- Rolling Stone spoke to multiple former Yeezy staff about rapper Kanye West’s behavior.
- One creative said West showed him an intimate image of his then-wife, Kim Kardashian, in 2018.
- West also showed Yeezy’s creative team an explicit video of Kardashian, per Rolling Stone’s sources.
Kanye West, the rapper now known as Ye, once showed Yeezy staff an explicit video of his then-wife Kim Kardashian, per a bombshell Rolling Stone report.
Rolling Stone spoke to more than two dozen former employees for Yeezy and Adidas. Some of these staffers described how West, unprompted and on multiple occasions, showed them explicit imagery of Kardashian.
One incident documented by Rolling Stone involved a 2018 meeting with the Yeezy creative team. At this meeting, West screened an explicit video of Kardashian, according to Rolling Stone’s interview with a person who says they saw the video.
Another such occasion in 2018 happened during a meeting between West and an unnamed young creative in Chicago, Rolling Stone reported. The creative was meeting with West for a job interview and found West dancing to his own songs. The staff member told Rolling Stone that West whipped out his phone and said: “My wife just sent me this.”
According to the creative, West showed him an intimate photo of Kardashian.
“It was very revealing and personal. I didn’t really react,” said the creative.
Rolling Stone also reported on other incidents where West played pornography — not involving Kardashian — in front of Yeezy collaborators.
A Yeezy collaborator told Rolling Stone West showed him an explicit video of porn star Francesca Le engaged in a sexual act with another woman. The man was describing what he was asked to look at on the rapper’s laptop screen during a meeting they had at West’s Hollywood Hills home, where they were meant to discuss a potential project.
“He’s like, ‘What do you think of it?’ Not laughing at all,” the creative told Rolling Stone.
The media outlet also spoke to two other creatives, including one who worked with West during the early days of Yeezy, who said West once showed them amateur porn videos of himself having sex with women.
A representative for Kardashian and a lawyer for West did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
