Kanye West lost early 'Life Of Pablo' lyrics after daughter flushed his phone down the toilet

Rapper 'didn't even get mad', says wife Kim Kardashian

Getty Luke Morgan Britton, 19th April 2016 Kanye West had to rewrite the lyrics for his latest album 'The Life Of Pablo' after his daughter North flushed his phone, which contained early drafts for songs, down the toilet.
The revelation comes during the latest episode of Khloé Kardashian's talk show, Kocktails with Khloé. A preview of the new episode, which airs Wednesday (April 20) on US cable network FYI, can be seen below.
"Kanye had every single rap in his iPhone before he started really working on 'Pablo' and then North flushed it down the toilet and they could not be retrieved," Kim Kardashian says in the clip.
The pair sent the phone "to like four places" but it couldn't be fixed. "And no Apple Genius was genius enough," West adds.
Kim Kardashian continues: "He didn't even get mad, I would have at least like screamed."

PREVIEW: Kanye, Kim, John and Chrissy on #KocktailsWithKhloe which airs this Wednesday.

West's 'The Life of Pablo' was originally released via Tidal in February before becoming available on all major non-Tidal streaming services on March 31, landing at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
It has been reported this week that both West and Tidal are being sued after it was claimed they "deceived" fans into signing up to Tidal for the exclusive.
