Kanye West's SNL Tantrum Leak Won't Stop His Smile: Rapper Heads to Paris as Audio Goes Viral
West's appearance marks the end of a dramatic week in the States
Yeezy has landed.
“Don’t f— with me,” West, 38, yells in the clip, which a source told PEOPLE was captured without his knowledge immediately after he learned the show’s lighting director drastically changed his set 30 minutes before showtime.
However, according to the insider, West was not directly shouting at show staff, whom he thanked after the variety show wrapped.
But the SNL set change wasn’t the only topic on his mind during the rant. “Now I’m bummed. That and Taylor Swift, fake ass,” he says, alluding to his renewed rift with the pop star.
West and Swift, 26, have a complicated history – he infamously interrupted her speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs – but they managed to move past the disagreement. In an August Vanity Fair piece, she explained how they became “friends”. However, relations changed yet again this month when West took credit for her fame in his new song “Famous,” rapping, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that bitch famous / God damn / I made that bitch famous.”
Swift indirectly responded to the claim – which West has insisted is not a “diss” – in her spirited Grammys acceptance speech on Monday, advising young women to not let people “undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.”
So far, West has not yet mentioned Swift’s speech on Twitter, his go-to social media outlet for sharing $53 million debt claims, railing against the education system and fueling a now-resolved feud with fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa and their mutual ex Amber Rose.
In the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday, a source explains that while Kim Kardashian West, 35, is a “very supportive wife” and “rarely complains,” her husband’s “compulsive tweeting” has caused “friction in their marriage.”
Adds the source: “Kim can’t stand it. She is all for self-promotion, but doesn’t approve of Twitter drama.”
There’s no drama with West’s latest tweet though – the rapper shared a sweet photo of 2½-year-old daughter North at his show, captioning it simply, “My heart.”
