Kanye West Reportedly Places New Yeezy Headquarters Next Door To Adidas Store
Kanye West isn’t letting Adidas get rid of him that easily.
The rapper/businessman is said to have established the new Yeezy headquarters next to an Adidas store in Los Angeles, months after the sportswear brand severed ties with him.
A tweet shared by the Yeezy fan site Donda Times shows that the alleged new location is situated on Melrose Avenue, with just a hair salon standing between the company and its former distributor.
Kanye West’s last known office location was reportedly facing eviction after missing two months’ worth of rent, totaling $63,254 when the news broke. Kanye West first rented the office space in 2015, when Yeezy was operating as West Brands Fashion. Kanye initially committed to paying $31,477.40 per month at the lease signing and did so in full before skipping the payments for November and December.
As previously reported, Adidas decided to break off its relationship with Kanye West and his Yeezy apparel label in 2022 following several antisemitic rants from the controversial Chicago rapper — a move that knocked him off Forbes’ billionaires’ list. The former business partners reportedly came to an agreement in February that would allow the sportswear brand to sell off the collection’s remaining items.
The announcement of the new Yeezy headquarters comes shortly after a judge mandated that Kanye pay creative director Katelyn Mooney $300,000 as compensation for organizing a Yeezy photoshoot in 2022.
