Page Six has posted an audio file of Kanye’s outburst, which came after the production team at ‘SNL’ began dismantling his stage before his performance, so they could use the space for a sketch.
In it, he’s heard saying: “Look at that shit, they took my fucking stage off a 'SNL' without asking me.”
He then adds: “Now I'm bummed. That and Taylor Swift, fake ass.”
This came after a representative for Taylor criticised one of his songs as “misogynistic”, after he name-checked her in his new track, ‘Famous’ suggesting they could “still have sex” and that he “made that bitch famous”.
While Taylor’s friends and family initially stuck up for her when the rap was first debuted, she later alluded to Kanye during her acceptance speech for Best Album at the Grammys earlier this week.
Addressing her young female fans, she said they shouldn’t let anyone “take credit for your accomplishments… or your fame”.
The story of Taylor and Kanye’s relationship is a long and complicated one, which begins in 2009, when the rapper interrupted her acceptance speech at the MTV VMAs, suggesting that Beyoncé was a more deserving winner.
Since then, they appeared to have mended their differences, but it sounds as though he could find himself off Taylor’s Christmas card list once again come December...
