Kanye West is vehemently denying all reports that his management team has urged him to take anger management classes. The rumor surfaced on July 4, when Chicago Sun-Times columnist Bill Zwecker reported [click to read] he heard as much from someone in West‘s camp.
“A West insider tells me the entertainer’s own management team dreamed up the idea, for two reasons: to help his personal psychological well-being and relationship with friends–and to aid in him snaring lucrative endorsement deals,” says Zwecker.
Zwecker also added two major corporations were hesitant to work with Kanye due to his ill-timed emotional outbursts. Apparently none of the unnamed corporations Zwecker mentioned were Louis Vuitton. During fashion week West told Women’s Wear Daily [click to read] he is working on a line of men’s shoes and a separate line of women’s clothing for the high end company.
After Rolling Stone ran a similar anger management story on July 7, West responded to the anger management rumor via his own blog at Kanyeuniversecity.com [click to read] saying, “I have never had any conversations about anger management. If anything, I need anger enhancement!!…I told the media you can’t make up lies about me because I have a media outlet myself. Oh and sidebar I don’t know if everyone has realized this yet but I don’t do interviews if there’s anything I wanna say I’ll say right here on my own blog.”
