Kanye West splits with JAY-Z's Tidal over $3M dispute

Kanye Diss, a Miss

Back in December, West called out Jay-Z and his wife, Beyoncé, during a concert before wrapping up his performance early.

KANYE West has reportedly cut ties with Jay Z's music streaming service Tidal after being owed more than $US3 million ($3.8 million).

After a fraught two weeks of lawyers trying to resolve the brewing conflict and failing, it's become quite the tricky situation.

According to a new TMZ report, the rapper has officially split from the streaming company owned by Jay-Z, having been unhappy with his positioning for months.

You could sense that he was willing to do whatever it took to get the victory. At 38, it was exactly the fight he didn't want. The bullying nearly drove Horn to suicide.

As for Tidal's side of the story, the company claims that Kanye is in breach of his contract because he owes them videos, but Kanye won't deliver them until he gets paid.

TMZ reported that this dispute has less to do about business but more about bruised egos.

We're told Kanye had no idea Jay would go after him on 4:44 and when he heard it he was "shocked". Producer No I.D. said Bey, 35, gave her approval. "Even at the risk of my own success, my own career". I've been sent here to give y'all the truth.

Back in November, Kanye publicly singled out JAY-Z during a live show.

"I went on iTunes looking for his album and I couldn't find it, and my homie sent it to me, you understand me?" he says, before praising his peer once again. "Please call me. Talk to me like a man".

However, Jay Z, the 47-year-old "retired" rapper who just dropped his 13th studio album "4:44", is threatening to sue his former friend if he takes his talents elsewhere. "Kanye was days away from going to a psych ward with some really serious mental issues" at the time, one source says.

Do you think that West's feud with the husband of Beyonce is enough for Kim Kardashian to worry about her husband's health?

I believe the Jazz have a team that will give him the best chance of winning, and they are close to becoming a serious contender. Rubio was a bad three-point shooter, and Jimmy Butler and Andrew Wiggins are midrange players who can get to the rim.
