In other Kanye news, it’s being reported that he is the reason why Kim and Reggie split. Please do your best to stifle your laughter so you that can properly read this:

“Reggie saw text messages on Kim’s phone from Kanye West and flipped out on her,” the source tells FOX411. And these weren’t your average friendly messages. “The texts referenced a night they hung out, how much fun he had, how hot Kim was, and more racy things that got Reggie’s imagination running,” says the source. When Reggie confronted Kim about it, the couple had a huge blow-up, and jealousy issues, which had been pretty much kept out of their relationship until this incident, surfaced, according to the insider. “They realized there were trust issues on both sides, and couldn’t go forward,” says the source. Reps for West and Kardashian did not respond to requests for comment.
