Kanye's wife and North's mum Kim Kardashian made the revelation while appearing on Kocktails with Khloe, explaining that the rapper's early brainstorming ideas and lyrics couldn't be retrieved.
"Kanye had every single rap in his iPhone before he started really working on Pablo and then North flushed it down the toilet," said Kim. "They could not be retrieved. We sent it to, like, four places."
Kanye quipped: "No Apple genius is genius enough!"
Kim added: "And he didn't even get mad. I would have at least screamed, cried."
Well thankfully, it didn't affect Kanye too much. The Life of Pablo, which was released exclusively on Tidal, was streamed more than 250 million times within 10 days of release.
