It almost looks like Kanye 'Ye' West loyalists are running a campaign on the Internet, rallying for their icon and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian to find their way back to each other. Ye has been making all the efforts to reunite with his billionaire wife and on Friday, Kim K made a move that further diminished the chances of the richest Black man in America finding success in what seems to be his number one goal currently.  "Kanye really spilled his heart on stage for you @KimKardashian and this is the thanks he gets he said run back not run further goes to show you no matter what you do everything is never enough just hear him out Kim don’t be mean," a Twitter fan said after Kim K filed to be legally single and that her maiden name be restored.

A night prior to the filing, Ye performed his 2010 hit 'Runaway' at the Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert alongside Drake. Kim K was present in the audience along with their eldest North. She was joined by Kris Jenner, remember when the rapper called her Kris Jong Un? Corey Gamble, Lizzo, Machine Gun Kelly, Megan Fox, Tyler the Creator, Offset, Chance the Rapper, and G-Eazy added star power to the concert held at LA Memorial Coliseum. All of them and the rest of the audience witnessed Ye tweak the lyrics of his hit, as he rapped, "I need you to run right back to me, more specifically, Kimberly."

The concert was just another opportunity for Ye to beg Kim K for a reunion. She reportedly filed for divorce in February but the rapper insists he hasn't even seen the papers yet and continues to talk about Kim as his wife in multiple interviews. During a recent podcast appearance, Kanye placed blame on the people Kim associates with. "My kids want their parents to stay together. I want us to be together," he insisted. "But if you look at the media, that's not what they're promoting. They want it to be a new wedding, a new episode, a new TV show. And then they have people all around in my wife's ear." While Kanye seems hung up, Kim Kardashian is reportedly exploring a romantic relationship with 'SNL' alum Pete Davidson.
