Kanye West and Kris Jenner have had a seriously close relationship for years, but as the rapper brands his mother-in-law 'Kris Jong-un' and asks if she wants to 'go to war', what happened between the pair?

Kanye West has been a part of the Kardashian family ever since he and Kim got married in 2014, with the famous family endlessly supporting his music, clothes and whatever creative idea he has in mind for them.

He and Kris have always shared a seriously close relationship, with 'Ye calling her 'mom' and even moving into the momager's house on multiple occasions.

But as Kanye's Twitter rants have ramped up to their most epic levels to date which has seen him take aim at both his wife and Kris, it's safe to say their relationship is going to be seriously affected.

So, what has he said, and where did it all go wrong?

Kanye's latest online and in-life rants have seen him denounce those closest to him, in particular, wife Kim and Kris, who are clearly worried about his mental state, as someone who has been diagnosed with Bipolar disorder and have reportedly made several attempts to reach him with doctors.

Kanye has responded by saying they are attempting to 'lock him up', referencing the movie Get Out, and branding them White supremacists.

According to People, out of all the things Kanye has said recently, it is his comment about Kris not being able to see his children which has upset Kim the most.
