A picture of Kim Kardashian meeting with rapper Meek Mill to discuss prison reform back in 2018 at a hotel in Los Angeles has emerged via Twitter on Thursday.
Earlier this week, Kanye West shocked fans after he claimed that he had been ‘trying to get divorced’ from Kim since the meet-up allegedly at the Waldorf in Beverly Hills, suggesting something untoward took place and she was ‘out of line’.
In the photo, it clearly shows Kim, 39, and the 33-year-old rapper, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, meeting in a professional capacity.
The duo are joined by philanthropist Clara Wu at a rooftop restaurant, where they are believed to have discussed prison reform.
Mill was clear in his denial that nothing untoward happened between himself and Kim, writing earlier this week: ‘Sh** is cappp cmon’, which is slang for lies.
After the photo emerged, the rapper took to his Twitter account on Thursday to tweet: ‘Being around the wrong environment and wrong people will make you forget your worth! Stay focused.’
Kim earned glowing praise from Mill last year, when the rapper called her a ‘friend’ and hailed her for ‘doing a lot of good work’ on prison reform.
Meek and Kim both attended a Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles in November 2018, but it was at the Jeremy Hotel rather than the Waldorf in Beverly Hills which Kanye appeared to be referring to.
On Tuesday, in a string of now-deleted shocking tweets, Kanye claimed: ‘I’ve been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for ‘prison reform.’
He added: ‘Meek is my man and was respectful That’s my dog Kim was out of line I’m worth 5 billion dollars and more than that through Christ But ya’ll ain’t listen to MJ and now ya’ll believe them???’
However, he later deleted the tweets and his wife Kim has been supporting him through his struggle with bipolar disorder, she said earlier this week in a statement that ‘his words sometimes do not align with his intentions’.
Sharing three pages to her Instagram story on Wednesday morning, Kim said: ‘Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor.’
She continued to her 180 million followers: ‘I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions.
‘He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bi-polar disorder.
‘Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions.
‘As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.
‘I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health.
‘But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.
‘People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.
‘Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.’
Kanye, who struggles with bipolar disorder, is currently at his ranch in Wyoming after hosting his presidential rally in Charleston, South Carolina on Sunday.
On Sunday, the upset rapper revealed that the couple had considered aborting their now-seven-year-old daughter North.
Kanye and Kim share daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 2, and sons Saint, 4, and Psalm, 14 months.
Kanye struggles with bipolar disorder and, in 2016, he spent time in hospital after a ‘psychiatric emergency’ that forced him to cancel 21 concert dates.
