The daytime host offered her opinion on the couple’s split, and what she believes should take place if their divorce is finalized.
She explained: “I don’t think he’ll ever get married again, but he should be allowed to go on and be single.
“It shouldn’t be like ‘we caught him kissing on a yacht’ it should be like ‘oh no, that’s his new boyfriend or his boo for the night’ or whatever.”
The audience was stunned at Wendy’s comment, as were fans on Twitter who believed the moment to be an “outing” of his sexuality.
One wrote: “Did @WendyWilliams just out Kanye?” with a finger snapping gif, while another asked earnestly: “Did Wendy Williams just out Kanye West???”
After seeing her audience reactions, Wendy was quick to pull back from her bold accusation, saying: “What, NO, I mean, he knows guys! I didn’t mean kissing guys, I meant kissing women.
“But he makes music, and he likes his guy squad,” she reasoned.
Wendy then turned to her producer, Norman, asking: “You know what, I want to ask you a favor. Can you please look up Jeffree Star? Get me his number immediately.”
The talk show host then elucidated to her viewers the rumored hook-up that took place between Kanye and makeup guru Jeffree Star.
She detailed: “Jeffree Star is a good friend of Kanye’s, he loves to party and has over 17 million followers on social media. Jeffree Star has more money than Kanye.”
“He spends a lot of time in Wyoming, which is where Kanye likes to stay.”
The gossip began via TikTok, when viral user Ava Louise, who is known for sharing a video of herself licking a plane toilet seat for the “coronavirus challenge”, shared that she wasn’t surprised by reports that Kim and Kanye are heading for divorce.
The blonde content creator claimed: “Kanye’s been hooking up with a very famous beauty guru, male beauty guru, a lot of people in the scene have known for a while.”
Though she added that she has no “concrete evidence,” she did assert that she heard the news from a Los Angeles entertainment lawyer.
Ava has since shared that “Kim K is suing her”over the allegations, although no official proof of this claim has come to light.
Jeffree seems to be relishing in the rumor, by taking to his Instagram to share a photo of himself with long rainbow-colored locks and a pink robe.
“I’m ready for Sunday Service,” he captioned the image in an effort to reference Kanye’s famous Christian gatherings.
The makeup mogul’s photo was snapped in Wyoming, where Kanye owns a $28million ranch.
He also ventured to Snapchat where he videotaped himself identifying his location, “I am here in the beautiful state of Wyoming.
“Hi snow in the background. Today I woke up and um, it’s been a very interesting day.”
The Sun has contacted reps for Jeffree and Kanye’s comments, as the makeup artist is thought to have bought a home in the western state at the end of 2020 to write his autobiography.
