Kanye West (also known as Ye) couldn’t stay out of the spotlight for too long. The rapper and entrepreneur is officially back on Twitter, and new sources are revealing details about alleged revenge porn involving his former wife, Kim Kardashian.
According to an exclusive published by Rolling Stone, West was involved in some major workplace bullying as reported by former employees of his fashion company, Yeezy. The article explores claims that West showed team members “explicit images of Kim Kardashian” and used “fear and manipulation to assert dominance” in the workplace.
The shocking behavior allegations come after athleticwear industry giant Adidas severed its contract with West, ceasing production of his designs and completely cutting him off financially, based on West’s continued anti-Semitic remarks and additional hate speech antics.
“Ye’s recent comments and actions have been unacceptable, hateful and dangerous, and they violate the company’s values of diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and fairness,” Adidas announced in an official statement back in October.
Several other brands have since cut ties as well, including Gap and Balenciaga, leaving the rapper a bit strapped for cash as he suddenly lost millions in just a few days.
According to Rolling Stone, former employees claimed West showed them “porn and explicit images of ex-wife Kim Kardashian” during the course of their employment, including during job interviews, as an “intimidation tactic.”
Those who worked under West, especially women, were exposed to inappropriate comments and actions that made them feel extremely uncomfortable, which were “frequently sexualized, and often directed toward women.”
Even more disturbing are details revealed in what Rolling Stone referred to as an “open letter by prominent former members of the Yeezy team” which alleges that executives at Adidas knew about these disgusting workplace issues but that nothing was done to prevent them or hold the abuser responsible.
Twitter has recently reactivated West’s account, which was banned back in October, and the problematic content has already begun.
“Shalom :)” he tweeted on November 20, 2022, with many criticizing his availability on Twitter after his scathing anti-Semitic behavior from the past year.
He is also claiming to once again run for president, tweeting that he had a visit to Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s Florida home, with a poll asking followers, “What you guys think his response was when I asked him to be my running mate in 2024?”
More allegations are sure to surface as the Rolling Stone story unfolds. If proven to be true, West’s career and personal life could crash harder than it already has this year.
