Kanye West’s Yeezy Sues Former Intern For Sharing Confidential Pictures On Instagram
Kanye West’s Yeezy has filed a lawsuit against a former intern for allegedly breaking a nondisclosure agreement.
Ryan Inwards, who was an intern for the apparel brand from February 2020 to the following summer, is being accused of posting confidential snapshots from the brand to his personal Instagram account, violating an NDA that was in place.
The lawsuit, which was filed in the L.A. County Superior Court Friday, Jan. 15th, states that the NDA Inwards signed includes a $500,000 liquidated damages clause. In signing the contract, Inwards agreed not to post any private information on social media. Yeezy says he broke the agreement when he shared pictures on his Instagram account.
The lawsuit also states that Inwards was sent several cease and desist notices, but still continued to “publicly post Unauthorized Materials on social media sites.”
Yeezy is asking for the $500,000 for breach of contract, along with punitive damages, stating that Inwards acted with malice.
