The latest feud involving rappers Kanye West, Drake and Travis Scott appears to be quashed.

The issue had begun with Scott's recent song "Sicko Mode," which featured Drake and in which the two rap about preferring "checks over stripes," a veiled reference to sportswear makers Nike and Adidas. Nike, with which Scott and Drake have promotional deals, uses a checkmark-style logo it calls a "swoosh," while rival Adidas, with which West has a deal, has a logo consisting of three parallel stripes.

West, 41, in a since-deleted tweet Friday that was captured by many on social media, wrote, "Meeting with Trav tonight bet it never be a checks over stripes line again on a Trav song on Donda," West's company that, among other ventures, has a Donda Music division named after the rapper's late mother, Donda West.

A young woman under the account A.T. Tunechi reposted West's tweet Saturday night with the comment "Travis Scott is my kinda petty," followed by two "laugh until you cry" emoji. It was retweeted approximately 1,500 times and liked 4,400 times, and prompted Scott's girlfriend, reality-TV star Kylie Jenner, youngest of the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" adult siblings, to respond on Sunday.

"He's not being petty," tweeted makeup mogul Jenner, 21, who has a 10-month old daughter, Stormi, with Scott, 26. Offering a vague explanation about a sweatshirt design, she went on to to say, "Everyone is good, moved on, living life. for anyone who wasn't aware - travis has had a deal w Nike and still does. point is.. it's all been talked out. It's only positive energy."

West already had tweeted on Saturday morning, before Tunechi's tweet, that, "Drake and Trav both love Ye [i.e. Kanye] more than anyone and I love those guys back. We love everyone." A few hours later he added, "Met with Trav at my crib this morning   We expressed ourselves It's all love."

Scott has not commented on social media.
