Kanye West made a surprise appearance at the BET Awards 2022 and mentioned his marriage to Kim Kardashian during his speech on stage.
The ‘Donda’ rapper took to the stage to honour his good friend and music legend P Diddy - real name Sean Combs - as the artist was the winner of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Ye paid tribute to the music veteran in a speech, explaining how Diddy had influenced many of his life choices.
The father-of-four was dressed in a zip-up hoodie, cap and a full-coverage face covering during his speech, where he shared some heartwarming words about how much he looks up to Diddy.
Ye said: “I go to [Diddy] for advice to this day. He inspires so many of my choices.
“So many of my life choices. My wife choices. And here we are — thanks for that, Puff."
Kanye’s remark about his failed marriage to Kim - who he was married to for six years - raised a laugh from the audience as Ye appeared to smirk.
Kim filed for divorce from the ‘Yeezus’ rapper in February 2021, with the pair first splitting amicably before Ye’s series of social media outbursts causing friction between the exes.
The SKIMS founder moved on with Pete Davidson in October last year, leading Kanye to threaten Kim’s new beau online and in his songs.
Kimye are co-parenting their four kids; North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
