He died on November 28, 2021 at the age of 41 after a battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare type of cancer.

“After my first collection, Yeezy One, got more views than Chanel, I met Bernard Arnault and he offered me a deal for the Kanye West line, and three months later he went through with the deal. So my second collection didn’t have a producer.”

At this time, Arnault has not addressed West’s allegations.
