Is Kanye about to be plunged into further debt?
Kanye West is apparently being sued for $228,000 USD by Istanbul-based firm DDE Sourcing. This relates to the production of his YEEZY Season 2, 3 and 4 lines.
More precisely, DDE founder Derya Gulseven states that they were eliminated from the YEEZY Season 2 agreement “just months before the scheduled delivery date.” Having added that “Gulseven was allegedly robbed of her 7 percent commission – or $87,000 USD – on the $1.25 million USD order [for YEEZY Season 2].” Not to mention, her commission rate for YEEZY Season 3 was initially 7 percent while West Brands presumably only gave her 4 percent commission, offering “her a check for only $77,246 USD ‘with no explanation’ as to the reduced commission rate”.
Will the YEEZY brand be able to recover from this latest set back? Only time will tell but what we do know is, that’s one hell of a lot of money.
