Kanye West allegedly threatened to shave Donda Academy students’ heads, lock them in cages


Kanye West allegedly threatened to shave the heads of Donda Academy students and even lock them in cages, a new lawsuit claims.

In legal documents obtained by Page Six on Tuesday, former Yeezy employee Trevor Phillips claimed he suffered “severe discrimination, harassment, and retaliation” from West while working for his design company. However, his duties eventually expanded into doing work for his now-shuttered school.

Phillips further claimed that West, 46, would “proudly” tout his antisemitic conspiracies in front of students and even told two children that he “wanted to shave their heads” and “intended to put a jail at the school,” the documents state.

Phillips also alleged that, while at dinner with West at Nobu Malibu in December 2022, the All of the Lights rapper lambasted Jewish people again and described them as “miserly” and went so far as to praise Adolf Hitler as “an innovator”. He also allegedly claimed the Holocaust was “fake”.

The former employee also claimed the Flashing Lights performer would engage in “incessant inappropriate conduct” and show off his “apparent arousal”.

“What was meant to be a meeting with his boss about Donda Academy, its curriculum and horticulture, ended up being antisemitic and bigoted soliloquy-topped off with sexual harassment,” the lawsuit states.

He also claimed that after the group’s sushi was delivered the fashion designer “began threatening the LGBTQ community”.

“‘Yeah I’m going for the gays! FIRST the Jews, THEN the gays!’” Phillips purports West said, further alleging that Bill Gates “controls” homosexuals.

A black man, Phillips also alleged that West “treated black employees palpably worse than white employees” and claimed he “commanded” a black campus security guard to “shave his dreads” or be fired; the guard ultimately resigned from his role.

Phillips alleged West fired him in May 2023 during one of his Sunday Services.

“By filing this lawsuit, we hope our injured clients’ rights are vindicated, and that the famous artist Mr. West understands that his messages – which we alleged preach discrimination, antisemitism and Hitler-love – have no place in the world,” Carney R. Shegerian, Phillips’ lawyer, tells Page Six in a statement.

Phillips is suing West for discrimination, harassment, a hostile work environment and more. He seeks to be awarded general and special damages exceeding $US35,000, attorneys’ fees and wants an injunction preventing West from opening any type of school for kids under 18 in California.

Reps for West didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
