Kanye West reignites feud with Drake, lashes out at him for following wife Kim Kardashian on Instagram

It wasn't too surprising though since the KKW Beauty mogul is currently the sixth most followed person on Instagram with 123.5 million followers


                            Kanye West reignites feud with Drake, lashes out at him for following wife Kim Kardashian on Instagram

Kanye West was enraged on Saturday Morning when he learned that his arch nemesis Drake followed his wife Kim Kardashian on Instagram in September. The 41-year-old rapper took to Twitter to talk about his grievances, but later deleted his rants all too quickly.

Kanye's rants began with a screenshot of a Life & Style article that reported three months ago that Drake had started to follow Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian West, on Instagram. "I never knew till this morning that Drake followed my wife on Instagram back in September," Kanye tweeted along with the screen grab.

He continued, "I had to bring this up because it's the most f***ed up thing of all and I just saw it this morning. Imagine having a problem with somebody and they follow your wife on Instagram." It wasn't too surprising though since the KKW Beauty mogul is currently the sixth most followed person on Instagram with 123.5 million followers.

The tweets from Kanye may sound innocent at best, but when Drake started to follow his wife on Instagram, the two rappers were in the middle of a nasty feud.

It all stemmed from Drake's popular song 'In My Feelings', where an internet conspiracy claimed that the lyrics 'Kiki, do you love me?' allude to an alleged affair between the Kardashian beauty and the rapper.

At the time, Kim quickly shut down all the rumors from her side, posting "Never happened. End of story" on social media. As for now, Drake no longer follows the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star on Instagram anymore.

Kanye's disappointment with Drake, however, did not last too long, for, within an hour, the rapper deleted his rant tweets and replaced them with positive and uplifting messages like "love everyone" and "all positive vibes."

Both Kanye and the Canadian rapper have had their share of differences even outside of the one involving Kim. It was recently reported that Drake had "beefed up" his security in Los Angeles since Kanye lives in the same neighborhood.

A previous Twitter rant by the 'I Am A God' rapper seemed to be the reason Drake was prompted to seek additional protection. In December, Kanye wrote a series of tweets where he alleged that threats against him and his family were made by Drake. Kanye claimed, "Drake called trying to threatened [sic] me." He wrote: "So drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect So cut the tough talk."
