title iconAfter Kim Kardashian became 'livid', Kanye West deleted Pete Davidson's post

Monday morning, Kanye West deleted his post about Pete Davidson. He removed the image that featured a fake New York Times front-page headline that read, "SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28," after his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, complained about his public response.

Kim is furious and extremely upset ... Kanye is back to his old bullying ways, and she won't tolerate it," a source close to Skims told Page Six. Recently, Kim and Kanye have been in such a positive space as far as co-parenting and communication goes," the insider said. She even supported Kanye and did the Yeezy shoot and post for him ... It's just a reminder that there will never be a reconciliation between them.

Despite their relationship status, the "Kardashians" star, 41, will "always protect Pete." The "SNL" alum and Kardashian, 41, broke up nine months ago. According to a source, "They love and respect each other, but have found it difficult to maintain a relationship because of their distance and busy schedules.

In the words of the insider, "Pete is 28 years old and Kim is 41. At the moment, they are just in very different places in their lives. "Pete is spontaneous and impulsive, and he wants her to fly to New York, or wherever he is at a moment's notice, even if she has four kids at home. It's not easy for Kim because she has four children at home. She must focus on the kids first.
