She had the pills in her hand.”

He said that he and Kim were “in the [Paris] apartment where my wife was actually robbed” when “the screen went black and white and God said, ‘If you f— with my vision, I’m gonna f— with yours.

He added, “Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world.”

After the rally, people on social media showed some concern for Kanye’s mental health.

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, this was the strongest dude I’ve ever met!”

But I guess even flying Super Heros have to land eventually. But I am certain that your energy will never die and your Spirit is eternal, so I ask you still to forgive me for letting you down Warrior. I can’t help but think if I wasnt so engulfed in my own bullsh*t I could’ve been there for you when you finally took your life after several attempts… F*ck this place!! #CantWin #ForLosing🙏

TOXIC ELLEN? One current and 10 former employees are claiming that Ellen DeGeneres creates a “toxic” environment on her eponymous show. They told BuzzFeed that her “be kind” message “only happens when the cameras are on.” Executive producers Ed GlavinMary Connelly and Andy Lassnerresponded to the allegations in a joint statement to the website, saying, “Over the course of nearly two decades, 3,000 episodes and employing over 1,000 staff members, we have strived to create an open, safe and inclusive work environment. We are truly heartbroken and sorry to learn that even one person in our production family has had a negative experience. It’s not who we are and not who we strive to be, and not the mission Ellen has set for us. For the record, the day-to-day responsibility of the Ellen show is completely on us. We take all of this very seriously and we realize, as many in the world are learning, that we need to do better, are committed to do better and we will do better.”
