Within 24 hours, Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has gone from the ultimate bad guy to typical Ye with reports claiming he fired his personal driver for delivering a late lunch now getting debunked.
Despite the initial reports, Ye's team have come forward to kill the negative buzz.
It sounded like nonsense to us, but you never know. Hollywood people sometimes let their egos get the better of them! Yesterday, we reported that Kanye West allegedly fired his London driver for being two hours late with his lunch from Selfridges. Was he blinded by hunger? Is he really that full of himself? The answer, according to Ye's people, who have contacted us EXCLUSIVELY, is none of the above. According to Kanye's camp, the story is a "complete fabrication" and all of "Mr. West's drivers are happily employed." Glad to hear it! And maybe in the future, he should just order in. Does London adhere to the "delivered in 30 minutes or free" rule?! LOL! (Perez Hilton)
Details of the alleged cause of termination landed online over the weekend.
Sir Kanye wanted a Selfridges Food Hall lunch while staying in London recently, sending his sent his driver to collect it. All ended in tears, though, according to a 'source', when the singer had to wait for his feed until mid-afternoon. "Kanye decided he wanted a Selfridges lunch and sent the driver out," the unnamed source said, adding: "Obviously, he's never heard of the Tube and London suffers from horrendous traffic. The driver left at 1pm and didn't make it back until 3pm, when the head of security told him: 'I'm sorry but I'm going to have to let you go. You took too long and Kanye got p---ed off. He was really hungry'." (Celebrity Fix)
No stranger to gossip and negative press, the rapper was recently cited for cheating on ex-girlfriend/model Amber Rose with reality star Kim Kardashian.
"Kim is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together," Amber exclusively told Star. "She's a homewrecker!" According to Amber, she was dating Kanye when he and Kim first hooked up -- and Kim was dating NFL star Reggie Bush! "They were both cheating," Amber, 28, said. "They were both cheating on me and Reggie with each other." Amber says it was Kim, 31, who instigated the whole affair by calling, texting and sending racy photos of herself to Kanye. "She was sending pictures, and I was like, 'Kim, just stop. Don't be that person,'" but apparently Kim didn't care enough to respond when Amber emailed her for an explanation. "I thought at least she'd be woman enough to respond to me. She never responded." Amber slammed Kim for her cheating ways. "It's very important that us women stick together and we don't f**k each other over like that." (Radar Online)
Despite Rose's remarks, Kim's sister Khloe recently came to her and Ye's defense.
"Kanye and Kim are friends. I love Kanye. Kanye is friends with Lamar [Odom] and myself. Kanye has been friends with Kim for a few years now. They at one point a few years ago [after dating Reggie Bush], they were talking and trying to go on a date here and there but it just didn't work out. ... I don't know Amber. A lot of people like to use my sister's name for their own benefit. I don't know but everything from even him being around my mom, him being around Lamar or even his kids, it's never been on that level. I do know that they're friends and I do think they might have that feeling for each other, I just don't think its worked timing wise." ("Sway in the Morning")
