All the photos you need to see from the 2015 MTV VMA Awards - featuring Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, Rita Ora and more.
Yeezy made the comments during his acceptance speech for the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs.
The R&B singer missed out on the Album Of The Year award that year, with Dixie Chicks winning for their LP ‘Taking The Long Way’.
Kanye West said: “I sat at the Grammys and saw Justin Timberlake and Cee Lo lose; Gnarls Barkley and the 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' album.
“I ain’t trying to put you on blast, but I saw that man in tears. He deserved to win Album Of The Year.”
Responding to Kanye’s comments via Twitter, Timberlake initially appeared to shrug off the claim, writing: “Kanye is so cute, y’all.”
