Kanye West has failed to defend girlfriend Kim Kardashian over her ex-boyfriend Ray J’s new single, I Hit It First.
Kanye has sent tongues wagging over his silence upon the release of rapper Ray J’s new single, I Hit It First. Ray J, who famously made a sex tape with Kim while the pair were dating, seemingly makes fun of Kim in his new song.
Sources say Kanye, who has never been one to refrain from speaking his mind in public, should be more supportive of heavily pregnant Kim.
“It’s not like Kanye is some retiring wallflower,” a source tells Britain’s Star magazine. “He publicly stood up for Beyoncé over not winning that MTV award, and he has had his share of ‘beefs’ with other rappers.”
In his new song, Ray J sings, “She might move on to rappers and ballplayers/But we all know I hit it first.” The hurtful lyrics are the latest blow to Kim, who has weathered a storm of negative comments about her pregnancy weight. The reality star is expecting her first child with Kanye in July.
“I think it’s a little bully-ish to call a pregnant woman fat,” she has said of her critics. “I mean, what do you expect? I hope I gain weight.”
So far, Kanye has failed to defend Kim over the song. The rapper’s uncharacteristic silence has reportedly left Kim fuming.
“The pregnancy’s not easy – she’s going through hell with her divorce from her ex, Kris Humphries, and she’s overwhelmed,” says a friend. “She needs to know Kanye is there for her and will protect her honour.”
