Page Six has put on their detective cap and come up with a surprising conspiracy theory. Could it be, they ask, that Kanye West is behind the deletion of Amanda Lepore from the cover of Travis Scott’s latest album?
The scandal was ALMOST already forgotten, after both Scott and photographer David LaChapelle explained that it was simply the fact that Amanda’s fabulousness upstaged everyone and they felt they didn’t want to pull focus from the album’s star. Case closed right?
Not so fast.
Now the gossip column is claiming that “some see the hand of Kanye behind Lepore’s deletion.”
You’ll recall that in Lepore’s memoir, “Doll Parts,” she confesses to having sex with “an unnamed rapper” in the gym at a San Francisco hotel shortly before he married a woman with “a similar body type to me.”
Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, who is also suspected of surgical enhancements, has the same hourglass figure as Lepore.
“Everyone assumed Amanda was referring to Kanye,” said a source close to Lepore.
Scott has worked with Kanye, is dating Kim’s half-sister Kylie Jenner and is the father of Kylie’s baby, Stormi.
“Kanye is behind Amanda’s removal from the cover,” said my source. “These things are related.”
Dun dun DUN.
A spokesman for West had no comment, but an insider said, “Kanye had nothing to do with it.” Before Lepore’s book came out last year, “he didn’t even know who she was.”
A LIKELY STORY!
So, what do you think? Is this retaliation from the West clan for Lepore’s lurid blind item? Or is Page Six grasping at straws here? Only Kanye and Scott knows for sure.
