Kanye West launches incredible Twitter rant insisting he has been trying to divorce Kim Kardashian for two years
Rapper Kanye West has launched an extraordinary rant on social media in which he appeared to call for a divorce from wife Kim Kardashian.
The 43 year-old, who married Kardashian six years ago and has had four children with the reality star, has been maintaining a high profile in recent weeks, promoting his credentials as a presidential candidate ahead of the release of his new album on Friday.
He held his first presidential rally in South Carolina on Sunday after it was confirmed earlier this month he will be running for the Oval Office.
But it is his bizarre tirade on social media that has drawn most attention.
West claimed that his wife and mother-in-law Kris Jenner - who he refers to as ‘Kris Jong-Un’ ' had 'tried to fly in with two doctors' to have him hospitalised amid concerns about his well-being after his bizarre entry into the 2020 presidential race.
He said: "They tried to fly in with 2 doctors to 51/50 me.
"I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Waldorf for 'prison reform'.
This was a reference to an occasion when Kardashian met rapper Meek Mill in November 2018 to speak at the inaugural Criminal Justice Reform Summit in LA.
Kanye continued: "Meek is my man and was respectful. That’s my dog. Kim was out of line.
"I’m worth 5 billion dollars and more than that through Christ. But ya’ll ain’t listen to MJ and now ya’ll believe them???"
"I got 200 more to go. This my lady tweet of the night … Kris Jong-Un. Lil Baby my favorite rapper but won’t do a song wit me."
He later posted another bizarre message which read: "Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval … that’s not what a wife should do White supremacy", before signing off: "Says the future President."
Kardashian is yet to respond to her husband’s outburst.
