Ye wants that old thing back.
During his performance at the “Free Larry Hoover Benefit Concert” on Thursday night (Dec. 9) at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the award-winning rapper, formerly known as Kanye West, called out to his estranged wife, Kimberly Kardashian, to “run right back to me.”
The comment came during a unique rendition of his classic 2010 single “Runaway” from his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The song was purportedly written for his ex-girlfriend, model Amber Rose. However, after singing the lyrics, "I need you to run right back to me, baby," the rapper added, "more specifically, Kimberly."
The SKIMS creator was in attendance with several members of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, including two of her four children, 8-year-old North and 6-year-old Saint. The estranged couple also shares two younger children, 3-year-old Chicago and 2-year-old Psalm. Last February, the fashion designer filed for divorce from the “Jail” rapper after roughly seven years of marriage. The pair began dating in 2014.
This wasn’t the first time Ye expressed hopes of reconciliation. During his highly anticipated appearance on an episode of the "Drink Champs" podcast with fellow rapper N.O.R.E, Ye refused to accept his wife’s request for a divorce. "I ain't never even seen the papers; we’re not even divorced,” the rapper said. “My kids want their parents to stay together. I want ... us to be together.”
Last November, in a since-deleted nearly 5-minute-long video posted to his Instagram account, the fashion designer expressed regret and how his focus was to “get my family back together.”
"All I think about every day is how I get my family back together and how I heal the pain that I've caused," he said at the time. "I take accountability for my actions. New word alert: misactions. The one thing that all my successes and failures have in common is me."
In October, Kardashian-West was linked to actor Pete Davidson since parting ways with Ye. According to unidentified sources who spoke to PEOPLE, “Pete has been the best antidote.”
