Chauffering for Kanye West is no easy gig. Whispers are awash that the “All of the Lights” star turned fashion designer recently fired his driver for delivering his lunch two hours late.
Time is of the essence — especially when Yeezy needs his lunch!
Hip-hopster Kanye West‘s alleged man-diva ways have reportedly cost a man his job.
Word on the curb has it that the “Otis” hit-maker sent a British chauffeur headed for the unemployment line after the driver took more than two hours to deliver the rapper’s afternoon eats.
Kanye was hankering for a lunch from London’s renowned Selfridges Food Hall last week. But all Hades broke loose when the star had to wait for his midday feeding.
“Kanye decided he wanted a Selfridges lunch and sent the driver out. Obviously, he’s never heard of the Tube, and London suffers from horrendous traffic,” an unnamed source told Britain’s Sunday Mirror.
“The driver left at 1 p.m. and didn’t make it back until 3 p.m., 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 p****d off. He was really hungry.’ “
Oh — while we’re on the subject of divadom: Did you hear about that leaked rider from Kanye’s recent tour of Australia that made its way online this week?
Apparently, late deliveries aren’t the things Sir Yeezy strongly prohibits.
Drivers are not allowed to wear man-made fibers, per the orders of the famed fashionisto. Chauffeurs must instead wear 100 percent cotton at all times.
The lyricist also requires Versace towels, which are cut into small squares, allowing Kanye to wipe his brow on stage.
