Is Yeezy's origin story a lie?

Kanye West announced himself to the world through his memorable 2003 hit ‘Through The Wire’. 

Yeezy literally rapped the song through the wire, as his jaw was wired shut because of a tragic car crash in 2002. 

However some fans have now began speculating that Kanye West may have sustained his injuries in another way. 

Two tweets set off conspiracy theories on social media last night:

There have also been a number of tweets that vaguely reference Kanye allegedly getting beaten up and having his music stolen at the same time as the accident. 

While there is no concrete evidence to back up the claims, Twitter couldn’t handle the surprising revelation.

Spin Mag have since found an official court document to disprove the theory - showing Kanye West as a defendant in a law suit filed by the other victim of the crash, Miguel Villasana.

Kanye West has yet to respond the rumours.
