Kanye West denies claims of being kicked out of Super Bowl

Kanye West makes a point as he holds his first rally in support of his presidential bid in North Charleston

In a recent episode of his 'Paper Route' podcast, former NFL player Brandon Marshall made a wild claim that Kanye West was kicked out of the Super Bowl for allegedly buying tickets in front of Taylor Swift's booth. However, West's representative quickly debunked these claims, calling them a 'completely fabricated rumor.'

Marshall, who shared a VIP suite with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell during the game, provided no evidence to support his allegation and even mistakenly mentioned Katy Perry instead of Taylor Swift. He claimed that West had strategically positioned himself in front of Perry's booth, wearing a mask with his logo, to gain visibility whenever the cameras focused on her. According to Marshall, Swift got angry and made some calls, resulting in West's expulsion from the stadium.

However, this claim was quickly proven false when images emerged of West and his wife, Bianca Censori, attending the game. These images showed West standing next to a security guard, nowhere near Swift's star-studded suite, which appeared to be filled only with enthusiastic fans.

Sources also revealed exclusively to Page Six that West received a lukewarm welcome when he entered the Raising Cane's suite, where even his one-time friend Leonardo DiCaprio completely ignored him. It seems there was no interaction between the two at all.

This incident adds fuel to the long-standing feud between West and Swift, which began with his infamous interruption of her at the 2009 VMAs. The feud reached its peak in 2016 when West name-dropped Swift in his song 'Famous.' Swift argued that she never gave West permission to include the lyric, prompting his then-wife Kim Kardashian to release audio that supposedly proved otherwise.

As for West's attire at the Super Bowl, he sported a religious-themed head covering on top of a full mask. The vintage Alexander McQueen mask featured a three-dimensional white crucifix between the eyes, serving as a tribute to the late fashion designer who died on the same day 14 years earlier.

While Brandon Marshall's claims about Kanye West's Super Bowl expulsion caused a stir, it's important to differentiate fact from fiction. West's representative has categorically denied these rumors, and photographic evidence proves that West and his wife attended the game without any trouble. Feuds and controversies often find their way into the spotlight, but it's crucial to critically examine the evidence before accepting any claims as true.
