Kanye West Files Lawsuit Against Walmart for Selling Knockoff Yeezys

Ye’s Clothing Brand, Yeezy Owes California More Than $600,000

The bricks are still falling out of Ye‘s house as California has stated that his brand, Yeezy owes the state over half a million in taxes.

According to NBC News, the artist formerly known as Kanye West has tax issues in the state of California. The state is claiming that his brand, Yeezy Apparel, over the past two years allegedly owes more than $600,000.

The company has been sent a series of state tax lien notices stating the amount is for an unpaid text debt. Yeezy Apparel has been sent three separate notice letters. The initial one was sent in July 2021, another one was sent earlier this year in February, and the latest one was this past September.

His troubles are related to several high-end companies separating themselves from the combative recording artist over the past several months. He has been spewing antisemitic and anti-Black statements as of late and it has affected his finances.

Yeezy Apparel has been operating as a business in California since 2017. As recently as January 2022, according to public business records in California, the company was listed as being active and in “good” standing. Yeezy Apparel is one of five Yeezy limited liability corporations being managed by Ye in the Golden State.

NBC News discovered that there were 17 government-imposed liens in California that are listed against three of the businesses that Ye owns. There are four that have been labeled active with no signs of any of them being resolved.

On Thursday, the controversial music producer had an honorary degree rescinded due to his recent controversies spewing antisemitic views.

In 2015, he received an honorary college degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).

The school issued a statement on Dec. 8, announcing that the honor bestowed upon him had been taken away due to his recent behavior.

“The School of the Art Institute of Chicago condemns and repudiates Kanye West’s (now known as Ye) anti-Black, antisemitic, racist, and dangerous statements, particularly those directed at Black and Jewish communities. Ye’s actions do not align with SAIC’s mission and values, and we’ve rescinded his honorary degree.”
