“Pete thinks it’s totally hilarious,” an insider tells Page Six. “Not just that — he thinks the whole [tabloid drama with him, West and Kardashian] is hilarious. He loves it.”
Pete has reportedly beefed up security in the wake of the threats. “Pete isn’t worried about Kanye, but he is concerned about the massive fanbase that Kanye has. His devoted followers listen to his songs and act upon them. That’s why Pete is now using security,” a source tells Radar Online.
Jake Paul said he would be joining Ye and coming after Pete, who made a series of jokes at his expense during the YouTuber’s boxing match with Ben Askren last year. “Kanye & I on his ass now. Soon to get slapped,” Paul tweeted.

Despite the drama, Ye’s diss has only strengthened Pete’s relationship with Kim. “The whole craziness with Kanye last week has brought Kim and Pete closer,” another source tells Page Six.
Last week, Ye claimed that Kim stopped him from entering her home with their kids because Pete was there. However, a source close to Kim says that the “SNL” comedian has yet to be introduced to her kids.
