    Kanye West once again pushed the envelope this week when he said some women extort money from their rich boyfriends in exchange for an abortion.

    Kanye West is wading into Justin Bieber territory.

    Like the 16-year-old pop star who made waves after recently sharing his anti-abortion stance, Ye weighed-in against what he called "gold-digging" women who undergo the procedure.

    “An abortion can cost a ballin’ n--ga up to 50gs maybe a 100. Gold diggin’ b-----s be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my n--gas!” West tweeted Wednesday.

    After getting a few angry Twitter replies (and a few “true dats”), the 33-year-old rapper clarified that his controversial comment wasn’t based on personal experience.

    “It ain’t happen to me but I know people,” he added.

    One person who responded negatively to West’s profanity-filled 133 characters was singer Lily Allen, who has had two miscarriages in three years.

    “Never has a tweet put me in such a bad mood. This is wrong on so many levels,” the 25-year-old Brit wrote on Twitter.

    Allen told a British radio show that having kids “is ultimately my main goal in life and more of a priority than flying around the world jumping up and down on stage singing songs,” according to People.
