Dozens of celebs may have showed up to Kanye West‘s Adidas show last Thursday, but according to the controversial rapper, he has lost several friends ever since he started dating and eventually marrying Kim Kardashian West.
This was especially the case in the fashion world, where the 37-year-old has worked hard to establish relationships with high-end designers.
In a recent interview, he confessed:
“Soon as we started dating, fashion people were really opposed to the idea of reality stars. And all the relationships, the somewhat friends that I had somewhat built up, completely turned their backs on her and me. They already had their back to her, and now they turned it to me.”
Prior to his venture with Adidas, the Yeezus musician had two fashion lines which were poorly received by critics. However, he used these crisis-turned-opportunity moments to re-start his clothing venture from the ground up:
“The so-called traction that I was getting in the high-fashion world was completely thrown out the window and I was finally allowed to go to school├óΓé¼┬ª Every day I was in my mom [Kris Jenner]’s house, in my little brother’s old room, Rob‘s old room, re-tailoring a C├â┬⌐line skirt, re-tailoring a Saint Laurent jacket, re-tailoring a Zara top, re-tailoring Wolford ├óΓé¼┬ª And day by day by day, [Kim and I] learned, we got better. We looked at the photographs together and she improved my style, we improved each other.”
Awww! He totally calls Kris his mom and Rob his brother!
Who needs friends when you have family, right?!
