*Kanye West urges fans not to buy the “fake Yeezys” from Adidas.

The hip-hop star posted a video on social media calling out the brand for using his name to sell unapproved colorways.

“Anybody who loves Ye would not buy these fake Yeezys I never made these color ways I’m not getting paid off of them and adidas is suing me,” West wrote on Instagram.

“All these celebrities and the public will stand against a T shirt or the color of my hat but when yall see me have my children hidden from me or see an actual Fortune 500 company rape one of your heroes in real life don’t nobody say nothing or do nothing,” the post continued. “As far as the system goes What yall gone do now Take my album down again Freeze my accounts again Threaten people to not work with me again All the new non approved 350’s are cooorny,” Ye wrote.

In a follow-up video, West further explained his issue with Adidas.

“Let me explain really clearly to you guys what’s happening now with Adidas,” he said in the clip. “Not only are they putting out fake colorways that are non-approved, they’re suing me for $250 million and they’re also not paying me for these shoes that they’re putting out that have my name on them. They’re using contract clauses and 50 years of business experience to rape an artist, one of y’all favorite artists, right in front of y’all in broad daylight.”

Kanye and Adidas announced their partnership in 2013, ending in late 2022 after Ye allegedly made antisemitic comments. At the time, the company said it “does not tolerate antisemitism and any other sort of hate speech.”

Meanwhile, we reported earlier that Ye is having trouble booking venues for live shows. He shared a clip on social media calling for help with this creative roadblock. 

“We just sold out the United Center in seven minutes and I just wanted to express to everybody out there to see if anybody can help with this,” Ye said in an Instagram Story. “It’s the only arena I had access to in the past year. And when I call, people say there’s no availables for me and you know why that is. If there’s anybody out there that can help with this, please do.”
