Kanye West sued by former Donda Academy employee claiming workplace abuses

A former employee of Kanye West sued the megastar, his Yeezy apparel brand and his Los Angeles-area school, claiming discrimination, a hostile work environment, whistleblower retaliation and unsafe working conditions, among other allegations.

Trevor Phillips, a former employee of Yeezy and Donda Academy, sued West in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday, claiming that “once Phillips pushed back against Kanye’s bigotry and instructions to violate the law … Kanye responded mercilessly, with incessant harassment, humiliation, and attempts to both mentally control, and destroy, Phillips. ... Kanye even threatened Phillips with physical violence.”


A representative for West — who now goes by Ye — could not be reached for comment.

Phillips claims in the suit that he began working for West’s Yeezy apparel brand in 2022, “overseeing projects related to growing cotton and other plants to use as materials in the Yeezy clothing lines,” with goals to “eventually create a self-sustainable Yeezy community.”

But soon after West’s now-infamous antisemitic tirades in October of that year, West’s business partners cut ties, and Phillips was brought on to work for Donda Academy. He said he overheard Kanye tell students at Donda Academy, which Phillips’ own child and younger brother attended, that “he wanted them to shave their heads and that he intended to put a jail at the school — and that they could be locked in cages.”

Phillips further claimed in the suit that Hitler was a frequent theme around the office, where he alleged West would say “HITLER WAS GREAT. Hitler was an innovator! He invented so many things. He’s the reason we have cars.” He also recalled West saying that “I am going for the g@ys! First the j3ws, then the g@ys. … g@y people are not true Christians. And g@y people are controlled by Bill Gates so that they don’t have children for population control.”

Phillips claims that West showed nud3 photos of his s3x partners to employees and ordered Phillips to do dangerous electrical work and other renovations at Donda Academy without any construction experience or permits. He said West fired and rehired him seemingly at random, and that after West confronted him about a garden project, West told him “I was going to punch you in the face” as he screamed at Phillips in front of dozens of staff members and schoolchildren.

Phillips is seeking damages in excess of $35,000, according to the complaint. “By filing this lawsuit, we hope our injured client’s rights are vindicated, and that the famous artist Mr. West understands that his messages - which we alleged preach discrimination, antisemitism and Hitler-love - have no place in the world,” said Phillips’ attorney, Carney R. Shegerian, in a statement to the Times.

The suit comes as West attempts to revive his music career after years of hate speech and incendiary behavior. His collaboration with Ty Dolla Sign, “Vultures 1,” topped the Billboard album and singles charts. West most recently performed at the Rolling Loud festival in Inglewood, where his set earned mixed reviews.
