Kanye West Posted A Private Text From Pete Davidson And Vowed That He’ll “Never Meet” His And Kim Kardashian’s Children Before Urging Fans To Yell “Kimye Forever” At Him If They See Him In Public

“THERES A SKETE LURKING IN EVERY DIRTY ASS ALLEY WAITING TO HELP DESTROY YOUR FAMILY.”

Over the weekend, Kanye West (who legally changed his name to Ye) shared a series of posts taking aim at Pete Davidson, boyfriend of his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian.

If you needed a quick refresher, Kim filed for divorce from Ye a year ago citing “irreconcilable differences.” The pair — who share four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm — remained fairly amicable as co-parents in the initial wake of the split.

Months down the line, however, Ye began making a bunch of grand declarations in a bid to reconcile his and Kim’s relationship, which included asking her to “run right back” to him onstage at a concert in December.

Following his unsuccessful attempts to win her back, Ye has recently called Kim out with a series of public statements —which started around the time she was first linked to Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson in late October.

In fact, Ye first expressed his disapproval of Kim’s new relationship in an appearance on the Drink Champs podcast in November, where he continually insisted that she’s “still [his] wife” and claimed he’d “never even seen” any of their divorce papers.

And speaking candidly with Hollywood Unlocked in January, the rapper aired his grievances once again — this time referencing Pete more specifically.

Referring to Kim’s SNL hosting debut in October — during which she kissed Pete onstage in an Aladdin sketch while Ye watched from the crowd — the Donda artist questioned: “How you gonna bring me to SNL and kiss the dude you dating right in front of me?”

What’s more, Ye publicly dissed Pete — by name — for the first time that same month. In his song “Eazy,” Ye raps: “God saved me from this crash / Just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s ass.” He seemingly went on to suggest that Pete should “thank” him for letting him “have” Kim in a song released just last week, titled “City of Gods.”

But it wasn’t until this weekend that Ye publicly spoke out against Pete at length, with a series of brutal Instagram posts shared — and swiftly deleted — to his page.

Ye firstly shared a post on Saturday letting fans know that fellow artist Kid Cudi was no longer set to feature on his upcoming album Donda 2, because “he’s friends with you know who.” Ye also tagged Kim in the post, as well as Pete’s SNL costar, Michael Che.

“Just so everyone knows Cudi will not be on Donda because he’s friends with you know who,” Ye’s message read.

“We all speak in Billie language now,” he added, referring to singer Billie Eilish, following a public spat they had last week. After Ye perceived an indirect comment she made to be about Travis Scott and the Astroworld tragedy, he called her out on Instagram and demanded that she apologize.

Between the public friendship that Cudi and Pete share, as well as Ye’s evident dislike of SNL star, fans quickly guessed that the cryptic post was about Pete Davidson.

And Ye quickly confirmed that this was in fact the case, sharing another post that highlighted Pete directly.

Ye shared an internet-famous throwback photo of himself, Kid Cudi, and Pete Davidson (as well as Timothée Chalamet) out at dinner in 2019 — with a large red cross added over Pete’s face.

“I JUST WANTED MY FRIEND TO HAVE MY BACK,” wrote Ye alongside the post. “THE KNIFE JUST GOES IN DEEPER.”

Over the following hours, Ye appeared to make light of the feud with several fan-edited memes reposted to his Instagram. One depicted a Captain America: Civil War–style “Team Ye” versus “Team Pete” setup, while another strictly divided the rapper from both Cudi and Pete.

“THE INTERNET HAS STILL NOT FOUND A DECENT PICTURE OF SKETE,” wrote Ye alongside one post — which marked the beginning of his many references to Kim’s boyfriend as “Skete.”

Elaborating further shortly afterward, Ye explained that he was hurt by Cudi seemingly siding with Pete by remaining friends with him amid their public dispute.

After explaining his current stance with Cudi, however — which resulted in a whole different feud — Ye went on to drag Pete alone in a bunch of posts.

Sharing a cropped paparazzi image of Pete holding hands with Kim, Ye wrote: “LOOK AT THIS DICKHEAD I WONDER IF INSTAGRAM GONNA SHUT DOWN MY PAGE FOR DISSING HILARY CLINTON’S EX BOYFRIEND.”

After telling fans to “GOOGLE THE HILLARY THING,” Ye shared a photo of Pete’s infamous Hillary Clinton tattoo, while falsely claiming that the two were once in a relationship.

But in spite of all this, things only got messier after Ye publicly shared a message he’d received from Pete.

Posting a picture taken of a phone with the text partially onscreen, the rapper aired the private words — which saw Pete seemingly attempting to reassure Ye that he wasn't getting involved with his and Kim's children — out to the world.

“I’d never get [in the] way of your children,” the text from Pete appears to read.

“[That’s] a promise. How you guys [go about] raising your kids is [your business] and not mine,” the message continues.

“I do [hope one] day I can meet them and [we can] all be friends,” it finishes.

Evidently unhappy with the gesture, Ye — who also shared a photo of Pete and Machine Gun Kelly in Calvin Klein underwear from a memorable Instagram livestream in December — wrote in the caption: “NO YOU WILL NEVER MEET MY CHILDREN.”

Ye then shared a handful of other posts aimed at Pete, calling him “garbage” and “trash.” He even rehashed a false rumor that Pete once sent late rapper Mac Miller intimate photos of himself and Ariana Grande, in a bid to prevent them from getting back together.

Before long, Ye — who clarified that his Instagram account was “not hacked” after fans became concerned — went on to offer to pay Michael Che “double” his earnings from SNL purely to avoid working with Pete.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Ye’s Instagram activity left his name trending first worldwide on Twitter — even above the #SuperBowl, which dominates social media each year.

Addressing the attention, Ye wrote in another post: “I DIDN’T WAKE UP AND FIGHT FOR MY FAMILY TO TREND OVER THE SUPER BOWL.”

“FOR EVERYONE MARRIED HOLD YOUR SPOUSE CLOSE,” he went on. “MAKE SURE THEY KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE AND APPRECIATE THEM BECAUSE THERES A SKETE LURKING IN EVERY DIRTY ASS ALLEY WAITING TO HELP DESTROY YOUR FAMILY.”

Going on to accuse Pete of walking around “in Calvin Kleins” around his children, Ye ultimately expressed his desire to be reunited with Kim.

“I WISH MY WIFE WAS WITH ME AND OUR CHILDREN SITTING AT THE 50 YARD LINE @kimkardashian ALWAYS REMEMBER WEST WAS YOUR BIGGEST W,” he wrote.

Doubling down on his comments the following day, Ye shared a post maintaining that he loves Kim, and ultimately has “faith” that the two will “be back together.”

“I DON’T HAVE BEEF WITH KIM,” wrote Ye on Feb. 14. “I LOVE MY FAMILY SO STOP THAT NARRATIVE IM NOT GIVING UP ON MY FAMILY.”

“I HAVE FAITH THAT WE'LL BE BACK TOGETHER,” he went on.

“WE HAVE A PUBLIC RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE WE ARE PUBLIC FIGURES SO TO THE PUBLIC AND TO THE PRESS SOMETIMES PEOPLE CALL ME CRAZY BUT TO BE IN LOVE IS TO BE CRAZY ABOUT SOMETHING AND I AM CRAZY ABOUT MY FAMILY,” he added.

Moments later, Ye shared another post, writing: “MY FAMILY MEANS MORE TO ME THAN MY OTHER ACCOMPLISHMENTS,” before referring to Pete as “Skete” once again.

“IF YOU SEE SKETE IN REAL LIFE SCREAM AT YHE LOOSER AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS AND SAY KIMYE FOREVER,” he wrote, alongside a broken heart emoji.

Kim hasn’t responded to Ye’s string of public messages, but she was pictured out with Pete in New York enjoying a dinner date on Feb. 12, ahead of Valentine’s Day.

The pair were photographed holding hands and laughing as they stopped by the Brooklyn restaurant Lilia for the evening.

Just last week, Pete revealed that he was excited about spending Valentine’s Day with Kim in a rare interview dishing about their relationship.

Speaking with People on Feb. 7, Pete said: “I don’t think I’ve ever had a Valentine’s Day thing, really, so this would be the first year that I’m thinking about Valentine’s Day plans, I guess.”

People

Host Kay Adams quickly asked, “So you are thinking about Valentine’s Day plans?” to which Pete responded, “Very much so, yes… It’s a big day.”

People

In the same interview, Pete surprised viewers with a rare public reference to Kim as his “girlfriend” for the first time.

Speaking about what he does in his spare time, Pete said: “If I'm off [work], I just either hang with my friends or chill with my girlfriend inside,” making reference to Kim — whose face could noticeably be seen on a prayer candle that was ~conveniently placed~ in the background of the shot.

Quickly calling the candle into question, Kay asked: “Is that a Kardashian candle on your other shoulder?”

People

Grinning widely in response, Pete said: “Yes, yes, it is. That is…uh… That is exactly what that is.”
