Rapper Kanye West, also known as "Ye," was spotted leaving a Los Angeles studio on Tuesday morning with rappers French Montana and Big Sean. The appearance raised eyebrows given the history West shares with the two musicians and after recent incidents involving West. 

In November, West had expressed regret in signing Big Sean to his record label. Big Sean would later fire back in a podcast, saying he initially thought the comment was "hilarious," but later said he "took it personal."

French Montana, meanwhile, had dated West's sister-in-law Khloe Kardashian for eight months. West was married to Kim Kardashian for about seven years. The couple separated in 2021.

The sighting may suggest that Big Sean and French Montana may appear on West's upcoming album, "Donda 2."

West, 44, has been the subject of numerous situations that have drawn attention from entertainment publications. 

Last week, West admitted he punched a man after he had been accused of battery. Hours earlier, West reportedly had spent time with his actress girlfriend Julia Fox, as well as Madonna and Floyd Mayweather. In a "diss track," West later threatened to “beat” Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend, "Saturday Night Live" cast member Pete Davidson.

West recently posted a video in which he claimed that he wasn't given the address of his daughter's birthday in what appeared to cast more doubt about his relationship with Kim Kardashian.

In the video, he vents about the situation. He cites "games" that are being played and asked for support from his supporters. "I'm taking control of my narrative this year," West said.

He later said in a video that he was given the address of the birthday party from rapper Travis Scott, who is in a relationship with Kim Kardashian's half-sister Kylie Jenner.
