West and sister-in-law Kylie Jenner's feud began when Jenner, 18, inked a deal with Puma. She previously walked in West's Yeezus fashion shows, and West felt betrayed. "It's like if I made a show Sunday night, and didn't tell any of you all about it, but I did a couple shows with y'all first. So people saw me and were all, 'Ah, he's cool on camera.' And somebody offered me a deal, and I, like, did it and didn't tell none of y'all, and brought all my cool friends," he explained on KUWTK. But it seems like they settled their feud for now, as West tweeted back in February that Puma couldn't divide their family.

West and Taylor Swift's feud began in 2009 when he interrupted her acceptance speech at the MTV VMAs. West apologized via Twitter a year later, but Swift already penned the track "Innocent" about the incident. West then accused Swift of using the incident for publicity, and they were at war again until 2015, when the duo was set to collaborate. Swift then presented West with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs, and he sent her flowers. But then he released the track "Famous," and claimed Swift was okay with it. She shot back that she wasn't, prompting Kim Kardashian to release a secret recording of their conversation. They've been at war ever since.
