Kanye West 'Did Not Yell at SNL Staff,' Source Says
Kanye West rocks a Yeezus hoodie while departing from LAX Airport on Wednesday (February 17) in Los Angeles.
Earlier in the day, audio was leaked of the 38-year-old rapper yelling behind-the-scenes at Saturday Night Live the week before.
“He did not yell at SNL staff,” a source told Access Hollywood. “This audio was secretly recorded while he was venting his frustration in a private moment with his team. He found out his stage design was changed and taken apart under the direction of the show’s lighting director without anyone’s approval. He had spent an entire day rehearsing and a lot of hard work into the performance. Dramatic set changes were made 30 minutes before going live.”
“It should be understandable why he was upset after being completely blindsided,” the source said. “Later in the evening, after everything was fixed and following his performance, Kanye was seen hugging Lorne Michaels just before the goodnights. And he stayed afterwards to chat with the staff and the cast, and thanked the producers on his way out the door.”
