Teyana was supposed to release an Adidas sneaker for Black Friday, and rumors started swirling that she’d been dropped when the shoe never surfaced. A rep for Teyana originally denied that the partnership was over (“Teyana has not been dropped, the sneaker is on hold, no other comments or statement is ready to be issued at this time.”), but Adidas has since confirmed that it is over. Read the statement below.
In an interview with Madam Noire, a rep for Adidas said,
“We have ended our relationship with Teyana Taylor and do not have any upcoming product launches with her. All I can say is that Adidas partner with athletes and artists who blend well with our brand values. We evaluate our relationships with partners based on the values we hold at Adidas and we don’t condone violence of any kind.”
