Kim Kardashian Kanye West North West

Rumors spread of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian converting to Islam after meeting with Minister Louis Farrakhan Muhammad, the leader of the Nation of Islam.

Rap mogul Kanye West, his reality TV star wife Kim Kardashian, their daughter North West, together with Georgian rapper Cyhi The Prynce, took pictures and shared a meal with Louis Farrakhan Muhammad. The meeting came as a surprise to fans and critics of the rap star, and it sparked a fierce rumor that the entire West family was planning to convert to Islam, with reports that North West was to be “baptized” into the faith. The unfounded rumor has since been dispelled and we now know that the visit had nothing to do with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, or North West converting to Islam. Sources close to the family have confirmed that the rumor is false, and that the West family is still practicing their Christian faith.

Kanye West has always been vocal about his religious beliefs. “You do not want to go against the power. I’m working on one mission, and that’s a mission from God,” the rap star said on a Power 106 FM appearance where he defended comparing himself to innovators like Steve Jobs. Kanye West also recently spoke about his strong Christian beliefs on stage during a concert. This further adds credence to the fact that the rapper has not had a sudden change of heart regarding his religion.

Rapper CyHi the Prynce, who joined for the visit, was the first to break out word about the meeting on his official Instagram.

CyHi wrote alongside the post: “Me YE North and @kimkardashian went to see the Minister @louisfarrakhan and I was honored the words he spoke to us were very encouraging, said CyHi in the caption. “Then we at some good soup and Ye asked me to rap a verse for him so I had to give him the first verse to #Mandela he said I have a brilliant and deep mind!!! Great experience with his family and Ye’s family!!! I came along way from getting kicked out of highschool in the 10th grade lol hey now I might be the most influential person to ever come out my highschool crazy how GOD works!!! #Mr.Redan #Goodmusic #Family#Leaders”
