Kanye West returns to Instagram following divorce from Kim Kardashian

The rapper has been absent from the social media platform for over two years


Kanye West has returned to Instagram after over two years away from the app.

The rapper made his comeback to the social media platform on Wednesday ahead of his tenth studio album ‘Donda’ – which is set for release this Friday, July 23.

The 44-year-old shared a photo of a gold chain with his children’s names on it – North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

Kanye also shared a teaser of his new music in an advert featuring Sha’Carri Richardson.

The Chicago native has over 5.6million followers on the app, but he is only following one person – his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

Kim filed to divorce her husband on February 19, after almost seven years of marriage.

The former couple are requesting joint legal and physical custody of their four children.

Fans feared the couple were headed for a divorce last July, when Kanye spoke about almost aborting their daughter North during a presidential campaign rally in South Carolina.

Kanye said: “Even if my wife wants to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world even when I didn’t want to. She stood up and she protected that child.”

At the time, sources claimed Kim was “furious” that Kanye had “shared something so private.”

After the rally, the Yeezy founder posted a number of shocking statements on Twitter, and he even accused Kim of trying to get him “locked up”.

The rapper also claimed he’s been “trying to get divorced” from Kim ever since she met Meek Mill back in 2018 to discuss prison reform, and he also appeared to slam his mother-in-law Kris Jenner.


Kanye later deleted the tweets, and a few hours later Kim released a statement addressing her husband’s behaviour.

In the statement, the reality star opened up about her husband’s mental health – explaining how “incredibly complicated and painful” it can be to struggle with bipolar disorder.

The mother-of-four also asked the public to show their family “compassion” during such a difficult time.

Days later, Kanye posted a public apology to Kim on Twitter.

The couple then put on a united front by taking their kids on a “make or break” trip to the Dominican Republic.

But since then, their relationship has deteriorated, and Kim finally decided to file for divorce on February 19, 2021.

Kim and Kanye tied the knot back in 2014, and the couple share four kids – North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
