JAY-Z REPORTEDLY PUTS HANDS ON KANYE… ‘SLAPS’ HIM IN THE FACE!!” blares another supposed “World Exclusive” from MediaTakeOut, which claims Jay-Z and Kanye West got into a physical fight while recording their upcoming album “Watch The Throne.”

MediaFakeOut reports, “According to a person in the know, Jay Z and Kanye West are rumored to have been in some kind of a PHYSICAL ALTERCATION – with whispers that Jay may have ‘slapped’ Kanye.”

“There were some tense days [months ago] in the studio,” claims the alleged insider, who notes, “I heard Jay put hands on Kanye… a slap.”


“Rumored to have been in some kind of a physical altercation”?

“Jay may have ‘slapped’ Kanye”?

Doesn’t sound too definite — and it isn’t.

While the two men have not always seen eye-to-eye, Jay-Z did NOT slap Kanye back when they were recording “Watch the Throne.”

Once again, it’s MTO just talking smack.

A source close to Jay-Z laughed off the story, and said there was nothing to the slapping tale.
