- Employees say West showed staff an explicit photo of Kardashian, broadcast pornography and bullied female members of his Yeezy team

Kim Kardashian has been left ‘disgusted’ by claims her ex-husband Kanye West showed off risqué photos of her to his former employees, an insider has claimed.
The source, who recently spoke with Us Weekly, said the reality TV star was ‘looking into’ the claims and working to ‘confirm’ the details.
‘Kim is disgusted,’ the source told the magazine. ‘She feels violated and horrified.’
It comes just days after Rolling Stone published a letter from Adidas workers accusing the rapper of mistreatment and creating a hostile work environment at Yeezy, the collaboration he had with the sports brand.

A shocking story published in Rolling Stone earlier this week accused the rapper of creating a ‘toxic and chaotic environment’ at Yeezy, the collaboration between Ye and Adidas
Kardashian and West were married for six years and share four children together
In the letter, the group of employees who worked with Ye said the rapper showed off risqué pics of Kardashian while he was working with Adidas.
Kardashian did not immediately respond after the allegations went public, however, the insider said Friday that she wanted to wait in order to get the whole picture.
‘[She] wanted to see what photos former employees saw so she has more details,’ the insider told the magazine.
The unidentified person also said for the KKW creator, it’s ‘just another bombshell about Kanye.’
Kardashian is reportedly terrified and ‘continues to wonder what will drop next,’ the insider said.
The report published by Rolling Stone alleges that a young man who was interviewing for a job at Yeezy was shown an ‘intimate’ image of Kardashian by West just after it arrived on his phone.
Staffers also said that an ‘explicit’ video of the Kardashian was shown to several co-workers within the company.
Ye and Kardashian were married for six years before they ultimately announced their split in 2021. They share four children together: North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3.

An open letter from former members of West’s Yeezy fashion brand also accuses Adidas bosses of turning ‘their moral compass off’ amid the self-confessed porn addict’s alleged habit of showing explicit material around the office.
Employees also claimed in the article West culminated a ‘sexualized’ atmosphere in which pornography was a constant feature, and often made explicit remarks to female Yeezy and Adidas staffers.
West told a female Adidas employee in China ‘I want you to make me a shoe I can f*ck,’ while he also often played porn videos to colleagues – including home-made videos of himself and other women, as well as an explicit video of former wife Kardashian – the report claims.
Yeezy was a multi-billion-dollar fashion collaboration between West and Adidas which was terminated in October following a number of public anti-semantic rants from the musician.
Members of the team wrote in a letter that they felt ‘bullied and intimidated’ by West, and accuse their bosses of knowing about his behavior for years yet turning ‘their moral compass off.’
The Rolling Stone article said the letter, titled: ‘The Truth About Yeezy: A Call to Action for Adidas Leadership,’ accused West of being aggressive in the workplace, especially towards women.
The group said they asked Adidas to deal with the ‘toxic and chaotic environment Kanye West created.’ In another section of the letter, West is accused of subjecting workers to ‘years of verbal abuse, vulgar tirades and bullying attacks.’
Among egregious acts committed, according to staff, the rapper showed a video of a porn star Francesca Le performing a sex act with another woman to employees.
West reportedly showed employees pornography in the office, including one video of a porn star performing sexual acts with another woman
In response to that allegation, Le said in a statement: ‘I take a lot of pride in the movies that I make. It is extremely concerning, disheartening, and disappointing that someone would use my work in a way that is demeaning to other human beings.’
She continued: ‘My work is my passion and I want those who watch the movies that I make to enjoy them, not be forced into viewing them.’
The publication received several claims of incidents in which West appeared to use pornography, which he played during meetings, as a tool to bully and intimidate staff.
Former Yeezy president Pete Fox told Rolling Stone: ‘Steve Jobs or Elon Musk … they were responsible to shareholders; Kanye 100 percent owns his brands – he can do whatever he wants, and we’re just there to serve at his pleasure.’
It has been an already tumultuous year for the rapper who was dropped from several of his major brand deals and partnerships over anti-Semitic comments he made
In a statement to MailOnline earlier this week, Adidas said: ‘Adidas does not tolerate hate speech and offensive behavior and therefore has terminated the Adidas Yeezy partnership.
‘We have been and continue to be actively engaged in conversations with our employees about the events that lead to our decision to end the partnership.
‘They have our full support and as we’re working through the details of the termination, we have been clear that we want to keep our employees’ talent and skills within the organization.
How much is Kanye really worth?
Forbes estimate that Kanye is worth around $2billion, with DailyMail.com breaking down his individual deals:
ADIDAS – $1.5billion
West’s deal with Adidas was the crowning jewel of his fortune, with sales climbing to $1.7billion in 2020 – earning him $191 million in royalties.
Forbes estimates that the Yeezy business with Adidas is worth $1.5billion, and the company confirmed that they were likely to lose up to $250million of their net income in 2022 as a result of the split.
GAP X BALENCIAGA – $970million
His GAP collection was estimated at around $970million when the deal was announced in 2021, but he has since terminated his work with the retailer.
Initial products sold out in 2021, after being announced in June 2020, in a partnership which was expected to last for ten years but was cut short by West.
GAP were also part of a deal between Yeezy and Balenciaga, with estimates claiming they would bring in $1billion in projected sales.
SKIMS – $160million
West, who divorced Kim Kardashian in 2020, remains a partner in Skims but it is unclear how much he earns from that.
He previously ranted about owning 5 percent of the business, which is estimated at a $3.2billion net worth.
If that is the case then he would have a $160million stake in the company.
MUSIC – $90million
He has sold over 140 million albums worldwide, and documents seen by Forbes show that his own recorded music and publishing rights is worth at least $90million.
Between mortgages, advances and other liabilities, Forbes say West owes about $100 million.
‘Having said this, we will not discuss private conversations, details or events that led to our decision to terminate the Adidas Yeezy partnership and decline to comment on any related speculation.’
In 2019, West admitted to being a porn addict, saying: ‘For me, Playboy was my gateway into full on pornography addiction. My dad had a Playboy left out at age five and it’s affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life.
‘From age five till now, having to kick the habit and it just presents itself in the open like it’s OK and I stand up and say, ‘No, it’s not OK’.’
A video was shared by West last month apparently showing him sharing a porn movie on his phone with Adidas execs.
In the 30-minute-long video, the rapper meets with Adidas executives, whose faces are blurred out.
West could be seen meeting in a plain room surrounded by men on stools, apparently wearing Adidas sneakers, as he shows them something on his phone.
Eventually one of the men asks: ‘Is this a porn movie?’ to which West responds, ‘Yeah.’
Soon, the executive tries to swipe Kanye’s hand away and tells him to ‘come on.’
Following the termination of his Yeezy partnership, West could lose his billionaire status after also being dropped by a number of other partners, including Gap and Balenciaga.
His deal with Adidas was worth around $1.5 billion a year, netting the star around $220 million annually.
He claimed last month to have lost a masssive $2 billion in a single day after companies began to sever ties with him following his racist remarks made online.
Discussing the backlash, West insisted that ‘money is not who I am’ as he penned a ‘love letter’ to Hollywood super agent Ari Emanuel, who had called for West to be dropped by all major brands.
In a post captioned ‘LOVE SPEECH’, he penned: ‘Ari Emanuel, I lost 2 billion dollars in one day and I’m still alive. This is love speech. I still love you. God still loves you. The money is not who I am. The people is who I am.’
In an op-ed for the Financial Times, Endeavor co-CEO Emanuel wrote that there should be ‘no tolerance anywhere for West’s anti-Semitism’ and encouraged brands to fully cease partnering and working with the designer.
‘Apple and Spotify, which host West’s music, whoever organizes West’s tours, and Adidas, which collaborates with West on his fashion line, should all stop working with him,’ wrote Emanuel – essentially calling for a blacklisting.
Earlier this week, after having his Twitter account reinstated following a ban for his anti-semantic remarks, West announced he would be selling leftover Yeezy, Balenciaga and Adidas clothes for $20, ‘so everyone can afford quality clothes.’
In footage posted online, West appears almost joyful as he stands in a workspace that looks to be the host of an upcoming sample sale.
