Kanye West has been outspoken in his criticism of the Kardashian/Jenner family since his divorce from Kim last year. Fans expected another rant when he changed his Instagram profile photo to one of the reality TV show family’s matriarch.
However, the multihyphenate wishes to “change the narrative” about his ex-wife. It’s unclear if Ye was aware of the speculation surrounding his recently updated profile picture, but he took to Instagram Stories to explain the move.
“I posted Kris with thoughts of peace and respect,” Ye wrote on Wednesday evening (Sept. 28), before adding, “let’s change the narrative.”
Kanye returned to Instagram earlier this month after a brief absence with rants against Kim Kardashian in between feuding with Yeezy partners, Gap and Adidas.
He revealed apparent text messages between him and Kim, including one said to be from Kris, in which he asked him to quit.
“Don’t let Kris make you do playboys like she made Kyle [sic] and Kim do,” Kanye penned. “Hollywood is a giant brothel pornography destroyed my family I deal with the addiction Instagram promises it.”
He added, “Not gonna let it happen to North and Chicago.”
Kanye West also shared a message said to be from Kris Jenner. “Tell him to please stop mentioning my name. I’m almost 67 years old and I don’t always feel great and this stresses me to no end,” it read.
Meanwhile, Ye has hired a new lawyer to represent him in his sixth divorce from Kim. He hired well-known celebrity lawyer Robert Stephan Cohen. He has previously represented Chris Rock, Rupert Murdoch, and Melinda Gates in her divorce from Bill Gates.
