Ronald Fenty travelled with Rihanna and West during their joint tour in 2010
The pop star’s dad Ronald Fenty – who travelled with Rihanna and West during their joint tour in 2010 – recently made the claim to Heat magazine.
Fenty is quoted as saying: “It’s crazy – he pays his barber $500 (£327) a time. I don’t understand how that much hair gets taken off.”
“Kanye just loves the fresh look,” he added.
Heat also spoke to Ibn Jasper, allegedly West’s personal barber, having first met West in Chicago 20 years ago.
“He asked me to move to New York City and I told him, ‘When you can pay me what I make in my shop, I’ll move’,” Ibn claimed.
West’s seventh studio album ‘SWISH’ is expected “very soon”, according to fellow rapper Travis Scott.
West first announced the album in March of this year, originally referring to it as ‘So Help Me God’. It was renamed ‘SWISH’ in May.
Speaking on Beats 1 last month (October 30) Scott said: “That Ye album is nothing to sleep on. That Ye album is coming very soon. It’s lit.”
Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher recently hit out at modern rock and pop acts, saying that fame is wasted on everyone bar Kanye West.
