The 38-year-old rapper banned everyone involved in his show at New York Fashion Week from discussing him, his wife Kim Kardashian West, 34, and his daughter North, two, or risk being slapped with a £6.5 million fine after they put pen to paper signed his non-disclosure forms.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ”Kanye’s hacked off some really high-profile models by asking them to sign the agreement, particularly because it stated that he could sue them for up to $10million if they spoke out about him.”
The source added: ”It’s a ridiculous amount and some models flat out refused. He’s not considered a great talent – everyone knows his show is just a media frenzy, so some girls would rather not be associated with him.”
However, it’s not just his models Kanye has angered as he’s also rattled fellow designer Anne Bowen by announcing at the last minute that he wants to showcase the second season of his Kanye West X Adidas Originals Collection.
The streetwear designer was forced to reschedule the date of her show from September 16 in order to stop it from clashing with the ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker’s.
She said recently: ”Kanye knows he is a media sensation and it is just not ethical to do this. It’s like we are David and he is Goliath. We have put our heart and soul into our show, and should not be stepped on like this.”
