  • According to Rolling Stone, Kanye West once made a designer sit on the floor for an hour-long meeting.

  • An ex-employee said the incident occurred after a disagreement between West and the designer.

  • Reportedly the designer was working on an adidas-Yeezy line.

Kanye West, also known as Ye, made a young female designer sit on the floor for an hour-long meeting, according to Rolling Stone, which cited a former employee who was in the room.

The publication spoke to more than a dozen former Adidas and Yeezy employees. Former employees who requested anonymity told the publication that West created a toxic environment for those who worked under him on the Adidas-Yeezy partnership. The collaboration between the rapper and the sportswear giant lasted for nine years.

Former employees said West would admire some workers, while others he previously supported. A former employee described this as “playing mind games”.

The former employee cited by the publication said the incident began over a disagreement between West and the young designer.

“You don’t deserve to sit at the table,” the former employee recalled West saying before making the designer sit on the floor for the rest of the meeting, which lasted for hours.

Some former employees also told the publication that West had shown them explicit images of his then-wife Kim Kardashian on several occasions.

West was dropped by Adidas on October 25 following a series of scandals and intense public criticism. In one incident, the rapper posted a series of anti-Semitic tweets. His account was locked after the post but was later restored.

An adidas spokesperson said: “adidas does not tolerate hate speech and offensive behavior and has therefore terminated the adidas Yeezy partnership. We have been and continue to be actively involved in dialogue with our employees about those incidents.” We will keep that which gives reason to set aside our decision.” Partnerships. They have our full support and as we work through the details of the termination, we have been clear that we want to keep the talents and skills of our employees within the organization.

“Having said that, we will not discuss the private conversations, details or events that lead to our decision to end the adidas Yeezy partnership and decline to comment on any related speculation.”

Representatives for Yeezy did not respond to Insider’s request for comment. West could not be reached directly for comment.
