Lord Disick Is An 'American Psycho'

Kanye West unveils bloody 'Yeezus' short film starring Scott Disick and Kim Kardashian's BFF Jonathan Cheban.

Now that's some family synergy.

Kanye West has tapped into his girlfriend -- and mother of his first child -- Kim Kardashian's circle of friends for his latest project, enlisting the help of Scott Disick and Jonathan Cheban to star in an American Psycho-inspired short film to promote his latest album, Yeezus.

In the clip, which is now airing on the rapper's official website, Disick channels Christian Bale's Patrick Bateman character from the famous 2000 horror flick. Meanwhile, Cheban acts as the businessman's rival Peter Allen, who was played by Jared Leto in the film.

True to the Brett Easton Ellis adaptation, the homage has plenty of bloodshed as an axe-wielding Disick hacks Cheban to pieces while listening to West's "New Slaves."

West and Disick intended to unveil the mini-movie at a listening party on Friday, but the two abruptly left the soiree after getting word that West's "baby mama" was in labor.

Despite missing out on the party (and having the album leaked prior to the official release date), Yeezus has been gaining momentum. Recently, its track "Black Skinheads" was used in the trailer for Martin Scorsese's upcoming Leonardo DiCaprio drama, The Wolf of Wall Street

Yeezus is out in stores Tuesday. Lyrics from the album are now available on Directlyrics.
