Page Six reports that Kanye West fired his entire fashion team after Yeezy Season 4 wasn’t as well received as previous collections. Yeezy Season 3 was widely seen as a success — even critics who didn’t like the clothing agreed that it was a great spectacle. Season 4 however was less inspiring. Even the publication Fashionista titled their review, ”Kidnapped by Kanye West: The Yeezy Season 4 Story” and Esquire was even more blunt about the whole showcase saying, “Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 was a total failure.”

According to an unnamed insider, “He had his agent fire all 30 of his staff after the fashion show and got rid of his phone so people can only contact him via email.” Another unnamed sourced countered the prior quote, saying “He didn’t have a ‘nervous breakdown.’ Some people got let go, and there was a reorganization of others who he moved back to the music side of things. He’s a grownup. He was reflective and disappointed in how things went . . . He took stock in what people were saying and he was disappointed. But he’s more determined than ever to get that stuff right. And as far as throwing away his cellphone? If he did, then it’s not the first time. He always does that.”
