When Kanye West gave a lecture at Oxford University on March 2nd, he said his voice gives him access to the most powerful people in the world, including multibillionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk and President Barack Obama. Not only can he call the President "out of the blue," but Obama, apparently, "calls the home phone, by the way."

When the president guested on Jimmy Kimmel Live last Thursday night (March 12), Obama seemed to laugh off Kanye's remarks, saying, though he loves Kanye's music, "I don't think I've got his home number."

Yesterday, the paparazzi greeted Kanye at LAX, and though Kanye is resisting anyone's attempts to pit him and the president against each other, he's sticking to his guns. Kanye says, "I love Obama. He called our house before. He knows that." 

Has Barack Obama been ringing up the Yeezus estate? Luckily, there's a clear mutual respect between the two--though someone is lying here.

Watch Kanye field questions from the paparazzi below.
