Amid partnership contract endings and brand negotiations, kanye-west He has compared his latest separation to that of England and the late Queen Elizabeth II… or so it seems.
Earlier in the morning, Ye, the musician’s legal name since October 2021, posted a cryptic message on Instagram stories that read “LONDON I KNOW HOW IT FEEL LIKE I LOST MY QUEEN TOO.” The message seems to go hand in hand with another image shared by the designer, where he shared an image of his ex-wife and mother of his four children, Kim Kardashian.
The A-list duo split earlier this year, ending their marriage of eight years. Since then, West has used social media as a defense mechanism as well as a way to communicate with the Kardashians, causing even more uproar regarding the couple’s divorce.
West’s past decisions regarding social media exposure have led people to believe that the cryptic (mourning?) message aimed at the late Queen Elizabeth II was directed at Kardashian himself, indicating that West still has to get over their separation. However, Reddit seems to believe otherwise.
Several users on the WestSubEver subreddit have shared their own thoughts on the singer’s posted story, affirming his immediate connection to West’s late mother, Donda, who passed away in 2007 after complications during bypass surgery. Fans of the singer seem to think the Donda connection makes more sense than the Kardashians, as West has been incredibly open over the years about the mental health impact of his mother’s passing.
In August 2021, West released his 10th studio album called “Donda”, as a tribute to his late mother, and the 2008 album “808s and Heartbreak” has also reportedly been linked to her passing.
It is impossible to determine with certainty whether the Instagram story is directed at Kim Kardashian or her mother. However, one can hope that, in Ye’s usual fashion, this isn’t the last we hear of the singer’s mourning passage, be it for Queen Elizabeth II or otherwise.
