The fashion house reportedly advanced the money to Yusef-affiliated entities and featured West's name prominently on the event invitation before discovering Yusef failed to communicate any of this with Kanye. Apparently Philipp Plein booked an appearance from Kanye West for its NYFW show on February 11 (paying a cool three quarters of a million) only to find that it was all a scam.
Page Six reported on Friday that an associate and former friend of West's contacted Plein, who has a huge New York Fashion Week event planned for Monday, pretending to be the rapper's rep and negotiating for him to "perform" at the show. According to documents obtained by The Blast, frequent collaborator Malik Yusef was the one who made the deal.

In addition Don Mancini , the creator of the Child's Play franchise, had zero involvement in the new reboot. We'll find out if the new lineup can win over skeptics when the film hits theaters on June 21st, 2019.
Neither of the parties have commented on the matter yet, but speculations are that Plein will take legal action against the man behind the forgery. He says the Plein and himself agreed on a "t-shirt" shortly after recanting on their "concert" agreement.
The contract stipulated that Plein would pay $500,000 to the Donda Social Program Foundation, a charity Kanye used to have that was named after his late mother.
He also blasted Kanye for not coming to his aide, when he is so quick to defend his buddy, United States President, Donald Trump. Kanye's not performing at the show, and Plein is now out a pretty penny.
