“‘Girl’ Fight! Kanye West Confronts Anna Wintour Over Putting Lena Dunham On ‘Vogue’ Cover Instead Of Fiancée Kim Kardashian,” reads the headline of a new RadarOnline story.

According to the webloid, during a recent “power lunch at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge,” West “demanded” that Vogue’s editor-In-chief explain why she felt Dunham was “cover worthy for the famed fashion bible,” while Kardashian was “overlooked.”

A so-called “source” for the site says West insisted to Wintour that Kardashian is “just as talented as Lena, if not more so,” and noted that the reality star “has a much bigger fan base and appeal than Lena.”

The alleged “source” is further quoted as saying, “To Kanye, it’s insulting that his friend Anna is still refusing to even consider putting Kim on the cover of Vogue… He’s upset that Anna isn’t willing to do him this personal favor and put Kim on the cover.” “Kanye knows that it’s always been a huge dream of Kim’s to be on the Vogue cover and Kanye wants to make it comes true,” adds the webloid’s source.

RadarOnline’s story is very dramatic, very compelling, but most importantly, it’s also very “untrue,” a Vogue insider assures Gossip Cop. There was NEVER any confrontation. The site’s track record with West isn’t exactly stellar. Radaronline recently reported that he pays $250,000 to a “glam squad” to be on call 24/7 to make Kardashian photo shoot ready.
