Kanye West sues Walmart for selling Yeezy Foam Runner shoe rip-off

KANYE West is suing Walmart for selling low budget rip-offs of his Yeezy Foam Runner.

The 44-year-old rapper claims the retail giant has copied his designs to the detriment of his fashion empire and is now seeking damages.

Court documents state an "unauthorized exact copy" was made of the $75 shoe by Walmart - only to be sold at $25, a fraction of the intended price.

The papers obtained by TMZ also detail how the Foam Runner was introduced in 2019, before making its official debut in 2020, selling out straight away.

With the copycat shoes allegedly being sold in Walmart's online shop, papers state a request to take down the footwear was ignored.

Walmart has since responded to the claim.

A company spokesperson said: "The product referenced in the complaint is not sold by Walmart, but rather by third party Marketplace sellers.

"We take allegations like this seriously and are reviewing the claim.

"We will respond in court as appropriate after we have been served with the complaint."

And it's not the only legal problems the Yeezy boss has had to deal with recently.

Last week, the father-of-four was been accused of trying to "sabotage" a court deposition over his Sunday Service gigs.

The music maker reportedly wore a balaclava printed with images of Jesus, called a lawyer "f**king stupid" and stormed out during a virtual hearing with the company MyChannel Inc.

The video and e-commerce company are suing Kanye for $20million, accusing him of "stealing" their technology to promote his Sunday Service gigs despite allegedly promising to invest millions in the firm.

Kanye was brought into court via an emergency motion filed by MyChannel's lawyers, according to sealed court documents obtained by

The music mogul reportedly wore a "full-face hood and head covering adorned with Jesus Christ’s image which obscured his face and muffled his voice" during the deposition.

The Gold Digger hitmaker refused to remove the mask and allegedly called MyChannel's attorney Michael Popok "boy" at least a dozen times and asked if he was "f**king stupid" while refusing to answer his questions.

Although meanwhile Kanye's love life is looking up as he's started dating Russian model Irina Shayk amidst his divorce from Kim Kardashian.

Earlier this month, the rapper was pictured beaming with 35-year-old after whisking her away for a "romantic getaway" in Provence, south of France, for his 44th birthday.

The hot new couple were spotted arriving on a private jet back to New Jersey following the trip.

Kim, 40, who shares children North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two, with the superstar, officially filed for divorce in February after seven years of marriage

Irina shares a daughter, Lea De Seine, four, with her ex Bradley Cooper, 49.
