Kanye West sat down with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Thursday to discuss his latest controversies. During the live interview, the Chicago rapper spoke on everything from his political beliefs to his relationship with ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

The 45-year old also addressed his pro-life beliefs, wearing a lanyard with a photograph of an ultrasound. “It just represents life. I’m pro-life,” Ye said. “I don’t care about people’s responses, but I care about the fact that there are more Black babies being aborted than born in New York City at this point.”

Kanye West also spoke to Fox on his relationship with former president Donald Trump. “My so-called friends/handlers around me told me if I said that I liked Trump that my career would be over. That my life would be over. They said stuff like people get killed for wearing a hat like that.” The mogul then alleged that his life was “threatened” over his political beliefs.

Kanye West’s controversy

Earlier this week, Ye made headlines for featuring a tee with the controversial slogan “White Lives Matter” in his Yeezy Season 9 collection. Since then, he has faced criticism from around the fashion world, including figures such as Gigi Hadid and Jaden Smith. He has also received backlash for his treatment of Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson.

The issue has also affected Kanye’s wallet. On Thursday, his longtime distribution partner Adidas issued a statement saying that despite efforts to resolve the situation, their business partnership with Ye was “under review”.

West didn’t hold back when it came to his estranged ex-wife Kim Kardashian. He spoke on her social beliefs during the interview. “Kim is Christian, but she has people who want her to go to Interview magazine and put her a** out,” the Louis Vuitton Don said. “She’s a 40 year old woman with four Black children. This is how fashion treats you.”
