Kim Kardashian West continues to defend husband Kanye West in her Twitter feud with Donda's House, a charity started in his late mother's name.
West and musical collaborator Che Smith, best known as Rhymefest, founded Donda's House in 2011, a nonprofit organization aimed at paying tribute to his mother, Donda West and helping the youth in Chicago. The drama started on Saturday after Rhymefest tweeted that West had abandoned Donda's House and accused West of no longer caring about Chicago youth. That prompted a series of angry tweets from Kardashian about Rhymefest's musical relationship with West.
Which brings us to Sunday, where Kardashian picked back up, describing in a tweet storm how she says the charity started, and how Rhymefest became involved. She then tore into him as an opportunist.
"Kanye gave his 'friend' an opportunity to run an organization on his own. So now that Kanye is being publicly shamed for not being involved makes no sense and, at this exact time, just seems very calculated," she wrote on Twitter. "I have and will always applaud any efforts to give back to the community. To fight for justice and to help uplift the youth. But I will never tolerate someone who was close to Kanye who attempts to use his late mother’s name to publicly shame him while pretending to do good."
After several years of lack of performance from the organization and Kanye going through personal financial issues, he could no longer fund salaries. Rhymefest asked to take it over and Kanye agreed with no financial strings attached.

Donda's House on Monday returned to Twitter, but didn't address Kardashian's tweets. Instead, it promised updates in the near future.
"We’d like to thank everyone for their patience, love & support! We will speak about next steps as soon as we can!" the charity wrote. "We are taking the time to meet with our students, staff & volunteers who we are most concerned about & will update you publicly when we can. Thanks for your patience!"
