In an attempt to seemingly stir the pot with fans, Kanye West declared his love for anti-Black Lives Matter commentator Candace Owens on Twitter. However, along with upsetting his followers, it seems Kanye’s comments also upset his wife, Kim Kardashian.
“Kanye’s obsessed with Candace Owens and it’s literally driving Kim insane,” a source told In Touch exclusively. “He’s constantly admiring her, saying how smart, talented, brave, and unafraid she is. He wants North [West] to be a strong and educated woman just like Candace.”
Kim is also worried the rapper wants to get too close to the conservative YouTuber. “He raves about Candace in front of Kim and that infuriates the hell out of her and makes her wonder if Kanye wants to be more than just friends with this girl,” the insider added. “Kanye’s interest and admiration for this woman is getting out of hand and Kim is extremely insecure about it.”

On April 21, Kanye revealed he loved “the way Candace Owens thinks” on Twitter, prompting Candace, 28, to return the favor on the social media platform. “I’m freaking out. @kanyewest… please take a meeting with me,” she wrote. “I tell every single person that everything that I have been inspired to do, was written in your music. I am my own biggest fan, because you made it okay. I need you to help wake up the black community.”
More recently, Candace supported Kanye’s endorsement of President Donald Trump on Fox News. “The one thing [Kanye] advocates most for in his music is independence,” she explained, before adding that Yeezy and Trump’s friendship marks the “beginning of what is going to be a very interesting time in black America.” On the other hand, Kim is not a fan of Kanye’s public support of the POTUS — and is against the hip-hop star’s hope to make Trump their daughter Chicago’s godfather.
“She despises Trump and doesn’t like what he stands for and is telling Kanye that he needs to choose somebody else. Kanye’s adamant that he wants to ask Trump and it’s resulted in them having a huge blowout argument,” a source told In Touch. “Trump is a huge no-no for Kim but Kanye’s really a huge fan and supporter of his and that’s a bone of contention in their marriage.”
