Kanye West and Bianca Censori had a huge fight after she warned him not to make anti-Semitic slurs at a listening event for his new album, according to insiders, who claim the blow out was the reason behind his wife’s no show at his New York event and after-party last week.
The controversial rapper, 46, was reportedly left fuming on Thursday night after the livestream from Chicago’s United Center cut out when he spewed the lyrics: ‘And I’m still crazy, bipolar, anti-Semite / And I’m still the king.’
Bianca, 29, is said to have warned him about singing the problematic lyrics from his new album Vultures, and as a result refused to attend the scheduled events in New York the following night.
It comes as those close to the Australian designer, who recently made headlines for wearing a clear raincoat with nothing underneath, fear she is being ‘used’ by Kanye to promote the divisive new record – a joint venture with Ty Dolla $ign.

Kanye took to the stage on Friday in NYC at the UBS arena – but Bianca was not there to support her husband at the event
As a result of their spat, Kanye arrived to his album release after-party at The Harbor (pictured) without Bianca. He reportedly left within 10 minutes without thanking organizers
‘Their argument Friday was because Kanye lost it when they cut off his song at the listening event the night before, due to his unacceptable lyrics,’ a source close to Bianca told DailyMail.com exclusively.
‘Bianca was trying to say that he should not include another anti-Jewish lyric – especially after the backlash he got in Dubai when the album’s first anti-Semitic lyric surfaced.’
They continued: ‘Kanye has been taking out all of his frustrations over this on Bianca because he, literally, has no one else that wants to listen to his crap.
‘He is using her for free promotion, putting her on the cover of his album, using her as a model for the clothing and she is allowing him to have this control.
‘She has literally become a prop, like a remote-control doll, that he can get to do anything he wants.’
When the rapper appeared in New York City on Friday for an official listening event at UBS Arena, Bianca was not by his side, and she failed to show up for the $300-a-ticket after-party at Harbor NYC Rooftop nightclub.
The domestic appeared to rile Kanye who reportedly arrived in a ‘nasty mood’ wearing a full face mask and left after 10 minutes, much to the frustration of organizers.
‘Kanye really screwed over the people who threw him the after-party and he did not seem to care,’ a separate source told DailyMail.com.
Back in 2021, ahead of the release of his 10th studio album Donda, he previously hosted multiple listening parties for fans in Chicago and Atlanta (pictured in January 2024)

‘He showed up several hours late and he did not have Bianca with him. He was in a nasty mood, and was wearing a mask the whole time.
‘Kanye stayed for 10 minutes and then left without thanking anyone who helped to organize the event. The place was packed with fans that where there to see him and they were playing his new album.’
The venue is owned by George Karavias, the founder of Dream Hospitality Group, who has hosted bashes for everyone from Rhianna to A$AP Rocky.
The source added: ‘Organizers put so much into this to make it a phenomenal after-party for Kanye and his crew, only for him to completely s**t on them.’
Kanye announced his NYC event for Vultures earlier this month – sharing a post that read ‘Vultures UBS Arena New York 02 09 24.’
The announcement came two months after he debuted the first single, Vulture, off the record, at a listening party in Dubai. Video footage showed him singing the ‘offensive’ lyrics: ‘How am I anti-Semitic? I just f***ed a Jewish b****.’
The lyrics prompted a furious backlash and was even condemned by the American Jewish Committee, among others.
In December, Bianca reportedly pushed her husband to apologize to the Jewish community – as she was ‘tired’ of having to ‘babysit’ him and feared his behavior was putting them in danger.
‘She told him that his recent behavior was unacceptable and that he needs to apologize because he was putting them in danger and setting a horrible example for his children,’ a source told DailyMail.com at the time.
‘Bianca is really sick of his attention seeking and she knows that this is not who he truly is, but it is making her look like she is anti-Semitic which is so far from the truth.
‘She has many Jewish friends who she loves dearly and he knows this.’
Kanye apologized in Hebrew on Instagram for any offence cause, claiming he ‘deeply regrets’ his words
Kanye acknowledged his behavior on Instagram, telling his 19 million followers in Hebrew: ‘I deeply regret any pain I may have caused.’
His apology came after a string of unhinged and offensive outbursts, which included his anti-Semitic lyrics in Dubai and praising Hitler at a listening party in Sin City in December. Bianca was noticeably absent.
During his rant, he stated that ‘all the rich f*****s’ in the room have their kids in ‘Zionist schools.’
The source added: ‘It is very upsetting to Bianca and he does it anyway. He just waits until she is gone. By the time that she finds out what he’s done and said, it is too late.
‘And now it’s at the point where she is starting to fear for her safety – not because of Kanye hurting her or anything like that. It is more like she fears that a Jewish extremist could potentially do something to hurt both of them.’
During Thursday’s listening event in Chicago, Veeps streaming service cut off the livestream when the lyric ‘I am anti-Semitic’ played
Kanye’s anti-Semitic behavior started in October 2022 when the ex-husband of Kim Kardashian shared a tweet that stated he planned to go ‘death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.’
Shortly after the tweet, the Praise God rapper told Piers Morgan he only meant to take aim at certain specific Jews, who he felt exploited him.
When the talk show host contended the comments were ‘as racist as anything you’ve been through,’ the Gold Digger rapper retorted, ‘That’s why I said it. I fought fire with fire.’
In an interview with right-wing talk show host Alex Jones in early December, Kanye praised Hitler for his ‘redeeming qualities.’
