Reclusive Kanye West breaks cover wearing a religious balaclava… while tearful Kim Kardashian airs details about divorce misery on reality show
Reclusive Kanye West was spotted breaking cover on a sweltering day in Los Angeles wearing a balaclava that featured religious imagery.
The 43-year-old rapper, who has withdrawn from the spotlight following his divorce and controversial presidential campaign, was spotted in LA on Thursday.
His bizarre mask included small breathing holes in the front and two intricate images of Jesus including one image of Christ apparently being eaten by a whale, along with children wearing angel wings. Other symbols include a single dice.
His outing came just as his marriage split was playing out on TV.

Kim was seen breaking down in tears during Thursday’s episode of her family’s E! reality show – which was filmed last year – as she spoke candidly about the breakdown of her marriage.
Kim hinted that the reason for divorcing the ‘Heartless’ rapper after almost seven years of marriage was because he ‘deserves’ a wife who can travel from state to state with him.
Speaking to her sisters, she said: ‘I honestly can’t do this anymore.

‘Why am I still in this, like, place where I’m stuck for years? Like, he goes and moves to a different state, every year, I have to be together so I can raise the kids, you know? And he’s an amazing dad, he’s done an amazing job.’
The Skims founder admitted she feels like a ‘failure’ and a ‘loser’
because this marks her third divorce after previous marriages to Damon Thomas and Kris Humphries.
She added: ‘I feel like a f****** failure, that it’s like, a third
f****** marriage. I feel like a f****** loser. But I can’t even think about that like, I want to be happy.’
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye in February, and although the decision wasn’t an easy one to make, she’s now at peace with her choice.

A source told People magazine on Friday: ‘Kim is doing great. She was really struggling around the time she filed for divorce. She was very upset about it and really didn’t want to file. She has come a long way since she filed for divorce, though. She’s very happy and convinced that she made the right decision.’
The insider also revealed Kim and Kanye’s children – North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two – are ‘doing well’, and that Kanye still sees them ‘often’.
Since the pair split, Kim and her children have continued to live in the Hidden Hills mansion she shared with 43-year-old Kanye, while the rapper has predominantly been living in Wyoming.
And a source previously said Kim will likely stay in the family house so that her brood don’t have to go through the stress of moving house.
Another insider said: ‘They both agree that the less stress the kids experience, the better. Kanye loves his kids. He wants them to be happy.
‘He doesn’t want to fight with Kim about anything.’
