The Kanye West drama continues, and somehow, Chrissy Teigen is still involved. We know Teigen and her husband, John Legend, are very close with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, making some of West’s personal business Teigen’s personal business, too. It seems like she recently stepped in hot water when she unintentionally got in the middle of the beef between West and Donda’s House co-founder, Rhymefest, on Twitter. However, our main girl now knows she messed up. Chrissy Teigen’s apology for her tweet is an effort to explain her actions and defend herself from angry followers.
To understand why fans were upset with Teigen you’ve gotta understand what happened with Rhymefest. If you’re like me, you might be furiously Googling “who or what is Rhymefest?” Rhymefest is a hip-hop artist who co-founded Donda’s House with Ye (and served as a co-writer on Kanye’s classic “Jesus Walks”). Named after West’s late mother, Donda’s House “provides unprecedented access and education from leading experts in the arts, culture & entertainment industry to Chicago’s creative youth.”
As you might recall, Kanye West recently went on one of his infamous Twitter rants in which he showed support for Donald Trump, causing loads of controversy. Following West’s word vomit, Donda’s House issued a statement distancing itself from the rapper. The statement said:
While we cannot and do not speak for Kanye West and his views, we can and will speak up for the youth that we serve… We ask that those who feel hurt, angered by or frustrated with Kanye West not penalize or throw away their support, respect and advocacy for us… We ask that as you boycott and protest Kanye West, that you not forget that we are a non-profit organization that like other non-profits needs donations, corporate support and volunteers.
OK, OK, OK. Now I’m going to bring up Drake.
Around the time of the Donda’s House statement, Drake posted an invoice to West’s record label, G.O.O.D. Music, citing a fee of $100,000 dollars for “promotional assistance and career reviving.” In response, Rhymefest tweeted a Drake saying “when G.O.O.D. Music sends the money they owe you, will you please help us rebuild Kanye’s mother’s house for the youth of Chicago. I spoke to Kanye about it. His response was ‘f*ck the youth of Chicago.'”
