A lot has happened since Rhymefest tweeted on Saturday morning, claiming that Kanye West had abandoned the Donda's House charitable foundation they co-founded and told him "fuck the youth of Chicago."

Kim Kardashian came to Kanye's defense in a string of tweets that accused Rhymefest of spreading lies, to which Rhymefest responded with a lengthy personal letter of his own

Then, the nonprofit organization announced that they would be changing their name due to the "recent events." An official statement explained, "This has been an incredibly difficult decision but the social media quotes from Kim Kardashian West, as well as the expressed interested of her family running the organization, has brought us to this decision." 

On Sunday afternoon, Kardashian tweeted out another series of messages in an attempt to "break this all the way down" and clear the air about the history of the foundation.

Let me break this all the way down ...

Kanye and Donda started a charity called Loop Dreams. When Donda passed, they changed the name to Donda’s House. Kanye paid Rhymefest a salary to run it.

Kardashian explains that Kanye let Rhymefest take over the foundation when he was going through personal financial troubles with "no financial strings attached."

After several years of lack of performance from the organization and Kanye going through personal financial issues, he could no longer fund salaries. Rhymefest asked to take it over and Kanye agreed with no financial strings attached.

Kardashian argues that it makes no sense for Kanye to be publicly shamed for not being involved with an organization that he handed over to Rhymefest years ago. Specifically, she's upset that he's using Kanye's mother's name to do the shaming.

Kanye gave his “friend” an opportunity to run an organization on his own. So now that Kanye is being publicly shamed for not being involved makes no sense and, at this exact time, just seems very calculated.

I have and will always applaud any efforts to give back to the community. To fight for justice and to help uplift the youth. But I will never tolerate someone who was close to Kanye who attempts to use his late mother’s name to publicly shame him while pretending to do good.

As she's already done multiple times this year, Kardashian shows she's always ready to stand up in defense of Kanye.

I will always ride for my man!

Rhymefest and Donda's House have yet to publicly respond to Kardashian's latest wave of tweets.
