Kanye West is upping the ante on his feud with his ex-wife's family.

Despite the Donda rapper recently trying to make amends with Kim Kardashian, it seems like that same sentiment isn't being extended to other members of the family.

The artist, now formally known as Ye, briefly updated his Instagram profile picture to an image of his former mother-in-law Kris Jenner.

A photo of the smiling momager was only in place as the rapper's profile picture for a few moments before it was changed back to an all-black image.

Fans were completely confused about the random change on Kanye's Instagram account and flocked to social media to discuss the potential motive behind it.

However, an apparent explanation for the move has been offered.

On his Instagram Story, the rapper said he 'posted Kris with thoughts of peace and respect'.

“Let’s change the narrative," he added.

Kanye was earlier warned in the past about mentioning Kris Jenner on social media or in the press.

During a particularly slew of sledges against the Kardashian clan, Ye shared a message thread he had with his ex-wife, where ‘Kim’ begged him to stop mentioning her mother’s name.

“From my mom - PLEASE,” the text read.

“Tell him to please stop mentioning my name. I’m almost 67 years old and I don’t always feel great and this stresses me to no end.”

"Can u please stop," another message reads.

The ‘All of the Lights’ singer instead appeared to tell Kim he wanted their children to be educated at his own Donda Academy rather than making ‘sex tapes’, an apparent dig at the beauty guru's past.

He also hit out at some of the partners of the Kardashians in a different social media post.

Among the since-deleted posts, the rapper labelled Khloe’s ex Tristan Thompson, Kourtney’s ex Scott Disick and Kylie’s partner, Travis Scott as ‘c** donors’.

He wrote: “Calling my fellow c** doners (sic) We in this 2gthr (together).”

The following slide revealed that the musician googled the term with the headline 'Become a Sperm Donor - Earn Up To $1500' just for extra punch.

But, despite the petty sandbox comments, Kanye explained in an interview with Good Morning America that he has a newfound respect for Kim Kardashian in the wake of their very public and bitter divorce.

He told the news programme: “This is the mother of my children, and I apologise for any stress that I have caused, even in my frustration because God calls me to be stronger.”

How he feels about the rest of the family is up for you to decide.
