Twitter has suspended Kanye West’s account after his tweet Thursday that had a headshot picture of Phoenix Suns All-Star guard Chris Paul with the caption “I caught this guy with Kim.”

West is referring to his ex-wife, television personality Kim Kardashian.

This was after West posted a swastika with the Star of David. The controversial rapper has been under heavy criticism for anti-Semitic comments and praising Adolf Hitler, which he again did Thursday during an interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

On West’s account, Twitter wrote it suspends accounts “that violate” its rules with a “learn more” link. TMZ reported Friday the swastika post is why West's Twitter account was suspended.

TMZ also reported West’s allegation about Paul and Kardashian is false, citing an unidentified source.

“He has a history of falsely accusing her of also having affairs with Meek Mill, Drake and countless others,” the source told TMZ. “Kanye has for years deflected his own awful behavior, infidelities and obsession with porn and sex addiction to abuse and slut shame Kim. She wants to be left alone so she can focus on the well-being of their children.”

West’s tweet went viral to the point Paul has been trending – CP3 and Kim, Chris Paul, Not CP3 and Damn CP3.

Paul is married and has two children.

The veteran All-Star will miss his 12th straight game Friday against Houston at Footprint Center with what the Suns have been calling a sore right heel.

Paul was at Friday morning’s shootaround at team practice facility.
