Do You Really Think Kanye West Didn't Have A Cell Phone Before 2011?


"Kocktails with Khloé" is ending this week after a single season that featured mostly D-list guests.

But the series clearly saved the best for last, as Wednesday's episode will feature your favorite #relationshipgoals couple, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, as well as Khloé's sister, Kim Kardashian, and, yes, Kanye West.  

In a promo clip for the finale, Khloé mentions that West "used to never have a phone," and West claims didn't get a phone until "somebody decided they wanted to marry Kris Humphries."

That's as far back as 2011, which means he was, uh, borrowing someone else's phone in all these photo's taken way before 2011? 

Here's Kanye on his phone in 2009.

There are, however, actually plenty of reports of West's aversion to technology. And it's something he seems to bring up again and again. Rapper and Khloé ex French Montana offered up his thoughts on the matter to Vibe in 2012, saying he "always thought it was brilliant for Kanye not to have a phone." 

He added, "I mean feel like at times I don’t want no phone, either. If you are at a certain level like Kanye is at, most of the people who are calling your phone, are people who are going to ask you for something, negative energy.”

So maybe he was just borrowing someone's phone. In conclusion, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
