JPMorgan Chase Calls It Quits With Kanye West; The Billionaire Responds



Kanye West’s Yeezy empire will need to find a new bank because his banking relationship with JPMorgan Chase has come to an end.

Candace Owens shared a statement in which she stated that the banking giant will close Kanye West’s accounts by November 21.

“JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A (the “Bank”) has decided to end its banking relationship with Yeezy, LLC and its affiliated entities (collectively, the “Company”). To provide the Company with sufficient time to transition to another financial institution, we will continue to maintain the accounts (attached as Exhibit A) including all related products and services, until November 21, 2022,” the statement read.

The statement also advised West not to make any transactions five days before the scheduled closure date to avoid any delays and prompted the Yeezy founder to find a new institution in preparation.

West has responded and confirmed the ending of his banking relationship with JPMorgan during a screening of Candace Owens’ new documentary on Wednesday, Oct. 13.

“Hey, if you call somebody out for bad business, that means you’re being anti-Semitic. I feel happy to have crossed the line of that idea so we can speak openly about things like getting canceled by a bank,” West said, according to Page Six.

This isn’t West’s only business relationship that has been severed recently.

West’s partnership with Gap is coming to a close, eight years early. He claims the retailer did not uphold their end of the bargain, such as opening Yeezy stores by 2023.

“It’s time for me to go it alone,” West told Bloomberg. “It’s fine. I made the companies money. The companies made me money. We created ideas that will change apparel forever. Like the round jacket, the foam runner, the slides that have changed the shoe industry. Now it’s time for Ye to make the new industry. No more companies standing in between me and the audience.”
