It looks like more bad news is on the way for Kanye West, as the audio of his alleged meltdown on Saturday Night Live has made its way onto the internet.

In the clip, which was originally posted by the New York Post’s Page 6, Kanye can supposedly be heard yelling “Don’t f—k with me!” repeatedly after learning that part of the set for his performance had been removed without his knowledge.

He also branded Taylor Swift a “fake ass“ and called himself “50 per cent more influential” than Stanley Kubrick, Pablo Picasso, Paul the Apostle and Pablo Escobar.

“Bro! By 50 per cent, Stanley Kubrick, Apostle Paul, Picasso … f—king Picasso and Escobar. By 50 per cent more influential than any other human being,” he reportedly says.

“By 50 per cent dead or alive, by 50 per cent for the next 1,000 years.”

The audio is the latest in a series of bizarre events that have entangled Kanye in recent weeks. Previously, he claimed to be facing $53 million in debt and pleaded for Mark Zuckerberg to invest in his “ideas”, saying that he was “this generation’s Disney” and wanted to create “dope s—t”.

He also revived a long-running feud with Taylor Swift last week by naming her in his song ‘Famous’. The track features the line, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that b—h famous”.

Taylor made her own dig at Kanye at the Grammy Awards on Tuesday, alluding to the song during her acceptance speech for Album of the Year.

“There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame … But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you … you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there,” she said.
