When Kanye West spits “Don’t do no press, but I get the most press kid,” on “Mercy,” you have to know that he isn’t kidding. This time, ‘Ye is being accused of tweeting a naked photo of Kim Kardashian from his personal account, and deleting it minutes later. It all sounds unlikely, and a rep for Mr. West confirms that the rumor is ‘laughable,’ while the Kardashian look-a-like in the photo has already stepped up to identify herself.
A rep for Mr. West has confirmed that the accusations are bogus, telling MTV’s RapFix, “In regards to this “story” that Kanye posted and then took down intimate pictures on his Twitter account: TOTALLY FALSE. Laughably so. This phantom tweet never occurred on his account. This is obviously the desperate, sad act of someone seeking to gain media exposure by exploiting Kanye’s notoriety. Kanye doesn’t even know this person, has never seen this picture, and hasn’t been on his Twitter account for a day. It’s a shame that in our media culture, the rampant spread of this kind of irresponsible “reporting” occurs with such regularity and with such impunity.”
The photo of a naked woman getting her snack on, was linked to West because the subject resembles Kardashian, but according to TMZ porn star Amia Miley has confirmed that she’s actually the one in the shot. Miley apparently tweeted the same photo of herself in 2011. Just to remind us.
Things Kim and Kanye do share on Twitter, however? ’His & Hers Air Yeezys.’ ’Ye is gearing up to release his anticipated G.O.O.D. Music album this summer, dropping the new video for “Mercy” last week.
