Kanye West has seemingly suggested he cheated on Kim Kardashian and struggled with booze during their marriage.
The rapper released his new album Donda last week and a track called Hurricane features lyrics which appear to point towards major issues in his marriage to Kim.
The pair, who are parents to four kids together, split at the start of this year and are currently going through divorce proceedings.
In Hurricane, Kanye raps: “Here I go actin’ too rich / Here I go with a new chick / And I know what the truth is / Still playin’ after two kids / It’s a lot to digest when your life always movin’.”
Another part of the song also suggests he wasn’t happy at home and makes reference to “alcohol anonymous”.

He went on: “Architectural Digest, but I needed home improvement / Sixty-million-dollar home, never went home to it.
‘Genius gone clueless, it’s a whole lot to risk / Alcohol anonymous, who’s the busiest loser?”
The words also seem to reference the fact that Kanye started spending more time at his ranch in Wyoming over the last few months of the marriage while Kim stayed in Los Angeles with their kids.
An insider told PageSix Kane is using the track to accept responsibility for what went wrong in his marriage to Kim.
The source said: “The song is in a way his testimony of everything he did wrong and taking accountability for their marriage breakdown…
“If you look closer to the lyrics he is referring to his infidelity during his marriage with Kim, even after two kids.”
The insider added that the infidelity rumours are in no way linked to model Irina Shayk, who Kanye was rumoured to have dated following his split from Kim.
The pair parted ways after a rocky few months, during which Kanye was said to have publicly humiliated Kim by airing private details of their marriage during a campaign rally as part of his doomed run for president last year.
He told the rally in South Carolina the couple had considered an abortion when Kim was pregnant with their first child, daughter North.
After Kanye went on to post a series of fury-filled tweets, Kim later told fans the rapper was struggling with his bi-polar disorder and he later apologised.
In her statement, Kim wrote: “As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand…
“Living with bipolar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams or creative ideas.”
Kanye then added a tweet saying sorry, writing: “I would like to apologise to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me.
“To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me.”
