Kanye West’s Twitter antics are always amusing but this time he is calling on the help of his followers to discover who a person called Lauren Greenfield is. Kanye came across her name on his payroll and labelled her a ‘fake employee’ after not identifying with the name.

Only a couple of days ago had Kanye West made headlines for missing a filing deadline resulting in him not being eligible to qualify to be on the presidential ballot in battleground Wisconsin.

Kanye West is known for his Twitter rants and the latest tweet to leave followers scratching their heads is him trying to get to the bottom of the random name on his payroll.

Who is Lauren Greenfield?

  • Someone called Lauren Greenfield is listed on Kanye’s payroll as a ‘Music Consultant’ and Kanye has no recollection of employing her. Kanye took to Twitter to ask if anyone knew of the name before calling her a ‘fake employee’ on Twitter. 

There is someone called Lauren Greenfield who is a famous photographer and filmmaker who has been published in Vanity Fair and the New York Times. Although she doesn’t seem to be the ‘Music Consultant’ Kanye is looking for, Lauren has previously photographed Kanye’s wife at a ‘fancy Los Angeles school dance’. According to the New York Times, Kim Kardashian-West was pictured by Lauren Greenfield in 1992.

As of yet, no one called Lauren Greenfield has notably come forward declaring that she works for Kanye West or confirmed that there has been a mistake. However many Twitter users have gone on a mission to find the ‘fake employee’.

Kanye’s tweet shows an apparent screenshot of someone’s social media profile, with no profile photo along with the name “Lauren Greenfield, Music Consultant” attached. Kanye followed the picture with the caption: “Has anyone ever heard of this person ? I just found a fake employee on my payroll!!!”

Chrissy Teigen was quick to respond with a hilarious GIF of her and John Legend at an awards ceremony where she can be seen cowering whilst laughing.
