Kanye West drops off Forbes billionaires list after Adidas ends partnership

Kanye West has fallen off the list of the world’s richest billionaires compiled by Forbes after Adidas cut ties with him over antisemitic comments he made on social media.

The artist, who legally changed his name to Ye and was ranked number 1513 on Forbes’ rich list earlier this year, had a multi-year deal to design his trainer brand Yeezy for the German sportswear company.
