It seems like Kanye West‘s latest controversial rants have put even more strain on his relationship with Kim Kardashian and her family. Ye supported Donald Trump once again on Saturday Night Live on Sept. 29, and on Oct. 1 he doubled down with another wild rant on national television.
Kanye did another shocking new interview, and this time he said he was taking his kids to Africa to continue working on his upcoming album Yandhi, called himself “a god” and “an alien,” and said he’s trying to convince Colin Kaepernick to go visit Trump in the White House. This comes after he called to repeal the 13th amendment (which abolished slavery) on Twitter following his SNL appearance, where he wore a Make America Great Again hat.
this represents good and America becoming whole again. We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th amendment. Message sent with love pic.twitter.com/a15WqI8zgu

Now, SNL sources say that he won’t be invited back to the show. OK! reports that he’s banned for “a long time,” not because of his words or style choices, but because he claims members of production “bullied him” backstage over the hat. While his wife Kim supported him backstage at the taping, and even proudly snapped his performances, behind the scenes it seems she wasn’t as happy.
“She thinks he’s lost his mind again,” a source told Radar, adding that Kim wants Kanye to come home to LA, not stay in Chicago and certainly not Africa. “Kim doesn’t want Kanye to be alone anymore, because she believes he’s not taking care of himself.”
Kim’s not the only one who’s freaking out. Momager Kris is reaching her wit’s end with Yeezy’s rants. “It is getting to be way too much for Kris to tolerate,” said the insider. “She does not know what to do at this point.” While she’s “livid” over the situation, she’s also afraid “something bad will happen” to the father of her grandchildren.
Still, the Kardashians have stood by Kanye throughout similar public controversies, like calling slavery “a choice,” the last time he was on live TV, and his brutal breakdown in 2016. Only time will tell if this is the last straw for the superstar family.
