Rapper Kanye West appeared to admit in a now-deleted Instagram post this week that an addiction to pornography ruined his family with Kim Kardashian.
West’s remarks on social media were about where his four kids with ex-wife Kim Kardashian — North West, Saint West, Chicago West (born via surrogate), and Psalm West (born via surrogate) — would attend school.
“Come and get me, I’m a man of God,” West wrote. “The father’s job is to be the bad guy some times.”
“I was driven crazy before. I’m not going crazy no more,” he continued. “It’s not up to Calabasas or Hulu where my kids go to school. I’m not the crazy one here.”
“I won’t stop until I have a say so on my kids, no matter what it legally takes,” he added.
Kanye West said in other posts that he knows women who work in adult industries who apparently have a problem with how his daughters are dressed.
Kanye West then called out Kim Kardashian’s mother, Kris Kardashian, for how she raised her daughters.
“Don’t let Kris make you do playboy like she made [Kylie] and Kim do,” West wrote. “Hollywood is a giant brothel. Pornography destroyed my family. I deal with the addiction. Instagram promotes it. Not gonna let it happen to Northy and Chicago.”
Kim Kardashian said in an interview last year that she regretted posing nude for Playboy and that she would warn her younger self to not be so trusting of others.
Kanye West continued by posting screenshots apparently from the Kardashian family asking him to stop posting on Instagram because it was causing them stress.
In one screenshot of a text message exchange with a person who appeared to be Kim Kardashian, West said of his children, “They will not do playboy and sex tapes.”
“Tell your Clinton friends to come get me,” West continued. “I’m here.”
West also made news last week after he questioned the validity of the holiday Kwanzaa.
Kwanzaa was created by black activist Maulana Karenga in 1966; in 1971 he was convicted of felonious assault and false imprisonment. He currently serves as chairman of the Africana Studies Department at California State University, Long Beach. The Kwanzaa festival is observed starting the day after Christmas for 7 days and involves celebrating seven Swahili values; a candle is lit each day on a candleholder.
“They teach black kids Kwanzaa at Sierra Canyon,” West wrote, referring to a private school in Chatsworth. “What the f*** is Kwanzaa and who made that bulls*** up?” West wrote in an Instagram post. “Everyone lives in LA for the check anyway so no one really cares about their children being indoctrinated.”
