Kim Kardashian Defends Kanye West in Feud With Drake
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star defended Kanye West on Twitter amid a series of tweets from the rapper, accusing Drake of threatening him and his family. Kardashian, 38, warned the "God's Plan" rapper not to "threaten" West of her family, adding that he's the reason there is a Drake.
"@drake Never threaten my husband or our family. He paved the way for there to be a Drake," she tweeted.
Kardashian returned to Twitter shortly after her initial tweet, this time to praise West. She called the 41-year-old "the most brilliant person" and a "genius," among other things, adding that he has, and will continue to, break down barriers.
"My husband is the most brilliant person, the most genius person that I know. He has broken so many boundaries, everything from music, stage design, fashion and culture and will continue to change the world," Kardashian tweeted.
Her defense of West came after he accused Drake, 32, of taunting him, "Sending purple emojis When I'm dealing with mental s---." West added that in addition to bullying him and threatening "the safety of me and my family," Drake "tried to hurt my pockets."
Drake hasn't directly responded to the drama, but did post an Instagram Story of laughing-while-crying emojis only.
