Kanye West deletes bizarre Pete Davidson post after Kim Kardashian plea

Kanye West has removed a disturbing Instagram post in which he said that Pete Davidson – or Skete – was dead.

The Praise God rapper left many shocked earlier today when he uploaded a photo on the platform in response to ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s split from the Saturday Night Live comedian.

In the now-deleted post, the 45-year-old shared a screenshot of a fake New York Times page, with a headline reading: ‘Skete Davidson dead at age 28.’

A message at the bottom added: ‘Kid Cudi meant to play funeral but fearful of bottle throwers.’

After it was revealed that Kim, 41, had begged her ex-husband to take the offending picture down, it has now been removed.

Instead, a message on the Grammy-winner’s page simply states: ‘No posts yet’.

Although Kim – who split with Pete, 28, last week – did not share her thoughts on Ye’s post publicly, an insider told Metro.co.uk that this was not the case behind the scenes.

‘Kim has tried to get Kanye to take it down and has vigorously defended Pete,’ a source said.

‘She very much cares for him and will continue to defend him.’

This has also put paid to any speculation that the former power couple, who share four children together, could soon reunite.

‘She’ll never get back together with Kanye over the way he’s treated the people she loves and respects,’ a source insisted to DailyMail.com.

‘She has tried incredibly hard to have a good co-parenting situation for the children.

‘She won’t stand for this type of behavior from him.’

Kim and Kanye walked down the aisle in 2014, but it wasn’t to last and the Skims businesswoman filed for divorce last February.

Following their marriage ending, she publicly moved on with Pete – after the couple shared a kiss on SNL in October.

Ye begged for his ex-wife back and later voiced his disapproval of Kete on social media, in explicit rants on social media.

However, after taking time out of the spotlight, it was thought that things between Kim and Kanye were friendly once again, with a source sharing how well they had been ‘co-parenting’ their brood – North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

Kim and Pete went their separate ways last week, with news of their break-up emerging on Friday.

Those close to the pair claimed that their 13-year age gap and their busy schedules were the reason behind the romance ending.
