Needless to say, he wasn’t pleased with their work!

Kanye West fired all of his staffers after his disastrous Yeezy fashion show flop during New York Fashion Week in September, Page Six reports. Models were fainting and many could barely walk in his ill-fitting shoes, and that sent Ye right over the edge!

“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. He had a nervous breakdown after the show, and that’s what triggered it all,” a source told the outlet.

Even though the reviews were terrible, sources close to the rapper claim that while he was bummed about the outcome, he never flew off the handle.

“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,” another source countered.

He’s known to be a perfectionist, so this sounds about right!
