The rapper also wore a "full-face hood and head covering adorned with Jesus Christ’s image which obscured his face and muffled his voice," and said the legal team did not have a right to see his face.

Kanye also referred to himself as a “mental genius-ness" and called Popok "f---ing stupid" before storming away.

According to the rapper, MyChannel violated the court order by publicly filing information about his deposition, which he claims was under seal by the court.

He accuses them of violating the court’s order in an “attempt to gain some perceived advantage in the case.”
