Khloe Kardashian has sent a sweet birthday message to her once brother-in-law Kanye West, following news of his divorce from Kim Kardashian. She later hit back at criticism of the post.

Kim and Kanye were surrounded by split speculation in January, when reports suggested they were going their separate ways after six years of marriage. Kim officially filed the divorce petition in February, with TMZ reporting the reality star asked for joint legal and physical custody of their four kids, North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, one.

By April, Kanye had responded to the petition, also asking for joint legal and physical custody.

Since then, though we've had some retrospective insights into the split on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, news about Kanye has been relatively split. But now, Khloe Kardashian has shared a post to wish him a happy 44th birthday.

She wrote on Instagram, "Happy birthday to my brother for life!!! Have the best birthday Ye! Sending you love and endless blessings!!"

It's not clear when the photo is from - possibly Kim's 40th back in October? - but fans have questioned why Khloe chose that pic in particular.

"Out of all pictures this one馃槶" one person wrote, while another added, "Just Kanye being Kanye and wearing a t shirt in the water." Someone else said, "This pic is.. awkward馃槀."

Kim also commenting with the red balloon emoji ("馃巿"), before one fan comment in particular got under Khloe's skin. It read:

"I'm sorry Kim. The whole 'brother for life' thing is too petty for me. Your sister bond should be much more strong than feeling the need to say that. Your divorce was so hard on you even the picture is uncalled for. There is so many other pictures. Google could of been her friend. This wasn't cute but im glad your being strong through it all."

Khloe replied (via E!):

"Why are you even commenting on something you know nothing about? You don't think me and my sister's talk about one another's feelings? We are with one another every day. This is MY FAMILY. Not yours! Don't comment as if you in the know unless you are actually in the know. Weirdo!!"

Eek, Well, happy birthday, Ye!
