Kim Kardashian-West has responded after the parents of 5-year-old rapper Zaza accused the reality star's daughter, North West, of sampling her song while performing at her father's show in Paris, France on Monday.

North, 6, hit headlines worldwide thanks to her surprise rap performance at her dad Kanye West's Yeezy fashion show, during Paris Fashion Week.

North performed her own cover of ZaZa's viral hit "What I Do". And while she's only six-years-old, Zaza's parents felt that Kim should have stepped up and given credit to their daughter.

Following the show, ZaZa's parents responded on her Instagram page, writing:

"In July of 2019, ZaZa & her dad went into the studio for the ultimate experience! To finally begin making the music she wanted to make. We take PRIDE in creativity, and believe whether a child’s involved or an adult… creativity deserves RESPECT/homage! What @kimkardashian (Kanye west) are doing with their daughter… with the inspiration of ZaZa & our family in mind is okay… we not mad BUT… PLS SHOW LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ORIGINAL FIRST!!!"

They added: "We admire Kanye west, and adore his journey. However, we don’t wanna feel like our daughter’s journey in the world of entertainment is being STIFLED."

Kim responded in a comment on the Instagram post, writing:

"We love you, North is a huge fan and records in the studio all the time with her dad and is inspired by ZaZa and loves Lay Lay too! Today’s performance of North’s remix of ZaZa’s song was something she asked to do at the last minute and a complete surprise. I didn’t mean to not give credit where credit was due. Would love for the girls to meet soon."

Kanye West's eldest daughter, North West, made her surprise rap debut at the rap producer/ designer's Paris Fashion Week runway show in France on Monday, March 2.

In the impromptu performance, the six-year-old rapped up a storm as models showed off the Yeezy Autumn/Winter 2020 collection.

The youngster showed some of her dad's confidence and swagger, walking onto the stage to the sound of car horns.

"Look at my shoes, they're new and cool," she rapped. "See my school, I'm new, walk to the streets, yeah yeah yeah. Cool, cute, cool, yeah..."

Her proud mom, Kim Kardashian-West, and her aunt, Kourtney Kardashian, showed their support, cheering the youngster on, before a proud Kanye joined his daughter onstage.

The Season Eight Yeezy show followed another big day for North's dad - he hosted his Sunday Service in Paris for the first time.

Anyone can lease a Ferrari, but not everyone has the pleasure of owning one. That's because Ferrari is such an exclusive carmaker that they can pick and choose who gets to own one of their coveted luxury supercars.

Photo by BACKGRID

Celebrities must abide by the same stringent rules of Ferrari ownership that other elite applicants are subjected to.

According to Yahoo Sports, when accepting applications for purchase, Ferrari picks carefully. There's a saying that goes: "You don't own a Ferrari, Ferrari owns you."

Driving a Ferrari off a lot comes with certain privileges that are not available to just anyone.

Stars like Scott Disick (pictured top) and Travis Scott (pictured above) own Ferraris because they are low-key and not very flashy on social media.

Ferrari owners reflects the brand overall. Anyone who comes off as flashy, tacky or gaudy, will likely be denied ownership. Using their cars for self-promotion is also frowned upon.

If you're a celebrity with millions of social media followers, but zero class and a poor reputation for paying your bills, you're probably better off leasing a Ferrari.

Here are a few celebrities who have been banned from owning a Ferrari.

Tyga

Tyga is a washed up rapper with terrible credit and a shameful history of car repossessions. Among his repossessions was a Ferrari 458 Spider. It's safe to say that Tyga will be denied if he ever applies for Ferrari ownership.

The champion boxer earned his ban by flaunting his Ferraris for social media clout and only keeping his luxury supercars for a few months at a time. He is also banned from purchasing a Ferrari due to "financial trouble.”

The West Coast socialite can never purchase a Ferrari under her name, according to Yahoo. Black Chyna upset the automaker when she repainted her Ferrari in Barbie pink colors -- destroying the brand's specially formulated candy coated paint job in the process.

50 Cent is an exotic car enthusiast who owns an impressive collection of vehicles. But he will never own a Ferrari outright. That's because Ferrari frowns upon social media trolls using their products for clout. Fiddy had a dead battery in his Ferrari 488, so he took to social media to call his car a "f*cking lemon," which left a bad taste for the automaker.

Justin Bieber famously "lost" a 458 Italia while partying it up on the town, according to Yahoo. The blue Ferrari was found 3 weeks later by one of his assistants. Bieber's application will be rejected if he ever tries to purchase another one.

More information has emerged about musician Kanye West firing his popular Sunday Service choir. Kanye's Sunday Service events were wildly successful thanks to the energetic gospel performances by his soulful choir.

Rumor had it that the choir was let go, but Allhiphop.com claims only about 30 choir members are gone. The choir is still 80 members strong.

According to AHH, "These are not union workers and so they have no sort of protection whatsoever from being let go. As far as pay, they were not paid particularly well, I was told, unless $500 for three days of work is good to you."

AHH goes on to say many of the choir members left full-time jobs to travel with Kanye's rolling gospel revival. The gossip blog says those who were fired did not see the pink slips coming.

"This is a mix of people, many that are not young, and they still want to make it."

Kanye West has booked his Sunday Service choir to sing at a controversial evangelical event this weekend.

The rapper's gospel choir is booked to perform at Awaken 2020, a religious gathering that has sparked outrage from the LGBTQ community for its lineup of speakers.

The event is scheduled for the Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona on Saturday, Jan. 18.

Cindy Jacobs, who has been openly hostile towards gay marriage, and Lou Engle, an advocate of Uganda's anti-homosexuality bill, are booked to speak during the event, WENN.com reports.

Engle had high praise for Kanye, who gave up secular music to lead the unwashed masses to Jesus.

"We believe Kanye is a sign to this nation that in a moment, thousands and thousands can be swept into the kingdom when (God) converts key people and their voices will be like thunder," Engle told The Western Journal.

Kanye, 42, was not fazed by the backlash on social media. The producer and his wife Kim Kardashian, 39, watched the LA Lakers defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Staples Center on Jan. 13.

Fans online expressed their indignation and outrage that Kanye has agreed to allow his choir to perform at the religious gathering.

"People will still stan (stalk) Kanye despite him legitimizing and supporting radical anti-LGBTQ evangelicals/bigots," one fan tweeted, while another wrote: "What a f--king a--hole".

Kanye is rumored to be taking his Sunday Service choir on a world tour later this year.

Drake has no intentions of ending his longtime feud with fellow musician Kanye West. On Christmas Day, Drake, right, made it clear that he and Kanye, left, are no longer friends.

The two former pals once discussed releasing a joint album together, and Kanye appeared at Drake's OVO music festival several times.

But battle lines were drawn in 2018, when Drake claimed he was Kanye's ghost writer.

Kanye's collaborator, Malik Yusef, implied in an interview that the rap superstar had heard that Drake had a secret son. Then rapper Pusha T released "The Story Of Adidon," on which he revealed Drake had a secret son.

Reports suggested Kanye had given Pusha T the tip about the baby, but Kanye denied the claim.

The two superstars continued to attack each other on record and in the media.

In October 2019, Kanye revealed he had gone to great lengths to end the beef in a radio interview, stating:

"Me and Drake had this disagreement and he refused to speak to me for six months. That was so painful… You cannot be in service to God and be mad at your brother next door... I go to Drake's house with no security and just leave my number... Drake lives four blocks down the street from me."

But in his Christmas Day message, Drake made it clear he has no wish to be friends with Kanye, insisting he cannot "fix" the music producer.

"I think he kind of recruited a guy with a similar dislike for me, no matter what he says (in) interviews. He can tell whoever, 'I got love for him' or whatever, but it's not love... There's something there that bothers him deeply. Yeah, I can't fix it for him, so, it just is what it is.

"I'm not just some kid that's not a fan anymore. Now we have personal situations, and like I said, a lot of his issues with me, I can't fix them for him."

Drake also revealed he will forever bear a grudge against Pusha T for the way the rapper revealed his secret son to the world: "I have no desire to ever mend anything with that person," he said.

"I'll say this, I tip my hat to the chess move. I mean, it was a genius play in the game of chess. And definitely warranted my first quote-unquote 'loss' in the competitive sport of rapping. Some people like his music. I personally don't 'cause I don't believe any of it."

Meanwhile, Drake had the Internet buzzing on Christmas Day, when he dropped a surprise music video for his new track "War" off his upcoming album of the same title.

But hours later, he deleted the music video and re-uploaded it to his YouTube channel. Fans speculated that he removed the video to delete cameos of Marcella Zoia, the infamous "chair girl," who was arrested for throwing chairs off the balcony of a high rise hotel in Toronto, Canada.

Zoia pleaded guilty to mischief and causing danger to life and is awaiting sentencing next month. She faces six months in prison.

Jay-Z got in a man's face and snatched his cell phone for filming Beyonce at Sean Combs' star-studded 50th birthday party on Saturday.

The "Hard Knock Life" rapper was hovering protectively over his wife Beyonce as she bust a move on the dance floor at the Bad Boy Records founder's belated 50th birthday party.

The couple was among the many well-heeled guests helping their pal celebrate his big day at his Los Angeles mansion.

In footage filmed by a guest at the bash, the 39-year-old "Formation" singer can be seen getting down to Bobby Brown's classic hit "Every Little Step" alongside her pals Kelly Rowland and rapper Saweetie. Her overly protective husband hovered nearby.

The 50-year-old rapper quickly sprung to action when he caught a male guest standing right next to Beyonce with his cell phone out, seemingly trying to film the semi-retired singer.

In a second clip, the "Big Pimpin" rapper snatched the phone out of the stunned partygoer's hand. However, he appeared to return the phone swiftly after warning the reveler against recording his wife again.

The dreadlocked rapper can be heard asking the man, "Who invited you?"

The incident apparently didn't faze Beyonce, as the "Run The World (Girls)" star seemed to be in her own world.

The big night also saw Jay reunite with Kanye West, three years after the "Power" hitmaker called out Jay-Z and Beyonce onstage for skipping his 2014 wedding to wife Kim Kardashian-West.

Kanye and Jay-Z's 3-year feud was behind Kanye's infamous rant during a concert in 2017 when the 42-year-old rapper pleaded with Jay-Z to call him and begged him not to send his goons to kill him.

Soon after the rant, Kanye had a nervous breakdown and was admitted to a hospital mental ward.

A year later, Jay-Z told Rap Radar that Kanye's rant hurt him because he brought his wife Beyonce into their feud. He also said he loved Kanye and he reached out to him.

"It's a complicated relationship with us because Kanye came into this business on my label," Jay said.

"And we're both entertainers. It's always been like a little underlying competition here with your big brother. And we both love and respect each other's art too, so it's like, we both - everyone wants to be the greatest in the world. Then it's like a lot of other factors that play in it. But it's - we're gonna always be good."

When asked if there was still tension between him and Kanye, Jay said, "Yeah, yeah. But that happens in the long relationship. You know, hopefully when we're 89, we look at this six months or whatever time and we laugh at that."

Kanye West released his dark music video for his single "Closed On Sunday". It's fitting that Kanye released the visual on Thanksgiving Day since it's basically a plug for Chick-fil-A fast food restaurants.

The single is off his newly released platinum album Jesus Is King, which he describes as "an expression of the gospel." Listen to Jesus Is King here.

The video opens with Kanye watching over his wife, Kim Kardashian-West and their children, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, as they sleep on a rock formation in the desert.

In the next scene we see a caravan of light armored vehicles arriving in the desert, ready to do battle against unseen forces. The music video has an apocalyptic end-of-days tone to it.

After taking group portraits, Kanye climbs a rock formation to commune with God. "Follow Jesus, listen and obey," he raps. "No more livin' for the culture, we nobody's slave."

    I pray to god that he'll strengthen my hand
    They will think twice steppin' onto my land
    I draw the line, it's written in the sand
    Try me and you will see that I ain't playin'


    Now, back up off my family, move your hands
    I got my weapons in the spirit's land
    I, Jezebel don't even stand a chance
    Jezebel don't even stand a chance

Everyone's favorite part of the video is the final shot - when little North screams "CHIC-FIL-AAAAA!"

Kim Kardashian-West is reportedly set to launch oversized, conservative clothing for church folk who are fed up with women wearing club dresses to worship.

Kardashian-West, who is known as the First Lady of Sunday Service, was seated in the front row when her husband Kanye West preached at Joel Osteen's impressive megachurch in Houston, Texas over the weekend.

Kim wore an oversized green outfit that some people believe is from an unreleased Yeezy clothing line designed for conservative church folk.

"Why is Kim Kardashian wearing that 3X Tall suit from Harold Pener as her modest outfit for church? Girl, just wear some jeans and a shirt," wrote one Twitter user.

Kanye West, a 42-year-old Gemini, turned his back on secular rap music to answer God's call to lead the unwashed masses back to the church with his rolling gospel music revival.

Kanye West issued another warning to parents to protect their children from “indoctrination" by Hollywood's entertainment machine.

Kanye issued the warning during his Sunday Service sermon at Joel Osteen's megachurch in Houston, Texas over the weekend.

Kanye said his fellow narcissistic celebrities will do anything for fame. The father of four said celebrities are in service to Satan, not God.

"You start to feel like Satan is the most powerful and you start to feel that if you service God in life it means you will not prosper and the only way to prosper is in service to fame," said Kanye."

He suggested that Satan may be the reason today's music sucks.

"Satan stole all the best producers. Satan stole all the best musicians, all the good business people and said you've got to come over and work for me," said Kanye.

He added: "Satan stole all the best designers. Hollywood puts images and symbolism in movies and tv shows to indoctrinate your kids into lives of emptiness, service to self, and feeding the eye...

"We have our own daughters and we're still rapping about trying to hook up with somebody's daughter.”

Kanye reassured his fans that he has been sent to save them from the Hollywood's Satanic influence.

"Jesus has won the victory because now the greatest artist that God has ever created is working for him. All of that arrogance and confidence and cockiness y’all seen me use before, God is now using for Him."

He warned parents to protect "your kids from the indoctrination of the media, the thousands of thousands of images that are fed to children by the age of 6 or 7."

Kanye said social media imagery is "purposely mixed in to lower the kid's super power and esteem so that they can be more susceptible to consumption and feel that they need to consume and become a part of the robotic numeric system that controls so much."

Kanye West's traveling gospel revival "Sunday Service" will roll into Joel Osteen's megachurch this Sunday, according to TMZ.

Kanye was invited to bring his popular Sunday Service revival to the megachurch in Houston, Texas. Osteen blocked off 20 to 30 minutes this Sunday for Kanye to perform gospel songs off his new album, Jesus Is King.

Also performing will be Kanye's Sunday Service choir who are featured on the album.

Kanye, 42, famously turned his back on secular music because he believes the current generation of young people need Jesus.

Lakewood Church is the largest megachurch in America. Osteen is often criticized for promoting prosperity and wealth at his ministry.

Kanye also focuses his efforts on accumulating great wealth. The father of four was upset when Forbes declined to acknowledge him as a billionaire after he presented a receipt for $890 million.

The "Jesus Walks" rapper even considered changing his name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West.

Kanye recently disclosed that the IRS cut him a refund check for $68 million.

Kanye West is a born-again Christian and a musical genius with dreams of being a billionaire. So why not change his name to stand in his truth?

A wise person once said "You are what you think." Kanye thinks he is the most successful and wealthiest artist of his generation. During an appearance at the FastCompany Innovation Festival 2019 in New York City, Kanye, 42, says he might change his name to reflect his billionaire status.

"When people say it's crass to call yourself a billionaire, I say I might legally change my name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West for a year until y'all understand exactly what it is… It will be on the license plate."

Kanye said he is determined to prove Forbes wrong after the magazine refused to recognize him as a billionaire when he showed them a receipt for $890 million. Forbes recognized his sister-in-law Kylie Jenner as a billionaire with no receipts.

By changing his name, Kanye will force the world to recognize him as a billionaire because billionaire is his middle name.

"When I did Forbes, I showed them a $890 million receipt and they still didn't say 'billionaire.' They don't want us to know that we can buy land; they don’t want us to have the 100 percent ownership [that] I have at Yeezy."

Kanye recently disclosed that the IRS cut him a refund check for $68 million. The hefty check brings him that much closer to his dreams of billionaire status.

Kanye West is on a whirlwind promotional tour in New York City to launch his new Yeezy sneaker made of algae. The 42-year-old gospel musician toured a Burberry store with his wife Kim Kardashian-West.

During a spontaneous party thrown by WSJ magazine and FastCompany, Kanye said he plans to run for president in 2024.

In a video clip from the FastCompany Innovation Festival where Kanye spoke on a panel, he asked professional athletes in the NBA and NFL to stop playing for a week to help free Rodney Reed, the inmate whom Kim Kardashian-West is lobbying to get off death row.

"All the evidence says this guy didn't do it, and he's supposed to be executed in 30 days, and all the celebrity blacks will tweet about it. But the question is, will they stop playing basketball for a week to make sure that this innocent man gets out?"

Kanye also asked Black people to stop voting for who the elites choose for them.

"For Black people I say own your power. Your power is not to just vote Democrat for the rest of our lives. That's not the power," he said, according to Page Six.

"The power is when I talk to my lawyer ... I put on my trench coat and said, 'We're moving these factories to America, and that's how it's going to be' — and it's lovely." He debuted an algae sneaker, and proclaimed, "We moved the headquarters to Cody, Wyo … Our goal is to bring the manufacturing back to America — South America, North America — bring it back Stateside and to present jobs for people back here."

Kanye touched on losing his deal with Louis Vuitton which he said triggered his mental breakdown that landed him in a psychiatric ward in 2016.

"No one knew that was the beginning of me going to the hospital," he said.

Kim Kardashian-West says she has made sacrifices and totally compromises for Kanye West as he goes through a midlife change.

Kim stopped by The Real daytime talk show on Wednesday and suggested the rap musician, who turned his back on secular music, is going through a midlife crisis.

Kanye gave up rap music to preach to the unwashed masses during his popular Sunday Service gospel revival tour. Kim told The Real co-hosts that she supports her 42-year-old husband while he embarks on his religious journey. "I obviously want to honor him and what he's feeling. And he's been going through this life change," she said.

The West Coast socialite revealed she fights with her husband over the differences in their approach to raising their children since he became a born-again Christian.

The 39-year-old mother of four said Kanye removed the televisions from their children's bedrooms and he forbid 6-year-old North West from wearing lipstick.

Photo by JACK / BACKGRID

"He's very cautious about what we have in the house. We got rid of TVs in the kids' room and removed makeup from North's room. He's had this epiphany of being this... not that he wasn't an amazing dad, but being more strict as a dad and very forceful on the imagery that's in our household and what they see."

She said she has had to compromise as Kanye becomes "more strict" as a dad. She said they sometimes fight over his excessive demands. Rumor has it that he went through her closets and ordered her to stop dressing in half naked clothing.

"I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is. He's going to do things that I don't agree with and I support him and vice versa."

More than 1,000 people committed their lives to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior at Kanye West's latest Sunday Service. Calling it "a new wave revival", a Louisiana pastor said 1,000 Christians raised their hands and committed their lives to Christ at Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Friday night.

"In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, I witnessed over 1,000 people respond to The Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior!" said Pastor Curvine Brewington, of Crossroads Church in Lafayette, Louisiana.


 

But the evening didn't end without some controversy. There were complaints that organizers sold "brunch" for $55 a plate. At least one woman demanding her money back for unsavory-looking food, according to Dailymail.com.

Kimberly Kinchen posted a Facebook image of her plate that she says she paid $55 for. The meal consisted of 2 pancakes, what appears to be a sausage patty and 2 slices of bacon. Kitchen was not satisfied after taking 2 bites of the pancakes.

Kitchen contacted a local news station to complain. "Can y'all cover a story on this because I want my coins back. This is the wonderful & COLD brunch BUFFET we are being served," she said, adding, "the server looked at me crazy when I asked for another pancake."

Kanye, 42, is pictured above attending a Ralph Lauren event in Chicago on Oct. 28.

More than 1,000 people attended the 'Brunchella' church service in Louisiana on Friday to hear the anointed one, Kanye, speak and perform selections from his No. 1 album, Jesus Is King.

Kanye brought three of his four children - North West, 6, Saint West, 3, and Chicago West, 22 months - to witness the revival.

Kanye, who is on the autism spectrum, understands better than most that young people need Jesus more than ever.

Pastor Brewington posted a photo that showed hundreds of worshipers raising their hands during an alter call.

"If you've ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this Sunday service project, simply look at this incredible shot taken by @the.smitan during the altar call. YES, I said ALTAR CALL," Brewington wrote.

"Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given," he added.

Bargain website Vouchercloud broke down the Forbes 100 richest celebrities by their zodiac signs. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who is worth untold billions of dollars, is the highest-earning Capricorn.

Of the 100 richest celebrities, 13 are Capricorns, 10 are Cancers, and 10 are Taurus, according to London's Dailymail.com.

Golfer Tiger Woods is a top-earning Capricorn; Taylor Swift is the highest-earning Sagittarius. She is followed by pop singer Ed Sheeran as the best-paid Aquarius.

Kim Kardashian-West is the highest-earning Libra, and her half sister, Kylie Jenner is supposedly the best paid Leo sign.

Why do zodiac signs matter? They matter because studies have shown there are differences between people who are born under certain zodiac signs.

For instance, Capricorns (born between December 22 and January 19) tend to be highly intelligent, least narcissistic, and the richest (see how those attributes go together?).

FayesVision/WENN.com

Famous Capricorns include actors Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson and Jane Fonda, NBA star LeBron James, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, conservative talk show hosts Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, R&B singer Mary J. Blige, celebrity spawn Blue Ivy Carter, and dead notables Muhammad Ali, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Elvis Presley.

Geminis (May 22 - June 21) tend to be more successful, rich, and more narcissistic.

Famous Geminis include U.S. President Donald Trump, rap producer-turned gospel singer Kanye West, rapper Busta Rhymes, actresses Angelina Jolie and Joan Collins, R&B singers Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight, and dead superstars Tupac Shakur and Marilyn Monroe.

The most romantic zodiac signs are Pisces (February 19 - March 20), Aries (March 21 - April 20) and Virgo (August 23 - September 22).

In response to complaints by Kanye West and others, Instagram has banned sexually suggestive emojis, including the eggplant and the peach, which resemble parts of the human anatomy.

The eggplant emoji has been used to suggest an erect phallus, while the peach resembles a woman's buttocks. The water drops resemble ejaculation.

Instagram bosses say users on their platforms can no longer use those emojis - even to cover up genitals on photos.

The emojis can still be used in captions, but not to convey sexually suggestive content or ask for anything sexual. The changes will cut down on sex workers plying their trade on the social media platform.

The new changes have been implemented in Facebook's Sexual Solicitation Community Standards which took effect on October 24. Sex workers will no longer be allowed to advertise their services on Instagram or Facebook.

Users who are not sex workers still can't use the emojis in their photo posts. The changes have sparked fury online.

One user wrote:

"Facebook's about to start banning people for smutty art and butt shots. They still won't ban Nazis and TERFs because 'free speech,' but god help you if you use an eggplant emoji."

Kanye West complained that social media entices men like him to stray from their marriages by hosting free photos of half naked women.

Kanye West says social media entices men like him to stray from their marriages by hosting free photos of half naked women.

Kanye, 42, says he "suffers like Jesus" whenever he surfs social media, only to be confronted by images of women in various stages of undress.

The former rapper says social media tests a man's limits with all those sexy photos.

In an interview with Apple Music, Kanye compared social media to "modern day cigarettes" for their addictive qualities.

"I suffer - and I appreciate the suffering because we can just feel a little bit of what Jesus felt when we suffer, but social media makes me suffer," he said.

'I suffer from that and by me saying this out loud, I'm sure there's other married men that suffer in a similar way that are happy to hear me say, "Oh ya, I'm suffering."'

Wen asked why this is a specific problem for married men, he answered, "Because social media prompts women in particular to put out content that they wouldn't have put out...".

Kanye said the immediate availability of smut on social media only aggravates his sex addiction.

"When I was younger and I wanted to see something like that I had to pay someone that was older to go to 7/11 and buy it," he said, referring to p0rn magazines.

Kanye, who shares four children with his socialite wife Kim Kardashian-West, said his addiction to p0rn began when he discovered a Playboy magazine when he was 5. He said the discovery "affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life".

Kanye previously asked his wife, Kim, to tone down her sexy outfits. He also reportedly asked other rappers to avoid having premarital sex while working on his No. 1 album, Jesus Is King.

Kanye was admitted into a psychiatric hospital in 2016 after he experienced a psychological emergency (mental breakdown).

President Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., is a big fan of Kanye West's new album Jesus Is King. Kanye's 9th studio album is predicted to move over 400,000 copies in first week sales, making it one of the biggest selling albums of the year.

If Trump Jr is a fan of Kanye's new music, his dad is probably a gospel fan, too. Visitors to the White House likely hear the strains Kanye's hip-hop gospel music from the private residence.

Although the album has its critics, Trump Jr. was very impressed with what he heard. He took the time to praise the former rapper for being a pioneer and having the courage to blaze trails where few rappers dare to go.

"Kanye West is cracking the culture code. @kanyewest's new album #JesusIsKing is the epitome of fearless creativity and 'dangerous, unapproved' ideas. Leftists always try to silence those who are speaking truth. They're waging a war on our family and culture. Kanye is a pioneer."

TMZ has fired veteran reporter Van Lathan after an on-air argument with another TMZ staffer escalated to verbal threats.

According to Page Six, TMZ handed Lathan his walking papers after he got into a nasty confrontation with fellow reporter, Michael Babcock, right.

Lathan famously confronted former rap producer Kanye West who said "slavery was a choice" on TMZ Live in May 2018.

While Lathan was praised for checking Kanye on the air last year, he was let go this week for doing the same thing to Babcock.

According to Page Six, the two men argued over a political matter that escalated out of control when threats were leveled. The shouting match was edited out of the segment on "TMZ Live" last week.

After the segment, Lathan, who hosts the popular "Red Pill" podcast, confronted Babcock, who is more conservative in his political views.

A source tells Page Six that Lathan threatened Babcock, saying there would be trouble if he "ever embarrassed [Lathan] like that again."

Insiders say that Lathan met with TMZ's attorneys, and that he was suspended after the meeting. He was officially let go a few days later, Page Six reports.

Sources tell Page Six that Lathan was "a huge part" of TMZ's success over the past few years, and that they were stunned he had been fired from the show.

Lathan declined to speak with Page Six on the advice of his attorney. Babcock reportedly hung up on a Page Six reporter.

Kanye West has officially turned his back on secular music after accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Rap music helped make Kanye West a multi-millionaire many times over. But according to Kanye's pastor, rap music is "the devil's music," and he wants no part of it.

Adam Tyson, West's pastor at Placerita Bible Church in California, says Kanye turned his back on secular music after he recently became a born-again Christian.

"One time, he told me that he wasn't going to rap [anymore]," Tyson said in an interview.

"I said, 'Why not?' He said, 'That's the devil's music'. I said, 'Hey, man. Rap is a genre. You can rap for God'."

Tyson told Kanye he could still use his God-given rap talent to make millions for his church.

But Kanye told him the devil's music was responsible for his sinful behavior.

"The guilt of sin brought him down low. He would say the devil basically brought him to a place where he just felt like he was in bondage to his sin. So he said, 'I got delivered'."

Kanye also said his wife Kim Kardashian's revealing style of dress was becoming a problem for him.

He said Kim's provocative style of dress was negatively affecting his "soul and spirit."

Kanye West's plan to take his popular "Sunday Service" gospel revival to Jamaica has angered local pastors there.

The rap producer is debuting his revival in Kingston's Emancipation Park on the Caribbean island on Friday night, but local pastors have taken exception to his plans.

The island country is deeply religious and the Jamaican people consider themselves Christians. They take the Word of God very literally.

Religious leaders in Jamaica question the star's commitment to God, despite West's claims he is a born-again Christian.

"I don't know him (West) as a Christian and someone who is being led by the Holy Spirit," local pastor Stephen Blake told the Jamaica Star, according to WENN.com. "We have to examine the motive here."

They are suspicious of West's plan to take a team to the venue to cleanse it of impure spirits before the Sunday Service.

"From a spiritual perspective, I am not 100 per cent comfortable," Blake explained. "Therefore, I am calling for the church to pray against this, just in case there is anything negative associated with this service that Kanye is coming to Jamaica to keep."

The clergyman expressed fears the "Jesus Walks" musician is embracing religion for publicity or personal profit.

"Some say that he is the Antichrist," Blake said. "Him go mad one day, then him say Trump the next day, and then him come with religion. If his motive is to get attention and stay relevant, then that is wrong."

Another local minister, Father Sean Major-Campbell, advised "caution" over the star's motives but thought the event was just an "entertainment option".

Others, including Jamaican dancehall producer Cordel 'Skatta' Burrell, are angry over the disruption brought by West's event, which has been backed by the Jamaica Tourist Board.

Burrell added: "His Jesus agenda is solely for the benefit of generating sales for his upcoming gospel album and he's only playing chess."

The rapper's gospel album, Jesus Is King, and an accompanying documentary film are due out next Friday, Oct. 25.

This is the first time West has taken his Sunday Service gospel revival outside the U.S.

Former musician Kanye West dropped the trailer to his much-anticipated IMAX gospel film "Jesus is King" on Friday.

The film is billed as a "one-of-a-kind experience" featuring songs arranged by West in the gospel tradition along with new music from his forthcoming album JESUS IS KING.

Jesus is King was filmed in the summer of 2019 and brings West's famed "Sunday Service" to life in visionary artist James Turrell's Roden Crater, a never-before-seen art installation in Arizona's Painted Desert.

The trailer opens with a graphic that appears to be golden steps leading up to a white obelisk as a Heavenly choir sings "Ohhhh! Saved by His Grace. It's in His will. His will."

The camera pans inside the white obelisk which is replaced by a blue background bearing a Bible verse.

"In the words of Jesus Christ, 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe in the gospel.' Mark 1:15."

West, who is on the autism spectrum, understands better than most that today's generation needs Jesus more than ever. He utilizes the power of imagery and art interacting with gospel music to reach the unwashed masses.

The film opens in IMAX theaters on October 25, 2019.

Limited tickets are on sale now at jesusisking.imax.com.

Pastor Jamal Bryant caused waves at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church when he redirected Kanye West's donation to Atlanta's Morris Brown College in the name of Kanye's late mom, Donda West.

Kanye held his popular "Sunday Service" at Bryant's New Birth Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday, Sept. 15.

Before the service Kanye presented Bryant with a sizable donation for the church.

But on Sunday, Oct. 13, Bryant told his congregation he didn't want Kanye's money after the rap musician expressed his support for President Trump and the Republican Party in Utah.

"Abraham Lincoln was the wig party, that's the Republican party that freed the slaves," Kanye told the crowd of about 9,000 worshipers in Utah.

Bryant was livid.

"I went into prayer, and it dawned on me in prayer that Dr. Donda West, who was the mother of Kanye West, is a former professor at Morris Brown College," Bryant said on Sunday.

Bryant said he was redirecting Kanye's donation to Morris Brown in Donda West's name.

"I am not a runaway slave," Bryant said.

"To that end, Mr. West made a significant donation to New Birth Cathedral, but I do not want to be guilty of double speech. I met with my team today and the donation that he made to our church, I am now redirecting.

"I am thankful for the gift, thankful the seed, thankful for the sacrifice but I don't want to be seen in any way, shape or form to be seen in cahoots with philosophy or with policies that keep our people in bondage.

Bryant went on to say he was "not a preacher that can be bought or comes with a price tag."

Morris Brown College has been in dire straits financially since losing its accreditation in 2002. Only 50 students out of 2,700 remain on the historic campus.

Fans of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don't know what to make of the news that the rapper-turned preacher didn't attend his children's Baptism in Armenia, Kim's birthplace.

Kim, 38, shared several beautiful photos on Thursday with her oldest daughter, North West, from inside Armenia's first cathedral, Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, The Blast reports.

"Thank you Armenia for such a memorable trip," Kim captioned the shots.

"So blessed to have been baptized along with my babies at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia's main cathedral which is sometimes referred to as the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Church," Kim explained.

According to The Blast, it's unclear if 6-year-old North, who was already baptized in Jerusalem years ago, was a participant in this baptism.

But one person who was noticeably missing from the baptism was the children's father, Kanye.

According to several news outlets, the baptism happened on Monday and included Kim's three youngest children: Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and Psalm, 5 months.

But Kanye didn't witness the baptisms in Armenia, as he is busy preaching to the unwashed masses during his popular "Sunday Service" rolling gospel revival in the United States.

Kanye, a 42-year-old Gemini, recently took a break from his revival tour to meet up with former NBA player Rick Fox, 50, in his native Bahamas.

The stars went to the Bahamas to help rebuild communities that were negatively impacted by Hurricane Dorian.

Kanye West loved socialite Kim Kardashian before he even met her. The famed music producer says he had a "magnetic attraction" to Kim when the couple first met 10 years before they started dating.

In a new episode of the docuseries E! True Hollywood Story, airing on Sunday, Oct. 13, Kanye recalled the early days of their romance. The 42-year-old rapper gushed about the strong chemical attraction he felt for his "loving" and "courageous" future wife.

"Every time I was around her or I saw her, it was a magnetic attraction to this force of energy," West says in a clip from the segment. "She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong."

The animal attraction wasn't as strong for Kim. The 38-year-old Libra reveals that her path kept crossing the rapper's before she deemed him worthy of dating in 2012.

"We just always kept connecting and coming into each other's lives," she adds. "And, then he invited me to Paris to his fashion show and that's when it happened. That's when we started our relationship. "I was like, 'S--t! Why didn't this happen sooner?' It was just right."

The couple tied the knot on May 24, 2014. They share four children - two by IVF and a surrogate. The brunette beauty recalls Kanye was initially discouraged from being associated with her.

"Everyone would tell him, 'You can't be with her. She's a reality star. She's gonna sink your career'," she recalls. "And, he was just like, 'But I love her. I don't care'."

Kanye West took his "Sunday Service" rolling gospel revival to Salt Lake City, Utah on Saturday to preach to the unwashed masses ahead of the presidential election in 2020.

"Abraham Lincoln was the wig party, that's the Republican party that freed the slaves," he told the crowd of about 9,000 worshipers.

"People want to call me a coon because I chose my right - in America, we got the right, right? We got our own right to our opinions, right?

"Somebody trying to tell me, because of my color, who I'm supposed to pick as the president. You Black so you can't like Trump," Kanye said, as the crowd booed.

Kanye continued, "I ain't never made a decision only based off my color! That's a form of slavery - mental slavery!"

West also slammed social media users, adding, "Do not read comments on the Internet. These people don't know you like that. Social media is designed to make you think slower... They want to slow you down and control you."

According to WENN.com, the controversial rap star also touched on American prison reform, adding, “There's one in three African-Americans in jail in this country."

But there was no mention of his long-awaited and oft-delayed Jesus Is King album, which was expected to drop on September 27.
