Kanye West is going on the offensive, denying that he fired the driver who delivered his lunch two hours late. Previous reports had surfaced that the rapper/producer fired his driver after it took him two hours to pick up lunch from Selfridges Food Hall in London. According to a source in London’s Mirror, “The driver left at 1 PM and didn’t make it back until 3 PM 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 pissed off. He was really hungry.”
West’s camp debunked the story today with Perez Hilton, citing that it’s all a bunch of malarkey, calling the story a “complete fabrication” and assuring us that all of “Mr. West’s drivers are happily employed.”
Ye has been somewhat quiet of late and spending quite a bit of time across the pond, ostensibly, preparing for his upcoming showing at Paris Fashion Week. The sometimes-womenswear designer is slated to show his second line on March 6th at 9:30 PM. Despite harsh initial reviews, his debut eponymous women’s showing last year drew A-listers like designer Alexander Wang, Vogue’s Anna Wintour and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
Kanye West was also recently tapped as MTV’s #3 “Hottest MC In The Game.” The nod for West after another successfuly year that include the highly anticipated Watch The Throne album followed by tour with big brother Jay-Z as well his own album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
