Kanye West says he ‘takes accountability’ for ‘jarring’ posts directed at Kim Kardashian
Ye said he is "working on" his communication skills when it comes to his estranged wife
The artist formerly known as Kanye West (AKA Ye) said he will chill out with the “jarring” social media posts aimed at his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and her boyfriend, Pete Davidson.
West’s newfound approach to accepting that the mother of his four children has moved on with a new man comes after he spent the weekend posting numerous memes and harassing messages online about Kardashian and Davidson, Buzzfeed reports.
The rapper has deleted all but two posts from his IG page. One is a motivational message and the other shows him standing solo on a stage surrounded by smoke. In the caption, Ye noted that he is “working on” his communication skills.
“I’ve learned that using all caps makes people feel like I’m screaming at them. I’m working on my communication,” he wrote. “I can benefit from a team of creative professionals, organizers, mobilizers and community leaders. Thank everybody for supporting me.”
Inquiring minds want to if Ye had “professionals, organizers, mobilizers and community leaders” on his team, would he listen to their advice, or would his ego constantly get in the way of progress?
On Tuesday, Ye shared screenshots of texts he received from Kardashian warning him that his unhinged antics are putting Davidson at risk of being attacked in public by one of Ye’s rabid fans.
Kardashian said in the texts that West is “creating a dangerous and scary environment and someone will hurt Pete and this will be all your fault.” She added: “There are dangerous people out there and this is scary and it doesn’t have to be.”
Her texts came after Ye tweeted Monday, “UPON MY WIFE’S REQUEST PLEASE NOBODY DO ANYTHING PHYSICAL TO SKETE IM GOING TO HANDLE THE SITUATION MYSELF.” The caption accompanied a screenshot from the 2001 film Baby Boy showing Ving Rhames putting Tyrese Gibson in a chokehold.
After Kardashian asked her ex to curb his public comments about her relationship with Davidson, West reportedly wrote back, “I will always do everything to protect you and our family forever. And I listened to you and told everyone to make sure nothing physical happens to Skete.”
When she asked why he made their private texts public, the hip-hop star responded, “Cause I got a text from my favorite person in the world.”
Ye continued, “I’m your number one fan … Why wouldn’t I tell everyone!!!!”
Last week, he called on a higher power to step in and save their marriage, theGrio reported.
“GOD PLEASE BRING OUR FAMILY BACK TOGETHER,” West wrote in all caps under a photo collage with Kardashian and their children on Instagram.
Kardashian officially filed for divorce about a year ago after seven years of marriage.
In December, Kardashian filed additional paperwork to be declared a “legally single” woman.” But West has spent the last few months lashing out in public in apparent attempts to rekindle the couple’s romantic flame.
West shares children North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2 with the reality TV star.
