Kanye west was caught on camera getting into a heated argument with a parent on the sidelines of his son Saint’s soccer game in Calabasas, Los Angeles this past weekend.
In the footage, West can be seen ranting and raving, wildly waving his arms about as he attempts to speak to another parent while the six-year-old’s game is in progress.
West could be seen gesticulating wildly before the conversation comes to an abrupt end and he storms off.
West, who now goes by Ye, shares custody over the children he had with his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
The rest of the family, daughters North, 9, Chicago, 4, and son Psalm, 3, were sat close by in lawn chairs.
None of them reacted as the 45-year-old controversial rapper appeared to vent his frustration. It was not clear exactly what it is West had been getting upset about.
Another woman said to be a family friend, then approached him – but he just stormed off.
Kardashian, 42, and West did not interact during their son’s game, although he was spotted chatting with his son.
While rocking an all-black Balenciaga ensemble and large shades, Kim was seen actively ignoring West after taking to her Instagram to publicly condemn hate speech and state that she stands with ‘the Jewish community’ and calls on ‘the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.’
Despite the stress of having to see the father of her four kids, with whom she also shares, the SKIMS founder put on a brave face and cheered for their little one during her outing.
She also took the opportunity to chat with another parent or pal, seated by her side.
Sports appear to have turned into a way for West to spend time with his children, and he has lately been spotted in the stands for Saint and his older daughter North’s basketball games.
Saturday’s outburst at the game is just the latest in a string from West who has been under fire recently for comments he made last month that were deemed to be anti-Semitic.
The rapper wrote in a tweet: ‘I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE. The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.’
The rapper’s Twitter account was later suspended.
West was asked by Piers Morgan last week if he regretted the tweet and he said, ‘No – absolutely not, absolutely not … I fought fire with fire – I’m not here to get hosed down – that’s a different type of freedom fighter.’
He later clarified: ‘I will say I’m sorry for the people that I hurt. I feel like I cause hurt and confusion, and I’m sorry for the families of the people that had nothing to do with the trauma that I had been through and that I use my platform where you say, “Hurt people hurt people,” and I was hurt.’
His comments saw him lose hundreds of millions of dollars in business deals and advertising partnerships including GAP, Balenciaga and Adidas, who were the manufacturer, and distributors of the rapper’s highly successful clothing line and Yeezy shoe brand. Banking giant JP Morgan Chase has also dropped him.
His total wealth plummeted as it fell from a reported $2 billion to around $500 million following Adidas severing ties with him.
While Kanye has been known to have unpredictable outbursts on social media – he was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder in 2016 – his rants have become more frequent this year.
On Friday night he went on a bizarre rant in front of gathered paparazzi in which he apologized for falsely claiming George Floyd died from the narcotic drug fentanyl rather than the reality which saw a Minneapolis police officer suffocating him by placing a knee on his neck for nine minutes.
West engaged with photographers for a lengthy conversation in which he also said he did not realize he was being anti-Semitic in earlier comments.
While West didn’t apologize while making his remarks, he did say that he had been ‘humbled’ with the furor costing him an estimated $1 billion in business deals.
West said he believes God has been humbling him for bragging often about his wealth – much of which he has lost due to suspended brand deals.
West has famously declined to take any mood-stabilizing drugs – despite his diagnosis.
He said that if a doctor were to mix up a pill of his, he could end up like Prince – who died by accidental fentanyl overdose – or Michael Jackson – who died of anesthesia poisoning.
