Earlier this month, he said he felt Jenner had coerced her two of her daughters, Kim and Kylie Jenner, 25, to pose for Playboy.
He posted an image of Kylie associate Victoria Villarroel, saying, ‘Don’t let Kris make you do Playboy like she made Kylie and Kim do.
‘Hollywood is a giant brothel. Pornography destroyed my family,’ said West, who shares four children with Kim: North, nine, and Chicago, four, and sons Saint, six, and Psalm, three.
He added: ‘I deal with the addiction [and] Instagram promotes it. Not gonna let it happen to Northy and Chicago.’

Jenner was upset about the jabs West took at her, as she feels she’s done ‘nothing but try to help’ him, sources told HollywoodLife.
‘Kris thought that Kanye was way out of line for what he said about her yesterday,’ one source told the site. ‘Kris has done nothing but try to help Kanye and mediate the tension between him and Kim. Kris is really hurt by his comments, and she let him know this.
‘Kris works so hard to make sure that everyone in her family is kept safe and she will defend her family however she can. But she knows that if she were to speak out and respond to Kanye that he would only escalate the situation and that is the last thing she wants, or needs, at this time. Kim is the mother of his kids and Kris thinks that needs to respect her and keep the kids out of it.’

A second source told the site that while Jenner was ‘completely shocked’ about West’s attack on her, she’s used to him bashing the family on social media and ‘doesn’t think he’ll ever truly change.’
The source said Kris ‘is bothered that he’s not only humiliating Kim and himself but bringing the children into it is unacceptable.’
West compared Jenner to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in a July 2020 tweet in which he said, ‘They tried to fly in with 2 doctors to 51/50 me I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for “prison reform” I got 200 more to go. This my lady tweet of the night … Kris Jong-Un.’
