Kanye West is at the center of an ugly wife-beating scandal! RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that the rapper’s stepmom has accused his father of battering her — and Kanye’s stepsister blames him for his dad’s violent behavior!
In explosive divorce documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, Cheryl West claimed Raymond West slapped her around, whipped her with a belt and committed bigamy.
“I wanted this marriage to be over because Raymond West was emotionally and physically abusive,” Cheryl stated in the documents.
“Once he beat me with a belt,” she added.
“On another occasion he attacked me and tried to physically remove the wedding ring from my finger.”
Cheryl also claimed Raymond threatened to kill her.
“Following the death of my mother in 2009, he…told a relative ‘he could make me disappear.’ This was a threat on my life,” insisted Cheryl.
The couple wed in Maryland on Valentine’s Day in 1998, but filed for divorce multiple times, with the divorce finalized just nine months ago.
In the papers, Cheryl also accused Raymond of marrying current wife Brenda Bentley before being officially divorced from her.
“His actions continue to show a lack of character, a reckless disregard for the court and gross disrespect for the law,” Cheryl added.
In the same documents, the “Yeezus” singer’s stepsister blames his fame for prompting Raymond to walk out on her mother.
“He’s Kanye West’s dad. And it just seems to me that when the fame arrived, he disappeared,” blasted Shaleim Henry.
The domestic violence bombshell will likely shock Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, who accused her first husband, producer Damon Thomas, of beating her. Damon has denied the claims.
But Kardashian has also seen Kanye punch a teenager who hurled the “N-word” and a homophobic slur at paparazzi in 2014. The year before, Kanye attacked a photographer, leaving him hospitalized.
