Kanye West fired a barbaric shot at Adidas for “blatantly copying” his Yeezy slides.
The rapper and sports brand have been collaborating for almost a decade, but he’s shut down their latest release – the Adilette slide.
The brand’s new shoes were launched earlier this month but the Gold Digger singer, 45, called them “fake Yeezys”.
He named the company’s CEO Kasper Rorstad in an angry Instagram statement on Monday, writing: “THIS IS MAY be driving down the same street Kobe walked. Maybe. I feel the Mamba spirit right now.
“As for Kasper, I don’t support this blatant copying anymore. For all sports shoe culture. For every rapper who plays football or even if you work at the store. This is for all. those who want to express themselves but feel they can’t cause them” will lose their contract or be called crazy.
“Brave without fear. Courage is overcoming fear for your truth. Hey Ye with the blue paint on my face.”
He continued: “This shoe represents the disrespect that those in power have towards talent. This shoe is a fake Yeezy made by adidas itself. I won’t speak to DC about that. hey. Kasper talk to me. Happy Monday.”
While it’s unclear if the two sides will split, the Adidas CEO has previously spoken out in defense of Kanye and his controversial comments.
And while the artist now known as Ye is hinting at Instagram, ex-wife Kim Kardashian seems to be in a much better mood as she shares sweet snaps with her new lover Pete Davidson.
The reality TV star wore a small black string bikini in the photo as she stood next to the former Saturday Night Live star in the crystal blue water as they kissed.
Pete is topless with visible tattoos and wears a pair of black swimming trunks and black Prada sunglasses.

On a recent episode of The Kardashians, Kim admitted she tried to protect Pete from public drama regarding dating her.
Kanye regularly snaps photos of Pete and the pair’s relationship, but Kim said during a confessional on the show: “I never wanted the person I’m dating to be subject to public scrutiny. just because we’re dating.
“He knows what he’s getting himself into, but I’m trying to minimize any tabloid drama.”
