Kanye West has been "kicked off" Twitter after reportedly sharing the personal details of Forbes' chief content officer with his 30 million followers.

According to actor Rick Fox, West has been blocked from using the social media site for 12 hours. Fox tweeted: "My friend @kanyewest wants you all to know that he was kicked off of @Twitter for 12 hours."

West posted a string of tweets on Wednesday evening, hitting out at his record label and declaring that all artists should own their masters.

The 43-year-old rapper wrote: "Universal won't tell me what my masters cost because they know I can afford to buy them."

He continued: "Everyone please cover me in prayer... I am one of the most famous people on the planet and Universal won't tell me what my masters cost because they know I can afford them ... Black Lives Matter."

West also said that he has ten contracts with Universal and proceeded to post every page from those contracts, calling on "every lawyer in the world" to look at them. He added that he "will use everything in his legal power" until "all artist contracts are changed".

In another Tweet, West appeared to be urinating on one of his Grammy trophies that he had placed in a toilet with "I won't stop" written above the video.

Following his long series of social media posts, West was locked out of his account after he reportedly shared the phone number of Forbes' editor Randall Lane.
