Kim Kardashian reportedly took added safety precautions following a series of online outbursts by ex Kanye West.
The reality TV star enlisted extra security for their children after West posted the name of their school on Instagram amid an attempt for them to go to his new Donda Academy, TMZ reported Monday.
Kardashian, who filed for divorce from West last year, has four children with the rapper who range in age from 3 to 9 years old.
The Grammy-winning West isn’t considered a safety threat, a source told TMZ, but the school hired the extra security in case a stranger shows up. Kardashian is reportedly covering the cost of the added muscle.
The latest development follows a recent streak of controversial behavior by West, who has also been accused of sharing antisemitic posts online.
Instagram restricted his account last week after he shared a screenshot of a text conversation with fellow rapper Diddy in which West wrote, “Ima use you as an example to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me.”
Twitter also removed a post in which West wrote he would go “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
West drew backlash as well for a Fox News appearance last week in which he suggested that Jared Kushner, who is Jewish, worked on the Abraham Accords peace treaties “to make money.” And the rapper wore a “White Lives Matter” shirt at Paris Fashion Week last week, and then again at his daughter’s basketball game.
He and Kardashian married in 2014. Kardashian has pushed back on West’s desire for the kids to attend the Donda Academy, a private Christian school he recently founded, because it isn’t accredited, according to TMZ.
