Rapper and fashion designer Kanye West has been accused of showing his employees explicit pictures of his former partner Kim Kardashian.
He was more recently in the news for Adidas severing their ties with him due to his anti-semitic rants. Now, some of his former employees have alleged that he used to show them porn and explicit pictures of Kim Kardashian to try and intimidate the staff.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s explicit photos
The report came from Rolling Stone and one young employee stated that West had shown him an explicit picture of Kardashian, one of the most famous reality TV stars in the world.
He says that West said to him in a 2018 job interview “My wife just sent me this”, before showing a “very revealing and personal” picture of Kardashian.
The pair filed for divorce in 2021 and at least one other employee at Yeezy alleged that the 43-year-old had shown an explicit video of Kardashian.
A third person said that West was “not afraid to show explicit images or talk about situations that should be kept private”.
Kanye West showed staff porn at work
A letter titled “The Truth About Yeezy: A Call to Action for Adidas Leadership,” was obtained by Rolling Stone and that is where the incidents were detailed.
It alleges that he showed Adidas executives porn, which the insiders say was a common occurrence. A 30-minute documentary on YouTube shows such an incident.
“Is this a porn movie?” one of them asked, and West replied “Yeah”.
“Jesus Christ,” one man, who had his face blurred out, said back.
“Come on, man, come on,” the man said while pushing the phone away as West tried to force them into watching more.
“I feel it was a tactic to break a person down and establish their unwavering allegiance to him, testing and destroying people’s boundaries,” one person said, while another claimed that West specifically targeted female employees.
