Kanye, Leibovitz issue joint statement on wedding

By From page B2 | June 20, 2014

NEW YORK — Kanye West and Annie Leibovitz have issued a joint statement clarifying comments the rapper made recently about the photographer.

The Thursday statement says West’s comments Tuesday at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival regarding Leibovitz’s availability to shoot his wedding “have been taken out of context and sensationalized.”

West was frustrated that he couldn’t secure Leibovitz’s services for his marriage to Kim Kardashian last month, the statement says, but he was not assigning blame. Their representatives had been negotiating, but did not reach an agreement by the time of the wedding.

The statement says West’s dream was to bring together his favorite creatives, and that Leibovitz was his first choice to capture “one of the most special days in Kim and Kanye’s life.”
