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.

After months of delays, Kanye West's long-anticipated Jesus Is King gospel album is finally here. But not everyone is impressed.

Jesus Is King is just 35 minutes long and relies heavily on Biblical texts.

Fox News called Jesus Is King "an evangelical rant about the evils of the modern world."

Kanye held listening parties in Detroit, Chicago and New York City over the weekend. While in New York, Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian-West took their children, North West, 6, Saint West, 3, and 1-year-old Chicago West to Cipriani's for lunch before holding his Sunday Service.

After dropping his album Kanye surprised fans by announcing he will stop making secular music and focus only on gospel music.

The announcement was met with skepticism and shock.

Many social media users believe Kanye is suffering from a mental illness characterized by religious fanaticism.

Religious fanaticism is defined as an obsessive enthusiasm and hypercritical devotion to religion.

Religious fanaticism is linked to many psychiatric illness, including Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, Anti-Social Personality Disorder, depression and anxiety.

Kanye West treated lucky fans to an advance preview of his album Jesus Is King in Detroit, Michigan on Friday night.

The rapper was supposed to drop his highly anticipated gospel album on Friday, but instead, he hastily organized a mystery fan get together in Detroit.

Earlier in the day, a spokesperson at the Fox Theater told Rolling Stone magazine the star booked the event on the same day and refused to share further details.

The spokesperson said he usually doesn't book the theater on the same day - but it's Kanye West!

Lucky ticket holders who attended the gathering, dubbed Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience, enjoyed a sneak preview of the long-awaited gospel album.

The event was free but ticket holders were asked to surrender their phones during the secretive event to prevent leaks. The preview session also featured a video clip from Kanye's upcoming IMAX documentary, Jesus Is Lord.

The Yeezy mogul's wife Kim Kardashian shared a clip online of fans cheering the star as he made a special appearance.

She later took to her Instagram stories to announce the project was set to drop on Sunday, in addition to more listening sessions to be held in his native Chicago and NYC.

"Kanye's doing a listening session in Chicago tomorrow, then NYC (New York City) Sunday. He's dropping the album Sunday. Just a few final tweaks to the mixes."

The 12-track album reportedly includes the previously released track "Water", which he debuted at one of his Sunday Service gospel gatherings earlier this year, along with tunes including "Follow God", "New Body", "Up From the Ashes", and "Sunday".

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris felt "exploited" when he and his long-suffering wife Tameka Harris attended Kanye West's Sunday Service at the invitation of mega church leader Jamal Bryant.

T.I. explained what was going through his mind in the photo below as he attended Kanye's Sunday service at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta last weekend.

The "I'm Serious" rapper captioned the image, "Yeaaahhh Maaaan We MUST discuss what caused this look on my face in Sunday Service...."

T.I. said he was offended by the church shaking him down for a generous tithe before the service.

"When we sat down there was a whole new agenda. It was like they rung the red bell at the Player's Club," T.I. said, referring to the hit movie starring the late comedian Bernie Mac, and actors Jamie Foxx and LisaRaye.

“It's not that I have [anything] against pastors or against preachers so-to-speak. It's just I've been raised in the trenches and I was taught to peep game. You ain't [about to] run no game on me. I will not be extorted."

T.I.'s statement prompted Byrant to deny the allegations. In short, Bryant claims he nor his church put pressure on the rappers to open their wallets and tithe to the church.

"I don't want Sunday to be used as further ammunition as to why people don’t go to church without them knowing at this same church we gave 5000 pairs of new back to school shoes to kids of #Atlanta, or that we spearheaded 9 million campaign to support @bennett_college , or that we bailed out nonviolent offenders or that we partnered with @delta to send 4 cargo to #Bahamas for hurricane release or that we’ve partnered with @_hamptonu to place 95 displaced students or that we fed the furloughed workers for two weeks while the government was shut down or that we went into housing projects to feed kids of #dekalb county during spring break. For none of these projects were you solicited for a donation."

For the past 2 weeks rap producer Kanye West has taken his Sunday Service gospel revue on the road in America. The first stop was in his hometown of Chicago, Illinois, where he preached to the unwashed masses last weekend.

This weekend Kanye brought his traveling gospel revue to Atlanta at the invitation of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church leader, Jamal H. Bryant.

The 42-year-old Gemini wore a white t-shirt and grey sweatpants. In video on the church's website, Kanye caught the Holy Ghost onstage in the packed mega church as the choir sang rousing gospel songs.

Kanye's Sunday Service started out as exclusive worship gatherings with his inner circle in a field in Calabasas, California.
 

One of the first things A$AP Rocky did when he was freed from a jail in Sweden was to reach out to his good friend Kanye West to let him know he would attend his Sunday Service in Calabasas, Calif. Rocky was arrested and jailed in a pre-trial detention center in Sweden following a street fight with 2 Afghan migrants on June 30.
