Former socialite Amber West revealed ex-fiancé Kanye West has bullied her for a decade, and she's tired of it.

Amber, who dated Kanye for two years, revealed they split on bad terms in 2010. She claimed Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian-West was one of the reasons that she and Kanye split.

Amber may sound bitter, but she claims Kanye continues to bully her a decade after they split.

"Even if someone is picking on me which he has for 10 years. He has picked on me, he has bullied me for 10 years," Amber said on the No Jumper YouTube channel. "He just called me a prostitute and, like, 10 years later, just leave me alone."

She added: "And then I'm a woman... you're bullying me, like, just move on with your life!"

Amber assumed her ex is calling her out to make his wife more comfortable. The mom-of-two suggested she may be the wedge between Kanye and Kim that drove him to move to Wyoming two years ago.

"I always stood up for Kim," said Amber. "I always, like, she had an ex-boyfriend that she loved at the time and she made a sex tape... it's just not a big deal to me.

If Kanye West is out of the race for president, he hasn't gotten the memo. The mega producer unveiled his first campaign ad on Twitter on Monday.

He captioned the ad: "we stepping out on faith."

Standing against a backdrop of a black and white flag, Kanye said, "America. What is America's destiny? What is best for our nation? Our people? What is just, true justice? We have to think about all these things together as a people."

The father of four went on to discuss his vision for America.

"To contemplate our future, to live up to our dream, we must have vision. We as a people will revive our nation's commitment to faith, to what our Constitution calls the free exercise of religion, including, of course, prayer. Through prayer, faith can be restored," he said.

Kanye, 43, hopes to become this nation's 46th president. But he has a steep uphill climb against Donald Trump and his challenger Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

"We as a people are called to a greater purpose than ourselves," said Kanye. "We are not only a beacon to the world, but we should be servants to each other. To encourage each other, to help each other to lift up each other.

"Our fellow Americans, that we may all prosper together. We have to act on faith, with the sure knowledge that we are pursuing the right goals and doing the right things. We will build a stronger country by building stronger families. Families are the building blocks of society, of a nation. By turning to faith, we will be the kind of nation, the kind of people God intends us to be."

Kanye pleaded for civility between the 2 major political parties in the U.S.

"There's a crying need for civility across the board. We need to and will come together in the name of Jesus," tweeted the husband of Kim Kardashian. "I'm praying for President Trump's and Melania's full recovery, just as I would for Joe and Jill Biden if they were stricken, as well as everyone else with COVID-19.”

President Trump, 74, spent three days receiving treatment at Walter Reed Military Medical Center. A week later he was cleared by his doctor to return to the campaign trail.

When Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West exchanged vows, she promised to care for her estranged husband in sickness and in health.

Years later, she did just that when Kanye came down with the flu-like coronavirus.

Kim covers the premiere issue of GRAZIA magazine. She tells the publication about Kanye's "scary" experience with the virus.

"Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on," she said. "It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help."

The reality TV star said she went to Kanye's Wyoming ranch to care for the ailing music producer during his illness, adding that "changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time."

"I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn't feeling good. It was a challenge because it was so unknown," Kim explained.

Kim and Kanye have lived in separate states for at least two years. But Kim flew to her estranged husband's bedside to help him get back on his feet.

Kanye told Forbes in July that his flu-like symptoms included "chills" and "shaking in bed" from a high fever.

He also watched videos "telling me what I'm supposed to do to get over it," he said.

"I remember someone had told me [rapper] Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can't be sicker than me."

Kim added that she believes the slowing pandemic is God's way of telling Mother Earth to take a break.

"I'm the type of person that respects the process, that respects what's going on in the world," she said. "Maybe our planet needed a break."

New York radio host Charlamagne the god claims Kanye West is in debt to Big Sean, an artist on his G.O.O.D. Music label.

Kanye went on a Twitter.com rant, denouncing Universal Music Group for refusing to give him ownership of his masters.

In a series of tweets over several days, Kanye posted his entire contract on Twitter. The 43-year-old mega producer tweeted a video that showed him urinating on one of his 21 Grammy Awards submerged in a toilet bowl.

But Charlamagne insists that Kanye West doesn't treat his own artists the way he wants to be treated by the overlords at UMG.

During a recent Breakfast Club "Rumor Report" segment, Charlamagne claimed Kanye owes Big Sean millions of dollars while keeping 50% of the rapper's royalties and profits.

"The restraint Big Sean shows to Kanye West is remarkable," Charlemagne said. "I hope one day Big Sean tells his story, but just know Kanye West owes Big Sean a whole lot of money and he got Big Sean in a very terrible contract to be out here screaming about giving folks their masters back."

Charlamagne wasn't done. He said Kanye won't help his own artists get their masters back.

"Kanye West owes Big Sean $3 million, Kanye West gets half of Sean's profits and half of Sean's royalties, and Kanye wouldn't agree to Big Sean getting his masters back from Def Jam... Kanye needs to do right by Big Sean."

Kanye West defended rap mogul Jay Z upon his return to Twitter on Friday following a temporary ban for sharing a journalist's phone number on his timeline.

Kanye, 43, tweeted screenshots of messages by blogger Akademiks, featuring the headline, "Jay Z Allegedly Sold Kanye's Masters to Get Own Masters Back."

"Don't let the system pit us against each other," Kanye tweeted on Friday. "JAY IS MY BROTHER ... I have eternal love for all artist that have been through and are still trapped this crooked system. Jay still doesn't get his own masters back for ten years. I will see to it that we all get our masters."

He added: "we will change the paradigm."

Kanye, who is battling Universal Music Group for ownership of his masters, posted his entire contract on Twitter earlier this week.

Several music industry execs who read through the contracts concluded that Jay Z sold Kanye's first six albums in order to get his own masters back.

@lavidaNOTA, a South African label owner, wrote:

"Kanye contracts SUMMARY: Apart from the inducement which Kanye had to sign to get his advances. This shows that Jay Z sold the masters to first 6 @kanyewest's albums just so he could get his own back. He did so knowing Def Jam won't sell them back to Kanye in future. That's BEEF!

"[Kanye] owns album[s] 7-10 but the most lucrative and most critically acclaimed albums are owned by Roc-A-Fella which is wholly owned by Def Jam... The majors will never sell you your masters because that's what gives them market share and drives profits and Jay Z knew that."

Now we know why Kanye West hates Jay Z with a passion. Kanye went on a Twitter rampage, posting his contracts and urinating on his Grammy Award.

@lavidaNOTA, who calls himself The Authority, is a South African record label owner who read over the contracts that Kanye posted on Twitter.com this week.

@lavidaNOTA writes, "I have 16-years experience in the music business... It took me all night to understand Kanye's contracts. Aspiring artists have no idea what they are getting themselves into. This is why it’s important to ask people who have been through it for advice!"

Apparently, Jay Z sold the masters to Kanye's first six albums just so he could get his own masters back.

"Kanye contracts SUMMARY: Apart from the inducement which Kanye had to sign to get his advances. This shows that Jay Z sold the masters to first 6 @kanyewest's albums just so he could get his own back. He did so knowing Def Jam won't sell them back to Kanye in future. That's BEEF!"

@lavidaNOTA says Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey banning Kanye from Twitter had nothing to do with him posting a Forbes editor's phone number.

"Jack Dorsey aka @jack was jogging with Jay Z just a few weeks ago. Now Kanye is banned from tweeting for 12-24 hours. Sounds about rights!"

Kanye West was temporarily banned by Twitter after he shared a screenshot of a journalist's phone number.

The ban came after Kanye went on a tweeting rampage over the past few days that including a video of himself urinating on a Grammy Award and posting screenshots of his recording contract.

On Wednesday, Kanye shared a screenshot of a phone number belonging to Forbes magazine chief content officer Randall Lane. He wrote: "If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist... this is the editor of Forbes."

Kanye was temporarily banned from the social media platform until he logged in and deleted the tweet.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the offending tweet had not been deleted, but Twitter has hidden the tweet from public view.

Earlier in the day, the 43-year-old mega producer tweeted a video that showed him urinating on one of his 21 Grammy Awards submerged in a toilet bowl.

"Trust me... I WONT STOP," Kanye wrote alongside the video clip.

The father of four also complained about his recording contract.

"90% of the record contracts on the planet are still on a royalty A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup, and there’s all these hidden costs like the ‘distribution fees’ many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying."

According to Showbiz411, Kanye received a $12 million advance in 2012 for his 2013 album Yeezus - that went on to sell just 609,000 copies in 7 years.

Presidential hopeful Kanye West reportedly asked his staff to refrain from "fornicating" outside of marriage.

The unusual request is part of Kanye's morality clause to establish proper employee conduct on and off the job.

According to a former staffer, Kanye portrays himself as a godly man with high morals, and he expects no less from the people who work with him.

According to the NY Post, Kanye has made abortion a central focus of his campaign for president.

"You can't do that. I don't want to ban or stop or point fingers at anything," said the father of four, who pledged "stipends for families that need support, creating orphanages that are really high-level desirable for people to go to, and the redesign of communities and cities in general to be supporting of families."

The rapper is so committed to reducing abortion rates, that he asked his campaign staff to refrain from "fornicating" outside of marriage, a source told the NY Times.

Kanye's goals also include police reform, reducing household and student loan debt and bringing prayer back into schools.

Kanye West reportedly splashed out a lot of cash on his struggling presidential campaign.

The 43-year-old mega producer and fashion mogul shelled out almost $6 million out of his own pocket to finance his presidential campaign, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The majority of the funds came from a personal loan he made to his campaign, according to a finance report that was filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday.

The "Gold Digger" rapper has spent $5.86 million so far, with most of that money going toward consultation and other fees. He apparently loaned his own campaign more than $6.7 million during July and August.

Other sources of income reveal that Kanye has received small donations from other people supporting his bid for the Oval Office.

The hip-hop star's presence in the race has proven controversial, with Democratic Party officials accusing him of running as a "spoiler candidate" to siphon votes away from their nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden.

In other Kanye news, he is reportedly shopping for a ranch to call his new home in a suburb outside of Atlanta. That's right, Kanye is moving to the Atlanta area!

As you know, Kanye and his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, parted ways 2 years ago after the musician moved to Wyoming.

Kanye, who was born in Atlanta, apparently wants to get as far away from the Kardashian Klan as possible.

Kim Kardashian continues her criminal justice advocacy by demanding "sensible moderate" police reform in the United States.

While the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's estranged husband Kanye West is running for President from his ranch in Wyoming, the reality star, who is raising two sons on her own in Calabasas, is urging her followers to vote yes for police reform on California Senate Bill 731.

BACKGRID

The 39-year-old tweeted: "Right now it's ok if a police officer in California breaks the law while on the job. They cannot be sued for breaking the law. Please vote YES on #SB731 for sensible moderate police reform."

She added. "This will just make police officers accountable if they break the law. Please we are calling for your leadership, @AssemblyDems and @Rendon63rd. #YesOnSB731."

The tweet comes days after police in Kenosha, Wisconsin shot a Black man, Jacob Blake, four times in the back as he leaned into his SUV. He is paralyzed from the waist down and may never walk again.

Kim recently reached a critical point in her marriage to Kanye, after he revealed sensitive private details of their marriage at a campaign rally last month in South Carolina. Kanye told attendees the couple had planned to abort eldest child North West while also ranting about legendary civil rights figure Harriet Tubman.

Kanye's campaign has been plagued with setbacks as he failed to get on the ballot in a majority of states, including his adoptive home of Wyoming as well as his native Illinois, and the key swing state of Wisconsin. He also missed filing deadlines or was rejected in states including California, Florida and Pennsylvania.

The "Gold Digger" rapper is suing Ohio's elections chief after he was denied a spot on the state's ballot.

Kim has asked for sympathy for his worrisome behavior, which she attributes to his battle with bipolar disorder.

Kanye West's chances of challenging President Donald Trump and Joe Biden in the November elections are fading fast.

The mega producer failed to get on the ballot for the U.S. presidential election in his adopted home state of Wyoming.

The rapper missed a Monday deadline to submit signatures for the ballot in Wyoming, USA Today reports. He previously failed to get on the ballot in his native Illinois. But he is willing to spend $500,000 to get his name on the ballot in Arizona.

Kanye moved to Wyoming in 2018, allegedly to put distance between himself and the negative influence of the Kardashian Klan. His estranged wife, Kim Kardashian-West, remained at home in Calabasas, Calif. with their four children.

Kanye announced his decision to run for president on July 4, 2020, Independence Day in America.

After failing to get on the ballot in numerous states, he is pulling out all the stops to get on the ballot in a crucial swing state of Arizona.

According to TMZ, the 3rd-party petitioning group, Let the Voters Decide, is sending upwards of 100 people into Arizona over the next week to try and gather 37,769 names -- the required number to get on the ballot.

According to TheHill.com, Kanye has secured a spot in the key swing state of Minnesota, as well as pop singer Taylor Swift's home state of Tennessee.

He will also be on the ballots in Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Utah and Vermont, but failed to make it in Missouri after submitting just 6,557 of the 10,000 signatures required.

As a third-party candidate who will not appear on the ballot in many states, West has no realistic path to winning the 270 electoral college votes that would send him to The White House - leading to accusations he is running a spoiler campaign to help Trump defeat his opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.

The hip-hop star said in an interview with Forbes earlier this month he is "not denying" that his campaign was meant to divert Democratic votes away from Biden, who helped author the 1994 crime bill that sent thousands of Black men to prison.

Kanye West outraged Muslims after naming his new Yeezy Boost sneaker line after the religious faith's archangels of music and death.

The 43-year-old rap producer has been accused of "disrespecting Islam" by unveiling his new line - the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Israfil and Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Asriel.

"Very disrespectful," one Twitter user wrote. "Adidas is disrespecting Islam. Israfil is one of the four angels in Islam. Shame on @adidasoriginals and @kanyewest."

Another user added: "Dear @Adidas I am gonna STOP buying and using your products if those Kanye West’s newest shoes' names aren’t changed because it IT DOES NOT RESPECT Islam (sic)."

Another critic accused West and Adidas of "making mockery of Islam."

A petition has been launched calling for Adidas bosses to change the name of the leisure shoes.

"Until further notice, we request all Muslims to boycott adidas products, cease all sale of adidas products by any Muslim owned 3rd party retail shops until adidas ceases the production of this commodity," the petition reads.

The sneaker launch comes amid the rap star's unlikely run for the White House. Kanye plans to challenge current U.S. leader Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden for America's top office in November. But his goal is falling short, as more states boot him off their ballots.

Pro-Trump supporters Kanye West and Steve Harvey bonded over lunch at Kanye's favorite fast food restaurant Chik-Fil-A.

Kanye and Steve grabbed lunch at a Chik-Fil-A location in Atlanta on Tuesday, Aug. 18. Kanye posted a snap of Steve on Twitter.com. He captioned the image: "Me and Steve Harvey was hungry."

Steve’s career was nearly canceled 4 years ago when he expressed his support for newly-elected President Donald Trump.

Steve, 63, previously joked about supporting Kanye for president on The Steve Harvey Show. "If Donald Trump wins, I'll go on the ticket with Kanye," he said. "But I gotta tell you, I'm just going for vice president. I'm gonna let Kanye be president."

He continued: "I don't want to b going to all the meetings and everything. I want to be the Joe Biden. I just wanna fire off, just say stuff, just be out there talking. You know Joe Biden just say whatever he wants to say. 'Mr. Harvey?' 'Hell, no!'"
