According to reports, the Holywood talent agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA) has now dropped Ye due to his recent anti-Semitic statements. A source has noted that CAA has ended its working relationship with the creative following the backlash generated by the anti-Semitic sentiments he has spread on both social media and in recent interviews.

Additionally, other reports have also noted that Ye’s G.O.O.D. Music record label is no longer Def Jam Recordings. It is unclear if the split is because of his recent anti-Semitic statements, as Ye’s contract with the label expired following the 2021 release of 2021’s Donda.

The news comes after Ye has seemingly emboldened a hate group to display signs furthering the anti-Semitic viewpoint on Interstate 405 in Los Angeles. Last week, the French multinational corporation specializing in luxury goods, Kering, officially announced that Balenciaga has split ways with Ye stating, “Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist.”

In case you missed it, JPMorgan Chase ended its banking relationship with YEEZY earlier this month.
