Kanye West has claimed Pete Davidson is dead in a cruel Instagram prank amid rumours he’s back with Kim Kardashian.
The rapper, 45, shared a screenshot of a fake newspaper front page with the headline “Skete Davidson dead at age 28” on Instagram on Monday, reports The US Sun.
The photo was a mock-up of the New York Times and was dated Monday, August 8 2022.
West has been using the nickname “Skete” for Davidson, 28, for months.
The musician – who has four kids with Kardashian. – repeatedly targeted Davidson on social media after he began dating Kardashian in October.
He called Davidson a “d**khead”, threatened to “beat his a**” and accused the actor of trying to “destroy” his family in various rants.
West’s latest post comes just days after it was revealed that Davidson and Kardashian have split following nine months of dating.
The Kardashians star and former SNL funnyman have broken up, and decided to just be friends, E! News reported late last week.
A source said: “They have a lot of love and respect for each other but found that the long distance and their demanding schedules made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”
An insider later claimed Kardashian broke up with Davidson because she was “totally exhausted” by his “immaturity” and their 13-year age gap.
The split occurred sometime last week, according to the site.
Davidson has been spending part of the summer in Australia working on his new movie, David Michôd’s comedy Wizards!
The split comes amid rumours that Kardashian and West have reconciled.
They have four kids together – North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.
The SKIMS founder filed for divorce from the rapper in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage.
However, Kardashian has seemingly dropped several hints recently that the two may be back on.
Earlier this month, she wore white bikini bottoms, and a matching white top that says “The Incredibles.”
Fans pointed out that West once talked about his love for the Disney movie, The Incredibles, during an interview on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Kardashian has also taken to wearing clothes from West s label Yeezy again.
Just last week, she posed with their daughters North and Chicago while all three of them wore Yeezy sunglasses.
They rocked black leather outfits and matching silver oversized shades in the series of selfies and photos.
One wrote: “YEEZY SHADES I’M TELLING YOU THEY’RE BACK.”
