Kanye West is out for blood. The Grammy winner is somewhere between trying to regain his family and exacting revenge on ex-wife Kim Kardashian for moving on. The complicated dynamic only gets blurrier when you factor in his social media outburst and how he’s attacked just about anyone too close to the situation. West has expressed that Kim made it impossible to communicate with her, so instead, he’s taken to taunting Pete Davidson on social media. His latest post, however, seems to indicate that Kim has gotten the message and wants him to stop. Not only for her sake but for Pete as well, whose life is reportedly in danger.
Kanye West has been fighting for his family since Thanksgiving. At the time, he posted a “prayer” to Youtube, where he asked for help getting his family back together. He doubled down on this during his Free Larry Hoover concert, singing “Run back to me Kim” during his performance of “Runaway.”
Things took an abrupt turn when West began complaining about Kim not allowing him to see their kids and moving on with comedian Pete Davidson. He took direct issue with the SNL star and began calling him “Skete” in a series of now-deleted IG posts and Tweets taking aim at the actor and disrespecting him. Kanye’s anti Pete campaign is so strong that he’s even denounced former protege and frequent collaborator Kid Cudi due to him being friends with Pete.
In a handwritten note posted to his IG, Kanye West said, “Just so everyone knows, Cudi will not be on Donda because he’s friends with you know who. We all speak in Billie language now.” Cudi was not happy about this and even attempted to attack paparazzi over the weekend who tried to ask him about West’s comments. While he seemed really upset in person, online Cudi seemed to have a sense of humor about it tweeting, “Too bad I don’t wanna be on ur album u dinosaur hahaha (laughing emoji). Everyone knows I’ve been the best thing about ur albums since I met u. Ima pray for u, brother (peace sign emoji).”
Kanye seems unfazed by this and continues taunting his ex-wife online. Several blogs are circulating images of a black pickup truck filled with roses that Kanye allegedly sent Kim. He posted about it on his IG, saying, “My vision is krystal klear” with several rose emojis. The caption was also displayed on the side of the truck in white letters.
In a follow-up post, he shared an image from the film Baby Boy starring Tyrese where his character Jody is in a headlock by his mother’s boyfriend. The following image was a screenshot of a text message from “Kim Other Phone,” reading, “U are creating a dangerous and scary environment, and someone will hurt Pete, and this will all be your fault.”
Kanye West later continued his bid to get his estranged wife back in a new post stating, “thank you. there are dangerous people out there, and this is scary, and it doesn’t have to be.” West responded, saying he would always protect his family and that “nothing physical” would happen to “Skete.” Do you think Pete’s life was really in danger? What is Kanye’s end game?
