It looks like JAY-Z‘s recent truth bombs about Kanye West have left Kim Kardashian stressed beyond belief! According to a new report, the reality star is worried that the father-of-three’s candid comments about his former BFF will make her husband say something he’ll regret.
“[Kim] is urging Kanye to not let his nemesis rile him up,” a source tells Hollywood Life. “She thinks that’s exactly what [JAY] 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. 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 recent interview, JAY-Z revealed that Yeezy had “crossed the line” when he ranted about the 47-year-old and his family during a stop on his Saint Pablo tour in 2016. “You got hurt because this guy was talking about you on a stage. But what really hurt me, you can’t bring my kid or my wife into it,” the “Empire State of Mind” hitmaker admitted. “Like, Kanye is my little brother. He’s talked about me a hundred times. He even made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem.”
The duo is currently quarreling over money as well, with sources telling Life & Style that Kanye claims JAY’s subscription-based music streaming service Tidal owes him $3 million for bringing in 1.5 million new subscribers with his album, The Life of Pablo. “Kanye believes he’s owed by Tidal and he will fight for it,” a source shares. “There’s no salvaging the friendship, so Kanye’s going full force.”
In his song “Kill Jay Z”, the business mogul claims he already gave the fashion designer $20 million after he announced that he’s allegedly $53 million in debt. Don’t hold your breath for a reconciliation anytime soon. In the meantime, scroll through the gallery below for a look back at Kim and Kanye’s most cringe-worthy moments!
