    Brad Barket, Rich Fury/Getty Images Trevor Noah is defending Kanye West — legally now known as Ye — after the controversial rapper was booted from Instagram and performing at the Grammys, even though Noah was a target of one of West’s posts that contained a racial slur. Instagram temporarily suspended West this week after his latest round of pugnacious posts, frequently complaining about his divorce from Kim Kardashian, the custody battles over their four children, and insults aimed at Kardashian’s boyfriend, Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson. One of West’s latest music videos rang alarm bells for many viewers when it portrayed him kidnapping and burying alive a claymation version of Davidson.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kim Kardashian has asked a court to ignore Ye’s attempts to slow down their divorce and end their marriage as soon as possible. She filed documents in Los Angeles Superior Court late Wednesday saying Ye, who legally changed his name from Kanye West, in his own recent filing, began adding conditions to the divorce that would mean changing the couples’ prenuptial agreement, and is seeking protections that are unnecessary and based on falsehoods. Kardashian said it’s clear that he is simply attempting to delay, and is causing damage by doing so. “Mr. West, by his actions, has made it clear that he does not accept that the parties’ marital relationship is over,” the court filing says. “Mr. West has disseminated on social media the parties’ private communications and misinformation about personal family matters and co-parenting, which has caused emotional distress.” In December, Kardashian, as is common in complicated divorces, asked the court to declare her legally single before the details of child custody and property are worked out. She said in...

The incident that spurred the complaint took place in downtown Los Angeles at about 3 a.m. Thursday, LAPD spokeswoman Redina Puentes said. No arrests have been made.

    Kanye “Ye” West gets the finest cuts at the steakhouse, it seems. Shame the same can’t be said of the barbershop. Spies at Miami hotspot Prime 112 say that the rapper showed up recently sporting his bizarre new buzzcut — which looks a little like it might have been done by a set of possessed (and possibly impaired) clippers — to have dinner with rap legend N.O.R.E.
