If you’re familiar with pop culture and keep tabs with entertainment news, then it’s no news to you that Kim and Kanye are separating. Yes! Kim Kardashian officially filed for divorce from husband Kanye West back in February of this year after months of speculation that separation was impending. Their marriage lasted for six years and brought forth four children but that has not stopped the power couple from calling time on their union.
Despite the rumours, it seems there’s no bad blood between Kim and Ye following their split. As part-owner husband, Kanye’s YEEZY brand gifted to her by Ye himself, the former wife of the rap mogul took time to promote some upcoming releases from the popular streetwear brand.
Kim K took to Instagram stories to pan over the upcoming releases on Friday, May 28, giving fans first look of about a dozen or so new sneaker releases from Yeezy.
As for how she became part-owner of YEEZY, she explained in a 2018 interview that Kanye had gifted stock in the company to her, it was later confirmed by Bloomberg when reporting that Kim had joined the billionaire club. “A brand offered me a million dollars to do a post on, you know, some of their clothing. And they typically…I don’t want to say who the brand is, but they typically knock off YEEZY,” she disclosed.
Kim added that after refusing to take part in the sponsored post, Ye gifted her something even better. “I open the envelope and it’s a million-dollar check and it was a note saying, ‘Thank you for always supporting me and not posting.’ And then, in the rest of the envelope, it was a contract to be an owner of YEEZY and my percentage.”
Those Yeezy gears look hot anyway.
