Rapper Kayne West now known as Ye has been grabbing the headlines for some controversial reasons recently. This is largely due to him wearing a ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt during his Yeezy fashion show. Ye recently made an appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored and revealed that he talked to Donald Trump a few days ago after he was de-platformed.
Donald Trump responds
Ye revealed what Trump told him. Trump stated how he could relate, “I had 277 million followers, and the next day I had nothing.”
Ye recently attended daughter North West’s basketball game at Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, Calif., on Friday night, and spoke with press after about his partnerships with Adidas and Balenciaga. His comments came the same day that Balenciaga announced it was dropping him.
“I ain’t lose no money. They never paid me nothing,” the rapper said regarding Balenciaga in video footage shared by Hollywood Fix on YouTube. “The day when I was taken off the Balenciaga site, that was one of the most freeing days. We’re about making product that’s $20, the best design in the world, and that’s the reason why we had brought the head designer from Balenciaga, Demna, who’s a great designer. That’s why I brought him to the Gap in the first place, but they didn’t allow that to happen. And that’s why I had to get up out of those big corporations, so I could give directly to the people.”
As for Adidas, Kanye West remained vague on the future of the partnership — though legal discussions are apparently underway.
