Bassey (pictured) told the Daily Mail: "He didn't ask my permission to have me singing on his song. I didn't even know it existed until I heard him performing at the Live 8 concert. I didn't even hear from his record company, which wasn't very nice. One way or another, he is going to have to pay me a lot of money."
West, who is at number five in the album charts with Late Registration, is no doubt shitting his (really, really expensive) pants.
