Kanye West has begun his legal battle against the Gap clothing brand and he has lawyered up with none other than Tesla CEO’s lawyer Alex Spiro so he can legally beat Gap for the clothing that they have ‘sequestered’ according to West.
Recently Ye made an agreement with the Gap stores so he could design a Yeezy collection for the store, however, they have terminated their contract recently, due to visions not being aligned, this includes the Yeezy sunglasses that they recently were promoting.
Ye collection was supposed to be in the $20 dollar price range
During the interview he mentioned that the main reason for the break up was because of the Gap wanted to over-price the collection, while West waned to be in the $20 range.
Ye posted on social media that they have his creations kidnapped
Ye went to Instagram and posted the following message directed at Gap “give me all the clothes they are holding hostage in the office and in the wash houses.”
Everyone knows that I’m the leader, I’m the king
It is now known that Ye finished his partnership with Gap, and his team issued a statement saying that “Gap left Ye no choice but to terminate their collaboration agreement because of Gap’s substantial noncompliance,”
Meanwhile, Ye spoke freely in a very West style “Everyone knows that I’m the leader, I’m the king,” he said to CNBC while elaborating “A king can’t live in someone else’s castle. A king has to make his own castle.”
On the other hand, Gap’s president had a different story that is not really contradictory, but they are yet to reveal which were the real causes of the break-up between both creative teams
Gap president issued a statement
Mark Breitbard wrote “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,”
