Kanye West is being sued by a former Yeezy staff member.

Kanye West has been going through a lot as of late. Although, he only has himself to blame for a lot of the backlash he has been hit with. Just months ago, Ye went on a very bizarre anti-semitic crusade. Overall, he enlisted the likes of Milo Yiannapolous as well as Nick Fuentes, who are known white supremacists. Furthermore, he went down this weird Nazi rabbit hole in which he proclaimed his love of Hitler. His fascination with Hitler was so bizarre that even Alex Jones couldn't stomach it.

These days, Ye seems to be chilling. He has a new wife, and he keeps a low profile. He even tried to redeem himself by saying he loves Jewish people now. The reason for this: well, Jonah Hill's performance in 21 Jump Street, of course. Unfortunately for Ye, not everyone is rocking with this attempt at a redemption arc. Moreover, things could be going from bad to worse for Ye, as he was just with a lawsuit. According to TMZ, this lawsuit comes courtesy of Dora Szilagyi who was reportedly a former employee at Yeezy.

Kanye West Stuck With Another Controversy

According to the report, Dora Szilagyi was the "Director of Product Innovation" at Yeezy. The former employee was hired back in June of 2021, and according to her, Kanye allegedly got her to leave her full-time job at Adidas. Not long after her hiring, she was told that in the event she was fired without cause, she would receive a hefty severance package of $275,000. However, when she did get fired in December of 2021, she never received a dime. Now, she wants to get the money that she believes Ye owes her.

What's more, is that Szilagyi claims she doesn't think Kanye ever actually intended to give her the aforementioned severance. Simply put, it was just a lie to get her to leave a more secure job with the three stripes brand. This is currently a developing story, so stay tuned to HNHH for the latest news from around the sneaker world. Additionally, let us know what you think of all this, in the comments below.
