UPDATED 4/4, 11:35 a.m.: Kanye’s newly hired head of media and partnerships, Jason Lee of Hollywood Unlocked, issued a statement of denial.
“Ye monitors all headlines pertaining to him and his family daily. Most all are being fed to media by ‘sources close to the Kardashians,’ which have been creating a false narrative that not only is untrue but further compromises his goal of creating a healthy environment for the beautiful children he shares with Kim. He’s been focused on taking care of himself, being a present and loving father and a creative genius well before all the false headlines we’ve seen as recent. … If you don’t hear it from his mouth, read it from his social media, or get it from a press release he approved it’s simply false,” Lee told Yahoo.

It seems Kanye West is attempting to right his wrongs.
According to Page Six, the 44-year-old artist has informed Kim Kardashian of his plans to “go away to get help,” following a series of concerning and questionable antics. Insiders say Ye has also agreed to stop targeting his estranged wife on social media, and will no longer cyberbully her current boyfriend, Pete Davidson.
“For the sake of the kids, Kanye has told Kim he’s not making any public appearances or inflammatory social media statements,” a source told the outlet, adding “he will go away somewhere to get better.”
Over the past several months, Kanye has targeted Kardashian through his Instagram, claiming she wouldn’t allow him to see their four children; attempted to kidnap their oldest child, North; and went so far as to accuse him of “putting a hit out on her.”
Ye also took aim at Davidson, who began dating Kardashian less than a year after she announced her split with Kanye. The Donda rapper repeatedly ripped Davidson over distasteful jokes and rumors involving his past relationship with Ariana Grande. He also threatened to “beat Pete Davidson’s ass” in The-Game-assisted track “Eazy.” The song was accompanied by a claymation video that depicts Kanye burying Davidson alive and carrying his severed head.
“Art is therapy just like this view,” Kanye wrote in defense of the video. “Art is protected as freedom of speech.”
Earlier this month, Instagram announced it had suspended Kanye after he used a racial slur against Trevor Noah, who had previously expressed concerns over Ye’s behavior during an episode of the Daily Show. The platform announced Kanye had been locked out of his account for 24 hours due to violations of its harassment policy. There are currently no posts on his Instagram.
It remains unclear whether Kanye will enter a mental health program. A rep for the rapper told Page Six he’s “committed to a healthy co-parenting relationship with Kim and is and focused on raising their beautiful children.”
A rep for Kanye declined to comment on the report from Page Six, and shared the following statement with Complex: “At this time, Ye is committed to a healthy co-parenting relationship with Kim and is and focused on raising their beautiful children.”
