Kanye West showed sex tapes and Kim Kardashian photos to Yeezy staff

Kanye West frequently showed pornography, including his own sex tapes, to Yeezy employees, according to a new report from Rolling stones lifted the lid on the “disturbingly sexualized atmosphere” at the company.

A number of former Yeezy and adidas employees and creative collaborators claim the hip-hop/fashion mogul played porn during meetings and showed sexually explicit content of his then-wife Kim Kardashian and even shared videos of himself engaging in sexual activities with women.

A “young creative” recalled a meeting with Kanye in Chicago in 2018, where the rapper pulled out his phone and showed them a “very revealing” photo of Kardashian. “My wife just sent me this,” West said, according to the creative. He reportedly showed an explicit video of Kardashian to Yeezy team members on at least one other occasion that year.

Before that, in 2013, Kanye West invited an “emerging creative” to his home in the Hollywood Hills. Instead of discussing anything work-related, he allegedly showed the designer “hardcore pornography” on his laptop.

“He showed me the video of Francesca Le, a buff porn star with a strap-on dildo, fucking another girl in the ass,” said the former collaborator. “He’s like, ‘What do you think?’ not laughing at all.

“At the time I found it strange, but in keeping with his personality as an edgy artist. Now, when I see it in a larger pattern, I feel it was a tactic to break down a person and establish their unwavering allegiance to him, test and destroy people’s boundaries.”

According to a former senior Yeezy employee who saw Kanye playing porn during several meetings, the Chicago rap icon told his staff that he needed such videos playing in the background to keep him “focused.” Other former employees and associates believe he did it to “vet” workers and in some cases intimidate them.

Kanye West’s infatuation with porn apparently even fueled his actual designs. While researching Yeezy sneaker prototypes in China in 2017, he told a senior female employee, “I want you to make me a shoe that I can fuck,” according to several people who attended the meeting. Ye reportedly told another female footwear designer during a job interview in 2018: “If you ever get stuck creatively, just watch porn for 10 minutes.”

The bombshell allegations come as part of an open letter from several former high-ranking Yeezy employees who claim adidas executives were aware of Kanye’s “problematic behavior” during their lucrative but turbulent partnership with Yeezy (which has since terminated), but “turned off their moral compass”.

The letter, titled “The Truth About Yeezy: A Call to Action for Adidas Leadership,” also calls on adidas’ board members and newly installed CEO to address “the toxic and chaotic environment that Kanye West created” and “a very sick pattern “. of predatory behavior towards women”, who worked under the rapper.

“He has in years past exploded at women in the room with offensive remarks and would resort to sexually disturbing references when giving design feedback,” it reads. “This type of reaction from a brand partner is one that adidas employees should never be subjected to and that adidas management should never tolerate.”

In response, a spokesperson for adidas said Rolling stones that the company “will not discuss private conversations, details or events that lead [sic] to our decision to terminate the adidas Yeezy partnership and decline to comment on any related speculation.”

But the spokesman added: “We have been and continue to be actively engaged in conversations with our staff about the events leading up to [sic] to our decision to terminate [Yeezy] partnership. They have our full support, and while we work through the details of the termination, we have been clear that we want to retain the talent and skills of our employees in the organization.”

Kanye West has made no secret of his love for porn in the past. In a 2019 interview with Apple Music’s Zane Loweadmitted the Chicago native that his porn addiction has played a big role in his life since he was a child.

“For me, Playboy was my gateway to full pornography addiction,” he said. “My dad had one Playboy left out at the age of five, and it affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life.”

In 2018, Ye was even hired as creative director of the inaugural Pornhub Awards in Los Angeles, where he designed “custom erotica-inspired statues” in the form of dildos for each winner, in addition to premiering his “I Love It” video featuring Lil Pump.

However, Kanye also seems aware of the destructive side of his porn obsession, admitting earlier this year that “pornography destroyed my family.”
