Surprise, surprise – Kanye West was thrilled to hear ex-Kim Kardashian had called things off with Pete Davidson.

And in typical Ye fashion, his celebration of the split was a little over the top, with the rapper sharing (and then deleting) a controversial image to mark the occasion.

Just days after news broke that Kardashian and Davidson had gone separate ways, West shared a photoshopped New York Times front cover that read, “SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28.”

He also took a dig at former collaborator Kid Cudi, who he seemingly disowned due to the rapper’s friendship with Davidson.

The bottom of the photoshopped paper featured, “Kid Cudi meant to play funeral but fearful of bottle throwers.” – a reference to an incident last month where Cudi stormed off stage at Rolling Loud Festival after having bottles thrown at him.

It’s reported that West deleted the post after Kardashian stepped in.

The feud between West and Davidson has been consistent over the past nine months, with West refusing to conceal his dislike for the comedian in the slightest.

Back in March, West dropped Easy with The Game, and its music video featured a character with a strong resemblance to Davidson who was kidnapped and buried.

The same month, the comedian had friend and frequent collaborator Dave Sirus post a series of lengthy text message exchanges between West and Davidson. 

The exchange opened with, “I’ve decided I’m not gonna let you treat us like this anymore and I’m done being quiet. Grow the fuck up.”

West responded, asking Davidson where he was and he replied with, "In bed with your wife,” alongside a selfie.

Back in May, Davidson addressed the online barrage during his Netflix Is A Joke: The Festival performance.
