UPDATE —

According to TMZ, Donda Academy is back open just hours after announcing its closing. In the email obtained, it says that the school is back open “with a vengeance” starting tomorrow.  Parents allegedly received an email at midnight stating, “Join us tomorrow morning in worship for the return of Donda Academy. With the help of our parents and community, we are back and returning with a vengeance! The children of Donda are going to change the world. Apologies for the late email! See you bright and early!”

It is unclear what is going on and why the confusion, but Ye also made his return back to social media to speak out about what’s going on with him.
