You Almost Have to Respect This $900,000 Kanye West Fashion Week Scam

West's wife, Kim Kardashian tweeted on Wednesday that her husband would not be performing at any fashion show this season and this was just a rumour.

TMZ reports that the guy involved is "a former friend" of the singer's and a one-time associate of G.O.O.D.

Neither of the parties have commented on the matter yet, but speculations are that Plein will take legal action against the man behind the forgery.




The clothing brand wired a $900,000 advance to an account, but reps for Kanye West came forward and claimed Malik Yusef misrepresented himself and scammed Kanye and Philipp Plein. Unfortunately, no one from the fashion house saw the report last June that West is no longer affiliated with the organization formerly known as Donda's House, now called Art of Culture Incorporated. Another $150,000 was allegedly sent to Burundi Partlow Consulting, who, The Blast was told, put Plein's representatives in touch with Yusef several months ago to clinch the deal. "But unfortunately an individual pretended to be part of his management team and acted without Kanye's knowledge, capitalizing on a former friendship with him".

West was to perform three songs with an orchestra and bring with him six children affiliated with a charity that West co-founded and named after his late mother, according to a contract reviewed by The Blast. He's adamant he's not scamming anyone and points out he's been working with Kanye for years ... and they run a foundation together.

Others, in turn couldn't resist taking advantage of the situation: one user poked fun at the bad blood between Kanye and Canadian rapper Drake.
