Family first or is it all about the money? This is the looming question that people want to know regarding Kylie Jenner and the status of her business relationship with PUMA.
About one week ago, reports of Kylie signing a million dollar deal with Puma circulated the web, with Kylie shortly after posting a picture of a happy puppy on Instagram with the caption, “mood.” The confusion later set in when the post was deleted and followed by a couple of tweets from the Twitter rant king himself, Mr. Kanye West.
“1000% there will never be a Kylie Puma anything. That’s on my family! 1000% Kylie is on Yeezy team!!!,” he tweeted, refuting the rumors. In attempt to protect his family, the rapper, whose working relationship with Adidas resulted in a successful sneaker line, continued on: “Puma we gone give you your measly million dollars back!!! Never try to divide the family!!!” he ended.
Despite her brother in law’s public disapproval, sources tell NiceKicks.com that the deal is not only still on but Kylie and Puma have already gotten the ball rolling with a few photo shoots. Contrary to Rihanna’s collection with Puma, Jenner will instead work for their organization as a brand ambassador; modeling and advertising their gear to her over 51.5 million social media followers.
There has been no official confirmation from Kylie Jenner, but we can only imagine how upset Kanye would be if this turned out to be true.
Stay tuned as the story unfolds!
