SHARE Kanye West contradicts President Obama’s phone claim

Obviously Kanye West was not happy to hear President Barack Obama tell Jimmy Kimmelon national TV that he had never called the rap superstar at his home. When the Commander-in-Chief guested on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last week, the talk show host asked him about West bragging that he chats with world leaders like the U.S. president.

Kimmel quoted from a West interview in which he said, “Obama calls the home phone,” then asked the president if that was true.

President Obama tried to downplay the issue, but he did say, “Look, I love his music. He’s incredibly creative. … I don’t think I’ve got his home number.” The president also told Kimmel he had met West exactly twice — once years ago, when he was still a member of the Illinois Senate, and then again as president, about six months ago.

When West was asked about the incident at the Los Angeles Airport (when he returned from Paris Fashion Week), the music superstar said Friday, “I love Obama. He called our house before. He knows that. Don’t try to pit us against each other. I love Obama.”
