Kanye West’s signature forged in alleged New York Fashion Week scam

Kanye West attends the the Versace fall 2019 fashion show at the American Stock Exchange Building in lower Manhattan

He reportedly began negotiations with the designer and asked $900,000 for Yeezy's performance at the event - which was never going to happen.

Highsnobiety has reached out to Philipp Plein for comment.

He allegedly negotiated a almost million dollar contract for Kanye's performance, including a $900,000 advance, which, according to TMZ, Plein wired to an account associated with the scammer. The contract states that the deal involved walking the red carpet, attending the catwalk presentation, and staying for a dinner (decked out in Philipp Plein, obviously). [Plein's] now making aggressive offers, like mid-six figures, for an artist to do three songs.

Kanye West started Donda's House after his mother, Donda West passed away in 2007. He says the Plein and himself agreed on a "t-shirt" shortly after recanting on their "concert" agreement.

They were also allowed a travel budget for West, Yusef, the orchestra and the kids, totalling $170,000.

But David Ibbotson, from Crowle, who was lying Sala to the United Kingdom to join Cardiff City, has not been found. Cardiff fans can be heard calling them "sick" as a steward approaches the pair.

The Blast also reports that an additional $150,000 was wired to Burundi Partlow Consulting, which is a Chicago-based company.

TMZ even obtained what appears to be a contract document showing a Kanye West signature, presumably forged by the individual in question. Music... so if the media knows that much, we can assume police hopefully won't be too long in tracking the man down?!

Malik Yusef, West's friend and collaborator, was the one who booked the spot according to The Blast.
