Just last week Kanye West declared on twitter that there will never be a Kylie Puma anything, not knowing that Kylie had already signed a deal with Puma. The 38 year old rapper revealed he wasn’t consulted about Kylie Jenner’s new partnership with Puma, and he was pissed off about it.
Kanye revealed to TMZ on Wednesday as he was making his way into the terminal at LAX that he had no idea that his sister in law blindsided him by secretly signing with his athletic wear competitor Puma: ”She had already signed and I was mad for a little bit… but I’m really happy for her though.’
He also shed a bit more light on his financial situation:
“I spent 53 million over the past 13 years chasing my dreams and I wanted to make sure all entrepreneurs that it’s possible to go under and still make it out.
You know with my shoes I know I’m going to make it better but there’s times it was definitely hard, there was times it was a struggle, there were times it was frustrating because it felt like if you make the Yeezys maybe someone will come out and support you.
It felt like if you are a dope artist then maybe someone will support you, but that didn’t happen. The only company that ever supported me was Adidas, without Adidas I wouldn’t have had his fashion show at Madison Square Garden or even been inspired for my new album The Life Of Pablo.”
It was announced earlier this week that the Kylie Jenner signed a deal with Puma and has even wrapped shooting her first campaign with them.
