Kanye West is being sued by a sourcing agent who cites unpaid wages of US$228,000 over the production of YEEZY Season 2, 3 and 4.
Derya Gulseven was hired by West to look for manufacturers in Istanbul that could produce and distribute the YEEZY collections. She filed her complaint in November.
However, Gulseven alleges that she was not paid for her work on the YEEZY Season 2 range. In particular, she notes that she has never received the seven percent commission—amounting to US$87,000—that was agreed upon.
Gulseven got involved in the manufacturing for YEEZY Season 3. She was paid this time around, but instead of receiving the full seven percent rate, she only gained a reduced four percent commission “with no explanation.” Finally, she claims that she was not compensated at all for her efforts on YEEZY Season 4.
Gulseven is seeking to claim damages and unpaid wages that amount to US$228,000.
