West hired powerful talent manager-turned-designer to the stars Gallin to decorate their Calabasas, Calif., home and “spent nearly all of his money” on furniture — including a one-off $30,000 couch — and then decided he hated it all.
A source told us, “Kanye walked into the house, decided he hated all the furniture brought in by Gallin, and demanded it be returned to the vendors. But they refused to take it back, so he took it all out and threw it into storage. He then spent a fortune on a new set of furniture.”
West has since hired Axel Vervoordt to spruce up their home, but Kardashian is growing impatient. “Kanye spends so much money and he’s holding everything up. The house still isn’t ready. Kim just wants to be settled at home, especially after everything that happened in Paris,” the source added.
And his abrasive manner isn’t winning him friends in the fashion world. Despite constantly trying to infiltrate fashion circles, insiders tell Page Six he is persona non grata.
“He’s a wreck! Everyone in the fashion business thinks he’s crazy. He’ll start taking advice from someone successful, stop listening 15 minutes later, and then move on to someone else. He constantly fights with everyone. He’s even fighting with Adidas,” an insider told us.
A source close to the rapper insists he’s adored by the trendsetters who matter. “To say the fashion industry hates him is totally false. His friends in fashion include the most influential powerful people in the business. Anna [Wintour], Carine [Roitfeld], Demna [Gvasalia], Riccardo [Tisci], Balmain, on and on and on. Bernard Arnault. A handful of bitter fashion writers try to take him down all the time,” West’s pal told us.
Of his drama at home, the pal added, “I was just with them in LA, and vibes were at an all-time [high] .?.?. everyone came out to the shows, and Kim was in great spirits.”
