From leaked tape of a conversation with Taylor Swift over his song 'Famous' to fights with Kim Kardashian during the lockdown, Fallout with long time BFF John Legend after a dispute over US President Donald Trump to joining the Black Lives Matter protest in Chicago after George Floyd's death at the hands of four policemen and more, Kanye West has constantly been in the buzz. 

As the rapper blows an extra candle on the cake today, let's see 5 controversies of Kanye West in 2020:

Leaked 2016 phone conversation with Taylor Swift

Kanye West's song Famous released in 2016 and became a chartbuster in no time. However, on one side the rapper became a sensation and on the other side, he upset Taylor Swift with his derogatory lyrics about the singer. The track released three years ago and marked the beginning of Taylor Swift and Kanye West's feud. The song makes a reference to Taylor Swift and a line says 'I made that b*tch famous' which did not go well with Taylor Swift and she revealed that she was unaware of the fact that Kanye's song will have a sentence that calls her a b*tch.

While Kanye West claimed that the lyrics had been approved by Taylor Swift herself, the singer insisted that Kanye never told her about the line and their 2016 phone call that leaked online further testified Taylor Swift's allegation and had the internet fuming where fans slammed Kanye West for misrepresenting Taylor without her consent and even lashed out at Kim Kardashian for supporting him.

Fights with Kim Kardashian during the lockdown

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been married for over 6 years now and the couple has recently been making the headlines for their rumoured arguments. Sources close to the couple have revealed that Kim and Kanye are having fights over parenting issues during the lockdown and both of them are getting on each other's nerves. "Kim and Kanye are arguing and at each other's throats during this pandemic," revealed a source. Another insider said that Kim and Kanye "are on different pages during the lockdown."

Fallout with long time BFF John Legend

In a new interview with The Sunday Times, Kanye West's longtime BFF John Legend revealed that he and the American rapper are ni longer close buddies. While many cited Kanye West’s vocal support for President Donald Trump as the reason behind the duo's split, John Legend cleared the air about the same and said that they have grown apart only because they are busy with their own lives and don't have much in common anymore. However, the fallout comes after Kanye West posted screenshots of his chat with John Legend where the latter warned him of supporting US President Donald Trump and its consequences.

Anonymous : Whatever, Kanye may have achieved a lot and may even be a good person deep deeeeeep down but what he and Kim did to Taylor was SHITTY AF and for that he will always remain a shitty person. Even tho Kim was mainly at fault, Kanye never stopped her and encouraged her instead and I hate him for it.

How bout you do the loving and respectful thing and highlight his achievements and wins over the past year? You must really hate yourself and that's sad. Get help. Peace.
