Kanye West is surely one of the most controversial individuals. We are no strangers to his eccentric nature, incredibly successful career, and also the controversies that surround him. 2022 was perhaps one of the most life-changing years for the rapper. Apart from the legal problems he faced, the year saw a massive decline in his net worth as his financial conditions took a turn for the worse. However, a year later, things seem to be settling down for the Flashing Lights hitmaker. After staying out of the limelight for months now, Ye managed to save himself from a major legal problem.

Amidst the plethora of legal problems that followed Ye in the past few months, one was from a former Yeezy employee. A few months ago, Dora Szilagyi, a colleague of West in Yeezy, sued the rapper for default payments of a whopping $275 k. Szilagyi revealed that the company hired her as the Director of Product innovation back in June 2021. She apparently left her job at Adidas to join hands with West at Yeezy.

However, as per reports by RadarOnline, Szilagyi has decided that she will be dismissing her entire suit against the rapper. The reports further suggest that she will not be able to refile the case in the near future.

The Heartless singer fired the designer without making any payment that she was promised. Szilagyi stated that Ye owed her the 6 figure if she was fired without cause any time after September 2021. However, later on, Ye fired the employee in December 2021.
