Kanye West Claims Virgil Abloh Was Killed By LVMH CEO
Kanye West is accusing LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault of killing his late friend and fashion designer Virgil Abloh.
On Tuesday (Oct. 4), the 45-year-old rapper/fashion designer took to Instagram with an alarming post, accusing Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy’s CEO Bernard Arnault of killing his late friend Virgil Abloh. Kanye West wrote:
“SPANK MY HAND WITH THE RULER(S) I’LL GO SIT IN THE “PRINCIPAL(S)” OFFICE CAN’T WE TALK ABOUT MORE IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE HOW LATE THE SHOW WAS OR HOW BERNARD ARNAULT KILLED MY BEST FRIEND EVERYONE’S GOT A RIGHT TO AN OPINION RIGHT THERE’S MINE”
Virgil Abloh tragically passed away in November 2021 after silently battling cardiac angiosarcoma, an aggressive and rare form of cancer.
Kanye’s alarming accusation comes after the rapper declared Arnault his new rival and biggest competitor during a fashion show. According to reports, the “Jesus Walks” artist addressed the CEO during his surprise YZYSZN9 runway show on Monday (Oct. 3) during Paris Fashion Week.
“Bernard Arnault is my new Drake. After my first collection, Yeezy One, got more views than Chanel, I had a meeting with Bernard Arnault and he offered me a deal for the Kanye West line, and three months after that, he pulled on the deal. So my second collection didn’t have a producer.”
At the same show, Kanye West was seen sporting a “White Lives Matter” shirt, sparking major controversy and backlash. The shirt was also worn by conservative influencer Candace Owens who attended the showcase. The rapper responded to the criticism by calling Black Lives Matter a scam.
In a now deleted Instagram post, the “Praise God” rapper wrote:
“EVERYONE KNOWS BLACK LIVES MATTER WAS A SCAM. NOW IT’S OVER. YOU’RE WELCOME.”
After seeing the controversial display, friends like Jaden Smith opted to walk out of the fashion show, while Boosie BadAzz put Kanye on blast over on Twitter.
