Kanye West continued to make a statement on Friday as he unfollowed Kim Kardashian again on Instagram in the midst of her rumored romance with Pete Davidson.
A search for the mega-famous reality star’s name in his ‘following’ count draws a blank, however he did claim ‘she’s still my wife’ in a Thursday podcast interview and maintained ‘I want us to be together.’
‘Ye’ last unfollowed Kim in September as he made a point to only follow accounts with a blacked out profile photo, but sent her a ‘follow’ once she changed her profile picture to the same aesthetic as well.
What gives? Kanye West unfollowed Kim Kardashian again on Instagram in the midst of her reported tryst with Pete Davidson, but claimed her as ‘still my wife’ in a Thursday podcast interview
Kim’s profile photo had remained black to match West’s for a few weeks before she changed it to a promotional image for her Saturday Night Live debut last month, but he still followed her up until Friday November 4.
Though it is unclear what motivated the outlandish 44-year-old rapper to hit ‘unfollow’ for the second time in two months, the social media move came amid Kim’s reported back-to-back dates with SNL funnyman Pete Davidson, 27.
This week the SKIMS founder flew from Los Angeles to New York City for four days and is said to have spent two of the evenings with Davidson, even making the trek to Staten Island for one.
On the evening of November 2, he reportedly romanced her at his go-to Italian spot Campania’s in his native borough where he ‘arranged a dinner on the rooftop privately’ for ‘just the two of them.’

Kim was photographed heading to a waiting SUV ahead of the hangout and DailyMail.com obtained photos of a hefty bouquet of red roses arriving to the Ritz Carlton before she left.
Security was not present during their ‘romantic date’ and they were said to have left through the back door of the establishment.
Sources said that the pair had ‘chemistry’ and that overall Kim was ‘intrigued’ by Pete.
And the duo kept the fun going on November 3 when they dined with a group for Kardashian BFF Simon Huck’s birthday at the exclusive members club Zero Bond.
A source told Page Six: ‘They were smiling and laughing a lot and seemed genuinely affectionate with each other…But there was no Kravis-style PDA.’

It was also added that in the same vein of their first date ‘Nobody else in the venue saw [Kim and Pete] as her security stood outside the private room ‘the entire time’.
‘She was happy and smiley,’ an insider said, and while Kim exited through the front of Zero Bond, Pete opted to go through a back door.
And a source close to Kim exclusively told DailyMail.com that Davidson is ‘very aggressive’ with her as he often ‘grabs her waist, compliments her butt and touches her hair’ when they are together.
‘He is extremely sexual and in her face. He is making it crystal clear he likes her,’ the confidant said. ‘He definitely is not being aloof or playing coy, he is just going for it. And she seems to be loving the attention. It’s nice to see her happy.’

Holding out hope: ‘My kids want their parents to stay together. I want … us to be together,’ he continued to say
Famously the pair had shared a kiss during an Aladdin skit on SNL and a source told Us Weekly that he made the first move and that ‘Kim could tell right away what the big fuss is about Pete.’.
‘He was a true professional the whole time they rehearsed and in between takes but afterward things got flirty. They exchanged numbers and Pete asked if Kim would like to hang out sometime, which she agreed to straight away.’
On Thursday the Donda rapper opened up about his situation with his estranged wife during an appearance on the Drink Champs podcast.
He divulged that he had never ‘even seen’ divorce papers, and expressed hope of them getting back together while taking a dig at her SNL monologue.
‘SNL making my wife say, “I divorced him” on TV because they just wanted to get that bar off. And I ain’t never even seen the papers; we’re not even divorced. That ain’t no joke to me. My kids want their parents to stay together. I want … us to be together.’
