Kanye West’s fashion show on Thursday started with a fracas with security guards at 5 in the morning according to a report in the New York Daily News.
The “Yeezus” rapper reportedly spent Wednesday night partying until sunrise and was then seen wandering confused through the hallways of the Waldorf Astoria, where he and his family were staying.
“It’s safe to say he was disoriented,” says a source close to the situation. “When he got off the elevator, he went the wrong direction and two security guards stopped him and asked `where are you going?’”
West turned combative and insisted he knew where he was going.
But the guards, who were reportedly protecting a European dignitary sleeping on the floor, insisted to the “Jesus Walks” singer that was heading to the wrong room.
“He starts yelling, ‘I’m Kanye West’ and, ‘Kim Kardashian is staying here,’ but the guards didn’t seem to know what he was talking about,” according to the report.
As West began to raise his voice, other guests started peeking out from their rooms and at least one other man — thought to be a hotel guest — tried to rectify the situation.
“Then it got loud,” our snitch said. “They finally turned him around and pointed him to the other end of the hall toward the other suites (where he was staying).”
