After his Yeezy Season 4 NYFW show became known more for falling models rather than its fashionable outfits, Kanye West went on a rampage! No one was safe, as Ye, reportedly suffering from a ‘nervous breakdown, fired everyone on his staff!
If anyone was around Kanye, 39, following the Sept. 7 Yeezy Season 4 event, they probably ended up unemployed. “He had his agent fire all 30 of his staff after the fashion show and got rid of his phone so people can only contact him via email,” an insider tells PageSix.
After his show received reviews ranging from “hot mess” to “abomination,” Kanye reportedly suffered a “massive meltdown,” according to the insider. “He had a nervous breakdown after the show and that’s what triggered it all.” Yikes. Beware the wrath of Kanye!
Or maybe not? Kanye cleaning house after his disastrous showing at New York Fashion Week might lead some to think he took his frustrations out on his staff, but another source tells PageSix that Ye didn’t lose his head. “He didn’t have a ‘nervous breakdown,’” the second insider claims. “Some people got let go, and there was a reorganization of others who he moved back to the music side of things.”
Kanye also refocused on music following the fashion show flop. Ye returned to his “Saint Pablo Tour,” but even then, he wasn’t spared from drama and emotional anguish. He was busy performing at the Meadows Music Festival in NYC when he found out that Kim Kardashian, 35, had been robbed in Paris. Kanye then cut the show short to be by his wife’s side.
Fashion may be the farthest thing from Kanye’s mind following Kim’s terrifying robbery, but don’t think Ye won’t be back on the runway. Though he’s “disappointed” in how people didn’t like his latest fashion line, but the “No More Parties In L.A.” rapper is now “more determined than ever to get that stuff right,” according to the second source. ”So, expect Season 5 in the future. As for the rumor that he threw away his cell phone? “If he did, then it’s not the first time. He always does that.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did Kanye fire his staff due to a “massive meltdown” or do you think that he was just reorganizing his business? Did you like Yeezy Season 4?
