Kanye West has been engaged in a court battle with Adidas for the greater part of six months. Overall, it all started when Kanye began stalking them on social media.
He made it abundantly obvious that he wanted out of his contract. He was, however, a tremendous cash cow for Adidas, and they obviously didn’t want to let him leave. Kanye then resorted to anti-Semitism, forcing Adidas’ hand. As a result, they let him go knowing what the financial consequences would be.
Last week, we reported on how it was confirmed that Adidas was able to freeze Kanye West’s assets last year. While speaking to the paparazzi, Ye had made the claim that $75 million was frozen across his Yeezy bank accounts. At the time, many weren’t so sure about the validity of this claim, although it ended up being truthful. Since then, Ye and Adidas have continued to fight over these accounts. Recently, according to HipHopDX, Ye actually scored a huge win against the three stripes brand.
After getting his bank accounts back, Adidas had filed for an emergency re-freeze, telling the courts that they would be subjected to “irreparable harm.” Well, the judge was not fond of this argument. Consequently, Ye scored a temporary win that allows him to hold onto his assets, at least for the time being. Subsequently, Adidas is set to ask for a normal asset freeze, in a few days from now. However, it remains to be seen whether or not they will be successful in this endeavor.
Interestingly enough, today is supposed to be the day that Yeezy sneakers begin to restock on the Adidas website. Overall, sneakerheads have been very excited about this moment. That said, it still remains to be seen which models will drop. After all, this is the last chance to cop some Yeezys, as they will be all gone after next week.
