Kanye West admits that he was pissed when his sister-in-law Kylie Jenner signed on to represent PUMA.
You may recall that it was just last week when the rapper – who has a partnership with Adidas for Yeezy Boost shoes – went on a Twitter rant about Kylie being loyal to Team Yeezy, and that she wouldn’t be signing on to rep his rival.
“1000% there will never be a Kylie Puma anything,” he wrote. “That’s on my family! 1000% Kylie is on Yeezy team!!!”
“PUMA, we gone give you your measley million dollars back!!! Never try to divide the family!!!,” he added.
Ye’s rant didn’t produce the result he wanted because Kylie’s million dollar PUMA deal is now official. Adam Petrick, Global Director of Brand and Marketing for PUMA, told E! News in a statement Wednesday, “I am pleased and excited to be able to confirm that PUMA is indeed working with Kylie Jenner. Kylie will be featured in the brand’s Spring/Summer women’s training campaign launching in April 2016. Kylie represents a fresh and exciting new era for fashion and we couldn’t think of a more fitting and influential female to headline this campaign for PUMA.
TMZ photogs caught up with West at LAX on Wednesday, and he acknowledged Kylie blindsided him by secretly signing with PUMA. He also dropped some choice words about his $53 million debt. “It’s possible to go under and still make it out,” he said. Kanye’s quest to become the next Yves Saint Laurent in not attracting any new investors. Reportedly, no one will go near him now.
