Kanye West, an undeniable musical genius? Many claim him to be such for when it comes to producing tracks, he has that magic touch. Yet he also has a blatant arrogance about him as well. As many have grown accustomed to ‘Ye’s antics, others in the music industry are still finding it hard to tolerate him. One person in particular who is having trouble doing it is his current manager Irving Azoff.
According to a source that is close to Azoff, the 65-year-old manager who has overseen the likes of other musical acts like Christina Aguilera and Jewel deems Kanye as being “unmanageable” due to his eccentric ways.
Eccentric? Oh no not Kanye. (Insert sarcasm)
The source went on to say that Azoff is now at a point where he is questioning whether or not to continue working with West:
“[Azoff] doesn’t know if he’ll be able to continue on with the relationship [with West],”
Kanye seems not to care much about Azoff’s disgust with him as he quoted his manager as being “nothing special”.
This industry relationship between West and Azoff was sparked by Kanye’s main squeeze Kim Kardashian’s mom Kris Jenner as Azoff had close ties with her late husband Attorney Robert Kardashian and she thought the two would be a match musically. As much as Jenner thinks Kanye West is perfect for her daughter, Azoff seems to think he is nothing more than a self-centered prima donna who he can’t get along with.
‘Ye must be too much of a diva for him to stomach.
