Balenciaga Cuts Ties w/ Kanye West

Media Take Out Staff |

Kanye West has lost another bag after his anti-semitic rant. This time Balenciaga says they are no longer doing business with the billionaire rapper.

Kering, Balenciaga’s parent company, said they would no longer be working on projects with Ye.

“Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist,” Kering said to WWD.

Ye has already ended his relationship with GAP. “It was always a dream of mine to be at the Gap and bring the best product possible to the masses,” he told CNBC. “Sometimes I would talk to the guys, the leaders, and it would be like I was on mute or something.”

“We wanted to address the headlines of today and the past several weeks related to Yeezy Gap. Simply put…while we share a vision of bringing high-quality, trend-forward, utilitarian design to all people through unique omni experiences with Yeezy Gap, how we work together to deliver this vision is not aligned. And we are deciding to wind down the partnership,” Mark Breitbard, president and CEO of Gap Brand wrote to CNN.

Ye may soon lose his partnership with Adidas. The company says they are reviewing their relationship with him.
