Back in Febuary, Kanye West ranted over Kylie Jenner’s Puma deal, even boasting at one point to return the sports brand’s ‘miserly $1m’..
In latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, it is clear how furious the rapper and wife Kim were about the move, which was masterminded my momager Kris Jenner.
Speaking over dinner while they holiday in Cuba, Kim tells her sisters that they only found out about the deal after Kylie shot the campaign, and describes it as a “conflict of interest”Kim,explains that Kris then decided to approach Puma.
An angry Kanye then fired back
It’s like if I made a show on Sunday night and I didn’t tell anyone about it,” he fumes.
“But I did a couple shows with you first so people saw me and thought I was cool on camera and then they offered me a deal and I did it and didn’t tell any of y’all.
“And then I brought all my cool friends in like Jay Z and Beyonce on the show.”
“I know that it’s a really weird situation because it’s family, but it’s like…”
Khloe then agrees that they should have “presented it to Kanye first”.
To camera, an upset Kim explains
Kanye had Kylie walk in his first two fashion shows. He really believed in her as a part of his brand.”I understand that my mum’s job as a manager is to get us deals but I feel like sometimes everything has to be really carefully played out – and I feel like that was a conflict of interest.”
Later on in the episode, Kim brings up the subject again with sister Kourtney.
“So I have my friends are calling me saying, ‘Isn’t Kanye so p**sed Kylie did Puma?’ Like, people who don’t even know how the deal went down or anything like that.
“I just wish my mum spoke about it with us because we’re such a close family that we should all be able to communicate so we don’t step on each other’s toes.”
But an unfazed Kris tells her it’s just part of her job as “mum and manager”.
“It kind of goes with the territory of wearing all these different hats and being mum and manager. I run a business and the biggest part of my business is making sure that I really pay attention to what works for everyone involved.”What if I wasn’t related to any of you? I’d be making business decisions based on deals that come in and are the best fit for each one of my clients.“Sometimes it’s about a business decision which is completely not personal,”
