Kim Kardashian is going to do her own investigation to learn more about the intimate photos and videos of her that her ex-husband, Kanye West, showed to Yeezy staff. On Friday (25), a person close to the star told Us Weekly how the businesswoman would handle the delicate situation.
“Kim is upset,” the source said. “She feels violated and terrified,” she added. The source explained that the “The Kardashians” star, who was married to West for six years before announcing their separation from her in February 2021, will try to “confirm” the allegations. “She wanted to see the photos the former employees had seen to get more details,” the contact said, noting that the scandal is “just another bombshell on Kanye.”
Meanwhile, the source concluded, the Skims founder’s family “keeps wondering what happens next” when it comes to the rapper. The former couple have four children: North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.
Since the report was published, Adidas has announced plans to open an investigation into allegations that the brand ignored allegations of misconduct towards West while he was one of its collaborators.
“It is currently unclear whether the allegations made in an anonymous letter are true,” the brand said in a statement to the same outlet. “However, we take these allegations very seriously and have made the decision to immediately open an independent investigation into this matter to address the allegations,” the company concluded.
The artist signed his first partnership with the sportswear brand in 2013 to bring his Yeezy line to the general public. But Adidas cut ties with the West in October this year after it made anti-Semitic comments on social media.
Kim also took issue with his ex-husband after the discriminatory speeches. “Hate speech is never acceptable or justified,” the star tweeted last month. “I stand with the Jewish community and call for an immediate end to the horrific violence and hate speech against them,” she wrote.
On Wednesday (23), a group of Yeezy employees sent a letter to the members of the Adidas board of directors. In the document obtained by Rolling Stone magazine, the employees demand that the company address the “toxic and chaotic environment that Kanye West has created” as well as the “unhealthy pattern of aggressive behavior toward women.”
In between episodes narrated by the staff, Kanye invited one of the staff members to visit his home. As they talked, the rapper would put sex videos on the screen. He showed me a video of Francesca Lee, a porn star, with a dildo having sex with another girl. It’s like, ‘What do you think of that?’ Looking at it on a broader level, I feel like it was a tactic to establish Unwavering Loyalty, testing and destroying people’s boundaries.”
On another occasion, while waiting for a team meeting, Kanye had posed for an intimate photo of his then-wife, Kim Kardashian. “It was very revealing and personal. I didn’t really react.” According to reports, at least more than once in 2018, West was able to show members of Yeezy’s creative team a candid video of the businesswoman.
The report also includes an episode in which West allegedly texted an employee about a semi-forgotten sneaker prototype in 2019. “We really need them because all I can think about is Kim’s butt and these shoes.” “. declared in the text. “We really pissed Adidas off for making and designing this,” this person said. The model, however, never made it to the market.
According to those involved, Adidas leaders were aware of Kanye’s behavior but “turned off his moral compass.” The team claims that they could have intervened in the troublesome situation long ago: “There was no accountability. Hard times, executives in the room, VP level or higher, and nothing done. You still have to show up for work on the day.” “the next”.
With the post, representatives for the brand released a statement, stating that they are offering support to employees. “Adidas does not tolerate hate speech or offensive behavior and has therefore ended its association with Adidas Yeezy. We have been and continue to be in an active conversation with our employees about the events that led to our decision to end the association. They have our full support, and as we work out the details of the termination, we have made it clear that we want to keep the talents and skills of our employees within the organization.” In October this year, Adidas broke the billionaire’s contract with the rapper.
