Kanye West is supposedly feeling bad over the success of Beyonce's surprise album because he believes that she stole the visual album idea from him.

A source close to the rapper told Radar Online that West wanted to do a visual album for his 'Dark Twisted Fantasies' album, but everyone around him convinced him it wouldn't work, so he ended up doing one 35-minute short film, 'Runaway,' to go with it.

Although West's a bit annoyed with the 'Halo' hit maker, he doesn't want to talk about how he came up with the idea first because he needs to stay on good terms with Jay Z, the source added.

It is also worth noting that till now Beyonce's album has sold almost 1.5 million copies and West's 'Yeezus' has sold less than a million copies.
