Kim Kardashian Hits Back At Rhymefest To Defend Kanye West Over These Donda’s House Claims
Kanye and Rhymefest founded non-profit organisation Donda's House together.
Nothing like a quiet, drama-free weekend, right?
These 6 celebs got seriously savage revenge on their ex...
The two artists founded the non-profit foundation Donda’s House in honour of Kanye’s late mother in 2011, with the aim of supporting youth in Chicago.
However, Rhymefest - real name Che Smith - has now claimed that Kanye has ‘abandoned’ the organisation, and that they’ve been unable to ‘secure his financial support’ for their projects.
According to Rolling Stone, the foundation released a statement addressing the situation - and, seemingly, Kanye's support for Donald Trump - writing: “While we cannot and do not speak for Kanye West and his views, we can and will speak up for the youth that we serve.
“We ask that those who feel hurt, angered by or frustrated with Kanye West not penalize or throw away their support, respect and advocacy for us.
"We ask that as you boycott and protest Kanye West, that you not forget that we are a non-profit organization that like other non-profits needs donations, corporate support and volunteers. We do not want your rejection of Kanye West, to be a rejection of Dr. Donda West and the thousands of lives she impacted including her own son.”
They continued: “We have been unable to secure the financial support of Kanye despite multiple attempts, and despite those early conversations about his plan of support and advocacy for the youth in our programs.”
Rhymefest also tweeted about the issues, reaching out to Drake for support: “I’m asking @Drake to help the part of Chicago Kanye has Abandoned! Please contact @DondasHouse”.
Whilst Kanye has yet to personally respond to the accusations, Kim has written a series of tweets in his defence, telling Rhymefest: “U haven’t been right since u got kicked out of the studio in Hawaii wearing fake Yeezy’s @RHYMEFEST You’re over levergenging Kanye’s name & asked Kanye to donate money to u so stop w your fake community politics & lies. Truth is you haven’t been able to sustain the foundation (sic).
“I saw you at our studio a few weeks ago so why didn’t you bring this up then @RHYMEFEST ? You were trying to get Kanye to listen to your sub par beats. You have the audacity to use Kanye’s mom name to try to shead a negative light on Kanye. (sic)”
She added: “You better believe I will make it my mission to take Donda’s House from you and let my children run it the way it should be run! @RHYMEFEST”.
Rhymefest has since replied, telling Kim in a statement that they will welcome the decision to dissolve the organisation for Kim and Kanye to run it themselves:
Donda’s House then also released a statement explaining that they will no longer use the name Donda’s House Inc.
