Reality TV star Kim Kardashian low-key had no idea Kanye West would turn into a trending topic for the worst reason last week. New reports claim Yeezy’s better half did not know he would go on a now-infamous slavery rant at the TMZ offices.
According to reports, Kim K believes Ye could have made his point more clear if he planned it out ahead of time.
A source told Us Weekly that Kardashian, 37, wasn’t aware that the rapper was going to be on the show, and that she found out just as the rest of the country found out. “Kim was really upset that Kanye chose to have a very serious discussion in a place like that,” a source tells Us. “And because she wasn’t given a heads up about it beforehand.” “Kanye shared a lot of his passionate words, which was important to him but had they been said in a different setting and time, they would have come across in a different way,” the insider added. “A lot of things he said were very serious. If he had said them in different, more planned out way it would be a different story, even positive.” (Us Magazine)
Over the weekend, music icon Stevie Wonder called Ye’s words nothing less than foolishness.
“You know what? Honestly, if you know your history, you know that’s not true,. If you know the truth, you don’t listen to foolishness.” (TMZ)
A few days ago, West Coast rapper Game said he would remain Ye’s friend despite his slavery views.
“Notice that a week ago the world was silent about Kanye. Now the entire world is in uproar over things he has said or done for the world to see,” The Game told Billboard via email. “Don’t think for a minute that his actions and plan weren’t well thought out and set up for his goal to reach his maximum potential. Kanye will always be a friend of mine & although I might not necessarily agree with his views on certain topics, that is what separate us as individuals.” (Billboard)
Despite Game’s positive approach, fellow hip-hop veteran Eve recently said she couldn’t support Yeezy anymore.
“You want to be a free-thinker, you want to be thought-provoking, you cannot have these ideas without facts to back them up. Slavery is a fact. Slavery is part of our history… we cannot forget it – we are still feeling the effects of slavery within our community, within our culture. It hurts me. … This is a man that I actually used to listen to, this is a person that we used to look to as an artist. Any young brothers looking at me, listening to me today – pick up some Nas, pick up Damian Marley, pick up some J. Cole, pick up some Kendrick Lamar. Listen to these artists. I am done with Kanye.” (The Talk)
