Kanye West Was Reportedly A Victim Of Identity Theft - His Signature Got Forged And Fashion Designer Philipp Plein Was Scammed
Kanye West is the victim of identity theft. The Shade Room has all the details, and the story also involved fashion designer Philipp Plein. Here's what happened.
TSR writes that 'According to @TMZ_TV, a former associate forged Kanye’s signature and scammed fashion designer #PhilippPlein out of $900K!.'
They continue and report that 'Sources close to the situation say the suspect actually knows Kanye and reportedly contacted Philipp to broker a deal for a performance Kanye was supposed to do at Philipp’s show. The guy misrepresented himself to Plein’s team as a rep for Kanye and began negotiations for the performance.'
Plein not only fell for this whole scam, but he also sent a contract over where the suspect forged Kanye’s signature.
People have been making fun of what happened in the comments section, bashing the fashion designer for acting the way he did.
Someone said 'Damn, so u mean to tell me the skills I used to forge my mom signature could've actually been used for something lucrative 🤔 I gotta get with the scamming team.'
Another follower wrote 'If I’m paying 900k, I betta see Kanye West sign it in front of me.'
One other commenter posted this: 'right..... I would think nearly a million dollars would make someone want to pick up a call.'
Recently, Kanye and Pete Davidson spent some time together even though the SNL comedian has criticized the rapper before for his MAGA wearing ways and comments on mental health.
Kim Kardashian took to social media to post some pics from Kid Cudi’s exclusive birthday dinner, and Pete can be seen sitting at the table with actor Timothée Chalamet, and behind them, there's Kanye.
