Khloé Kardashian and Kanye West are now publicly feuding on Instagram.
In reply to a post on Wednesday, she asked him to "STOP tearing Kimberly down" and the family.
He replied to her plea by saying the Kardashians "kidnapped" his daughter Chicago on her birthday.
The back-and-forth between the Kardashian family and Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, is once again happening on a public platform — this time between Ye and his former sister-in-law, Khloé Kardashian.
It all started when Ye posted on Instagram calling out celebrities, including supermodel Gigi Hadid, for criticizing him for wearing a "White Lives Matter" shirt at his YZYSZN9 fashion show in Paris on Monday — but not supporting him when he said he didn't know where his daughter was on her birthday. Kardashian quickly jumped into the comments.
"Ye, I love you. I don't want to do this on social media," the comment began, "but YOU keep bringing it here."
Kardashian went on to accuse her former brother-in-law of name-dropping the Kardashians to deflect whenever he is being criticized in the media. "Please STOP tearing Kimberly down and using our family," her comment read in part.
"You know exactly where your children are at all times and YOU wanted separate birthdays. I have seen all of the texts to prove it. And when you changed your mind and wanted to attend, you came," Kardashian's reply continued.
She ended her statement by asking Ye to leave Kim and her family "out of" his controversies so that the children "can be raised peacefully."
"I come from a place of love and I am happy to continue this conversation privately if you wish," she concluded.
The birthday comments appear to be in reference to a January 2022 celebration in which Chicago West, Ye's 4-year-old daughter with Kim Kardashian, celebrated her birthday at a joint party with her cousin Stormi Webster, Kylie Jenner's daughter with Travis Scott. The rapper had previously claimed that he was kept from seeing Chicago on her birthday and "wasn't allowed" to know where the celebration was, though he did eventually make it to that party.
After seeing Khloé's comment, Ye replied with a new post to his Instagram account that featured a screenshot of her response.
"YOU ARE LYING AND ARE LIARS YALL BASICALLY KIDNAPPED CHICAGO ON HER BIRTHDAY SO SHE COULD REMEMBER HER FATHER NOT BEING THERE," he wrote in all caps.
Ye went on to say in his Instagram response to Khloé on Wednesday that Travis Scott was the person who gave him the address to the party, stating that the Kardashians "PLAY WITH BLACK FATHERS."
And, in addition to mentioning Chicago's birthday, he claimed something similar happened with his son Psalm's birthday, and that he wants to see his children more often.
Ye has been responding to social media controversy since Monday after he was criticized for featuring "White Lives Matter" shirts in his fashion show in addition to wearing one himself.
When Vogue fashion editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson criticized the shirts on Instagram — saying the message behind them was a "danger" because it "justifies mass incarceration, murder en mass, indeed even the advent of slavery" — Ye insulted Karefa-Johnson and her outfit in a now-deleted post. That's when Hadid stepped in and called Ye "a bully and a joke," according to screenshots from Popcrave.
Ye says he has since made up with Karefa-Johnson. Representatives for Ye and the Kardashians did not immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment.
