Kanye West said sister-in-law Kylie Jenner would ‘never’ sign with PUMA, but she proved him wrong. On Feb. 17 he admitted he was pissed at her for betraying his Adidas allegiance! So is he still mad? Find out in the video, here.
Kanye West, 38, was totally furious when he found out Kylie Jenner, 18, had gone behind his back and signed a deal with PUMA instead of Adidas, who produces his Yeezy line of sneakers. Check out the interview where he explains it all, here.
On Feb. 9 after reports came out that Kylie was offered a shoe deal with PUMA, Kanye tweeted ”1000% there will never be a Kylie Puma anything. That’s on my family! 1000% Kylie is on Yeezy team!!!” Well, on Feb. 17, Kylie proved him wrong by signing on as PUMA’s new spokesperson.
TMZ caught up with Kanye at LAX, and he admitted that he already knew Kylie had signed the deal when he tweeted his outrage. “She had already signed, and I was mad for a little bit,” he said, seeming much calmer about the situation. “But I’m really happy for her now.”
Perhaps it was his friend Rihanna that changed his mind on the issue. He took to Twitter on Feb. 12 to share his support for the singer after she debuted her Fenty x PUMA line at New York Fashion Week. “Wow the paradigm has shifted, She killed it… everything is changed now!!!! Lil Sis kiiiiiiiilled this sh*t!!!!!!!” he wrote, along with a photo of Rihanna walking in the show.
His real “Lil sis” is about to “kill it” too. Kylie will appear in PUMA’s Spring/Summer training campaign, according to TMZ. The campaign kicks off in April. A spokesperson told the website Kylie’s involvement would usher in “a fresh and exciting new era for fashion and we couldn’t think of a more fitting and influential female to headline this campaign.” Congrats Kylie, and way to be supportive, Kanye!
