Kanye West goes after Jay-Z’s wife Beyonce over theft?

Kanye West has found success by working hard and collaborating with the right people. However, Kim Kardashian has gained fame by being on a reality show and being famous for nothing in particular. And Kanye wants his relationship to be as popular as his friend Jay-Z. He is married to Beyonce, and both of them have worked hard to get to where they are. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Jan. 14, Kanye West is now accusing his best friend’s wife of stealing from him.

Apparently, Kanye is upset that Beyonce is getting so much attention and success with her new album, because he thinks that he may have had the idea before her. “Kanye is feeling really defeated over Beyonce’s album doing so well,” says a source close to the rapper. “He wanted to do a visual album for his [My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy] album, but everyone around him convinced him it wouldn’t work. That’s why he ended up doing one long movie to go with it [the 35-minute short film, 'Runaway'].”

One could argue that Kanye’s credibility has taken a hit after he started dating Kim, because many see her as being desperate for attention and the spotlight. Beyonce and Jay-Z are often private people, so it seems like an odd thing to criticize. “He’s kind of annoyed, but he doesn’t want to talk about how he came up with the idea first because of how he got slammed for saying he invented leather jogging pants a few years ago. Plus, he needs to stay on good terms with Jay Z,” a source adds.

Do you think Beyonce stole his idea? Or do you think this accusation is a PR stunt?
