Amid the frenzy created by Kanye West‘s new controversial music video, “Eazy,” Kim seemingly sent a message defending her new man.
Kanye West Makes Scary Music Video About Pete Davidson
On Wednesday, Kanye dropped the music video to his song “Eazy,” where he sings about being saved from an accident in order to beat the comedian’s “a**.” While Ye has done nothing but show his disdain for his estranged wife’s new lover, the music video takes things to a whole new level.
The Clay Animation clip shows Kanye riding on a four-wheeler motorcycle to a destination where he kidnaps and captures a plasticine figure that looks eerily like the “SNL” comedian.
He ties Davidson’s character to the back of the four-wheeler and drives to an abandoned location where he buries him alive with his head out in the open. Ye’s character then brings out rose seeds and sprinkles them all over Davidson’s character.
Soon, the roses grow, and Ye harvests them while a devastated Davidson watches. Finally, the rapper loads them into a pickup truck, reminiscent of the truckload of roses he gifted Kim on Valentine’s Day amid their split.
The music clip hasn’t been well received by many who think the Yeezy founder has gone too far this time. Per reports, friends of Davidson are bothered by the gruesome clip, calling it “for real, really scary.”
The close source shared that “The King of Staten Island” star isn’t a regular on social media, so he is mostly unaware of the things being said about him.
Kim Kardashian Likes Tweet About Davidson’s Positive Behaviors
Amid the controversy sparked by Ye’s music video, many have come out to defend Davidson. One of such people was director James Gunn who worked with the comedian on 2021’s “The Suicide Squad.”
Gunn took to Twitter to shower praises on Davidson’s character, writing, “For the record, Pete Davidson is one of the nicest, sweetest guys I know. A truly generous, tender & funny spirit, he treats everyone around him with respect.”
The tweet has since received 36,000 likes, one of which belonged to Kim. As you might know, Kim and Davidson became an item shortly after her October 2021 appearance at “Saturday Night Live.”
The now-lovebirds shared a playful kiss on-screen during a hilarious skit, but it raised no eyebrows. Kanye was also in the audience during the show and reportedly played a huge role in getting the mother of his kids prepared to be a successful “SNL” host.
The SKIMS Founder Is Legally Single
Ye’s latest stunt comes a day after the court ruled on his and Kim’s divorce status and legally declared them both as single.
On Wednesday, as The Blast reported, Kim and Kanye battled it out at a Los Angeles court, hashing out an agreement to make them legally divorced as they continue to sort through their custody and financial issues.

Kim joined the court via Zoom while Kanye was absent but represented by his new and fourth lawyer Samantha Spector. As we covered, Kim initially filed to be legally single, but Kanye opposed her petition, citing certain conditions that need to be fulfilled before he agrees.
During the court hearing, Kim, who divorce lawyer Laura Wesser represented, agreed to some of the conditions and was granted permission to remove “West” from her name.
Before the hearing, Ye had seemingly hinted that he wouldn’t fight the divorce process anymore via a statement that read, “I’ve asked my team to expedite the dissolution of my marriage to Kim so I can put my entire attention into our beautiful children.”
While Kim and Kanye are legally divorced, the battle is far from over. The estranged couple still has to negotiate for the custody of their four kids alongside other financial issues.
However, the custody of the kids might pose a big issue given that Ye has already publicly accused Kim of keeping him away from the kids. He has also lashed out about Kim allowing their eldest daughter North on TikTok without his permission.
