Kanye West has deleted his Instagram account.

Just one day after the star returned to the picture sharing account on Valentine's Day (14.02.18) and spent nine hours posting pictures of famous couples, he abruptly deleted his profile again.

Kanye used his return to pay tribute to his wife, Kim Kardashian West.

His return post - which was also his profile picture - was not captioned but featured a simple white card with the words ''Happy Valentines Day Babe (sic)'' written in black on the cover.

He then shared pictures of largely-failed romances, including Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere, Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, and Johnny Depp and Kate Moss.

A number of stars featured in Kanye's montage a number of times, with Pamela Anderson pictured with three former partners, Tommy Lee, Kid Rock, and Brett Michaels, Brad Pitt also landing a trio of photos, alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, while he also shared pictures of Madonna with Sean Penn, Dennis Rodman - who was in another post with Carmen Electra - and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Some couples featured are still together, including Barack and Michelle Obama, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi and David and Victoria Beckham.

Kanye also gave a touching shout out to his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, sharing her photo with her late ex-husband Robert Kardashian.

The 'Only One' hitmaker finished his posting spree with two pictures of himself and his wife - with whom he has children North, four, Saint, two, and four-week-old Chicago - that were simply captioned ''Kimye''.

However, the following day Kanye decided to once again delete his account on the photo sharing platform, which he previously left last May.
