He said she was afraid of celebrity...
TMZ reports that Annie Leibovitz has sent a statement out commenting on the remarks Kanye West made when she failed to take the photos at his wedding to Kim Kardashian. He said that she dropped out because she was "afraid of celebrity", even though she shoots celebrities all the time.
Her response, however, never actually mentions the "afraid of celebrity" comment, and even features another comment from West.
Her representative said West was frustrated he couldn't "collaborate with Annie" but doesn't blame her for it. The rep said: "Unbeknownst to Kanye, she was never confirmed. She would have loved to have taken their wedding portrait and was disappointed it didn't happen."
Leibovitz did shoot their Vogue cover but isn't "known to shoot weddings".
West, meanwhile, added: "The most-liked Instagram photo of all time, shot by Annie Leibovitz. Oh, I'm sorry for dreaming out loud. Again."
