It’s been about a month since Adidas cut business ties with Kanye “Ye” West over his anti-Semitic speech, which left the rapper on the verge of collapse as an entrepreneur.
Far from over, the 45-year-old musician is now being hit with serious allegations from various employees of the sports giant who previously worked for him.
In an astonishing investigation in the journal Rolling Stone, Former Yeezy and Yeezy employees alleged that West showed them explicit, intimate photos and videos of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian as an “intimidation tactic.”
Dozens of former employees anonymously shared that West had no qualms about showing intimate photos and videos of Kardashian, as well as his own homemade sex tapes, to Yeezy and Adidas employees.
According to rolling stonesDisturbingly, this was just one element of an inappropriate and “abusive” company culture described by 24 former employees.
Behind the scenes, this famous boss did more than test the boundaries of professionalism: former Yeezy and Adidas staffers and creative collaborators say he showed Yeezy staff pornography at meetings, discussed pornography, and showed an intimate photograph of himself. Kim Kardashian in job interviews, as well as an explicit video and photos of Kardashian.
A young creative designer has reportedly claimed that West showed him an explicit photo of the 42-year-old socialite during a job interview in 2018. Furthermore, at least one other former employee recalled that the rapper showed an explicit video of Kardashian, who requested the divorce from the musician in 2021, to the Yeezy creative team that same year.
The former employees also alleged to the American media that West constantly showed pornographic images and videos, including videos of him having sex during work meetings.
I think it was a tactic to bring a person down and establish his unwavering loyalty to her by testing and destroying people’s boundaries.
These incidents were also detailed in an open letter, which rolling stones obtained, titled “The Truth About Yeezy: A Call To Action For Adidas Leadership.”
In it, many high-ranking Yeezy officials criticized Adidas executives for turning off their “moral compass” and allegedly allowing Kanye West to create an “abusive” company culture.
So far, neither Kim Kardashian nor Kanye West have commented on the recent publication of rolling stones.
