Kanye West’s fallout continues, this time with Quentin Tarantino denying a claim of sexual assault.
Just a day after Kanye West’s longtime record label G.O.O.D. Music claimed he was sexually assaulted by a “member of staff”, director Quentin Tarantino has denied the claims, saying while they were “false” the label was “livid” about the incident and decided to “exonerate” West.

“He has brought us the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Drake, T.I., G-Eazy, Kid Cudi and I’m glad he’s here. We just had a tremendous night and I feel, just the
