The unexpected visit by Comedian Dave Chappelle was the tonic needed to cheer up American rapper, Kanye West after bashing his wife, Kim Kardashian and mother in-law, Kris Jenner in online tweets.
Chapelle was said to have travelled on a jet to check on West at his Wyoming ranch.
Kanye’s hangout with Chappelle came after reports Kim Kardashian and members of the family were upset about his Twitter tirade this morning in which he claimed Kim wanted to ‘lock him up.’
On Tuesday, Kanye took to his Twitter on Tuesday, July 21 and was delighted to get a visit from his longtime friend, Chappelle.
Posting on Twitter, Kanye captioned the clip: ‘THANK YOU DAVE FOR HOPPING ON A JET TO COME SEE ME DOING WELL DAVE YOU ARE A GOD SEND AND A TRUE FRIEND ALL LOVE.’
In the video, Kanye began: Dave, can you please just make us smile? The world needs some joy, we need a smile.’
When Dave replied, ‘Brotherhood is real. Love is real’, Kanye quickly pointed out with a laugh: ‘Wait a second, I said a smile bro.’
Kanye continued: ‘We need a joke or something to lift our spirits.’
Chapelle said that he was still on his first cup of coffee and needed time to come up with a good joke. “An uplifting joke? You know I don’t write them!” he said.
The group with West and Chappelle laughed, and hugged each other before walking out of the frame.
Kanye on Sunday 19, made an emotional speech and broke down in tears as he revealed he and wife Kim Kardashian considered aborting their eldest daughter, North.
‘My mum saved my life. My Dad wanted to abort me… My mum saved my life, there would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy,’ Kanye told the audience.
‘I almost killed my daughter.’
Kim is yet to publicly speak out about her husband Kanye’s comments.
