Kanye West has posted a special video message to fans titled “Thanksgiving Prayer 🕊.” The five-minute video features Ye speaking about his family life, his marriage to Kim Kardashian West, his public relationship with Christianity, his mental health, being on medication, the period of time where he was supporting Trump and wearing a MAGA hat, and more.
“This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for the family that my wife has given me, I’m thankful for the life God has given me, and I’m thankful for your time, attention, and patience,” Ye said. “In Jesus’ name, amen.” Watch it below.
Ye attended the Los Angeles Mission’s Thanksgiving event yesterday, where he spoke about his marriage to Kim Kardashian West, People reports. “I’ve made mistakes,” he said. “I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband, but right now today, for whatever reason—I didn’t know I was going to be in front of this mic—but I’m here to change the narrative.”
Kardashian West filed for divorce from Ye in February of this year. During Ye’s live Donda listening events prior to the album’s release, Kardashian West appeared and even showed up in a wedding dress at Chicago’s Soldier Field. She has recently made headlines for her apparent relationship with Pete Davidson.
After multiple delays, Donda finally arrived in late August. It subsequently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, marking the biggest week for any album released in 2021. He and Drake recently appeared to end their feud and are set to appear together at a Los Angeles event on December 9. Netflix recently teased a multi-part documentary on Kanye West’s life titled Jeen-Yuhs that has reportedly been in the making for 21 years. It’s slated for release in 2022.
