Kanye West, 34-year-old Grammy Award-winning rapper and producer, recently denied allegations that he was abusive to his ex-girlfriends while comparing himself to Jesus Christ in the new song "I Don't Like Remix."
"The media crucify me like they did Christ / They want to find me not breathing like they found Mike," West raps in the new song. "A girl will run her mouth only out of spite / But I'd never hit a woman never in my life."
West allegedly abused his ex-fiance and former model Alexis Phifer, who ended their 18-month engagement in 2008 because of his anger issues. A source close to Phifer explained West's alleged abuse of Phifer to In Touch magazine, which stemmed from an argument about the rapper's current girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
"It was at a Fourth of July party they had at their house [where] Kanye was on his laptop, and Alexis came behind him and saw that he was looking at the screen of his phone -- at a naked picture of Kim," the source told the publication. "They went outside, and Kanye pushed Alexis into some bushes with all his force. She was wearing a t-shirt and she got cuts and scratches everywhere and was bleeding."
Some speculated about West's abusive ways when he released his 2010 studio album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy." In a song called "Blame Game" West described choking his partner which some believed was a reference to ex-girlfriend and model Amber Rose.
"Been a long time since I spoke to you in a bathroom gripping you up (expletive) and choking you," West rhymes in the song. "What the (expletive) was I supposed to do."
Gossip website MediaTakeout also reported that Rose accused West of abuse at one point, when the rapper allegedly wrote an email speaking about the allegation.
"(Amber) told people I beat her and all kind of wild (expletive)," West reportedly wrote in March 2011.
Still, West and Kardashian seem to be discussing moving on with their romance in the form of a possible marriage. Us Weekly reports that the pair is discussing exchanging nuptials after years of friendship and a month of dating publicly.
"She wants to be with him as much as possible," the source told the magazine. "They really know and love each other."
