Kanye West has unfollowed ex-wife Kim Kardashian on Instagram, but there doesn't really seem to be any bad blood between the two. West, or "Ye" as he wants to be known (opens in new tab), now only follows 14 people, including Solange Knowles (opens in new tab). All of the users he follows have matched their profile pic to his, making it simply a black circle, which is a nod to the art from West's latest album, Donda (opens in new tab).

Meanwhile, Kardashian isn't acting like a woman scorned in the slightest. Her Met Gala look (opens in new tab) by Balenciaga, which covered even her face in black fabric, was directly inspired by Donda. She even shared a similar look (opens in new tab) by the same label in August, with the hashtag #DONDA. She was also still heavily promoting (opens in new tab) the album just two weeks ago.

This head-turning red-carpet look was also almost like an all-black version of the wedding dress and thick veil (opens in new tab) Kardashian wore to a Donda listening party in August. This look also obscured her face.

The exes' relationship post-divorce (opens in new tab) has been somewhat confusing, and West unfollowing Kardashian on a platform that's so important to her is further muddying the waters.

On his already-infamous new album, the musician claimed both that Kardashian is still in love with him (opens in new tab) and that he cheated on her (opens in new tab). On the other hand, sources have claimed that he actually wants his wife back (opens in new tab), but that's she's prioritizing the kids above all else.

Kardashian has shown a lot of goodwill towards her ex recently. Beyond promoting his music, she also decided to keep "West" in her name (opens in new tab) and praised his influence on her (opens in new tab) during a podcast appearance. Make of that what you will.
