Kanye West Was Right Adidas Freezing $75M Of His Yeezy Funds. Kanye West has proven to be right regarding Adidas blocking his access to $75 million of proceeds from his Yeezy profits.  According to unsealed court documents obtained by Law360, unbeknownst to Yeezy, Adidas was given legal permission to freeze nearly $100 million in funds in November 2022 because of the Chicago rapper’s antisemitic remarks. 

Kanye West did not get the opportunity to fight back against the legal order because it was an ex parte decision, meaning it was granted without waiting for a response from the other side. Earlier this week, Adidas requested a New York federal court to uphold the $75 million freeze on Ye’s accounts as they seek out arbitration regarding the termination of their lucrative partnership.  The judge denied their request.   Kanye revealed in an interview with celebrity gossip outlet X17 last November that he had a hunch about Adidas freezing his bank account and he was right.

4 Things I Learned

After My Last

Dinner Date…

by Lisa Laird

Recently, I went out to dinner with a new guy I met at a workshop.  I must admit,  I felt a bit intimidated because he seemed so cosmopolitan and well-traveled.  We went to a French restaurant, and when the waiter put the menu in my hand, I felt even more intimidated, because I couldn’t understand some of the languages on the menu, and he seemed to be well-versed.   MORE

A Lover Do This?

by Sierra Silverspoon

Recently, while on a weekend retreat with over 40 men and women, we got into a discussion about our romantic pasts, and I was surprised to learn that many in the group had never experienced certain romantic episodes that to some seem basic.  One guy in the group stated he had never received flowers from a woman or walked on the beach with one, though he had traveled all over the world.  What about you?  Take a look at your romance experience.  Has it been rewarding, lackluster, or regrettable?    MORE


The Secret To

Being Easy To Love

by Bonita Bennett

Everyone wants to be loved.  However, I often hear from men and women who feel unloved and friendless but feel it’s unfair for those around them to make a decision about them without getting to know them.  To be judged by an initial impression may not be fair, but in many instances, it is the only opportunity you’ll get to put your best foot forward.  Example:  Can you be perceived as friendly if you never smile or extend a warm greeting?   MORE

Though I pretended not to care, my head was pounding with anger.     MORE

In An Instant!

by Alisa Murray

I was walking down the corridor of the hospital where I worked when I spotted a tall, handsome policeman talking to a fellow nurse whom I disliked intensely.  I felt immediate envy as they stood laughing at what appeared to be a private joke.  When I passed them, he stopped in the middle of a sentence and spoke to me with an admiring look.  I mumbled a faint greeting, without looking at him, because I was certain he was only being polite.    MORE

Those Bizarre Encounters

by Cheryl Lakes

Whenever we meet someone, who appears to have potential, we are generally excited about all the many possibilities.  We acquire a new pep in our step and a lilt in our spirits because we’re hoping that against all odds, this one is the one.  Unfortunately, sometimes we get carried away with our feelings and emotions before we have good reason to do so, and end up immersed on a journey with someone who turns out to be the opposite of what we thought.  For example…   MORE
