Stars including Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Ariana Grande and Kendrick Lamar appear to be among celebrities to have unfollowed Kanye West amid his controversial return to Twitter.

Users on the social media site claim to have used various checker sites to see who no longer followers the rapper after he tweeted his support of President Donald Trump.

The list of those knocking West off their timeline is said to include his own sister-in-laws Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.

West returned to the social media site after a period of absence last week, with a stream of tweets telling fans “not to follow the crowd” and that he was beginning to write a book in “real time”.
