Did Rihanna Get Teyana Taylor Fired From Adidas?
If you’re a sneaker head, you know Kanye West isn’t the only musician in bed with Adidas.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Teyana Taylor would be dropping the followup to her Harlem GLC sneaker on Black Friday, but the busiest shopping day of the year came and went without the shoe hitting shelves. This led some to believe that her online Twitter war with Rihanna may have caused her to lose her sneaker deal. That speculation was only fueled when Teyana tweeted:
“One door closed … so God opened up three more for me. #Blessed #AlwaysGood #AlwayHaveFaith.”
Following her digital spat with Rihanna that included her posting a picture of the Barbadian beauty’s bruised and battered face following a 2009 altercation with Chris Brown, an online petition was launched to have Teyana dropped by Adidas for promoting domestic violence.
Still, according to a rep for the singer, the Harlem artist has not been dropped by the shoe giant. “Teyana has not been dropped, the sneaker is on hold, no other comments or statement is ready to be issued at this time.”
