Annie Leibovitz and Kanye West Have Hugged it Out

annie leibovitz GYou can sleep easier tonight, everyone: Annie Leibovitz and Kanye West have cleared the air. West had ranted about Leibovitz because he was upset that Leibovitz cancelled plans to shoot his wedding, but according to statements from both parties, it was all a misunderstanding.

A rep for Leibovitz said:

Kanye West’s comments about Annie Leibovitz while speaking at the 2014 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival have been taken out of context and sensationalized. She would have loved to have taken their wedding portrait and was disappointed it didn’t happen.

A rep for West said:

Although Kanye expressed frustration that he was not able to collaborate with Annie Leibovitz at his recent wedding, he is not assigning blame, and is not accusing Annie in any way. Unbeknownst to Kanye, she was never confirmed. Kanye and Annie’s representatives were in negotiations for weeks that were not completed by the time of the wedding.

Breathe easy, America.
