Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa has confronted rumors claiming he got into a heated exchange with Kanye West at last month’s Coachella music festival in light of remarks made toward current girlfriend Amber Rose.
According to Wiz, he never got an opportunity to meet up with Yeezy face-to-face.
“I did my set and we hung around for a bit, but we weren’t even there when fam was onstage,” Wiz said referring to himself and Rose. “Somebody made that up. I think they just wanted it to be that type of situation or they wanted to see something go down. It’s fun to talk about it and make jokes about, but in all reality, that didn’t even exist.” Wiz said he did hear Kanye’s lyrics though. He thought it was a low moment, that many people who look up to West may have been turned off by his lyrical alteration. He harbors no ill will, however. “It is what it is, and I’m doing my business and she’s doing her business and he’s doing his business and that’s what it is. I’m all about positivity and I’m going to keep it that way.” (MTV)
Last week, Rose also downplayed the altercation rumors.
The woman caught in the middle was a little hesitant striking down the rumor. “Was there a confrontation at Coachella?,” Amber asked, repeating the question. There is a long pause. “Rumors are crazy and people want things to happen and make it their real life and I guess that’s all I can really say about that.” (VIBE)
During his “Stronger” Coachella performance, Ye took a subliminal shot at his ex.
After an energetic hour long set at the Californian music festival, West and rapper Wiz Khalifa nearly came to blows in an ugly confrontation over Khalifa’s current girlfriend, the model Amber Rose. West, who used to date Rose, took a dig at his ex during a performance of his hit song ‘Stronger.’ The original lyrics of the song includes a line which says: “I’d do anything for a blonde dyke. And she’ll do anything if the time’s right”. Yet, with Rose standing on the side of the stage, West altered the word to: ‘I did anything for that blonde dyke. And she did anything when the time’s right.’ (Independent Online)
Additional reporting claimed a possible verbal altercation may have followed the performance.
Afterwards, sources claim, Wiz confronted West about the lyrics, explaining, “Wiz didn’t want to fight, he just wanted all this catty bulls**t to end.” But the source says that there was no peace made. “Kanye said something to Wiz and next thing you know security and people’s entourages were everywhere pushing and shoving. It could have got real ugly.” (Zimbio)
