Kanye West is ‘releasing all grudges’ after the death of Queen Elizabeth II

The death of Queen Elizabeth II appears to have inspired Kanye West to turn over a new leaf and put a hold on his many grudges.

The 45-year-old rapper took to his Instagram account in the early morning hours of Friday to announce that he was ‘releasing all grudges’ in a text post, while adding photos of the Queen to suggest her death had inspired him.

His vow to let bygones be bygones comes as he has sniped at his ex-wife Kim Kardashian — as well as the brands Adidas and Gap — in recent weeks.

Kanye’s post came in the form of one of his now-standard text posts, which he didn’t bother captioning.

‘Life is precious,’ he wrote. ‘Releasing all grudges today. Leaning into the light.’

He followed up the brief text with a black-and-white photo of the late Queen in her youth, along with a colorized closeup of her gazing off to the side.

The post was Ye’s second attempt at leaving his grudges behind, as an earlier since-deleted version including the same text, along with an additional sentence listing those he has beefed with recently: ‘Best wishes and blessings to Pete [Davidson] [Kid] Cudi Daniel Cheery [sic],’ he originally wrote, according to that TMJ.

Notably, the Monster rapper did not include his ex-wife Kim, although most of his posts terrorizing her have been about other issues, such as where their four children will go to school.

Queen Elizabeth died on Thursday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland at the age of 96. A cause was not announced by the royal family.

Her son Charles was elevated to the throne as King Charles III following her death.

‘The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family,’ he said in a statement.

‘We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.’

Earlier on Thursday, it was announced that she was under medical supervision after her physicians became ‘concerned’ about her condition.

Elizabeth, who was born in 1926, ascended to the throne and reigned longer than any other British monarch.

Kanye’s attempts to tone down his online vitriol come after he showed his devotion to his children in a photo posted to Instagram on Wednesday.

In the photo, he was seen embracing North, nine; Saint, six; Chicago, four; and Psalm, three.

He captioned the shot, ‘Some things are bigger than money. My kids have no idea what daddy has gone through these past few days alone to secure the brand that will one day be handed down to them God Willing.

‘These future leaders will never back down to be stolen from and forced to compromise who they are for the check.’

His post arrived amid public feuding with Adidas over claims that the brand had copied his ideas and style from his Yeezy shoes and sandals with its recent footwear.

He has received public support on social media from the producer Swizz Beatz and Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs.

In recent days, Kanye has pretended that the Adidas CEO Kasper Rørsted had died with a fake New York Times front page, although he is still alive.

However, he seemed to suggest a thawing of relations even before Queen Elizabeth’s death inspired him, as he urged his followers to tone down their attacks on Adidas CCO Alasdhair Willis on Tuesday.

He has also been duking it out with the brand’s SVP/General Manager, Daniel Cherry, who was among the people he planned to settle his feuds with.

Kanye’s longest-running feud has been with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, who wasn’t mentioned in the earlier version of his post.

Since she began dating former SNL star Pete Davidson shortly after she made her debut hosting the show in October of last year, Kanye has attacked her and the comedian relentlessly via his Instagram page.

Among the collateral damage was his relationship with fellow rapper Kid Cudi, also among those he wants to end his differences with.

Cudi’s son appeared to be his ongoing friendship with Davidson, which caused West to lash out at him in several posts. Cudi, who has appeared on many of the Flashing Lights rapper’s albums, vowed not to work with him again due to the posts.

Although Kanye appeared to have toned down his posting about Kim and Pete in the final weeks of their relationship, he poured salt on the wound after their breakup was reported by posting another fake New York Times front page with a joking obituary headline for Davidson after the breakup, although he is alive and well.

Kanye’s latest online sparring with Kim was over where their children would go to school, as he didn’t want them to attend the elite private school his ex-wife had chosen, and instead wanted them to attend his newly opened Christian school Donda Academy.
