Internet awash with claims that Kanye West lost nine million followers in one day after his Twitter bromance with Donald Trump

But the claims have been proved false, with Twitter confirming his following still remains around 27m followers after sharing the bizarre claims that he and the US President shared the same "dragon energy".

The Internet rumours came after Jesus Walks rapper, 40, tweeted: "You don’t have to agree with Trump but the mob can’t make me not love him."

He also shared a picture of a Make America Great Again cap and wrote: "My MAGA hat is signed", followed by a string of fire emojis.

And the President appreciated the support, retweeting him and adding: "Thank you Kanye, very cool!”

But shortly after the exchange, "before and after" screenshots of Kanye's Twitter were shared online – claiming to show he initially had 27.8million followers before apparently plummeting to 18.6million.

The fan wrote: "Kanye losing 9 million followers because of the Trump tweet."

But Twitter confirmed to The Verge: "We can confirm that Kanye’s follower count is currently at approximately 27M followers.

"Any fluctuation that people might be seeing is an inconsistency and should be resolved soon."

The College Dropout MC has never hidden his admiration for Donald Trump, turning up at Trump Tower the day after the 2016 election and posing for pictures in the lobby.

Kanye has even hinted he could run for President in 2024, saying: "Keep America Great #Kanye2024".

Kanye even once joked: "When we become president we have to change the name of the plane from Air Force one to Yeezy force one".

Kanye, who has three children with Kim Kardashian also said he and the President share "dragon energy".

He added: "He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."

The rapper also took potshots at Obama, saying he hadn't made any changes in Chicago and shared a picture of a post by Chance the Rapper which read: "black people don't have to be Democrats."

But, perhaps feeling the strain of a follower exodus, Kanye later qualified: "My wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone.

"I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself."

Sun Online has contacted Kanye's team for comment.
