Kanye West has taken to social media to mourn the fake death of his adversary and ex-boyfriend to his former wife, Pete Davidson. The weird but long-awaited reaction from Kanye is a result of Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian’s recent break-up. The Yeezy mogul didn’t directly call Pete’s name, but it’s clear who the shade is aimed at.
Kanye West Mourns Pete Davidson’s Fake Death After Split From Kim Kardashian
Kanye West mourned Pete Davidson’s fake death by sharing an altered New York Times front page on his Instagram. He referred to Pete as “Skete” in his public feud against the comedian. The doctored front page by Kanye stated:
“SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28.”
Two birds were killed with a “post” by Kanye as Kid Cudi wasn’t left out of the rapper’s subtle wrath. At the base of the edited New York Times front page shared by the Atlanta-born rapper, he made a joke about Cudi leaving the stage of the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami. Cudi, during the festival, had fans hauling objects at him on stage. The situation caused him to leave the stage angrily, and the crowd went crazy immediately after Kanye was called up. The Award-winning rapper didn’t add any caption to the post, and it’s the only one on his Instagram currently. Many people believe that Kanye West’s mourning of Davidson’s death is a result of jealousy.
Kanye West’s Music Video on Pete’s Death
This isn’t the first time that Kanye West will mourn Davidson’s fake death. In Kanye’s “Eazy” second music video, Pete Davidson was “buried alive.” An actor was also spotted wearing a “Skete” hoodie in the video. The video dropped on March 2 this year, and that’s way before the split between Davidson, 28, and Kim, 41.
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson started dating following her divorce from her ex-husband, Kanye. However, the relationship between Pete and Kim came to a halt some days ago, but they are willing to remain friends.
A source revealed that the former couple still has much love and respect for each other. However, the long-distance and demanding schedules made it tedious for them to keep the relationship going. The comedian and actor’s schedule causes him to travel a lot every now and then. While Kim, a mother of four, needs to focus on her kids. Since Kanye West has been mourning the death of Davidson, the comedian is yet to react publicly.
