Kanye West — and whatever outspoken thing he’s done or said — if often a leading topic in entertainment. As of the last few weeks, it seems the rap star has been making even more headlines than usual. 

Struggling to keep up? We’ve broken down some of the current Ye headlines:

Adidas places Yeezy partnership under review

The shoe and clothing brand issued a statement Thursday that said they’re reviewing the partnership with the rapper after attempts to resolve issues behind closed doors. According to Complex, the statement reads in part, “After repeated efforts to privately resolve the situation, we have taken the decision to place the partnership under review.” The news comes after Ye posted images, later shared by The Shade Room, of the brand’s “fake Yeezy” slides back in June. 

Ye roasts Kim K’s fashion choices 

During the latest episode of The Kardashians, Kim shared a few text messages sent from her ex-husband about her fashion choices. Kim said Kanye reached out about the “orange look” that made him “so mad.” He allegedly said via text, “I would have went to jail before I went out in that.”

Ye says his dad supports his “White Lives Matter” shirt

In a repost by The Neighborhood Talk, the music producer shared a recent text thread between him and his dad about his decision to wear the controversial shirt during a recent fashion show. Ye says he made his “Black Panther father proud.” Since sporting the shirt, Ye has responded to criticism from many celebrities and public figures.

Who should play Kanye in a biopic?

Amid all of the controversy, Ye took to social media to inquire about who’d be best to play him in a movie. His pick was Jamie Foxx, “one of the greatest geniuses,” he said.
