Kanye West is allegedly hitting back at the outspoken Wendy Williams.
According to a new report by the Daily Mail, West is taking serious aim at Williams with a new “diss track,” which the site is alleging is a revamped cover of Aerosmith’s “Dude (Looks Like a Lady).”
A source supposedly told the site that Kanye even suggested that Williams was transgender in the alleged track, which the Daily Mail is reporting West recorded while spending time in the studio in Los Angeles last weekend.
Supposedly, West’s recently revamped lyrics to the 1987 Aerosmith hit, which the insider claimed is “really on the level of Nas’s ‘Ether’ diss record to Jay-Z,” consisted of the following lyrics.
“You obsessed with me / Keep testing me / You may be wearing dresses, but you a man like me / Got bigger hands than me / Let me see, your birther please / A dude in a wig that really wanna be me!”
But while the Daily Mail is reporting that West went all out on the song aimed at Wendy Williams, it’s thought that Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, managed to talk him out of making the track public for fear that he would be labelled “transphobic.”
“Kim was concerned that Caitlyn [Jenner] would be offended by the record,” a source told the Daily Mail of Kardashian’s attempts to prevent the record from seeing the light of day, adding that “everyone was going crazy” when Kanye played the song in the studio.
But while Kanye West has neither confirmed nor denied the authenticity of the report, the alleged “diss track” comes just days after Wendy very publicly slammed both West and Kardashian following Kanye’s now-infamous Twitter war with fellow rapper Wiz Khalifa.
Speaking out about the social media drama on her daytime talks show The Wendy Williams Show on January 29, Williams took serious aim at both Kanye and Kim after West made distasteful remarks about Khalifa, his ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, and their son, Sebastian, on his official Twitter page.
“The idea that [West is] talking about Amber being a stripper, you’re not saying anything that she hasn’t admitted herself,” Wendy said of West’s remarks, before making reference to Kanye’s former two year relationship with the model. “As a matter of fact, Kanye, you’re the one who gave this stripper her come up,” Williams snapped.
Wendy then went on to discuss Kim Kardashian’s now-infamous 2003 sex tape with her then boyfriend Ray J, controversially telling Kanye West on The Wendy Williams Show, “by the way, we recall meeting your wife on her back.”
Williams then continued to slam both Kanye and Kim on the talk show, stating in part that she thinks the couple’s marriage is nothing but a sham before revealing that she was refusing to add “West” on to the end of Kardashian’s name.
“I’m not going to say anything about Kanye and what people want to do behind closed doors is their business, but I am embarrassed for Kim Kardashian,” Wendy continued of the couple, who have two children together, before adding that their relationship is “not a real marriage.”
“Anytime your man is out there fighting with another man and bringing up his ex. Like, why is Kanye still talking about Amber?” Wendy told her studio audience, who she refers to as her “co-hosts.” “What kind of respect, or lack thereof, does Kanye have for his new son Saint? And his daughter?” Wendy said of Kim and Kanye’s children, Saint and North, “And why are you talking like that? So I’m embarrassed for Kim.”
Do you think Kanye West really recorded a “diss track” aimed at Wendy Williams?
