Kanye West has returned to posting about his estranged wife Kim Kardashian just hours after he admitted that he had been ‘harassing’ her with his social media posts.
The 44-year-old hitmaker shared a photo of his 41-year-old ex crouched down in a black cat suit and wearing large sunglasses.
The rapper also made light of his caps-locked captions, which he previously admitted made ‘people feel like I’m screaming at them.’
Not letting up: Kanye West, 44, returned to posting about his estranged wife Kim Kardahsian, 41, on Tuesday, just hours after he admitted his other post and behavior were ‘harassing’ toward her
Kim appeared to be wearing one of the several black Balenciaga bodysuits she wore throughout 2021, though this one didn’t feature a full-face covering, as some of her edgier looks did.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star even wore some of the designs to help her ex promote his album Donda.
In his caption, Kanye seemed to reverse his earlier Instagram statements about harassing his ex and returned to his all-caps captioning style.
‘VISION OH SORRY ALL CAPS IS BACK FOR THE THE PEOPLE THATS ALL CAP,’ read his stream-of-consciousness text.
The post, which appeared about seven hours after the Monster rapper seemed to own up to his disturbing behavior in recent days, led some fans on social media to wonder if someone else had written the earlier post admitting to ‘harassing’ behavior.
Kanye joked about returning to using all capital letters in his caption, which he took a break from in his earlier post. Some fans speculated on social media that his earlier post was written by someone else
The post of Kim in the bodysuit featured a caption that was more in line with the style of West’s earlier frenzied posts, unlike his more introspective post, which featured more measured language that was unlike any of Kanye’s recent posts preceding it, all of which he deleted.
On Monday, Kim marked Valentine’s Day by posting photos of herself in a different outfit but with the same unusual sunglasses, so her soon-to-be ex-husband’s post suggested he was keeping a close eye on her social account.
He had previously pledged to work on his communication after he posted a series of screenshots that contained threats directed at Kim’s boyfriend Pete Davidson.
‘I know sharing screen shots was jarring and came off as harassing Kim. I take accountability,’ the rapper stated in a lengthy mea culpa.
Kanye also sparked concern when he posted an image of a truck full of roses arriving at Kim’s house in LA, which many divorce experts on social media claimed was a sign of ‘post-separation abuse.’
Kanye admits to HARASSING ex Kim Kardashian: Rapper promises to ‘work on his communication’ after sending estranged wife roses and threatening her boyfriend Pete Davidson
The rapper wrote in his Instagram post: ‘I’ve learned that using all caps makes people feel like I’m screaming at them. I’m working on my communication.’
‘I can benefit from a team of creative professionals, organizers, mobilizers and community leaders. Thank everybody for supporting me.’
‘I know sharing screen shots was jarring and came off as harassing Kim. I take accountability. I’m still learning in real time. I don’t have all the answers. To be good leader is to be a good listener.’
The backtrack comes a day after he shared screenshots from Kim where she pleaded with him to stop putting her current beau Pete, 28, in danger.
It also follows him turning up at her home in Los Angeles with a truck full of red roses for Valentine’s Day, despite Kim clearly moving on in a new relationship.

The Grammy-winning artist shared a shot from the 2001 film Baby Boy on Monday, in which Ving Rhames puts Tyrese Gibson in a violent chokehold, writing, ‘UPON MY WIFE’S REQUEST PLEASE NOBODY DO ANYTHING PHYSICAL TO SKETE IM GOING TO HANDLE THE SITUATION MYSELF.’
He posted a series of screenshot of texts from Kim saying he was making things uncomfortable for the SNL star.
In the texts, Kardashian said, West was ‘creating a dangerous and scary environment and someone will hurt Pete and this will be all your fault,’ later saying, ‘There are dangerous people out there and this is scary and it doesn’t have to be.’
The Can’t Tell Me Nothing rapper replied to his estranged wife via text, ‘I will always do everything to protect you and our family forever. And I listened to you and told everyone to make sure nothing physical happens to Skete.’
In a subsequent post, Kardashian asked the Heartless vocalist why he couldn’t keep any of their conversations private, to which he responded, ‘Cause I got a text from my favorite person in the world.’
The Bound 2 rapper continued to Kardashian, ‘I’m your number one fan … Why wouldn’t I tell everyone!!!!’

In his attack on Sunday, West called Davidson a ‘d***head’ and shared a screengrab of his private text to him.
The comedian had texted the rapper: ‘…you as a man I’d never get in the way of your children. That’s a promise. How you guys go about raising your kids is your business and not mine. I do hope [some] day I can meet them and we can all be friends.’
West – who suffers from bipolar disorder – shared a snap of Pete with his friend Machine Gun Kelly in their underwear captioned: ‘No you will never meet my children.’
He had ‘no comment’ about a rumor that Ariana Grande ended her four-month engagement to Davidson over him allegedly sending intimate photos of the pair to her ex Mac Miller before his 2018 death.

West seemed especially outraged that the Staten Island native – who’s in the process of lasering off all 100 of his tattoos – once had his ‘hero’ Hillary Clinton inked on his calf.
‘When I tag people I’m just putting together the web. There are a group of people who run media and the election. Thank god for free speech.
‘Look at this d***head. I wonder if Instagram gonna shut down my page for dissing [Hillary] Clinton’s ex boyfriend.’
West added: ‘Y’all seen that tattoo but if I speak up then I’m crazy. I told you not going to use that one no more when a garbage man goes to work he gonna smell like trash but it’s time to take the trash out the house…You can Google the Hillary thing I’m not making this s*** up.’
West earlier Monday attempted to win back his ex Kardashian with a grand gesture on Valentine’s Day amid their feud.
The rapper sent a massive arrangement of red roses to her house in a truck branded, ‘MY VISION IS KRYSTAL KLEAR.’

The rapper has previously threatened to ‘beat Pete Davidson’s a**’ on a recent song from his upcoming album Donda 2.
His apology on Instagram comes as he received fierce backlash online from many divorce and relationship experts that claimed his behavior was a sign of ‘abuse’ towards Kim.
Dr Charlotte Proudman, a Barrister, tweeted: ‘This is what post-separation abuse looks like. Using children as a pawn to manipulate, control and threaten a parent.’
Child safety advocacy group Custody Peace also tweeted: ‘Dear world. This is abuse. #KanyeWest continues to deliberately choose behaviors that have the potential to break the mental calm of the mother of his children & therefore the mental calm of his children. This should be unacceptable to EVERYONE.’
