UPDATED 2/14, 11 p.m. ET: In a long Instagram caption on Wednesday night, Kanye addressed Swifties campaigning to get Beyoncé's new song "Texas Hold 'Em" to top any potential Billboard Hot 100 entries from his Ty Dolla Sign collab album Vultures 1. We've got all the details in this post—along with lines like "I’m sure I’ve been far more helpful to Taylor Swift’s career than harmful"—but there's a specific Super Bowl-related section to point out here.

"Also I didn’t get kicked out of the Super Bowl we left our seats to go to YG’s box and see different friends," West wrote in all-caps. "My wife had never been to a Super Bowl so I wanted to walk around and have a nice time we had such a fun day."

And there you have it.

UPDATED 2/14, 7:15 a.m. ET: A rep for the artist formerly known as Kanye West has addressed Brandon Marshall’s already-called-out-as-unlikely claim of Taylor Swift initiating a Super Bowl LVIII ousting of the Vultures 1 artist.

In a statement shared with TMZ, a Ye rep slammed Marshall’s comments as “a completely fabricated rumor.” The rep didn’t stop there, adding, “it is not true.”

See original story below.

Brandon Marshall is claiming that Taylor Swift made “a call or two” during Super Bowl LVIII, to get Kanye West removed from Allegiant Stadium.

The alleged ousting was mentioned by the ex-NFL star during a recent appearance on I Am Athlete’s Paper Route podcast. However, the former Denver Broncos player initially cited Katy Perry in his story, a mistake that seems worth underlining.

“Kanye West buys a ticket right in front of Katy Perry’s booth,” he claimed. “So any time they were going to be showing Katy Perry, Kanye’s face was going to be there.”

When asked to clarify if he meant Taylor Swift, not Katy Perry, Marshall corrected himself.

“My bad, in front of Taylor Swift’s booth,” he said. “He had a mask on with his logo on the mask, right?

The mask Ye wore to the game did not actually feature Ye’s “logo” but was instead an apparent recreation of an Alexander McQueen piece.

“Typical Kanye,” Marshall added. “Taylor Swift gets pissed off. She, boom-boom, makes a call or two. Everybody’s involved. He gets kicked out the stadium.”

Of course, there’s not currently a way to prove any such claims, though it’s worth noting that Ye was seen in attendance at the game seemingly as late as the third quarter. Thus, if Marshall's claims were indeed somehow proven to be true, it would mean that any alleged kickout didn’t happen until pretty far along into the festivities, which seems unlikely. It's also worth noting that that no one else allegedly involved has mentioned this transpiring, including Ye himself.

In fact, Ye mentioned Swift during his conversation with LAX paparazzi following the game, yet made no mention of any purported kickout.
