Kanye West is allegedly spreading unfounded rumours that Pete Davidson is gay and has AIDS.
What ever happened to Jesus?
Despite spending years developing a reputation as a devout Christian rapper who hosted Sunday Services and ceased cursing on his albums, Kanye West has turned a corner and is allegedly spreading unfounded rumours that Pete Davidson is gay and has AIDS, the NY Post reports.
The Yeezy designer first made his disdain for estranged wife Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend known when he threatened him in his new track “Eazy”, rapping, “God saved me from that crash / Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”
But now sources tell us that West, 44, has escalated this one-sided feud by spreading the rumours to anyone who will listen.
Our sources also alleged that West, who is very publicly dating actress Julia Fox, is telling people that Davidson, 28, is a junkie in addition to threatening that he’s going to have the Saturday Night Live star beaten up.
A source close to West, however, called the claims “nonsense,” while a source close to Davidson told us, “He’s ignoring all of the Kanye hate out of respect for Kim.”
Reps for West, Kardashian and Davidson didn’t immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.
Our info echoes DJ Akademiks’ comments on Twitch earlier this week in which he claimed West is “going crazy with himself”.
“A n***a told me, this is real talk, Kanye has been telling anyone within an earshot of himself, he’s trying to spread a rumour that Pete Davidson has AIDS. I’m telling you this is a fact. I’ve heard this from eight people. He’s telling everybody!”
The DJ added, “I’m telling you, this is a fact. Bruh, if you gotta spread a rumour that the n***a f***in’ your wife got AIDS, you burnt out, bro. Wrap it up. It’s over.”
Page Six previously reported that the King of Staten Island star found West’s lyrical threats “hilarious”, but it’s unclear how he’s feeling now.
Davidson and Kardashian, 41, started dating last fall, less than a year after she filed for divorce from West. The estranged couple share four children – North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.
TMZ was first to report the news.
