OK, so they're together, but not like together together...
But -- and there's always a but -- the pair

Yesterday we reported how Kanye West stopped his concert in Sydney, Australia at the Qantas Credit Union Arena on Friday night because a couple of his fans weren't standing.
However those fans were actually handicapped, and when Kanye realized as such - he continued on with the show.
Although the reports of it made it sound like it all went down in basically the most insensitive manner ever!
And now a video has emerged from the show on YouTube and it really is unsettling to watch!
The video occurs right as Kanye stops the show and says he "can't do the rest of this show until everybody stands up."
When he notices one person isn't standing up, he calls that person out, and the crowd begins booing the unseen person.
But when Kanye asks if the person is in a wheelchair, the crowd then begins laughing, and still - Kanye has to make sure the person is actually in a wheelchair. That begins a torturous couple of minutes that is extremely hard to watch especially as Kanye comments how long he has to wait for the confirmation - which ignites another chorus of boos from the audience towards the fan.
And once Kanye does get the confirmation that the fan is in a wheelchair - the rapper just immediately starts the show again. No apology, no nothing.
Although we doubt Kanye had malicious intentions, we still believe it's inexcusable to be so insensitive, and we definitely think Kanye needs to address this incident VERY soon. Hopefully he reaches out to that fan, and he makes things right.
A little empathy on his part might've made it so this never happened.
