The rapper made a string of controversial comments as he kicked off his 2020 Presidential campaign at North Charleston’s Exquis Event Center in South Carolina.
Kanye is thought to have upset his wife after a number of things he said about their children and her family – including him pushing her to abort her first pregnancy.
Kim hasn’t posted on social media for three days – a move that’s highly unusual for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
One of the most controversial things that Kanye said was that he originally wanted to abort the couple’s eldest daughter North, seven.
“I almost killed my daughter,” he screamed during his rally.
“My mom saved my life, my dad wanted to abort me. My mom saved my life, there would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy.”
Breaking down in tears, he cried: “I almost killed my daughter! I almost killed my daughter.
“She said she was pregnant, and for one month and two months and three months we talked about her not having this child.
“She had the pills in her hand. People know these pills where you take the pills and if you take it, it’s a wrap, the baby’s gone.”
Kanye said he was in the Paris apartment where his wife was robbed when he got a message from God, who told him: “If you f**k up my vision, I’m going to f**k up yours.”
He went on: “And I called my wife and she said, ‘We’re gonna have this baby’ and I said, ‘We’re gonna have this child’.”
Kanye also told the crowd that he’d be content if Kim ever divorced him because she gave him North.
He said: “In the Bible, it says, ‘Thou shall not kill’. I remember that my girlfriend called me screaming and crying, and I was just thinking, because at that time I was a rapper I was out there, different girlfriends and everything… and she said, ‘I’m pregnant’, and I said, ‘Yes!’ And then I said, ‘Uh oh’.”
He added: “Even if my wife wants to divorce me after this speech she brought North into the world even when I didn’t want to.
“She stood up and she protected that child.”
Kim was reportedly left furious by his comments about North and is said to have urged Kanye to keep their personal life out of his political ambitions.
Kanye later appeared to take a huge dig at the Kardashian family by claiming that the movie Get Out is about his life in a serious of tweets he’s since deleted.
He compared his life to the 2017 horror movie, which follows a young African-American man who goes to meet his white girlfriend’s parents for the first time.
Although the family seem normal at first, the main character soon discovers that he’s been lured there on purpose as the family transplants their brains into other people’s bodies, giving them a form of immortality.
Kanye tweeted: “Everybody knows the movie get out is about me.
“Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about my daughter’s life yesterday.”
A source told PEOPLE : “Kim is shocked that Kanye spoke about North at the rally.
“She is furious that he shared something so private.”
As well as North, the couple also share Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, 14 months.
Kanye also took aim at his wife’s appearance in Playboy magazine and called for her mum Kris Jenner to get in touch with him.
Kanye’s fans become worried as he taunted the famous family before suggesting they were about to perform an intervention on him.
He tweeted: “Kriss and Kim call me now”.
He added: “Kriss don’t play with me you and that calmye are not allowed around my children Ya’ll tried to lock me up”.
He also shared a screenshot of an unread message he sent to Kris, captioning it: “Still avoiding my calls”.
Kanye also wrote: “If I get locked up like Mandela Ya’ll will know why.”
Kanye later hinted he was quitting his Presidential race following the controversy, telling fans he was going to “focus on the music now”.
He revealed his new album DONDA will be released on Friday.
