Kanye West celebrates Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s split with former SNL comedian ‘Obit’
KanyeWest takes a solemn but somber approach to the news that his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and SNL alum Pete Davidson have split after just nine months of dating.
Early Monday morning, Aug. 8, the Grammy Award-winning rapper took to his Instagram account, where he posted a photo of a digitally altered New York Times front page with the caption, “SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28.”
The no-captioned post, which garnered over 1.8 million likes in the three hours since Yes uploaded it, also targeted Kid Cudi, the “Prison” host’s former sidekick and frequent collaborator, with a sub-caption that read, “Kid Cudi wanted to play funeral but was scared of throwing bottles,” a dig at the “Day ‘n’ Nite” rapper, who walked offstage at Miami’s Rolling Loud festival last month after fans threw objects at him onstage .
While some social media fans found the photo humorous, including one fan who seemingly captioned the post as “The man just wants his family back.”
However, not everyone laughed. Many people in the comments section urged the Chicago native to end the feud, including one Instagram user who wrote, “They have four children. Isn’t it time you stopped being one?” Another person commented, “You’re 45 years old. Please pick up your Lexapro and sign off for the day baby.”
A third declared Ye “embarrassing!” They added: “Stop this nonsense and focus on your craft and your kids! This boy is 28! If you want to troll someone, troll yourself for marrying that plastic and meddling in that circle of a family. As a fan, I hate this for you. Grow up!”
Still, this isn’t the first time Yes has faked the veteran comedian’s death. Last March, the emcee of Jesus Walks buried an animated version of Pete alive when he rapped about beating up the actor in his visual for Eazy.
Kim and Pete began dating last fall after she filed for divorce from Ye in February 2021. The former couple have been married for seven years and have four children together: North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3. Divorce proceedings were postponed again after the rapper’s fifth attorney, Samantha Spector, told the producer citing an irretrievably broken relationship. However, she declined to pursue the matter further.
