Kanye West’s Donda Academy Closes Effective Immediately

NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 3: Kanye West is seen exiting her hotel on September 3, 2016 in New York City.


Kanye West’s antisemitic meltdown continues to cost him.

This week, Ye’s Donda Academy announced that it is closing its doors effective immediately and will be closed for the remainder of the school year. West’s school is a private school that teaches students from pre-K through twelfth grade in Simi Valley, California.

Donda Academy cost $15,000 a year to attend and parents had to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).

The school’s uniforms were made by Balenciaga, which has ended its partnership with Kanye following the antisemitic tirades, and the basketball team was recently kicked out of a prestigious tournament.

“Our leadership team will be working diligently to assist all families during this transition, ensuring that every school has what they need to succeed in their next community in a prompt and gracious manner,” a statement read. “We intend to begin afresh in September of 2023, and we are confident that our scholars will continue to advance as the creative innovators, courageous influencers, and academic leaders of the next generation.”

Ye has also lost deals with Adidas, GAP, Vogue magazine, and many more while also getting dropped by the CAA agency.
