The “Famous” rapper launched an online tirade against the “Hotline Bling” hitmaker earlier this week, in which he accused his rival of threatening him and his family, but Drake’s only response was to share a string of laughing face emojis on his Instagram story.
And after Ariana Grande lightheartedly urged the “grown men” who were “arguing online” to stop while she and Miley Cyrus released some new music, Sophie Brussaux — who has son Adonis, 14 months, with the “God’s Plan” singer — couldn’t resist taking a swipe at Kanye.
She replied to a screenshot of the tweet: “I would hardly call Kanye arguing with himself ‘grown men.’ “
Brussaux’s comment came after Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian West — who has children North, 5, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 11 months, with the 41-year-old rapper — sprung to the defense of her husband.

He wrote alongside the screenshot: “This proves s— faker than wrestling
“Still need that apology for mentioning the 350s and trying to take food out your idols kids mouths (sic)”
Kanye then claimed he’d been trying to meet with the “God’s Plan” rapper for “six months,” but said Drake had ignored him while still speaking to his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, as well as Travis Scott, who is dating Kylie Jenner, the half-sister of Kanye’s wife.
In another tweet, he wrote: “Been trying to meet with you for 6 months bro You sneak dissing on trav records and texting Kris talking bout how’s the family (sic)”
Just over an hour after his rant was posted, Kanye took to Twitter again to claim that Drake had now gotten in touch.
He wrote: “Drake finally called
