“No one thought Paris would happen in a million years, and now he’s seen it happen to Kim,” he told The Sun. “It’s traumatizing.” 

He continued: “Ye is tired, he’s hurt, he feels betrayed and he’s probably feeling depressed." Adding, "You can’t trust anyone, even the people you’ve been paying to protect you. ... I think Kanye got to a point when he was fearing for his life and for his family’s safety because of what went down in Paris — I think it took a toll on him."

In 2015, Kanye's step-sister, Aliya Jones, told Heat magazine that she wouldn't be shocked if the rapper cheated on his reality star wife. “If you’re Kanye West and you’ve got women throwing themselves at you everywhere you go, there’s going to be temptations to stray," she said. 

Additionally, in 2018, the Kardashian-Jenner clan appeared on Family Feud against the West family. However, Kanye's siblings did not appear on the game show competition. Ye's cousins did.
