As you've no doubt heard by now, Kanye West has been on quite a tear lately.
The rapper's outspoken love for Donald Trump and right-leaning media figures like Candace Owens has made him a subject of scorn and ridicule in recent weeks, to the point that Yeezy's politics have overshadowed some major revelations about his personal life.
For example, with everything that's been going on, you may have missed the fact that Kanye admitted to an opioid addiction that nearly claimed his life after he was put on prescription painkillers following a liposuction procedure.
Like we said, there's a lot going on with Kanye these days, and it's not hard to see why the news of his past addiction issues was quickly knocked out of the headlines by West's declaration that slavery was "a choice" made by generations of black Americans.
When you've reached that level narcissistic ignorance, it can be hard to find like-minded souls to converse with.
Fortunately, Kanye married into the Kardashian clan, which means he's surrounded by self-indulgent egomaniacs!
So perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that he's bonded with the vain member of TV's most self-absorbed family.
We're talking, of course, about the man who unironically refers to himself as "the Lord."
Yes, according to Radar Online, Kanye and Scott Disick are thick as thieves these days.
The site reports that 'Ye recently "bonded with Scott about what he’s been going through because of Scott’s own addiction issues.”
“You don’t really see them together, but they are closer than people think. They have talked recently," says one insider.
We guess it makes sense.
Not only are Scott and Kanye both in possession of egos so large they have their own gravitational pull, they've both struggled mightily with addiction issues in recent years.
According to legal documents obtained by Radar, Kanye admitted to “popping Percocets two at a time,” and needing to get off "the bad drugs" in a 2017 deposition.
And of course, Disick's alcoholism reached such extreme levels in the wake of his breakup from Kourtney Kardashian that friends were reportedly convinced he only had months to live.
Understandably, Kim is said to be less than thrilled with her husband's new friendship.
Those who know the couple best say Kim supported Kanye's efforts to keep his addiction a secret for years, and she's puzzled by the fact that he's now wearing it as a badge of honor.
“Kim is mortified after he’s talked about his drug addiction,” says one source.
“She has known, as has the family, and they have gone to lengths to hide it.”
The insider adds:
“It’s been a struggle for them.”
Kim reportedly feels that Kanye is in an extremely vulnerable place right now, and she fears that Scott will turn out to be a bad influence.
Obviously, she's right to be concerned.
Kanye is obviously in a suggestible state and if there's even a remote chance that Scott can convince him to put a Lord cameo on hs next album, these two need to be kept far, far apart.
The world can't handle Scott Disick the rapper right now.
