Just when we thought we were finally free of this drama, rapper Ye briefly returned to Instagram following the news of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian's split from SNL comedian Pete Davidson.

And much like during the early days of Kardashian's and Davidson's romance, Ye's take on the break-up has left many unsettled.

Ye made waves during the pair's romance for making thinly veiled threats of violence against Davidson on social media and creating a music video for his song "Eazy" in which depictions of Davidson were brutalized and buried alive.

Now in the wake of their break-up, Ye posted a Photoshopped New York Times front page announcing Davidson's death in a since-deleted Instagram post.

See a screenshot below.

The fake Times headline, which uses Ye's derisive nickname for Davidson—"Skete"—read:

"Skete Davidson Dead at Age 28."

The pair began dating last fall when Kardashian appeared on SNL, but relations with Ye were contentious from the start.

His harassment of the couple escalated to a point he was banned from Instagram over threatening posts about the couple. Several celebrities spoke out publicly about it, likening Ye's behavior to stalking and expressing worry about Kardashian's safety.

As a result of the furor, Ye was reportedly seeking behavioral health treatment in April after agreeing to stop harassing Kardashian and Davidson, with a source citing his desire to become "a better human and a better dad."

He had not posted on Instagram since the conflict reached its peak until the now-deleted post, in which he also attacked fellow musician Kid Cudi, mocking him for a recent incident in which crowd members at a concert threw water bottles at him.

The subheadline on Ye's Photoshopped Times cover read:

“Kid Cudi meant to play funeral but fearful of bottle throwers."

Ye has publicly tangled with Kid Cudi over the latter's friendship with Davidson.

On Twitter, many were not exactly enthusiastic about the return of Ye's antics.

Others couldn't help but crack jokes about the situation.

Ye reportedly removed the Instagram post at Kardashian's insistence after initially refusing.

Kardashian is said to have found the post "appalling."

She reportedly vowed to never return to her former husband because of "the way he’s treated the people she loves and respects" according to a source who spoke to theDaily Mail.
