Kanye West says seeing former Kim Kardashian in Balenciaga campaign is ‘bittersweet’ but ‘awesome’

Kanye West admitted he had “bittersweet” feelings about his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s new Balenciaga campaign in an Instagram post on Thursday.

The 44-year-old rapper shared a photo from Times Square in Manhattan showing several billboards of the monumental Kardashian in various outfits from the Spanish fashion house, but deleted it after about an hour.

Kanye also added that the show was “amazing,” making his post a rare positive note about his ex amid a slew of posts making fun of her boyfriend, Pete Davidson, and revealing what appears to be her personal interaction with the hitmaker.

Mixed feelings: Kanye West, 44, said it was “bittersweet” to see his ex Kim Kardashian on several Balenciaga billboards in Manhattan’s Times Square in an Instagram post from Thursday.

The former both have a rocky relationship with Balenciaga as Kardashian became the face of the brand, while West is also a heavy wearer of the brand and last month announced a collaboration with the brand for his current Gap line.

The photo posted by West shows previously released images of his ex wearing a leopard-print long coat over a black bodysuit and black leather boots adorned with multiple buckles.

Another billboard showed her reclining on a couch wearing a black bodysuit, high black boots, and a bright green purse.

In another image, the reality TV star was also seen standing in the hallway wearing a black coat and carrying a white bag.

The photos were taken by photographer Steph Mitchell at the Kardashian home in Calabasas, which she shared with her ex-husband.

Confusing: West also wrote that it was

Confusing: West also wrote that it was “amazing” and offered “all the positive energy,” but it was unclear if he was happy for the 41-year-old Kardashian or his fashion partner Balenciaga; seen January 23 in Paris

This Balenciaga ad campaign premiered today in Times Square. I know you will understand that this is bittersweet for me,” he wrote in the caption, adding, “This is amazing. All positive energy.

It wasn’t clear from the campaign that a more positive end to his signature wished for the “positive energy” of his ex or the fashion house he’s partnered with.

In January, he announced a campaign called Yeezy Gap Engineered by Balenciaga, followed a few days later by his video Heaven And Hell, which premiered during a college football national championship game that aired on ESPN.

“It’s a vision come true to work with Gap and Demna, creative director of Balenciaga, to make an incredible product available to everyone at any time,” the Flashing Lights hitmaker told Vogue after announcing the deal on Instagram.

The collaboration is expected to end in the June issue, with a second set of issues coming later in 2022, and the video showed several masked figures and black hoodies that are part of the West’s Gap collaboration.

Both West and the Kardashians have long been Balenciaga fans and sported the fashion house’s cheeky designs, but their relationship has intensified in the past year, even after the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star filed for divorce in January 2021.

Kim subsequently wore a striking black full-face bodysuit from the brand to the Met Gala in September, and she wore a hot pink Balenciaga suit when she competed on Saturday Night Live in October.

Since then, both have continued to represent the fashion house, with Kanye even dressing his ex-girlfriend Julia Fox in his clothes.

Perhaps West’s warm comment about his ex comes as he continues to post tongue-in-cheek posts about her boyfriend Pete Davidson on Instagram, as well as posts clearly revealing his private conversations with her.

The Monster rapper recently appeared to have reached a turning point when he admitted in a post that was deleted that his behavior towards his ex was “disturbing” while he also vowed to “take responsibility.”

Those words seemed to soon be forgotten as the hitmaker returned to attacking Pete on social media.

On Thursday, he posted a picture of the comedian wearing a red “Do Kanye Again 2006” cap, modeled after the MAGA cap he wore to show his support for former President Donald Trump.

In the original Weekend Update comedy sketch, Pete also made fun of Kanye for not taking his “medicine”.

“Hey skit, do you have any other mental health jokes?” The rapper, who suffers from bipolar disorder, signed his antagonistic post.

No Respite: Despite admitting that his behavior towards Kim was

No Respite: Despite admitting that his behavior towards Kim was “disturbing,” Kanye recently returned to attacking his beau Pete Davidson on Instagram.

Kanye subsequently posted a photo of SNL creator Lorne Michaels, suggesting he was “next” to the ridicule, as well as a post criticizing gossip blogger Perez Hilton.

“Perez, I have a question directly for you. Do you find mental health jokes funny?” he wrote before deleting his entire feed.

But he returned to posting later Thursday and included a new post by Perez, this time mentioning him by his birth name, Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr.

Pete returned to Instagram on Wednesday after being off the platform for a while, and fans were surprised to see Kanye following his account despite constant harassment and mocking posts.

Pete and Kim have been dating since last November, shortly after they appeared together during her SNL debut in October.

During this episode, they kissed for the first time in a sketch inspired by Disney’s Aladdin.

Kim previously filed for divorce from Kanye in February 2021, after almost seven years of marriage.

Among Kanye’s recent posts was an apparent screenshot of a text message from Kim criticizing him for repeatedly attacking Pete, which she feared could escalate into violence.

She told her ex that he “creates a dangerous and frightening environment and someone will hurt Pete and it will be all your fault,” later adding, “There are dangerous people out there and it’s scary and it shouldn’t be.”

But he didn’t seem to care, as he continued to escalate the situation by sharing a screenshot of a text in which Kim looked annoyed when she asked why he couldn’t keep their conversations private.

In February 2021, Kardashian filed for divorce from West after nearly seven years of marriage. The former couple has four children: North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two.
