After his heartfelt public apology on The Jay Leno Show last night, Kanye West has finally personally reached out to pop singer Taylor Swift.
According to the Associated Press, Kanye called the teen country star after her appearance on The View. During the show, which aired live this morning, Swift said she had yet to hear from Ye first hand, despite all of his three public apologies.
Representatives for The View told the AP that Ye called Swift immediately following her appearance on the episode. “After the show he spoke personally to the country music superstar via telephone and has apologized to the 19-year-old singer,” a statement from The View read. “She has accepted Mr. West’s apology. The contents of the phone call are to remain private.”
As previously reported Ye interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech during last Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards (September 13), to declare Beyonce the real winner. He was later asked to leave the ceremony.
During his public apology on Jay Leno last night, Kanye said “I immediately knew in this situation that it was wrong, it wasn’t a spectacle, it was someone’s emotion I stepped on and it was rude period.” –Elan Mancini
