Kanye West Once Called Sam Burgess A "Poor Person" On a Night Out With Russell Crowe

Plenty of people have been on the wrong end of some Kanye West savagery: Taylor Swift, Jimmy Kimmel, 50 Cent, Drake and... Sam Burgess?!

According to former NRL star Burgess, hip hop icon Kanye once called him a "poor person" during a nutty night out in London with South Sydney Rabbitohs boss Russell Crowe.

In an interview with Nova's Fitzy and Wippa, Crowe and Burgess revealed exactly what went down on the "weird" evening.

Burgess told the radio duo: "Honestly, it's pretty much what Russell said yesterday."

"It was a weird night. I'd driven from Bath over to the Dorchester (in London) for a session with Rusty.

"We were just sitting down having dinner. Obviously the drinks were flowing, as usual when me and Rusty are together. Kanye just walked in and sat down. I didn't think it was Kanye at the start because he was so small. I couldn't believe it and I didn't really care too much, but then I thought, 'that's pretty cool'.

"He brought his laptop in. He was showing everyone his new (Yeezy) range and he also called me 'poor' that night.

"He was showing me the new Yeezy stuff that he'd designed. He'd just been to Paris Fashion Week. Anyway, I'm going, 'That's cool. That's really cool'.

"And then he says, 'I'm making clothes for poor people just like you'.

"I thought, 'aww'. I was kind of chuffed that he'd called me poor. I was like, 'aww, that's cool'. So I was like, 'Yeah, I'm a peasant'. But you can come and eat food off my table, Kanye. That's fine.

"That's what he said. It was hilarious."
