Lawsuit Claims Kanye West Threatened To Lock Donda Students In Cages

A lawsuit filed by former Yeezy and Donda Academy employee Trevor Phillips in Los Angeles claims Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) threatened to lock students in cages.

According to NBC News and Rolling Stone, Phillips also alleges Ye frequently praised Hitler and once compared himself to the Nazi leader (“minus the gas chambers”), simulated masturbation during a one-on-one hotel room meeting, and threatened to punch Phillips during a “temper tantrum.”

The lawsuit also accuses Ye of verbally abusing Black staff and treating them “considerably worse than white employees,” as well as telling his employees that they could be fired for being “fat.” The singer is also alleged to have temporarily delayed payment to workers after his Yeezy bank accounts were frozen.

Phillips, who was transferred to Donda Academy after adidas cut ties with Ye over a string of anti-Semitic behavior, claims that Ye continued to “double down” on making anti-Semitic statements and threatened to go after the LGBTQ+ community “next.” On being pushed back by Phillips, Ye responded with “incessant harassment, humiliation, and attempts to both mentally control and destroy” him.

The lawsuit also claims that Ye went after Phillips’ medical condition and his daughter, raising his hand and pointing at Phillip’s neck condition, screaming: “F*** your neck!” “Then pointing at the school, Kanye belched, ‘And f*** your daughter. I don’t give a f*** about none of that,’” the suit reads.

Phillips’ suit seeks more than $35,000 in damages for claims of discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful termination, among others.
