Kanye Omari West, the enigmatic rapper and fashion mogul who founded the high-end clothing brand Yeezy, had his company pay almost $1 million ($950,000 to be exact) to settle a lawsuit, alleging slow shipping to customers.
Yeezy accused of slow shipping
The lawsuit was brought about by district attorneys from Los Angeles, Alameda, Napa, and Sonoma; with the DAs alleging that the company falsely advertised their shipping and broke the state law by not shipping out online orders within a period of 30 days.
Neither Kanye nor his company has released a statement or comment addressing the lawsuit and the issues surrounding it.
Kanye is now known as Ye
The troubled rapper, businessman, and self-proclaimed artistic genius Kanye West had his name legally changed to Ye following approval by a judge who granted his request.
He was born Kanye Omari West and he legally changed his name to Ye on 24 August, with no middle or last name, citing personal reasons; after being approved by judge Michelle Williams Court.
Ye announced his name change back in 2018, announcing on Twitter that he was the “being formally known as Kanye West, I am Ye.”
In a 2018 radio interview, Ye (or Kanye as he was known back then) said that he believed “ye” is the most commonly used word in the Bible which means you, he added, “so I’m you, I’m us, it’s us.”
he explained that his name Kanye means “the only one”, and he changed it to Ye to be a reflection of “our good, our bad, our confused, our everything.”
Divorcing Kim Kardashian
Ye is also in the middle of a divorce from Kim Kardashian, and he was revealed to be dating Vinetria, a 22-year-old model.
The 44-year-old rapper and fashion mogul was attending their first public event together, debuting at Ye’s Donda Academy’s basketball game at Minneapolis where they were seen courtside enjoying the game together.
