Trust Kanye West to know how to grab eyeballs – even if it might seem absurd to some. He has been in the news throughout this year. From his erratic behavior at what was the beginning of the rapper's presidential campaign to getting kicked off from Arizona and Virginia ballots by a judge, Kanye has sparked a lot of controversies.

West's latest antic involves another tweet. The rapper tweeted something which appears to be a screenshot of someone’s profile – without a photo, with "Lauran Greenfield, Music Consultant" written. And he wrote: “Has anyone ever heard of this person ? I just found a fake employee on my payroll!!!” While it is not clear how and from where he got the name or whether actually a person of that name exists.



 

 

Just like every social media post by the singer, this one also got a lot of reactions. One user said, "I havent heard of Lauren greenfield but I have heard of a singer named Taylor Swift that outsold you." Some people googled the name and posted their findings, "So apparently there’s a famous photographer with that name. And Kendall has (or had) a photo by LG in her house. That wouldn’t explain the “music consultant” tag but that might be more of a data entry issue?" One joked, "Yeah that’s me but keep the cash coming please xoxo." One speculated, "Maybe she was real until July 24th, but when the album didn’t drop she vanished because a music consultant was no longer needed." One had a piece of advice, "Dear Ye, My best advice is to stay low It's hard to decipher all of the bills Especially when you got fake employees on payroll."



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

One user mocked him by taking a screenshot of his tweet with the comment, "Has anyone heard of this person? i think taylor made him famous." Another tweeted, "This is straight up Hilarious I’m sitting here in my chair holllerinh Kanye manages to make iconic tweets on the spot." A user quipped, "Looks like a case for Lauren order if you want me on your payroll as a puns consultant I’m in." One user tried his luck and said, "I will take her position, move to SD and actually work my but off do whatever you need. Oh and for less money. @kanyewest. I don't care about fame or money. I just want to do something I love. People are gonna laugh at this, but it never hurts to just ask."



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

When we did our own search, the first result led us to a photographer named Lauren Greenfield. According to W magazine, in 1992, she had clicked a 12-year-old Kim Kardashian. Over the years she has photographed many celebrities, and her 25 years of documentation resulted in a book and an exhibition at the Annenberg Space for Photography called 'Generation Wealth'. Her twitter bio reads as: DIRECTOR-The Kingmaker, Generation Wealth, Queen of Versailles, Thin. AUTHOR-Fast Forward, Girl Culture, Thin, Generation Wealth. FOUNDER-Girl Culture Films. Though it is unconfirmed and MEA WorldWide cannot verify who West was referring to in his tweet.

The 'Stronger' rapper recently managed to raise eyebrows with his attention-grabbing entrance to the Sunday Service on September 6. The service took place in his native Atlanta and West can be seen "walking" on the water alongside his seven-year-old daughter North and four-year-old son Saint. His wife, Kim Kardashian, posted a series of Instagram stories about the event. According to Daily Mail, West and his kids were walking on a translucent platform hidden beneath the surface of the pond. They were seen walking towards the gathered group of a cappella singers. Lakewood Church senior pastor Joel Osteen was present to deliver a sermon.
