In the latest twist of the ongoing saga between Kanye West and Taylor Swift, the rapper has responded to allegations suggesting he was ousted from the Super Bowl stadium at the behest of the pop star.

Contrary to the old adage "old habits die hard," it seems that the feud between West and Swift refuses to fade into history, as fresh drama unfolded during Sunday's Super Bowl, reigniting tensions between the two icons.

Amid the star-studded affair, which saw Swift gracing the event alongside her beau, Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce, rumors swirled that West had strategically positioned himself in seats directly in front of Swift's booth, setting the stage for a potentially awkward encounter.

The pair’s history is fraught with tension, stemming from West's infamous stage-crashing incident at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, where he infamously interrupted Swift's acceptance speech.

The rift deepened in 2016 with the release of West's track 'Famous,' containing derogatory lyrics about Swift, leading to a public feud.

Former NFL player Brandon Marshall added fuel to the fire, claiming on The Paper Route podcast that West's seating arrangement was a deliberate attempt to upstage Swift. 

According to Marshall, Swift swiftly intervened upon learning of West's alleged plan, resulting in his purported removal from the stadium.

He claims the rapper wanted to upstage her as anytime they’d show the billionaire megastar on the cameras, “Kanye’s face was going to be there”. But Marshall alleges that when Swift learned about the rapper’s plan, she decided to foil it. “He’s got a mask on with his logo on the mask - typical Kanye. Taylor Swift gets p**sed off, she boom boom makes a call or two,” the former NFL player claims. “Everybody’s involved. He gets kicked out the stadium.”

However, West's representatives have refuted these claims, labeling them as "completely fabricated rumors" in a statement to TMZ.

Despite the swirling controversy, West made his presence felt at the Super Bowl in Vegas, sporting his signature black mask adorned with a white crucifix.

In addition to the stadium commotion, West's presence at the Super Bowl alongside his wife, Bianca Censori, raised eyebrows. The rapper was spotted donning a distinctive full-face covering with a white crucifix, while Censori sported an uncharacteristically covered-up ensemble.

The pair's attendance at the event comes amid a turbulent period in West's public life, including his highly publicized divorce from ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

As the drama unfolds, it remains unclear whether the alleged seating debacle was a calculated move or simply a case of miscommunication.
