Kanye West has made a series of public pleas to reunite with Kim Kardashian 

Kim Kardashian West is continuing to focus on her co-parenting relationship with ex Kanye West amid the rapper's public pleas for her to get back together with him.

While performing at the Free Larry Hoover concert Thursday at the Los Angeles Coliseum, West, 44, dedicated his song "Runaway" to Kardashian West, 41.

After singing the lyrics, "I need you to run right back to me, baby," he added, "more specifically, Kimberly." The move was the latest in a series of statements he has made about wanting to reunite his family.

A source tells PEOPLE that Kardashian West "knows where Kanye's head is" but "ignores it."
