create a structure for XMAS, Thanksgiving and other holidays, but Kanye is a global traveler because of his various businesses, so planning ahead may be unrealistic.

Our sources say as crazy as the divorce has been, the custody issues for the most part have been handled peacefully. Whenever Kanye’s in L.A. and wants to see the kids, Kim has facilitated it. For example, the other day Kanye wanted to take one of the kids to a basketball game, and Kim gladly obliged. In other words, there’s an open-door policy when it comes to custody.

Kanye also typically gets the kids every Sunday for his Sunday Service.

With all of the online drama Ye is creating, we doubt this “open-door policy” will last long.

Kanye West Fires 4th Divorce Attorney Before Hearing That Made Kim Single Again, Does Dinner In Miami With Tristan Thompson + Ye & Chaney Profess Their Love Emoji Style

Kanye West is doing the most before with his legal team before his estranged wife Kim Kardashian goes before a judge to request single status. He has fired his fourth divorce attorney just hours before today’s hearing.

 

After shaking things up in his pending divorce, he stepped out in Miami to dine with Tristan Thompson (his wife’s sister’s ex-boyfriend) and seemingly confirmed his new fling, Chaney Jones. Everything inside…

Kanye West’s pending divorce from Kim Kardashian continues well over a year after she filed for divorce after six years of marriage.

Over the last few weeks, Ye has been ranting and raving on social media about how Kim has been keeping the kids away from him and issuing public threats to Kim’s “SNL” boyfriend Pete Davidson.

In December, Kim filed to be legally single, requesting a judge to restore her single status as they work out the divorce. That seemingly sent Ye in a rage because ever since she filed those documents, he has been going ham on social media. He has made claims that Kim is keeping their children away from him and he has publicly threatened Kim’s boyfriend on Instagram and even on new songs.

Kim K took it back to the courts, filing new court documents to let the judge know Ye’s social media antics have caused her “emotional distress” and she demanded single status so she can heal and move with her life.

Today, the KKW Beauty honcho went before the judge. Literally hours before the hearing, Ye decided to fire his fourth divorce attorney and apparently hired another.  TMZ reports

Sources with direct knowledge tell us he recently fired his lawyer, Chris Melcher. We’re told the relationship between Ye and Melcher had become extremely difficult, with little communication.

Our sources say at times, Kanye had expressed he just wanted to settle things with Kim … and at others, he expressed a desire to put up a fight.

As for Wednesday’s hearing, it’s expected the judge will rule to make Kim legally single. We’re told it’s "highly unlikely" Kanye will attend in person, but according to the court record, Kim will either call or video chat into the hearing.

You’ll recall, Kim mentioned how Ye has been running through divorce attorneys when she first spoke out following his social media rants.

Yet and still, Kim’s request was granted today.  TMZ reports she’s officially single, and so is Kanye.  But Kanye had a few odd conditions:

Kim Kardashian’s quest to become a single woman has become a reality, because the judge has granted her request to end her marriage to Kanye West.  Kim will hereinafter be known just as Kim Kardashian … the West is gone.

…Kanye’s lawyer did not object to restoring Kim’s single status, although his lawyer said he had 3 conditions — 1. any right to get reimbursement of money that’s supposed to be divided up will be preserved in case either of the dies … the judge granted that condition.

There were 2 other conditions the judge rejected — that Kim would not transfer any assets she had in trust, and if Kim remarries should would waive the "marital privilege." That privilege means a new spouse would not have to testify about communications he had with her.  The judge said nope to that.
A source close to Kanye tells TMZ, he also wanted the divorce to be granted.  He’s now a single person as well.

Ye was not in attendance for the hearing and Kim attended via video conference.

Not only is Ye shaking things up with his legal team, he’s also causing trouble when it comes to their prenup. TMZ reports:

Kanye’s lawyers filed legal docs claiming prenups in California after 2002 are presumed invalid. It’s weird because Kanye himself has NEVER suggested their prenup — which kept almost all their property separate during their marriage — is anything other than valid.

As for prenups being presumed invalid … that’s not exactly true. The law says a prenup is presumed invalid IF one of the parties who signed it challenges its validity … Kanye has not done that, so it’s unclear why the lawyers are suggesting it.

What’s more … even if Kanye challenged the prenup, he’d have to show either it was not entered voluntarily or it was "unconscionable." Kanye had a lawyer represent him when the prenup was signed, so it’s hard to imagine it wasn’t voluntary. As for it being unconscionable, Kanye made a fortune during the marriage and all that money is his … so this doesn’t make sense either. 

We’re not surprised. The DONDA rapper has been doing plenty of questionable things as of late.

In 2014, it was reported Kanye & Kim signed a prenuptial agreement that stated Kim would receive $1 million for every year she’s married to the Chi-town rapper, capped at $10 million. The prenup also said she would be able to keep all jewelry and gifts given to her by Kanye.

Now, it makes sense why Ye hired Samantha Spector, who recently represented Dr. Dre’s wife, Nicole Young, in their divorce.

 

Kanye West & Tristan Thompson Grab Dinner Together in Miami https://t.co/s247FdgTdO

— TMZ (@TMZ) March 2, 2022

On Tuesday, the Chi-town rapper linked up with NBA baller Tristan ThompsonKhloe Kardashian’s baby daddy/ex-boyfriend – for dinner at the Seat Hotel in Miami. And it appears they were joined by several women (seen above).

Third Trimester Tristan was in town with his new team – the Chicago Bulls – for their game against the Miami Heat on Monday. To be a fly on the wall during their conversation.

You’ll recall, Ye, semi-blasted Tristan about not giving him the address to Chicago’s 4th birthday party back in January. He insinuated Tristan and Khloe were closer than fans thought after it was revealed Tristan made a baby with another woman while being in a relationship with Khloe. Eventually, Ye thanked Travis Scott (Kylie Jenner’s baby daddy) for leaking the address to the party.

Last week, the Grammy winning rapper was in Miami with a Kim K 2.0 on his arm during his DONDA 2 album release party. The College Dropout was seen grabbing lunch with a woman named Chaney Jones, who is basically his ex-wife’s doppelganger. Ye has been creepily dressing her identical to Kim – just like he did his last fling, Julia Fox.

It appears Ye has confirmed their “coupledom” emoji style, sharing a paparazzi flick of himself and Chaney with a black heart emoji on his IG.

Although her short-lived relationship with Ye has ended, Julia Fox said it was the best thing to have happened to her. Oh?

"It was the best thing that could have happened to me," Julia said on the red carpet at the premiere of The Batman at Josie Robertson Plaza in NYC yesterday. She said being with Ye was "like hitting a reset button. It kind of brought a spark back into my life that I had kind of forgotten about."

Kanye West’s IG Posts Caused Kim K ‘Emotional Distress,’ She’s Demanding Single Status & Access To Her Money + Ye Trolls Pete Davidson, Now He’s Left IG

Following Kanye West’s recent social media attacks, Kim Kardashian took her issues straight to their divorce judge, revealing his chaotic posts have caused her “emotional distress” and she just wants to be single so she can heal.

 

Meanwhile, Ye is still trolling Kim K’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson, on social media. Sighs. The latest inside…

Kanye West harassed his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and threatened her current boyfriend, Pete Davidson, on social media, so Kim K is taking it to the courts.

According to TMZ, the KKW Beauty honcho filed new court documents against Ye, letting the judge know his social media antics have caused her “emotional distress” and she’s demanding she single status so she can heal and move with her life.

"I very much desire to be divorced,” she said in the documents. Kim is upset Ye shared private information (and texts) about their divorce, as well as false claims about what’s going behind-the scenes. Rightfully so. Ye posted Kim K was trying to keep their daughter, Chicago, away from him and claims she accused him of putting a hit out on her.

”Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress," she explained in the docs. 

In December, Kim filed an order to become "legally single," in which, Ye’s lawyers objected. The Chi-town rapper wants to block Kim K from transferring assets out of any trusts they created, he wants to waive their marital privilege pending a final custody decision and, if either of them were to die, he wants any money that might be owing to either gets reimbursed.

TMZ reports:

Kanye had also asked to prevent Kim from transferring assets out of any trust. Kim says that ridiculous — they have a prenup which keeps all their trusts and other assets separate, and Kim needs access to her trust to run her businesses. And, in the docs, Kanye’s lawyers recognize the prenup is valid. She also notes Kanye’s lawyers acknowledge they’re having trouble getting through to him. In October 2021 they wrote to Kim’s attorney about trying to break down the prenup for Ye, saying …"But as you also know, we face challenges in communicating with our client — and the validity of the prenup (with all of its related legal implications) is a heavy issue to broach."  The upshot — it seems Kanye isn’t throwing up the roadblocks — his lawyers are, because Ye isn’t involved.

 

At this point, Kim K is TIREDT and just wants this all to be over as quickly as possible.

"While I wish our marriage would have succeeded, I have come to the realization that there is no way to repair our marriage. Kanye does not agree but at least it appears that he has come to the realization that I want to end our marriage, even if he does not,” she wrote in the documents.

You’ll recall, Kim K filed for divorce from Ye in February 2021. They share four young children – North, Saint, Chicago & Psalm.

The Grammy winning rapper has been in Miami to promote his recently released DONDA 2 album. And he has a Kim 2.0 on his arm. The College Dropout was seen grabbing lunch with a woman named Chaney Jones, who is basically his ex-wife’s doppelganger. As you can see, Ye is creepily dressing her identical to Kim – just like he did his last fling, Julia Fox.

Photogs caught her in a thong swimsuit on the beach, looking very much like a carbon copy of Kim:

In fact, Chaney has been living it up with Ye over the last few days as she also accompanied Kanye at his DONDA 2 listening event in Miami on Tuesday:

The obsession is real…and scary at this point. Fans pointed out Chaney rocked the same sunglasses Kim K wore during Ye’s "Donda" event in Atlanta in 2021.

Last night…

Ye linked up with his homie/former Tampa Bay Buccaneers baller Antonio Brown to celebrate boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s birthday in Miami. Watch them vibe out to Donnell Jones’ “Where I Wanna Be” above.

Even though Ye has been out and about, he still found time to troll Pete Davidson – yet again: 

"Ran Skete off the gram Tell your mother I changed your name for life," Ye wrote on IG. Sighs.

The "SNL" star joined Instagram last week after not being on the site for three years, so the timing of his return was interesting. Once Ye got wind he was on IG, he followed Pete and shared that he was following him on his own IG. Pete previously confirmed he has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. After his announcement, he revealed he was leaving social media because he felt it was an “evil place,” but he did say there was a possibility he would return one day.

Now, he’s gone again.

Kanye Follows Pete On IG, Gets ‘Payback,’ Kim K Unfollows Ye + Kid Cudi Receives Supportive Message From Ye Amid Their Drama

The Kanye West social media sh*tshow continues after the premiere of his Netflix series "jeen-yuhs."

Today, Ye began following Pete Davidson’s new verified Instagram account before he posted up “payback” over an “SNL” skit Pete did about Ye’s mental health. That was enough for Ye’s estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, to unfollow the Chi-town rapper. Also, Ye offered up a supportive message to Kid Cudi after unnecessarily dragging him in the drama….

Kanye West continues his attention seeking antics as we get closer to the release of his upcoming album, DONDA 2, next week.

After “apologizing” and saying he’s taking accountability for his actions over his online rampages and on-wax threats, Ye is back to harassing his estranged wife’s boyfriend on social media.

As we previously told you, "SNL’s" Pete Davidson did not have an Instagram account. Well, that has seemingly changed. A verified account (@pmd) believed to be Pete’s popped up on IG with several celebs following, including Pete’s girlfriend Kim Kardashian and Ye’s fake ex-girlfriend Julia Fox. The account follows two people: Kim K and actor Sebastian Stan.

According to reports, it has been three years since Pete has been on social media, so the timing of his return only adds fuel to the ongoing drama. And y’all know Ye isn’t going to let anyone “one up” him, so he started following the IG account.

The Jesus Is King rapper announced he was following Pete’s new account:

 

Over the weekend, Ye went on social media war path, harassing both Pete and Kim in a series of now-deleted posts where he even leaked private text messages Kim sent him. You can catch up HERE.

Today, the DONDA rapper decided he would address a 2018 “SNL” skit Pete performed where he cracked jokes at Ye’s mental health.

In the “Weekend Update” skit, Pete joked about Ye taking his medicine after he appeared on “SNL” talking about Trump and wearing a MAGA hat.

"Kanye, I know you’re like, ‘Yo, this is the real me, I’m off the meds.’ Take ’em! There’s no shame in the medicine game, I’m on ’em! It’s great! Take them, there’s nothing wrong with taking them,” Pete said in the skit.

FYI – The “SNL” star, 28, previously confirmed he has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. After his announcement, he revealed he was leaving social media because he felt it was an “evil place,” but he did say there was a possibility he would return one day.

Now, he’s back and Ye is already with the sh*ts.

In response to the 3+ old clip, Ye posted a picture of Pete wearing a MAGA-style hat that read, “MAKE KANYE 2006 AGAIN,” and blasted him for cracking jokes about his mental health.

“HI SKETE YOU GOT ANYMORE MENTAL HEALTH JOKES FOR ME?,” the 44-year-old rapper captioned the pic.

Ye also shared a clip from the skit and called his harassing posts “payback.”

“This boy thought he could get away with performing this sketch for the team that wrote this for him This is not harassment This is payback," Kanye captioned the clip. 

Of course, the posts aren’t on his timeline because he deleted them – like he has been doing the entire time he has been harassing Kim & Pete.

You can watch the full “SNL” skit that had Ye in an uproar below:

Needless to say, Kim K is fed up with her baby daddy and decided to axe Ye out of her life digitally. The 41-year-old mom-of-four unfollowed him on IG:

Not surprised.

Despite the concocted drama Kanye made up between himself and his homie Kid Cudi, the rapper/producer seemingly still has love for Cudi.

Earlier this week, Kid Cudi hopped on Instagram, asking fans to send up prayers amid his feud with Ye. The Chi-town rapper called Kid Cudi out on his Instagram because he was upset that the rapper is still friends with Pete amid his baby mama drama.

Kid Cudi responds to Kanye West saying he won’t be on ‘Donda 2’ because he’s friends with Pete Davidson.

“We talked weeks ago about this. You’re whack for flipping the script and posting this lie just for a look on the internet. You ain’t no friend. BYE” pic.twitter.com/tih8M50xoJ

— Pop Base (@PopBase) February 12, 2022

“Just so everyone knows Cudi will not be on Donda because he’s friends with you know who,” Ye wrote on IG.

“Too bad I dont wanna be on ur album u fuckin dinosaur hahaha,” Cudi responded in Ye’s IG comments. “Everyone knows I’ve been the best thing about ur [albums] since I met u. Ima pray for u brother.”

Then Cudi tweeted, "We talked weeks ago about this. You’re whack for flipping the script and posting this lie just for a look on the internet. You ain’t no friend. BYE."

While leaving Super Bowl LVI, a photog asked Kid Cudi about Kanye, which pissed him off. He lunged at the photographer before his security snatched him up. Peep the clip above.

After the video went viral, Cudi shared this:

“God…please watch over me and keep my mind sane,” Cudi wrote, turning the comments off. “I could use it right now. To anyone who feels alone, I’m with you and I love you.”

The “Day ’N’ Nite” rapper has been vocal about his past struggles with mental health.

 

Kanye says “Love you family” to Kid Cudi pic.twitter.com/ctKCRoosev

— Watching the Throne (@KanyePodcast) February 16, 2022

 

In response, Ye took a screenshot of the post and wrote in the caption, “Love you family.”

Intersting, since it seems Cudi’s issue stems from Kanye not showing love.

By the way, the Netflix documentary “jeen-yuhs” premiered and folks are sharing their thoughts about it. Kanye tried to stop the documentary from seeing the light of day since wasn’t able to make the final cut approval.

Did you watch? If so, what did you learn about Ye?

Kanye West Says He Will Cancel Coachella Performance If Billie Eilish Doesn’t Apologize To Travis Scott + Ye & Kim Look-A-Like Chaney Jones Party It Up

Kanye West is threatening to cancel his Coachella performance if Billie Eilish doesn’t apologize for shading Travis Scott during a recent performance. Before his latest social media outburst, he hosted an album release party and Kim look-alike Chaney Jones came out to celebrate. And so did Kim’s sister Kendall Jenner.

All the deets inside…

Kanye West continues his social media showdown – now coming after artist Billie Eilish.

Ye is threatening to cancel his headlining Coachella performance if the singer doesn’t apologize to Travis Scott and the Astroworld Festival victims after she shaded Travis during a recent performance.

During a recent performance, the 20-year-old singer stopped her show to help a fan who appeared that they couldn’t breath.

“I wait for people to be OK until I keep going,” she said to the crowd.

Now, Ye is calling out Billie, who is also slated to headline during Coachella 2022.

In an Instagram post, he said “no one intended” for the deadly Astroworld tragedy to happen and that “Trav didn’t have any idea of what was happening when he was on stage.”

He said Travis “was very hurt” by the incident and then he confirmed that the SICKO MODE rapper will be joining him on stage at Coachella.

“But now I need Billie to apologize before I perform,” Ye concluded.

Sighs. Funny how Kanye didn’t threaten Coachella to NOT perform unless they let Travis perform despite organizers dropping him as a headliner in response to the Astroworld tragedy.  But he has so much smoke for the only female headliner who is less than half his age.

In 2019, BTW, Ye brought his Sunday Service to Coachella for Easter Sunday where he sold "church clothes" with an unholy price tag. 

Earlier this week…

Pelo visto o clima é de #mópaz entre Kendall e Kanye West.

Ye hosted an album listening party at Nobu in Malibu to celebrate the upcoming release of his DONDA 2 album where Travis Scott was in attendance. Oddly enough, Kendall Jenner – the younger sister of Ye’s estranged wife Kim Kardashian – was also in the mix. Damn. No loyalty, eh?

There was a Kim K look-alike who snagged an invite…and it was her second time seen with Kanye recently.

Ye likely dressed her too since we all know he loves dressing up his women with the same aesthetic.

We can only assume his “girlfriend” Julia Fox is cool with Ye doing what he does. She said recently they have an open-stye relationship, and no, she wasn’t there at the party.

Rappers Offset and French Montana also joined the crew before they made their way to the Sunny Vodka at celebrity hotspot The Nice Guy in Hollywood.

[UPDATE] DISGUSTING! Pastor Mike Todd Apologizes For Wiping Spit On Man’s Face During Sermon

WARNING! If you have a weak stomach – stop reading now.

Megachurch pastor Mike Todd did the unthinkable while demonstrating a lesson before his congregation on Sunday. And it involved bodily fluids being exchanged during a pandemic! Watch the clip (if you can stand it) inside…

UPDATE:

 

It’s never my intention to distract others from God’s Word and the message of Jesus… even with illustrations!

I apologize for my example being too extreme and disgusting!

After receiving backlash, Pastor Mike Todd posted a video on social media apologizing for his actions. He said the man in the video is his brother, but he said his actions were too extreme and disgusting. Watch the clip above.

———————————————————–

Whose pastor is this?!

A popular megachurch pastor is facing backlash after his disgusting demonstration during a recent sermon.

Pastor Mike Todd – lead pastor at the Transformation Church in Tulsa, OK – has gone viral after coughing up spit into his hand and then rubbing it on the face of one of his congregation members while discussing the topic, "Receiving a vision from God might get nasty." Umm…

While preaching to the congregation, he hawked up phlegm TWICE and held the saliva in his hand before rubbing in on the man’s face as his parishioners gasped in disbelief.

"How you just reacted, is how the people in your life will react when God is doing what it takes for the miracle," he said as the audience reacted in disgust. AS THEY SHOULD.

Not only is this disgusting – did he forget we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic with cases steadily rising? Like sir! Why did you ever think this was OK?!

Ye Thanks Travis Scott For Info About Chi’s B’Day Bash After Blasting Kim K For Leaving Him Out The Loop + Amber Rose Backtracks Old Tweet Amid Kardashian Drama

Kanye West thanked Travis Scott for providing him with the information he needed to attend his daughter Chicago’s 4th birthday bash after hopping online to publicly bash his estranged wife Kim Kardashian for supposedly not sharing the party deets with him.

Also, Amber Rose – Kanye’s ex- distanced herself from the drama after an old tweet resurfaced. Deets inside…

Kanye West is out here being Ye on 1,000.

On average, Ye keeps a pretty low profile on social media up until he’s ready to start promoting whatever he has coming down the pipeline. And his most recent antics fall in line with how he usually operates.

Since 2022 kicked off, he has been making headlines after the LAPD launched a criminal investigation against him for battery, his couples shoot with his new boo Julia Fox, publicly begging for his estranged wife Kim Kardashian back, his upcoming Netflix series “jeen-yuhs,” and that weird “Heaven and Hell” GAP commercial.

Yeah, a lot. However, the drama has seemingly just begun for Ye.

On Saturday, he hopped on social media, posting a video while driving where he explained Kim didn’t share the details about their daughter Chicago’s 4th birthday party with him.

In the beginning of the video, he literally said he made plans to work on his new album in Miami and in the next breath was complaining that he didn’t have the details for the party. So, which is it Ye? Were you scheduled to be Father of the Year or scheduled to work on your album in Miami? Make it make sense.

“I wasn’t allowed to know where her party was, there’s nothing legal that’s saying that this is the kind of game that’s being played,” he said in the video. “This is the kind of thing that really has affected my health for the longest and I’m just not playing. I’m taking control of my narrative this year. I’m being the best father—the Ye version of a father—and I’m not finna let this happen.”

While ranting about the birthday drama, he spilled tea on Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson. From what he said, it seems Khloe and Third Trimester Tristan are closer than fans thought after he revealed he made a baby with another woman while being in a relationship with Khloe.

“I done call Kim texted nannies, I got on the phone with Tristan,” he continued. “He asked Khloe [why] won’t nobody give me the address to my daughter’s birthday party right now. That’s gonna imprint in her mind that I wasn’t there for her. You get what I’m saying? They been takin’ fathers out of the homes purposefully,” he says. “So I’m speaking up. I’m using my voice to say this ain’t going to keep happenin’.”

The Kardashians celebrate Chi and Stormi’s (Kylie Jenner & Travis Scott’s daughter) birthdays together since their birthdates are just two weeks apart. Rapper Travis Scott had the info, so he shared it with Ye. After the party, Ye thanked the ASTROWORLD rapper for dropping the address deets:

 

JUST IN: Kanye West sends a thank you message to Travis Scott pic.twitter.com/fiXHRCbmDB

— RapTV (@raptvcom) January 16, 2022

 

“Yo, I’m so happy right now,” Ye said in another clip. “I just came from Chi’s party and I just gotta shout out to Travis Scott for sending me the address and the time, and making sure that I was able to spend that birthday memory with my daughter to be there with the rest of the family.”

“I just saw everybody. It was Kris (Jenner), Corey (Gamble) and Kylie — Kylie let me in right when I got to the spot, because security stopped me once again when I got there. It’s just a matter of having a conversation, open dialogue and everyone had a great time.”

Men love to cry to the world how their baby mama is mistreating them when he could have easily thrown his own party for Chicago if he was THAT concerned with celebrating her birthday. Also, her birthday rolls around at the same time every year, so why didn’t he get the information before the actual day of the party? Hmph.

it’s unclear if the information was being withheld from Ye, but even if it was, we could understand why being that he released a new track with rapper The Game where he threatened to beat up Kim K’s new boyfriend, “SNL” comedian Pete Davidson.

A source told Page Six Ye & Kim previously agreed to have two separate birthday parties for Chi.

“Kanye was always supposed to have Chi at 4,” the source explained. “They pre-agreed to have two separate events and it was his idea. Kim was shocked that he went on live accusing her when it was his idea to begin with to have two separate parties. She was going to have hers early in the day and he was throwing Chi her own separate party. No one was trying to stop him from coming.” 

Figured. All smoke and mirrors so he can appear as the victim.

During the drama, an old tweet from Amber Rose – Kanye’s ex – resurfaced where she blasted the Kardashians.

”@kanyewest I’ll leave that up to the Kardashians to humiliate u when they’re done with u,” Amber tweeted in February 2015.

She posted that tweet after the Jesus Is King artist when on Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” and said he had to take “30 showers” to rid himself of her.

Now, she’s backtracking on that tweet.

”Man F*** that old a** tweet,” she wrote on her IG Stories. “I never got an apology for his ’30 showers’ comment but f*** it. I started my Slutwalk and helped millions of women around the world stand up for themselves against Slut shaming so something amazing came out of it. Kim nor her sisters deserved that tweet and y’all shouldn’t co-sign that either. Sh*t was old and immature af of me to involve that Kardashians in the mess HE made," she wrote. 

"Moving forward… learn from my mistakes. We all have kids and family’s life is hard enough right now for a lot of ppl. I just wanna spread love and positivity – Muva,” she wrote.

During a recent interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Ye talked about how Kim’s security blocked him from coming inside Kim’s home after his eldest daughter, North West, asked him to come in.

“So at that point, security was in between me and my children and that’s what was not going to happen,” Ye recalled “But I didn’t want to argue about it. So I just chilled, took my kids to school, and then took my kids back. I am driving. I bring them back and North was like, ‘I want you to come upstairs and see something.’ And it’s like, ‘Oh, Daddy can’t come see something. Daddy can’t come inside.’ But that hadn’t been defined.”

The “Ultralight Beams” rapper shared he and Kim have not talked about him not being able to come inside the home and he claims Kim’s boyfriend Pete Davidson was inside the home when he wanted to visit his children.

“I was like, I am the richest Black man and North’s father, right, and the security was able to stop me from going into the room with my daughter and that had not been defined,” he said. “And I am hearing that the new boyfriend is actually in the house that I can’t even go to. And that’s where I call my cousins. And my cousins is real opinionated, you know that. And I said, ‘I need you to go and say these two things.’ Security ain’t going to be in between me and my children, and my children ain’t going to be on TikTok without my permission.”

It seems Ye – who was in attendance when Kim K hosted “SNL” – is pissed Kim invited him to attend her “SNL” hosting when she was secretly dating Pete at the time.

He asked, “How you gonna bring me to SNL and kiss the dude you dating right in front of me?”

“I can have my principles and things I’ve changed things, and I backslide, and I haven’t been the best Christian and things the media can make seem some kind of ways,” Ye said. “But at the end of the day, I’m Jesus gang. I’m about family, just me and my kids, parenting. And I mean, my kids’ mom we not together. I’m still gonna be the best dad.”

Oh. Okay, Ye.

Ye Wants Smoke With Pete Davidson, Fires Shots At Kim K’s Boo On Leaked Track ‘Eazy’

Kanye West is fighting to get his family back. Like, he literally wants to fight Pete Davidson – Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend. Hear the leaked bars that hit the Internet where he declares he wants all the smoke with the “SNL” comedian inside….

Although Kanye West has been publicly boo’d up with Uncut Gems actress Julia Fox on both coasts – don’t get it twisted. He STILL wants his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and his family back.  Because, men.

Last night, Ye shared promo for a new song with rapper The Game, which featured a skinned monkey with a red background, tagging The Game in the IG Stories post.

It’s unclear where the song will end up, but it’s clear Ye wanted that snippet leaked to the world.

Again, it’s Ye we’re talking about. He loves attention and he has several projects coming down the pipeline (like his ‘jeen-yuhs’ Netflix docu-series and a rumored music video with Cardi B), so he’s out here doing the most.

Like that strange link up with with ex-Bucs player Antonio Brown, famed boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. and singer Madonna:

Kanye West Declares He’s a Genius In Netflix Doc ‘jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy’ + Ye & Julia Fox Do Dinner With Antonio Brown

Kanye West has a three-part Netflix documentary coming down the pipeline titled “jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy,” which will get a nationwide theatrical release before it hits the streaming giant.

 

Watch Ye argue why he’s a genius in the teaser trailer, plus peep flicks from his night out in LA with his boo Julia Fox and ex-Buccs baller Antonio Brown inside…

 

Kanye West says he’s a genius and he has two decades worth of footage to prove it to the naysayers.

From visionary filmmakers Coodie & Chike, Netflix is set to release a three-part documentary about Kanye West (now legally known as Ye) titled, “jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy," that was 20 years in the making, which will showcase both his formative days trying to break through and his life today as a global brand and artist. It will chronicle Ye’s ascension to the top of the music charts, his relationship with his mother, Donda West, his reaction to her death, and more unseen home video footage and clips of him in Chicago in the 1990s.

“Me and Fest got into argument, God I feel like he disrespected me, man. Say I wasn’t a genius yet,” Ye said in the teaser.

“But who are you to call yourself a genius?,” Rhymefest asked as Ye smiles at the camera.

It’ll also focus on his failed attempt to run for president in 2020 as well as his failed marriage with his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.

Peep the teaser below:

"jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy" will hold its world premiere virtually at the Sundance Film Festival later this month. On February 10th, Iconic Events Releasing and TIME Studios will debut Act 1 (Vision) in theaters nationwide for a one-day engagement, giving Ye fans an exclusive opportunity to see part of this groundbreaking project before it premieres in a three-week event on Netflix on February 16th.

According to Page Six, Netflix coughed up a cool $30 million for the documentary. Sheesh. The Grammy winning rapper was not creatively involved, however, he “implied consent for Coodie and Chike to move forward with the project by way of granting them access to his life for the past 21 years.”

Also….

Ye released his new music video for “Heaven and Hell,” which also serves as the debut YEEZY Gap TV commercial. It premiered yesterday (Jan. 10th) on ESPN during the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

The Yeezy GAP hoodie – which is also seen in the "Heaven And Hell" music video – is available now globally for purchase. The hoodie is available in both adult and kids sizes in black or blue. It’s priced at $90 and it’ll ship in 4-8 weeks. Oh.

With his new relationship, the 44-year-old rapper has been out in these streets more than usual. He’s continuing his parade of his new days-old relationship with Uncut Gems actress Julia Fox. After doing date night in Miami and New York (that turned into a couples photoshoot for Interview magazine), the new couple was spotted on the west coast for the first time.

Arriving separately, Ye & Julia linked up at celeb hotspot Craig’s Monday night (Jan. 10th) seemingly rocking matching ‘fits. The Jesus Is King rapper is still wearing those huge boots and Julia is still wearing her new man’s favorite designer, Balenciaga.

Before the link up, it was rumored Ye wanted AB to join him in the studio. Sighs…

Speaking of the studio, Ye and Cardi B may have a new music video coming down the pipeline as sources said they are set to shut down a Balenciaga store in Miami to shoot it. We shall see…

'WINTER IS COMING': A LOOK AT TV SHOWS DROPPING WINTER 2021/22

REPORT: Kanye West & Cardi B Set To Shoot A Music Video Inside Miami’s Balenciaga Store + Julia Fox Appears On DONDA Creative IG

Balenciaga Buddies! Word on the curb is that Kanye West and Cardi B will link up at a Balenciaga store in Miami to shoot a new music video. Meanwhile, his new boo Julia Fox appears on his DONDA Creative Instagram account. Deets inside….

One thing Kanye West and Cardi B have in common is their love for luxury fashion house Balenciaga.

It’s Ye’s favorite brand and Bardi was chosen to be the face of luxe brand in 2020, so it’s not a total surprise the two came together for a high fashion link up. Also, the Balenciaga mama’s hubby, Offset, hit the runway for the Spring/Summer 2022 Balenciaga show during Paris Fashion Week a few months ago. 

A source told Page Six the Grammy winning artists are set to film a music video at the Balenciaga store in Miami’s Design District.

Last week, The DONDA rapper shared news he partnered with Balenciaga’s designer, Demna, on “Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga.”

Page Six reports:

“This first of its kind launch sees Ye’s peerless vision bring together the most influential designer of his generation, Demna, with iconic American brand, Gap,” reads the press release.

“Yeezy Gap engineered by Balenciaga continues Ye’s commitment to bringing creativity to the forefront and delivering his vision of utilitarian design for all.”

West and Gvasalia have been close friends for years, but have ramped up their collaborations as of late, with the designer serving as creative influence on many of the rapper’s recent musical and visual projects.

Interesting.

To kick off the new year, Ye was out in Miami gallivanting with his new actress BAE Julia Fox. He even dressed her up in Balenciaga threads for a COUPLES magazine shoot that gave very much Kim K 2.0 vibes.

After their date night, Ye had his team post up flicks of Julia on his DONDA Creative official Instagram account:

 

A few of Julia’s pictures are in one of the highlights on the DONDA Creative IG (with her picture as the cover), following several flicks of Ye’s estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, who is currently dating comedian Pete Davidson, posted weeks ago.

“It’s a desperate play for attention. There’s no other explanation when he chooses … [Fox] to go public with,” a source told Page Six. The source said he’s desperately trying to get under Kim’s skin with this new "relationship."  Womp.

Kanye West Seemingly Transforms Julia Fox Into A ‘Kim 2.0’ For Their COUPLES SHOOT In Interview Magazine + Ye Set To Headline Coachella

Kanye West and his new actress chick Julia Fox (who he has been dating for just a couple of days) are doing the absolute most for Interview magazine. See their “play dress up for date night” spread, plus deets on Ye headling Coachella inside…

After pictures of Kanye West and his new chick Julia Fox gallivanting around NYC hit the Internet, fans are now getting all the details about their date night.

It’s interesting because Kanye has expressed that he hates the media multiple times in the past, yet, he goes directly to said media to voluntarily promote his new days-old relationship with actress Julia Fox. 

The Uncut Gems star wrote an article for Interview magazine to go along with the couple’s “intimate photo shoot” that gives an inside look at their recent second date. They went to see Broadway’s Slave Play (of course) and then Ye had the restaurant turned into a fashion shoot for her – and had a whole new wardrobe of clothes from his favorite designers (like Balenciaga) brought in for her.

”I met Ye in Miami on New Year’s Eve and it was an instant connection,” Julia wrote. “His energy is so fun to be around. He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night. We decided to keep the energy going and fly back to New York City to see Slave Play. Ye’s flight landed at six and the play was at seven and he was there ON TIME. I was impressed. After the play we chose to do dinner at Carbone which is one of my favorite restaurants. Obviously.”

”At the restaurant, Ye directed an entire photo shoot for me while people dined!,” she continued. “The whole restaurant loved it and cheered us on while it was happening. After dinner Ye had a surprise for me. I mean, I’m still in shock. Ye had an entire hotel suite full of clothes. It was every girl’s dream come true. It felt like a real Cinderella moment. I don’t know how he did it, or how he got all of it there in time. But I was so surprised. Like, who does things like this on a second date? Or any date! Everything with us has been so organic. I don’t know where things are headed but if this is any indication of the future I’m loving the ride,” she concluded.

Sound familiar? It’s because his estranged wife Kim Kardashian (who is currently dating Pete Davidson) has revealed on multiple occasions he did the same thing for her – bought her a whole new designer wardrobe, got her in fashion magazines and made her his dress up doll while she was the mouthpiece for their relationship.

Guess she’s getting while the getting is good.  And Kanye is…being Kanye.  The timing of this is impeccable seeing that his estranged wife is currently on baecation with her new man Pete Davidson.

What happened to the Thanksgiving Prayer he released about a month and a half ago where he was adamant God would bring him and his wife “back together?”

In February, the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star filed for divorce from Kanye after almost seven years of marriage. They have four children, North (8), Saint (5), Chicago (3) and Pslam (2).

Previously, Kanye West reportedly purchased a $4.5 million home directly across the street from Kim and their kids. He copped the home – reportedly – so he could be closer to their four children. One of Kim’s complaints amid her divorce was that Kanye had made a life in Wyoming….away from her and the kids.

Just quit the mind games. We’re all TIREDT.

Ye will be bringing DONDA to Coachella following news that Travis Scott has been axed from the lineup. It’s being reported the Chi-town rapper will headline the 2022 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. It’s rumored he may stage a second Sunday Service performance for his set.

Billboard reports:

Billie Eilish is also in talks to headline the event — likely Friday — sources confirms.

The headliner news comes after a chaotic 48 hours for festival organizer Goldenvoice as it moves artists in and out of the event’s three headliner slots, originally set for the 2020 iteration that was postponed several times during the pandemic. Billboard has confirmed that previous headliners Travis Scott and Rage Against the Machine will no longer headline the 2022 edition of the festival after originally being tapped for the 2020 show. Scott was effectively dropped from the lineup following the tragic death of 10 attendees at his Astroworld festival in Houston on Nov. 5.

Both Ye and Eilish’s agreements still have to be finalized, and while a Sunday Service-style performance is still being considered, a return of the church-like event after it first debuted at the festival in 2019 has generated significant buzz. Ye previously headlined the 2011 edition of Coachella, while Eilish performed at the festival in 2019 — the last year the festival was held. Swedish House Mafia performed in 2012.

With the way this virus is spreading, 2022 Coachella might not even happen. We shall see.

Really, Bruh? Kanye West’s New Fling Julia Fox Once Partnered Up With Kim K’s Man Pete Davidson

Kanye West is out here gallivanting with actress Julia Fox. Turns out, she partnered up with Ye’s estranged wife Kim Kardashian’s new boo Pete Davidson on a project. Interesting. Coincidence? Probably not.

 

Find out what Ye and Julia have been up to (which includes slavery) inside…

 

New year, new boo for Kanye West? Possibly.

Since his wife of six years Kim Kardashian filed for divorce last year, Kanye West has been linked with several models (all while doing a performative plea begging for her to come back to him). The last one being an IG model. This time, he’s hooking up with hotties in Hollywood.

Last night, the DONDA rapper, 44, and the Uncut Gems actress, 31, along with a group of friends, stepped out to hit up Broadway’s August Wilson Theatre to see the Tony Award-nominated “Slave Play.”

”Slave Play” is a three-act play written by Jeremy O. Harris about race, sex, power relations, trauma, and interracial relationships.

Ye, Julia and their crew hung out for about 45 minutes after the show ended before heading to dinner at Greenwich Village eatery Carbone, a close production source told PEOPLE.

After dinner, it’s reported Julia went back at the rapper’s hotel, a source said. Oh?

“They arrived at the Pendry hotel in the same SUV they were in all night,” the eyewitness said. “Kanye got out first and ran in since there was a group of fans waiting for him outside. Julia then followed behind him.”

In November 2019, Julia linked up with “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson – Kim Kardashian’s new boo – for PAPER Magazine’s infamous #BreaktheInternet issue, serving up  Barbie Malibu Dream House vibes.

Coincidence? Probably not. We wouldn’t be surprised if Kanye researched women to “date” who have been linked to Pete.  It certainly wouldn’t be the first time he did some weird, petty, one-up BS.

Previously, Kanye West reportedly purchased a $4.5 million home directly across the street from Kim and their kids.

Sources Say Kanye West Is Not Dating IG Model Yasmine Lopez After Their Houston Link Up

Welcome to the single life! Kanye West was seen all smiles with Instagram model Yasmine Lopez, which instantly sparked dating rumors. However, it seems the two were just at the same place at the same time, at least, that’s what Ye’s camp is claiming. More inside…

Kanye West popped up in Houston this week to party it up.

On Tuesday night, Ye and social media personality Justin LaBoy pulled up to James Harden’s Thirteen restaurant where folks were gathered to celebrate entrepreneur Jaleska "J. Mulan" Holman’s birthday.

Videos of the Jesus Is King rapper at the bash started popping up on social media:

The Hip Hop artist and IG model were seen all smiles while chopping it up during the party, instantly sparking dating rumors. Turns out, they just happened to be at the same place at the same time…supposedly.

Folks in Ye’s camp reached out to TMZ to confirm Ye is NOT “dating” Yasmine. “They were there separately and interacted, but they’re not involved,” the source said.

Today, Yasmine hopped on IG Stories to call “cap” on the dating rumors. She also popped off on someone who she believes started the rumors:

”I never even respond to the ignorance but this right here has got to be the most [hat emoji] story ever. These people really are delusional. I went to my best friend birthday celebration then hopped on the plane back to my son,” she wrote. “First y’all say I’m fw Kanye now this. The Internet is Definitely undefeated.”

In another post, she continued, “I wasn’t even gone say nothing but sis didn’t you go f*** Kanye at the post oak now you crying about a 18 year old little boy talk about that’s your man? And have the nerve to say I fw him? LMFAO BEAT IT,” she wrote. “All that Kanye sh*t was NOT me? That’s why sis really mad. She threw that Lil old cat and didn’t get the recognition she wanted. Here you go baby! Pop yo sh*t!”

So, who is she talking to? We’re not exactly sure, but it’s possible she could be going off on former “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” star Chinese Kitty. Back in August, Chinese Kitty accused Yasmine of getting pregnant by her NFL ex, Trevon Diggs and they haven’t seen eye-to-eye since.

News of a possible new relationship comes on the heels of reports that Ye is single after breaking up with 22-year-old Russian model, Vinetria. It’s alleged they broke up after Ye’s umpteenth public plea for his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, to "run right back to" him. Apparently Vinetria was living in his Malibu home as well.

After the birthday bash in Houston, Ye and music exec J. Prince hopped on a flight to Belize:

Remember, it was J Prince who played a pivotal part in bringing Kanye and Drake together for the Free Larry Hoover show in Los Angeles earlier this month. The show was a huge success, bringing over 70,000 people to the L.A. Coliseum and bringing the rappers together as friends again.

No word on if Drake has any plans to hit Belize, but obviously another reunion is no longer out of the question.

Previously, Kanye West reportedly purchased a $4.5 million home directly across the street from Kim and their kids. He copped the home so he could be closer to their four children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

Kanye West Wasn’t Lying When He Said He Bought A Home Close To Kim’s, Drops $4.5M To Live Across The Street

When Kanye "Ye" West mentioned he copped a house next to his estranged wife Kim Kardashian last month, he wasn’t lying. While he didn’t get a house directly next door, he did scoop up a home across the street for $4.5 million. More inside…

 

It seems Kanye West is starting to realize his marriage to Kim Kardashian West is over. However, he’s seemingly trying to do whatever he can to stay as close to her (and their kids) as possible.

According to reports, the Jesus Is King rapper has purchased a $4.5 million home that sits right across the street from his estranged wife and their four kids, North (8), Saint (6), Chicago (3) & Psalm (2).

TMZ reports:

The home is just over 3,650 square feet, with 5 bedrooms. He reportedly paid $421,000 over asking … proof the real estate bidding war in SoCal is alive and well.

As we reported, Kanye gave Kim his interest in the family home … a home Kanye designed over a period of years. TMZ broke the story, there are still some property issues that remain unsettled, so Kim has asked the judge to grant her the divorce now, and leave the other issues for later down the road.

Kanye’s been wheeling and dealing lately in the real estate market … he bought a $57.3 million Malibu beach home back in September, and recently listed his $3.7 million former bachelor pad.

As for his new digs, it also has the obligatory swimming pool and a stable for horses. It needs a lot of work, but Ye has more than proven he’s up to the task.

Peep flicks of the fixer-upper here

Last month, Ye mentioned he purchased a home “right next” to Kim K – who filed for divorce in February – so they can co-parent effectively. You may recall, Kanye popped up at the Los Angeles Mission’s annual Thanksgiving Event to help feed the homeless on Skid Row. It was the first time he made a public declaration to try and win his wife and family back. 

During his speech, he revealed he is no longer living in the home he once shared with Kim and their four children and that he purchased the home next to Kim and the kids, so he can still be close to them.

“I have to be next to my children as much as possible,” he said. “So, when I’m out the house, I got a house right next to the house. I’m doing everything to be right next to the situation.”

Speaking candidly about his personal life, Ye shared how he wants to change the narrative about his relationships, specifically with his estranged wife.

“The narrative God wants is to see that we can be redeemed,” he began. “In all these relationships, we made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband.”  

The Chi-town rapper made his public declaration about wanting his wife and family back right after Kim K confirmed she was dating comedian/"Saturday Night Live" star Pete Davidson.

If Kim and Pete are getting serious, it looks like he’ll be seeing more of Ye than he likely wants to. But then again, they were cool at one point in time:

Tons of Virgil’s fashion friends were in the mix, including Kanye West and his estranged wife Kim K, Rihanna and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, Drake and more. Get it all inside….

Fashion visionary Virgil Abloh’s life was celebrated in his hometown of Chicago on Monday.

Tons of the designer’s close friends and family gathered at the Museum of Contemporary Art to celebrate his fruitful life, including Virgil’s longtime collaborator Kanye West and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian West, Drake, Rihanna and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, Tyler the Creator and more.

Singer Lauryn Hill was tapped to perform her classic 1998 track “Everything Is Everything,” but she got choked up while performing, fighting back tears as she paid her respects to Virgil.

Last Sunday, 41-year-old fashion designer Virgil Abloh – the founder & CEO of Off-White – died following a private battle with a rare, aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma.

Dressed in all black, the living legend wiped away tears from her face as she began to harmonize.

”I wrote these words for everyone who struggles in their youth,” she sang lyrics from her chart-topper, "Everything Is Everything."

The fashion visionary was known for his innovative work at Louis Vuitton (one of the oldest and most powerful luxury groups) as the menswear artistic director.

In March 2018, Virgil became the first Black man to become an artistic director at Louis Vuitton, and the third to lead a French luxury fashion house. It’s not every day a Black man is at the top of a French heritage house. It’s almost unheard of, so the fact that Louis Vuitton shook things up with some melanin magic was music to our ears.

He broke barriers, he shifted the culture and opened doors for young, Black designers in high-end fashion. May he rest in POWER!

Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Kanye & Kim, Offset, Quavo & More Pay Respects At Virgil Abloh’s Final Louis Vuitton Show

Friends of late fashion visionary Virgil Abloh jetted to Miami to pay their respects at the famed designer’s final Louis Vuitton show.

Rihanna and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, Kanye West and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian, along with their daughter North West, Offset, Quavo, Kid Cudi, Pharrell Williams and more were in the mix. Take a peek inside…

When news broke that famed fashion designer Virgil Abloh had passed away after a silent battle with cancer, there was speculation on whether or not his upcoming runway show would be canceled. Sadly, the 41-year-old – founder and CEO of Off-White & the first Black man to be an artistic director at Louis Vuitton – died before the menswear Louis Vuitton presentation of his Spring-Summer 2022 collection in Miami, Florida could happened.

With the blessing of Virgil’s family, the French fashion house announced the show would go on, sharing a short film to accompany the announcement.

Virgil was here.

”Virgil was here,” Louis Vuitton tweeted. “In loving memory of Virgil Abloh, Louis Vuitton pays tribute to the life and legacy of a creative genius with a presentation of his Spring-Summer 2022 Collection in Miami on November 30th at 5:30 pm (ET).”

The runway show was morphed into a celebration of life for a groundbreaking Black creative who shifted the culture. It was an opportunity for Virgil’s family, friends, and colleagues to come together for a memorial service of sorts to pay their respects to a man who paved the way for many young designers to come.

On Sunday, Virgil Abloh passed away after a silent battle with a rare form of cancer. He was 41.

When guests arrived on the Marine Stadium grounds, they were met with a 30-foot rainbow sculpture of Virgil holding an LV vinyl record case as he looked skyward over the city. There was a red hot air ballon with the LV logo on it and and a paper plane sculpture in the center of the runway – all pieces meant to evoke the wonder of coming of age. It was just like Virgil envisioned it as the show was already prepared before his death.

According to Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke, Virgil, started creating and discussing the coming of age show concept three years ago. His final presentation was something he was proud of and attendees were able to celebrate his life and soak in his new menswear designs, which he would have wanted.

“It was the wish of Virgil’s wife, Shannon, and his family that tonight’s show and concert went ahead,” Michael Burke said. “And I am deeply grateful to everyone here that we have honored that wish. The last time that I spoke with Virgil was on Saturday evening. He talked with passion about the finer details of the show: the symbolism of the paper plane, and the balloons, the sequencing of the collection looks, the concert we are about to experience. He had imagined it all, and he was distraught not to be here to share it with us in person.”

Tons of celebs came out to celebrate the multi-hyphenate creative, including Rihanna and her boyfriend A$AP Rocky, a reunited Kanye "Ye" West & his estranged wife Kim Kardashian (who’s currently dating Pete Davidson), along with their daughter North West, Migos rappers Offset & Quavo (who walked in the show), superproducer Pharrell Williams, designer Kerby Jean-Raymond, Lil Baby, Gunna, producer Metro Boomin’ and more. Rapper Kid Cudi walked in the show and performed, as well as Erykah Badu, who provided the tunes on the 1s & 2s.

It was a night full of fashion and love for a man who helped push fashion towards more diversity and inclusion.

Kanye West’s ‘Thanksgiving Prayer’ Is To Get Kim K Back, Says God Will Bring ‘KimYe’ Back Together To ‘Inspire Millions’

Now that Kim Kardashian has confirmed she’s dating Pete Davidson, her estranged husband Kanye “Ye” West is pulling out all the stops in an effort to get her back. Find out what he’s doing now inside….

Like that song Timbaland and One Republic released, "It’s toooo late to apologize. It’s toooo late."

Kanye “Ye” West is guilt-ridden and he’s reflecting on all of the mistakes he made in the past few years. The mistakes he made that caused him to lose his wife Kim Kardashian and his family are heavy on his mind and NOW he seemingly wants his old life back.

 

This shit still doesn’t click with me. How is this real LMAO pic.twitter.com/DMC33ZhM9y

The timing of his public declaration about wanting his wife & family back is interesting being that she recently confirmed she’s dating comedian Pete Davidson. Now that she’s wrapped up in a new situation, Ye wants to seemingly fight for his marriage. How convenient. Everything was seemingly as good as it was going to get (considering the circumstances). Kim K showed up to several of Kanye’s DONDA listening events (one time dressed up in a wedding gown) and he was present for her "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig last month. 

Yesterday, the Chi-town rapper grabbed a microphone to share a few words during an appearance at the Los Angeles Mission’s annual Thanksgiving Event. The event provides Thanksgiving Day meals to the homeless on Skid Row.

Speaking candidly about his personal life, Ye shared how he wants to change the narrative about his relationships, specifically with his estranged wife.

“The narrative God wants is to see that we can be redeemed,” he began. “In all these relationships, we made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband.”

Telling the world your wife was considering an abortion would definitely be one of those mistakes.

“But right now today, for whatever reason — I didn’t know I was going to be in front of this mic, but I’m here to change the narrative.”

The DONDA rapper said he wasn’t going to let big networks like E! and Hulu write the narrative for his family. He accused the networks controlling the way that he and his family are perceived on their reality shows.

”I am the priest of my home,” he continued.

The Jesus Is King rapper is no longer living in the home he once shared with Kim and their four kids (North, Saint, Chicago & Psalm), but he revealed he copped the home next to it so he can still be close to them.

“I have to be next to my children as much as possible,” he said. “So, when I’m out the house, I got a house right next to the house. I’m doing everything to be right next to the situation.”

Ye said he believes God will bring “KimYe” back together, and when he does, it’ll influence millions of families to work through their issues and stay together.

“If the enemy can separate KimYe, there’s going to be millions of families that feel like that separation is OK,” he explained. “But when the kingdom, when God brings KimYe together, there’s going to be millions of families that are going to be influenced to see that they can overcome the work of the separation, of trauma the devil has used to capitalize to keep people in misery,”

A post shared by TheYBF (@theybf_daily)

After speaking at the Thanksgiving Event, Kanye posted a 5-minute “Thanksgiving Prayer” on his Instagram account where he reflected on the mistakes he has made over the last five years.

The 44-year-old rapper started off saying how thankful he is for his family, fans and even his haters. He mentioned he started writing the letter right after his son, Saint, played a game of catch with NFL QB Tom Brady.

Then, he goes how bad he wants to get his family back, ponders how can he heal the pain he caused, and he said, “I take accountability for my actions.”

The father-of-four talked about being addicted to alcohol and how it heightened his “hair trigger temper."  He talked about having a “manic episode in 2016."  After that, he was prescribed heavy medications after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder. However, he would take them and then stop, which made him “susceptible to other episodes which my wife and family and fans have had to endure.”

He addressed how after getting saved, it didn’t “immediately make him a better person. It made a self-righteous Christian.”

Switching gears, he opened up about wearing Trump’s red MAGA (Make America Great Again) and how that affected his estranged wife.

“Good lord my wife did not like me wearing the red hat,” he shared. “Being a good wife, she just wanted to protect me and our family. I made me and our family a target by not aligned with Hollywood’s political stance and that was hard for our marriage.”

“Then I ran for president without proper preparation and no allies on either side. I embarrassed my wife in the way that I presented information about our family during the one and thank God only press conference.”

You can watch the full video above. Turning the Thanksgiving holiday into something all about him? Sounds like Ye.

On social media….

 

Ye shared a TMZ headline about his antics, tagging his estranged wife. It’s killing him she’s spending time with another man. The kicker? It seems Ye & Pete were homies at one point in time:

These “wanting my family” comments come just a few weeks after Ye spoke out about his split from Kim K for the first time. During his interview on "Drink Champs," he said he hadn’t even seen any divorce papers from Kim. In February, the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star filed for divorce from Kanye after almost seven years of marriage. They have four children, North (8), Saint (5), Chicago (3) and Pslam (2).

ALL FALLS DOWN!! REACTIONS & MEMES TO KANYE WEST & KIM KARDASHIAN'S DIVORCE ANNOUNCEMENT!

Ye Stirs The Pot On ‘Drink Champs’ – Slanders Big Sean & Just Blaze (Both Respond), Still A Proud Trump Supporter, Says Kim Is ‘Still His Wife’

Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) sat down with N.O.R.E. & DJ EFN for a new "Drink Champs" podcast episode. During their chat, the Chi-town native shaded Big Sean & Just Blaze, touched on his political beliefs (yep, he’s still reppin’ for Trump), says his estranged wife Kim Kardashian is still his wife, and he also revealed he left his longtime label, Def Jam.

 

Highlights inside…

N.O.R.E. warned us – Ye was coming!

And to everyone’s surprise, he actually showed up. He rarely misses an oppotunity to stir (and smoke) the pot when he knows he’ll be among superfans…

Kanye West is no longer Kanye West. Last month, a Los Angeles judge approved Kanye’s request to legally change his name from Kanye Omari West to just Ye. No middle or last name.

So yeah, Ye sat down with Noreaga and DJ EFN to chop it up on "Drink Champs," a podcast that also airs on Diddy’s REVOLT. It was like watching old friends catch up. Ye was seemingly happy and N.O.R.E. was giddy throughout the interview as they both sipped Henny and sparked up blunts.

When asked if he would do a VERZUZ battle, he joked he would need four people to go up against him at one time. When asked if he would do one with Jay-Z:

"Nah, cause that’s my boss. I would never go against Jay," he said.

The G.O.O.D. Music founder slammed his former artist Big Sean during the interview. He said signing Big Sean to his record label was the "the worst thing I’ve ever done."

"When I die, on my tombstone it’s gonna say, ‘I deserve to be here because I signed Big Sean,’" he said.

Ye also went in on singer John Legend, who has been vocal about his disgust with the rapper for supporting Donald Trump. Turns out, Ye was pissed at both of them for their lack of support during his 2020 presidential run.

"I know this man [Big Sean] mama, bro. You know what I’m saying? I’ve changed this man family," he said. "And both John Legend and Big Sean, when I ran for office, got used quick by the Democrats to come at they boy that actually changed they life. And that’s some sellout sh*t, and I don’t rock with neither of them, and I need my apologies."

Big Sean caught wind of Ye’s comments and wondered why his former boss didn’t say what he had to say to his face when they were around each other AFTER he taped the interview:

"I just got asked to be on the next Drink Champs so I’m assuming Ye talkin crazy," he tweeted.

And he came with receipts:

— Wave Check (@thewavecheckk) November 5, 2021

During the show’s “Quicktime with Slime” segment, Ye was asked which producer was superior: Swizz Beatz or Just Blaze?

“Well, Swizz Beatz, definitely, because Just Blaze is a copycat, you know. He get credit for The Blueprint, and I did the first half of The Blueprint, and he just copied my half. I mean look—look where I’m at today and look where he at today. So that should show you…”

Peep the clip above.

Word got back to Just Blaze, so he took to social media to react and served up a mature and civil response:

A post shared by Just Blaze (@justblaze)

In a message posted to his Instagram, Just Blaze said when Ye spoke on about him during the interview did not align with “previous interactions” they’ve shared. And he also said he’s happy for what the Jesus Is King rapper has been able to accomplish during his career.

“Respectfully, I’m happy for him and the fact that he has succeeded in the ways he wanted to, but not everyone wants to be where he is,” he wrote. “Everyone’s definition of personal success is a bit different. I’m quite happy where I am creatively, with my family, and my life in general. We were a part of history together and I wish him well and continued success.”

Good for him.

Despite Ye & Kim Kardashina’s ongoing divorce, he still refers to her as his wife.

While talking about Kim K helping him organize his things, he referred to the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" alum as "my wife, because she’s still my wife, ain’t no paperwork."

Oh. You’ll recall, Kim K filed for divorce from the Grammy winner in February after six years of marriage and four children. So, there’s paprwork – it just hasn’t been finalized yet…IF they both decide to go through with it.

As for his political beliefs, he’s still a proud Donald Trump/MAGA supporter.

“I still got a red hat on today. I’ll let y’all know that. I might not got it on, but I’ll let y’all know where I stand," he said.

No surprise there.

A post shared by HipHop-N-More (@hiphopnmore)

While talking about his 10 contracts with Def Jam Records, he revealed he’s no longer signed to Def Jam after 17 years and 10 solo studio albums. DONDA was his last album that was released on Def Jam Records. Last September, Ye took to Twitter to air out his frustrations with UMG (which owns Def Jam). You can catch up HERE.

The "Heartless" rapper also touched on cancel culture and why he’s not phased by it.

"They can’t cancel us all…I love it, I’m above it. I’m running to get canceled," he said.

During the rollout of DONDA, Ye caught backlash for bringing out DaBaby and Marilyn Manson during his album listening party in Chicago.

“All the #Me Too—like, when I sit next to Marilyn Manson and DaBaby, right after both of them got canceled, for five songs, you know, it’s like they can’t cancel a song,” said West. “They’ll hit you with the accusations or somebody who you was with 10 years ago. And also, there’s women who’ve been through very serious things, pulled in alleys against they will—that’s different than a hug, but it’s classified as the same thing. It’s power and politics. You know, power-hungry maniacs and just control. This is 1984 mind-control we’re in.”

Sighs.

Kanye West Joins Kim K For Her ‘SNL’ Debut As She Jokes About Their Divorce, Sources Say They Were Flirting On Set

Kim Kardashian West has jokes! And she’s using her pending divorce from Kanye West as a punchline during her "Saturday Night Live" monologue. Go inside to see how she did and what folks were saying about the couple inside…

Kim Kardashian West is in the building! And yes, she’s still adding West to her name.

On Saturday, Kim Kardashian West made her "Saturday Night Live" debut, hitting the stage in an all-pink ensemble to host. And chick cracked some good and cringey jokes during her monologue.  Of course, she was spoonfed with all the help in the world from comedy honchos Dave Chappelle, Michelle Wolf, Ellen DeGeneres, Amy Schumer and James Corden, reportedly. She reportedly also rehearsed about 20 hours a day leading up to this because she was terrified of bombing.

The 40-year-old reality star opened the show with a proud introduction of herself as "Kim Kardashian West." And her estranged husband Kanye West, 44, was right in the audience to support after being spotted with Kim the night before (below).

The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" alum joked about her being labeled as a "gold digger."

"I’m excited to be here tonight to show you guys that I’m so much more than just a pretty face and good hair and great makeup and amazing boobs and a perfect butt," she said. "Basically, I’m just so much more than that reference photo my sisters showed their plastic surgeons."

"But the one thing I’m really proud of is that no one can ever call me a gold digger," Kardashian West continued. "Honestly, I’m not even sure how you become one. So I asked my mom’s boyfriend Corey [Gamble]."

Weak! Whoever wrote her jokes need a raise.

As you know, Kim K filed for divorce from Kanye in February. She used the high-profile breakup as a punchline on Ye’s personality.

"I’ve been very blessed in this life, and I’m grateful for everything, honestly, all the ups, all the downs," she said. "I mean, I married the best rapper of all time. Not only that, he’s the richest Black man in America, a talented, legit genius, who gave me four incredible kids."

She continued, "So when I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality. I know it sounds mean, but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth. And if there’s one thing that I always strive to be, it’s genuine."

Sources told Page Six the DONDA rapper left the audience shortly after the show’s opening. But before he left, Kim supposedly “blew a kiss” to her friends in the audience, which included Kanye, her bestie LaLa Anthony, her sister Khloe Kardashian, her momager Kris Jenner and her mom’s boyfriend, Corey Gamble.

Before her big moment, sources told PEOPLE that the mom-of-four was feeling pressure and anxiety before her gig, but Ye helped her out by giving her hosting tips.

In addition to cracking jokes on her family – including Caitlyn Jenner – she also joked about her late dad’s friend/former NFL star O.J. Simpson. She said her father, Robert Kardashian, introduced her to the first Black person she ever met.

“It’s because of my father I met my first Black person. Want to take a stab in the dark at who it was?," she asked with a grin on her face. "I know it’s sort of weird to remember your first Black person you met, but OJ [Simpson] does leave a mark. Or none at all, I still don’t know.”

WOW. Shocked, but not shocked she said this.

Below are some reactions to the OJ joke:

Drake Leaks Kanye West’s ‘Life Of The Party’ Diss Track Aimed At Him Featuring Andre 3000 & Late DMX

The Drake vs. Kanye West beef just ascended to a new level. While celebrating the release of his Certified Lover Boy album, Drake leaked an unreleased Kanye West and Andre 3000 track titled "Life of the Party" (that also features late rapper DMX).

On the track, Ye takes shots at the 6 God. How did Drizzy get his hands on it? More inside…

Just when you thought the "rap beef" was over…

Drake and Kanye West‘s "rap beef" was just ascended to another level. While celebrating the release of his sixth studio album Certified Lover Boy, Drake hopped on SiriusXM’s Sound 42 radio to host a mix where he initiated more petty levels.

You’ll recall, Drizzy & Kanye have been at war, dropping addresses, subliminal social media videos and worldwide billboards as they both recently dropped new albums – Certified Lover Boy & DONDA –  to the masses.

Early this morning, the Young Money rapper hosted a guest mix on SiriusXM’s Sound 42 radio show in which he pulled a villainous move in his ongoing rap war with ‘Ye. Drake leaked a DONDA outake by Kanye West that features iconic rapper Andre 3000 titled “Life of the Party” where ‘Ye directly fires shots at the Canadian rapper:

"I put Virgil and Drake on the same text/And it wasn’t about the matching Arc’teryx or Kid Cudi dress/Just told these grown men stop it with the funny shit/I might hire the whole team from ACG/ So don’t text me like I’m Juanita JCV/Or more important, Monica Corgan, who was there for me/Somebody really there for me, was rare for me"

Andre 3000 tributes Donda West and his own mother on his leaked song with Kanye pic.twitter.com/HkuFDCYspM

— (@YESEEGHOSTS) September 4, 2021

Andre 3000 reflected on the loss of his parents, which matches up with Kanye’s theme since he named his album after his late mother, Donda West.

“Hey Miss Donda, if you ran into my mama, please tell her I said, ‘Say something’/I’m starting to believe ain’t no such thing as Heaven’s trumpets/No after-over, this is it, done/If there’s a Heaven, you would think they’d let you speak to your son,” Andre 3000 raps.

Near the end of the song, the Chi-town rapper issues a final warning shot to Drizzy, rapping:

“Told Drake don’t play with me on GD/And he sent that message to everybody/So if I hit you with a ‘WYD’/You better hit me with, ‘Yes sir, I’m writing everything you need’/I told you I was gonna take the summer back/So any of the cap, won’t take none of that/Where my muthafuckin’ red hat?”

It appears ‘Ye’s camp has been in overdrive as audio of the song was posted on social media after Drake leaked it can no longer be found. You may be able to search for the song and hear it real quick, but trust, it won’t be there long.

At the end of the track, audio of late rapper DMX playing with his daughter is featured, which caused fans to get emotional.

Drizzy’s leak is another chess move in his ongoing "beef" with Kanye. On his track “7am On Bridle Path,” the Canadian rapper addressed Kanye posting his address on social media while mocking his Yeezy fashion line:

"Get that address to your driver, make it your destination/Stead of just a post out of desperation,” he raps on the song.

During the radio show, the Young Money rapper also debuted a few unreleased tracks of his own, playing his Plaboi Carti remix "One Day" as well as a collaboration with Nigerian singer Rema called “Mention Me.”

Now, the ball is in ‘Ye’s court…

Drake’s Long-Awaited ‘Certified Lover Boy’ Album Drops, Twitter Cuts Up Over Ayesha Curry Lyric – SEE STEPH & AYESHA’S RESPONSES!

Drake‘s highly-anticipated Certified Lover Boy album has finally dropped and fans are soaking in his musical offering while deciphering bars on each track. On one song, Drizzy name drops Ayesha Curry – wife of NBA baller Steph Curry – and social media is cutting up.

It’s finally here.

Drake dropped his long-awaited Certified Lover Boy Album today, months after it was originally set to be released in January. He shared he delayed the album release because he had to undergo surgery and recuperate from the procedure.

Leading up to the release of his sixth studio, Drizzy executed a genius rollout. He made headlines for his "rap beef" with Kanye West, his pregnant emoji album cover art received the meme treatment, he had dueling billboards in his hometown of Toronto with ‘Ye, and he even posted up digital billboards across the country, announcing which artists would be featured on his new album.

Certified Lover Boy is loaded! It has 21 tracks with features from Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Travis Scott, Giveon, Rick Ross, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Future, Ty Dolla $ign, Project Pat, Yebba, Kid Cudi and Nigerian singer TEMS.

At midnight, east coast fans took to streaming platforms looking for CLB, but it hadn’t been released just yet. Folks thought Drizzy was pulling a "DONDA," but he tweeted the album would drop at 2AM EST.

Once it dropped, Drizzy fans were quick to share their thoughts about the album on social media. On one track titled "Race My Mind," it appears the Canadian rapper name dropped fellow Canadian-American, Ayesha Curry – wife of Golden State Warriors player Steph Curry. Check it:

"How I’m supposed to wife it if you ain’t Ayesha enough," the Young Money rapped. "You love getting T’d up. Love showing the cakes you know that they eat it up."

Now, it sounds like Drake is hinting that Ayesha is the standard of woman he’s looking for when it comes to tying the knot. 

Social media reacted to the name drop with several tweets:

Watch everyone suddenly talk about girls not being “Ayesha enough” even tho they were unnecessarily slandering Ayesha Curry on the internet for months. #CertifiedLoverBoy #CLB pic.twitter.com/R502vIBych

One Twitter user wrote, "Watch everyone suddenly talk about girls not being “Ayesha enough” even tho they were unnecessarily slandering Ayesha Curry on the internet for months."

Hmph. It is interesting that Drake deems Ayesha the holy grail for a wife when he created a baby with a porn star and proudly professes his obsession with strippers and scantily clad IG models. Like, is Drake even Steph Curry enough to be a husband? Just saying.

It appears the Ayesha reference was cleared since both Steph & Ayesha showed Drizzy some love on social media after the release of his album:

By the way, Drake also named dropped Kelis in the same song:

"You’re too saucy, too flossy you moved in and moved off me all to be with n***** who just started to move bossy, maybe I just handled you too softly. Them boys got no Kelis in they blood," he rapped. 

Have you listened to CLB yet? If so, what are your thoughts?! Is it better than Kanye West’s DONDA?
