Kanye West Argues Kim Kardashian Can't Prove He Made Deleted Social Media Posts Harassing Pete Davidson As He Continues To Contest Their Prenup
Kanye West took his ongoing divorce proceedings with estranged ex Kim Kardashian to a new level this week.
The "Flashing Lights" rapper's lawyers are now claiming the Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum has not proven that West ever made the since-deleted Instagram posts harassing her and Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson.
"Kim claims she read something online allegedly by Kanye and characterizes the posts in her declaration as misinformation," the statement from his legal team obtained by TMZ read. "Kim needed to offer the social media posts into evidence, and show that the posts were written by Kanye."
Although the posts in question have all been deleted — Ye regularly wipes his Instagram account of his many social media rants — there has been constant media coverage and screenshots shared of the offending comments made by the billionaire rapper.
It is unclear if Yeezy's attorneys intend to argue that he was hacked or that the images were photoshopped, or if they are simply stalling by asking Kardashian to provide more proof connected with the incident before moving forward.

This is especially strange, because as OK! previously reported, West has already seemingly admitted to penning the series of scathing social media posts aimed at both his estranged wife and Davidson after Kardashian voiced concerns that Ye was creating a "dangerous and scary environment" for the King of Staten Island actor.

"I know sharing screen shots was jarring and came off as harassing Kim," he wrote in an apology via Instagram. "I take accountability. I’m still learning in real time."
Along with the requests for proof of social media activity, the "Gold Digger" artist's team are also contesting the former couple's prenup.
West's attorney has claimed that in California, prenups that were signed after 2001 are considered invalid until they are later validated in a trial or if both parties agree again to the stipulations of the prenuptial agreement during their divorce proceedings.
