Besides run-ins with the paparazzi, Kanye West has been mostly out of the public eye in 2023, following a tumultuous end to 2022. Even his attorneys are reportedly having trouble trying to locate him. He reportedly married Yeezy designer Bianca Censori back in January.

He returned to Instagram with a cryptic post in March following a social media hiatus. He jumped back into the headlines a few weeks later when he claimed he likes Jewish people again after seeing Jonah Hill in the film 21 Jump Street. Ye's Donda Academy made headlines earlier this month when two former teachers sued the school. The rapper recently deactivated his Instagram account.
