Kanye West shocked Hollywood when he donned a MAGA hat in support of President Trump but something he told a fellow rapper is surprising people once again: He's now a born-again Christian.
Nicki Minaj, while hosting "Queen Radio" on Apple Music, said West told her he turned to God after being hospitalized and diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2016. She made the announcement during a discussion about faith in the entertainment industry with special guest Chance The Rapper, who recently went on a sabbatical to "learn the Word of God."
"Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or aren’t spiritual as we are...then when you find people, because I was just with Kanye, and he told me he's a born-again Christian now," the female rapper said.
West, who recently asked Trump to bail out A$AP Rocky in Sweden, has been hosting church services weekly, dubbed "Sunday Service," inviting pastors like Rich Wilkerson, Jr., who married West and Kim Kardashian in 2014, to give a sermon. He's also been collaborating with several artists to remix and sing worship songs.
