After firing a string of scathing social media attacks aimed at his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her current Pete Davidson, Kanye West is now claiming that Kardashian can't prove he penned them himself.
A verified Instagram account belonging to the rapper, 44, has published and since-deleted multiple public pleas for Kim to come back to him.
Other posts targeted her current boyfriend, as well as private conversations between the two co-parents. The account has also claimed one of the rapper's children, North, was using TikTok without his permission.[[imagecaption|| Credit: Instagram/@kanyewest]]
Last week, Kim asked that a judge sign off on her divorce from Kanye because he failed to keep details of their divorce and family matters "private" and, as a result, has caused her "emotional distress".
In court documents viewed by TMZ, the mom-of-four said: "I very much desire to be divorced," and referenced the "misinformation" that the rapper, 44, has been spreading via his social media platforms.
"I have asked Kanye to keep our divorce private, but he has not done so," Kardashian wrote, per Billboard. "Kanye has been putting a lot of misinformation regarding our private family matters and co-parenting on social media which has created emotional distress."[[imagecaption|| Kardashian and West in 2020.

"I believe that the Court terminating our marital status will help Kanye to accept that our marital relationship is over and to move forward on a better path which will assist us in peacefully co-parenting our children," the reality TV star added.
On Friday, Kanye filed court docs to dispute Kim's claim that he’s been spreading misinformation regarding their relationship on social media, calling her claims "double hearsay."
According to his lawyer, it can't be proven that West actually wrote those posts and because of this, they should not be admissible. At the time of the attacks, Kanye even posted a photo of himself holding up a piece of paper that read: "My account is not hacked," alongside the date "2/13/22".[[imagecaption|| Credit: Instagram/@kimkardashian]]
"Kim claims she read something online allegedly by Kanye and characterizes the posts in her declaration as misinformation," the rapper's lawyer said in court documents. "The social media posts are not attached to the declaration."
"Kim needed to offer the social media posts into evidence, and show that the posts were written by Kanye. Had that been done, the posts would be admissible as statements of a party opponent. Instead, Kim argues a point that is not in the record."
The rapper previously shared texts he'd received from Kim, which said West was "creating a dangerous and scary environment and someone will hurt Pete and this will be all your fault," later saying: "There are dangerous people out there and this is scary and it doesn't have to be."
