It’s time to move on, Kanye West! The 40-year-old rapper is reportedly upset over ex-friend JAY-Z‘s disses recently, and wife Kim Kardashian is worried that they may set him off on another downward spiral.
A source told Hollywood Life that the mother-of-two “is urging Kanye to not let his nemesis rile him up. She thinks that’s exactly what he wants — to goad Kanye into coming out with some crazy rant. Kim’s trying to persuade Kanye to see the big picture and not sweat the small stuff.” They added, “As far as she’s concerned, Kanye needs to focus on the Tidal dispute, and hit JAY where it really hurts — financially and professionally.”

In a candid hour-long Tidal interview, Jay sat down with Rap Radar‘s Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller and opened up about his alleged feud with Kanye, which was detailed in the lyrics of 4:44’s “Kill Jay Z.” In the song, he raps, “You walkin’ around like you invincible. You dropped outta school, you lost your principles. I know people backstab you, I feel bad, too. But this ‘f–k everybody’ attitude ain’t natural. But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe. But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye.”
JAY-Z revealed, “It’s not even about Kanye, it really isn’t,” he said of the track. “His name is there, just because it’s just the truth of what happened. But the whole point is ‘You got hurt because this person was talking about you on a stage.’ But what really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kids and my wife into it. Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me 100 times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. And he knows it’s a problem.” He added, “He knows that he crossed the line. I know him. He knows. I know he knows, because we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements, and we’ve had many, because that’s who we are. That’s what I like about him. He’s an honest person, he’s open, and he’ll say things and he’s wrong a lot of times and he’ll confront it.”
Yet because of this, Kim is afraid for Kanye’s health. Last year, her hubby canceled his Saint Pablo world tour in the midst of allegations he was showing symptoms of psychosis. Now, she feels he’s headed for another breakdown. Only time will tell — but seriously, can they please just make up already?!
