The plot thickens! Rihanna’s ex-PR rep is saying that Kanye West didn’t actually write the lyrics about Taylor Swift in his controversial hit ‘Famous’ — that credit goes to someone else! HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details about these allegations; read on for the details!
Rapper Cyhi The Prynce, real name Cydel Young, 31, allegedly wrote all of the controversial lyrics about Taylor Swift on Kanye West‘s explosive hit “Famous,” according to a report from The Sun! Top music publicist Jonathan Hay, who used to rep Rihanna, claims that Cyhi is the true brains behind Kanye’s crazy song!
“The lyrics are written by Cydel,” Jonathan told The Sun. “Kanye got all the backlash but he isn’t even the one who wrote them. Cydel lays down the lines and Kanye will then okay them and perform them.” Wow! Interestingly, Cyhi The Prynce is credited as a songwriter on “Famous”. Could he have actually penned the lyrics that have caused one of the most famous feuds of all time?
Well, according to a source close to Kanye who spoke to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, that’s not the case! “Cyhi is a creative contributor on the song, in which he has been credited accordingly. However, the specific Taylor lyrics were written by Kanye himself,” the source said.
We’re sure that Kanye, 38, is not going to be happy about someone claiming to have taken credit for one of his most famous lyrics ever! Do you think Kim Kardashian, 35, is going to show the receipts on Snapchat?
Kanye and Kim graced the July 2016 cover of Harper’s Bazaar, and while they declined to comment on the fight, they managed to throw a little shade Taylor’s way. Kanye refused to name a Taylor song that he liked, and Kim said that she used to be a Taylor fan. Ouch!
We’ve reached out to Kanye’s rep for comment.
