Kanye West scolds nail tech for hurting him during pedicure, abruptly stops service: ‘It’s MY toes’
In the clip, West, 46, could be seen sitting in a chair with one foot in a wash basin and the other up on the pedicurist’s lap.
“Ah! Whoa,” he said to the woman working on his feet as he flinched in apparent pain.
Though the woman tried to explain what she was doing and assure him that he was “OK,” West was not having it.
He pulled his foot back, stood up and said, “Nah, I’m not gonna do the rest of it. I gotta — I’m not gonna do it.”

The woman pointed to the tool she was using and explained, “No, it’s just the…” but West cut her off.
“Oh, no, I’m not gonna do it,” he barked back sternly. “It’s my toes. It’s my toes. It’s my toes! I’m not gonna do it. That hurt.”
The woman tried once again to show him the process, but he told her to “wrap it up” because he was “not gonna do it.”
“And the hands?” she asked, to which the musician fired back, “Nope! Thank you very much.”

An uncomfortable looking Ty, who was sitting on a nearby couch, stared blankly into the camera after witnessing the cringe-worthy moment.
West, however, didn’t seem to give it a second thought as he nonchalantly made his way over to his friend to continue an unrelated conversation, seemingly about music.
“Yeah, that part,” the “Paranoid” hitmaker responded in a deadpan manner.
Surely, the nail tech had her work cut out for her, as West spent the majority of his summer galavanting around the streets of Europe sans shoes.

Jason Lee — who spent a good chunk of 2022 working as the Grammy winner’s head of media and partnerships — previously told Page Six that he believed West was going barefoot to prove a point and stage a PR stunt.
“I think the fact that people are talking about Kanye’s feet shows just how much power he still has in the wake of cancel culture,” the “Hollywood Unlocked” host shared, calling it a “smart and strategic move.”
“I wouldn’t be surprised if the next time we saw shoes on his feet … would be a project that he designed.”
