Kanye West apparently intended to upstage Taylor Swift at the Super Bowl — but the pop superstar torpedoed his plan — at least, that’s what one former NFL star is claiming.
Brandon Marshall — who played in the league from 2006-2018 for a number of teams — made the shocking allegation on his “Paper Route” podcast this week … explaining that he’d heard Ye purposely purchased seats right in front of Tay Tay’s suite for the Big Game.
According to this purported tea … the idea, it seems, was an attempt to photobomb all her inevitable TV appearances. On its face, it comes across as a good old-fashioned spite effort.
However, the ex-All-Pro receiver explained the alleged scheme never came to fruition … as Swift made “a call or two” to have Ye kicked out of Allegiant Stadium entirely — that’s what Brandon’s claiming anyway.
Take it all with a grain of salt, but considering how polarizing Ye has been recently — and Swift being the non-athlete face of the SB champs this season — it doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility the league may have nudged KW to somewhere a little more low-key.
It’s also hard to say with any certainty whether she actually got him fully kicked out or not , as Brandon suggests here … especially if he bought a ticket lawfully and by the book.
In any case … BM sounds 100% confident that he’s breaking news with the world here.
Also worth noting — TMZspoke with Ye for several minutes on Monday … and he only mentioned Swift in a pretty lukewarm manner.
You’d think Ye would pounce at the opportunity to trash Travis Kelce‘s girlfriend if it really went down as Marshall claims … but perhaps he got some details fudged up (after all, he did initially confuse Swift with Katy Perry, FWIW).
Either way … Ye and his wife, Bianca Censori, were definitely at the venue … with the former rocking a face covering featuring a white crucifix. There are photos of Kanye in the building — and in the one pic that’s going around, he does appear to be next to a stadium worker.
We’ve made some calls to try and clear the air … so far, no word back.
