“Kenan wants to humiliate Kanye, his style, his love for Trump and his sheer ignorance," the source said. "Ever since Kanye made that 'slavery was a choice' comment, Kenan despised him. Kenan also thought Kanye was out of line and disrespected the cast and crew by holding them against their will and making them listen to his idiotic nonsense. He's begging producers to let him take Kanye down next week!

Radar also learned producers are contemplating banning Kim Kardashian's husband from future appearances following the Sept. 29 on stage rant and his 2016 meltdown when he threw a tantrum backstage and hurled insults about Taylor Swift.

“His antics weren't cool, funny, or even warranted. His actions are just so unacceptable," another source told Radar. "He was never bullied backstage and no one ever asked him to take off his MAGA hat. Kanye ruffled a lot of feathers."

As Radar readers know, West, 41, is no stranger to making news or shocking just about everyone around him. In an interview this week, West referred to himself as "God" and said he's no longer taking his medication.

The revelation shocked wife Kim Kardashian, 37.

"She thinks he’s lost his mind again,” a third source told Radar. “Kim doesn’t want Kanye to be alone anymore, because she believes he’s not taking care of himself.”
