On Sunday (Feb 8) Azealia Banks criticizes Kanye West‘s behavior toward Kim Kardashian and North West on social media. 

Kanye and are at odds over their 8-year-old daughter North's choice to have a TikTok account, which the rapper has openly stated he dislikes. 

While Kim Kardashian has defended her decision to allow her daughter to use the video-sharing platform, female rapper has accused Ye of publicly tormenting his daughter North with his word. 

In a post on Bank's Instagram story on Sunday, she slammed Kanye and Kim Kardashian's relationship. 

has been called an “abusive sociopath” by Azealia Banks, who spoke out about his public parenting spat with divorced wife Kim Kardashian. 


Banks opened her message by saying “Y'all are making way too many excuses for Kanye. This is the second time he has publicly bullied North West. First with the abortion sh***, and now putting her on blast on his Instagram page as if she's some sort of criminal.” 

“Kanye had no problem with that magazine cover where North had on a f*cking belly top and purple eyeliner with her little buds showing thru the shirt, he thought it was . You all said nothing.” 

Ye has previously spoken openly about his struggles with bipolar disorder but Banks said in her lengthy Instagram post that West's issues extended beyond that. 

“Aside from the fact that he's making it his business to try and wreck the mental health of the only person around to care for his children (their mother) while he galavants the streets with dirty industry interns, druggy s*** bags, eating dirty steaks at Les dive bars, and is clearly having rapid opioid/heroin comedown/withdrawal-type outburst, y'all wanna call it a mental health issue.” 


“I have never once seen Kanye have this much smoke for any of his male adversaries. This is p**** deadbeat abusive black man shit and all you n***** trying to keep the cycle of plantation-style shaming and embarrassing young black children for being kids, are what the f*** is wrong with this toxic a** .” 

Banks then brought up West's claim that his ex-wife Kim tried to abduct their daughter Chicago by failing to provide him the address to her 4th birthday party last week. The rapper also revealed Ye's current relationship with actress Julia Fox. 

“Trying to accuse a mother of kidnapping her own child ???? Was Chicago supposed to be hanging out with him and Julia's horrible cool sculpting while they get drunk and high so Julia can blow vape pen smoke in Chicago's face?” 

“North is most likely using TikTok to avoid the conflict between her parents”, said Banks. 


Banks message: “Maybe North is looking for a fun escape because she has to look online and see her dumb a** dad always talking s*** about her mother and when Kim won't give him the attention he begs for he turns his anger on her by posting her picture to his Instagram, talking about ‘his will' as if she is a f****** piece of property and not a young Black girl just trying to be happy. 

“For f**** sake. Kanye West is an abusive psychopath, it's beyond mental illness,” Banks wrote. “Stop trying to help him and start trying to help the poor child that he keeps on trying to embarrass and abuse publicly to garner sympathy for his ashy a**.” 

Kim Kardashian defended her choice to let North use the internet over the weekend, saying Kanye's “continuous assaults” on her on social media and in interviews were “really more harmful than any TikTok North would create.” 

In a statement, Kim said: “As the parent who is the main provider and caregiver for our children, I am doing my best to protect our daughter while also allowing her to express her creativity in the medium that she wishes with adult supervision because it brings her happiness.” 


Kim added, “Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye's obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all. From the beginning, I have wanted nothing but a healthy and supportive co-parenting relationship because it is what is best for our children and it saddens me that Kanye continues to make it impossible every step of the way.” 

is also making it clear that there have been many other co-parenting issues, some of which haven't surfaced publicly. 

Kanye responded to her statement on Instagram: “What do you mean by the main provider? America saw you try to kidnap my daughter on her birthday by not providing the address. 

“You put security on me inside of the house to play with my son then accused me of stealing I had to take a drug test after Chicago's party cause you accused me of being on drugs.”  


All Kanye West's Instagram postings directed against Kim have recently been removed. 

After almost seven years of marriage, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West in February 2021. Kanye made several public declarations when Kim began dating comedian that he wanted her back.
