According to Kanye West, he wants to alter this narrative. The Yeezy designer revealed the surprising reason he changed his Instagram profile photo to a picture of his ex-mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, which he has previously criticized social media.
The 45-year-old “Flashing Lights” musician posted on his Stories on September 28: “I Posted Kris with Thoughts of Peace and Respect.” Change the narrative, I say.
Ye’s profile change and explanation follow his allegations that the 66-year-old Kardashian-Jenner matriarch coerced her ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her youngest sister Kylie Jenner into taking part in Playboy picture shoots.
Don’t let Kris force you to do Playboy like she made Kylie and Kim do, the rapper said in the caption of a photo of Victoria Villarroel, a close friend of Kylie’s, posted on September 1. Hollywood is an enormous brothel. The porn industry wrecked my family. Instagram encourages addiction, which I manage. I won’t allow that to happen to North York and Chicago.
Kris pleaded with West to take her identity off of his social media, according to leaked texts that West released at the time on Instagram.
The Californian allegedly texted the author of Selfish to tell him to cease mentioning his name. “I’m getting close to 67 years old, and I don’t always feel well. This stresses me out beyond belief.”
With the 41-year-old Skims designer, West has children together: North, 9, Chicago, 4, Saint, 6, and Psalm, 3. West has always been open about his changing feelings with the Safely cofounder.
In February, the “Famous” rapper, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2016, posted on Instagram, “I adore Kris,” while also criticizing her longtime boyfriend, Corey Gamble, and claiming that he had cheated on her.
“This woman is a hero and she did what she had to do to protect her family and make sure they succeed even if it meant asking everyone not to listen to me I appreciate her grind her hustle and her mind Kris is one of the best to ever do it,” said the speaker.
The infamous tweet West sent in June 2020, where he referred to the Kardashians star as “Kris Jung-Un,” is a long cry from his adoration of Kris.
During Kim and West’s divorce, Kris served as the “peacemaker” between them. (The founder of KKW Beauty divorced the Grammy winner in February 2021 and was officially pronounced single a year later.)
In February, a source exclusively revealed to Us Weekly that “the other Kardashians are [supporting Kim] – they’re all there for each other.” The only person that is still in a relationship with Kanye is Kris. She always has, and she acts as the mediator when no one else will engage with the man.
After years of turbulence, West—who has publicly spat with both Kim and her ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson—opened up about his parenting difficulties with the former star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The “Gold Digger” singer admitted on September 22’s Good Morning America, “I do have a voice, but I had to work for it. Their father, I am. Coparenting is required. It isn’t just up to the woman. Men also have an option, for example. Men’s voices are crucial.
