Kanye West has savaged Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson over their split, leaving his ex-wife very unhappy.

The rapper shared a fake New York Times front page on Instagram, with the headline reading: “SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28”.

Kim and Pete had been together for nine months before they parted ways, and Kanye became well known for his unhinged swipes at the pair on Instagram, often referring to Pete as ‘Skete’.

He has previously called him a ‘d**khead’, posted numerous rants against the comedian, and also shared a photo with a big red ‘X’ over Pete’s face.

Kanye's friendship with Kid Cudi is also seemingly over, due to Cudi's close relationship with Pete.

Some of Kanye’s fans thought that he was being hilarious and praised his fake headline.

“Seriously though, Kanye’s 4AM sh*tposts are funnier than the jokes that Skete writes as a professional comedian,” a fan wrote on Twitter.

“Kanye belongs in the petty hall of fame,” another agreed.

“I’m sorry but the Kid Cudi part at the bottom has me crying,” another quipped.

On the other hand, there were plenty of fans who slammed Kanye for being ‘childish’.

“Hella petty. No grown woman should ever find this energy attractive. You won’t win anyone with these remarks,” one commented.

“So pathetic for his age. Isn’t he about 50?” another added.

“Ye [is] the definition of waking up and choosing violence,” a third chimed in.

Reportedly, Kim was ‘upset’ about the post and ordered Kanye to take it down, which he did — after leaving it online for four hours.

“Kim is upset,” a source told E! News. “Not only is she sad from the break-up, but this on top of it has tested her mentally.”

“She will always protect Pete,” the source said.

Kim’s ‘shock split’ from Pete

This comes after the couple’s reported split was announced last week.

Sources close to the couple told E! News the couple had parted ways and decided to just be friends.

Kim and Pete started dating after she filed for divorce from Kanye West after six years of marriage.

E! News reported that Kim and Pete decided to split up as long-distance and demanding schedules "made it really difficult to maintain a relationship".

Kim has been mostly in the US during their relationship, however, Pete has recently been in Australia to work on a new movie.

E! News first reported in November Pete and Kim were officially together, with a source telling the publication Pete did not want to see other people.

"She is telling some people they aren't super serious but she isn't seeing anyone else ... She's trying to not make a big deal about it but is super into him," the source said.

Kim and Pete are yet to confirm the split.
