Heads Up: Kanye Wants His Lunch On Time, Or Else You’re Fired

February 20, 2012  |  

People are known to get a little cranky when they’re hungry but Kanye took his divo status to new heights this weekend when he reportedly fired his driver for bringing him his lunch late.

In the midst of dropping rhymes and visualizing couture fashions for his clothing line during a recent stay in London, Kanye supposedly got a craving for Selfridges Food Hall lunch and sent his driver to fetch it. But when two hours passed between the time Kanye said he wanted something and the time he actually got it, the rapper reportedly became fed up and dismissed the driver upon his arrival. Well, he actually had someone else do the dirty work for him. According to an unnamed source:

“The driver left at 1pm and didn’t make it back until 3pm, 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—ed off. He was really hungry.”

The source added that Kanye must not know London suffers from horrendous traffic, but as MSN Now points out, this behavior sounds like typical Ye when it comes to his staff. Yeezy reportedly also recently added a clause to his employee contracts forbidding anyone working with him from wearing polyester. I wonder how many people will sign up to work for DONDA now?

Is Kanye too over the top for you or do you respect the demands celebrities are able to make?

    That Kanye West person has got to be one of the most arrogant celebs out there. A man of questionable talent and even less manners.

    I wouldn’t want them working for me if they wore polyester either! It’s supposed to be haute couture. Polyester is NOT fashionable. As for firing the driver, where the heck was he between 1 and 3? If you ducked out of work for 2 hours and came back like nothing was wrong, your boss would fire your a$$ too. 

  • I am using the ja_purity2 and have confined the template to the centre of the screen (much like the joomla website). Now I want to add a shadow on the left and right of the “confined” template/website but have no idea on how to do it.. Any help would be appreciated.. Thank You in advance..

  • ??, ??? ????? ????????.

  • There are some interesting closing dates in this article however I don’t know if I see all of them heart to heart. There’s some validity however I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we would like more! Added to FeedBurner as effectively

  • There are actually a number of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a nice level to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around things like that, but I am certain that your job is clearly identified as a good game. Both girls and boys feel the impact of just a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

    I would have fired him as well to be honest… Im a beast when it comes to my food… not to mention most days I only eat once bc Im constantly moving from the time I get up til my 12-16 hour days so when it time to eat… Im ready!.. hell my mom could have been 2 hours late and I would have fired her… point is if the traffic is that bad I would have called ahead… gave him a phone call on my way back to let him know… and being a driver in another country he should have also mapped out a backup plan… everybody has Google!…

    I agree thats what there paid flat out

    Foolishness. First world problems like a muthaf*cka.

    If my boss asked me to bring lunch and out took over forty minutes and I didn’t call I know I’d be fired in any professional setting that would new the expectation. Its just sensationalized because he is a celebrity and we like to say they’re behavior is unreasonable when that’s what would happen in any other setting

  • Moby

    two hours is a while though….

  • I’ve said that least 4082447 times. SCK was here

    I hope he knows the Lord is watching…

    He could not get lunch in 2 hours? If there was any major hold up he should of called to inform someone and then went to plan B. He probably should have called ahead to place the order. As a driver he should know what the traffic is like and made the proper provisions.

    I would have fired him also. Not for being late with the lunch but for not being resourceful enough.

    If you can’t manage to bring lunch in a 2 hour time span what else are you not able to accomplish?

    Lol it’s the Gemini in him…we like consistency and if that doesn’t happen, we get pee’d to no point BUT!!! That is not an excuse to treat people any ol kinda way. Here is my take on this though: people listen to the media entirely too much and as always, get half a story. Who knows what other untimely things the driver did, who knows what other actions the driver did which made Kanye last straw that azz. But folks are gonna fly into a tangent because it’s Kanye and we all think we know him. Kanye has been humble, since the VMA incident. Kanye has not even spoke on Amber Rose the way she has on him…Kanye has been quiet for a while. My only thing is give him the benefit of doubt, what other actions did this driver do to have Kanye dismiss him over this incident?

    I really thought that his struggles (losing his mom, broken engagement) would humble him, but apparently not. You can’t just treat people any kind of way.

    Next time go get your own d*mn lunch!
