This accusation was made by former supermodel Janice Dickinson in the podcast Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef, published on YouTube.
The 66-year-old celebrity said that West “hired” his long-time friend, 71-year-old Wintour, to help him promote himself in the fashion industry.
“Look at what Yeezy has done with its line of clothing and sneakers. Yeezy bought Anna Wintour for a million bucks to help him get back on his feet and give him wise advice about choosing a design and colors. It was just like that, ” Dickinson said.
The British edition of The Sun sent Kanye West and Anna Wintour a request for comment. At the same time, journalists mentioned that in 2016, the latter called the rapper’s clothing collection “migrant chic,” which the musician’s fans criticized her.
