- Khloé Kardashian and Kanye West are now having a public feud on Instagram.
- Responding to a post on Wednesday, she asked him to “STOP tearing Kimberly down” and the family.
- He responded to her appeal by saying the Kardashians “kidnapped” Chicago’s daughter on her birthday.
The back-and-forth between the Kardashian family and Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, is once again happening on a public platform — this time between Ye and his former sister-in-law, Khloé Kardashian.
It all started when Ye posted on Instagram calling out celebrities, including supermodel Gigi Hadid, for criticizing him for wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt at YZYSZN9’s Paris fashion show on Monday — but didn’t back him up when he said he didn’t. to know where his daughter was on her birthday. Kardashian was quick to jump in on the comments.
“Yes, I love you. I don’t want to do this on social media,” the comment began, “but YOU keep bringing it up here.”
Kardashian went on to accuse her former brother-in-law of name-dropping the Kardashians to deflect whenever she’s criticized in the media. “Please STOP tearing Kimberly down and using our family,” her comment read in part.
“You know exactly where your kids are at all times and you wanted a special birthday. I’ve seen all the texts to prove it. And when you changed your mind and wanted to attend, you came,” Kardashian’s response continued.
She ended her statement by asking Ye to leave Kim and her family “out” of his controversies so the children can “grow up in peace.”
“I come from a place of love and I’m happy to continue this conversation privately if you wish,” he concluded.
The birthday comments appear to refer to a celebration in January 2022 in which Chicago West, Ye’s 4-year-old daughter with Kim Kardashian, celebrated her birthday at a joint party with her cousin Stormi Webster, daughter of Kylie Jenner with Travis Scott. The rapper previously claimed he wasn’t allowed to see Chicago on her birthday and “wasn’t allowed” to know where the party was, though he did eventually make it to that party.
After seeing Khloé’s comment, Ye responded with a new post on his Instagram account that included a screenshot of her response.
“YOU LIE AND ARE LIARS BASICALLY TOLD CHICAGO ON HER BIRTHDAY TO REMEMBER HER DAD WASN’T THERE,” he wrote in all caps.
Ye went on to say in his Instagram response to Khloé on Wednesday that Travis Scott was the person who gave him the address at the party, stating that the Kardashians are “PLAYING WITH BLACK DADDYS.”
And, in addition to mentioning Chicago’s birthday, he claimed that something similar happened with his son Psalm’s birthday and that he wants to see his children more often.
Ye has been responding to the social media controversy since Monday after he was criticized for displaying “White Lives Matter” shirts at his fashion show in addition to wearing one himself.
When Vogue fashion editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson criticized the shirts on Instagram – saying the message behind them was “dangerous” because it “justifies mass incarceration, mass murder and even the advent of slavery” – Ye took offense Karefa-Johnson and the outfit in a now-deleted post. That’s when Hadid stepped in and called Ye “a bully and a joke,” according to footage from Popcrave.
Ye says he has since patched things up with Karefa-Johnson. Reps for Ye and the Kardashians did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
