According to a recent story, Kanye West has been charged for intimidating Adidas employees by allegedly showing them graphic images of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
Ye, a rapper and producer who is 43 years old, lost a design deal with the sportswear company last month due to antisemitic remarks. In a Tuesday Rolling Stone piece, he was charged with displaying the pictures.
One worker alleged that Ye exposed a graphic image of the 41-year-old Kardashian during a job interview in 2018.
Ye allegedly said, “My wife just sent me this,” after displaying a “very intimate and personal” photo on his phone.
Some of the claims were contained in an open letter that Rolling Stone was sent, headlined The Truth About Yeezy: A Call to Action for Adidas Leadership. Employees blasted Adidas officials in the letter for supposedly turning off their “moral compass.”
In response to “the poisonous and chaotic environment that Kanye West created” and “a very sick pattern of predacious behavior toward women,” the letter urged Adidas board members and top executives to take action.
He has in the past verbally burst at women in the room and used sexually suggestive language when giving design comments, the letter stated. Adidas staff members should never be subjected to this kind of attitude from a brand partner, and Adidas leadership should never put up with it.
