Kim Kardashian defends Kanye from collaborator’s claim he ‘abandoned’ charity

Kim Kardashian became embroiled in a Twitter spat with Kanye West’s collaborator Rhymefest on Saturday night after he accused the rapper of abandoning his Chicago charity.

Kanye co-founded the non-profit organization Donda’s House, which aims to help the youth in his hometown of Chicago, with Rhymefest in 2011 following the death of his beloved mom.

But on Saturday Rhymefest, real name Che Smith, took to Twitter to blast Kanye, claiming he had “abandoned” the charity.

In a series of tweets he claimed the rapper, who is married to Kim, had said “f–k the youth of Chicago.”

He also appealed to fellow rapper Drake for money to help keep the charity going.

In response a furious Kim took to Twitter to slam his allegations, claiming she had seen him just a few weeks ago and he had failed to raise any issues.

She ranted:  “U haven’t been right since u got kicked out of the studio in Hawaii wearing fake Yeezy’s @RHYMEFEST You’re over levergenging Kanye’s name & asked Kanye to donate money to u so stop w your fake community politics & lies. Truth is you haven’t been able to sustain the foundation (sic),”

“I saw you at our studio a few weeks ago so why didn’t you bring this up then @RHYMEFEST ? You were trying to get Kanye to listen to your sub par beats.”

“You have the audacity to use Kanye’s mom name to try to shead a negative light on Kanye… You better believe I will make it my mission to take Donda’s House from you and let my children run it the way it should be run! (sic)”

Shortly after her outburst Donda’s House released a statement, revealing they were going to cease using the name Donda’s House for the charity.

It read: “Due to recent events that have occurred over the last 48 hours, we have decided to no longer use the name Donda’s House Inc. This has been an incredibly difficult decision but the social media quotes from Kim Kardashian West, as well as the expressed interest of her family running the organisation, has brought us to this decision.”

“Over the last five years we have put our students and our community first. We’d like to thank all of our supporters and we assure you that our hearts have always been with the City of Chicago and we will continue to support youth in our future endeavors.”

“We encourage Kim and Kanye to indeed pick up the baton of service.”
Rhymefest also posted his own statement responding to her allegations, claiming she had never even visited or talked to any of the team.
