I can’t say I am surprised this has happened…
Kanya West aka ‘Ye’ has been in some hot water lately, so much in fact, brands have been dropping their partnerships with him.
Now, in case you haven’t heard, Kanye West recently went on an antisemitic rant about “the Jews.”
That rant, is now coming back to bite him in the butt — and it’s not just his social media accounts that have been suspended over his tirade.
The talent agency that represents him — CAA — has decided to cut ties with Ye.
Adidas also dropped their partnership with him effective immediately citing he doesn’t align with the company’s values.
And with all that heat and cancellation of Kanye, he now says he is broke.
According to Forbes, without all his partnerships, he is no longer a billionaire.
“Without Adidas, Ye is worth $400 million…The remainder of Ye’s fortune, Forbes estimates, comes from real estate, cash, his music catalog, and a 5 percent stake in ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s shapewear firm, Skims.”Forbes
And Kanye pretty much confirmed them when he posted on social media saying:
“I LOST 2 BILLION DOLLARS IN ONE DAY AND I’M STILL ALIVE THIS IS LOVE SPEECH I STILL LOVE YOU GOD STILL LOVES YOU THE MONEY IS NOT WHO I AM THE PEOPLE IS WHO I AM,” he ranted.
I have to say, it makes sense.
You can’t just go around calling people names, causing drama, and attacking people online without any repercussions.
Even Kanye’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian agrees.
After his very public attacks against her and her family, she finally made a statement saying:
Looks like Kanye’s mouth is finally starting to have some consequences.
I just feel bad for his kids having to watch all this unfold.
