LONDON – Kanye West is not eating any $3,900 curry, his management said Tuesday.
The British Raj restaurant had said that a music promotion company was paying that princely sum, plus travel and accommodation for the restaurant's head chef, to send a fully cooked Indian meal from Wales to New York for a meeting with West and seven guests.
But the music star's publicist said West wasn't planning to be in New York during the week, and that the food wasn't for him.
"There is no meeting in New York. There never has been," spokesman Gabe Tesoriero said Tuesday. He called the story "patently false."
The restaurant confirmed Tuesday that the food was en route to New York by plane. It said the bill was being footed by a promotion company called Raw Soul. Several phone messages left for Raw Soul were not returned.
Only one thing seemed certain: someone in New York was going to eat well this week.
