- As he performed alongside Drake at the “Free Larry Hoover” benefit event on Thursday night, the hip-hop singer made a public plea to his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, to “run straight back to me.”
Kanye West hasn’t given up on the possibility of mending his marriage.
As he performed alongside Drake at the “Free Larry Hoover” benefit event on Thursday night, the hip-hop singer made a public plea to his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, to “run straight back to me.”
The event, held in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and live-streamed on Amazon’s Prime Video, was designed to raise awareness of prison and sentencing reform, specifically the case of Larry Hoover.
West and Drake have been campaigning to release the co-founder of Chicago’s Gangster Disciples gang, who was convicted of murder in 1973 and is now serving six life sentences in a Colorado supermax prison.
During a performance of his song “Runaway,” West decided to detour from the core purpose of the concert and make a bid to win back his wife.
West rapped, “I need you to run right back to me,” adding a new verse to the song. “Kimberly, in particular.”
West’s gesture elicited a massive response from the audience, considering it was his first major performance in five years.
Kardashian and West filed for divorce in February, seven years after they married in a spectacular wedding in Italy.
The “Gold Digger” singer’s amorous confession comes after stating that he was still hoping for a reconciliation a few weeks ago.
During an appearance on an edition of the podcast “Drink Champs,” West, who is now legally known as Ye, discussed the breakdown of his marriage last month.
“I ain’t never even seen the paperwork; we’re not even divorced,” he claimed, referring to Kardashian as his wife.
He said, ” “My children wish for their parents to remain together. I’d like… for us to be together.”
Kardashian is rumored to be dating “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson, while a source close to Kardashian told CNN that the two are taking things slowly.
“They’re simply getting to know each other,” the person explained. “She’s taking things extra easy because this is her first date since filing for divorce.”
