Kanye West’s apparel brand, Yeezy, is suing former summer intern Ryan Inwards for allegedly breaching a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) by taking to Instagram with confidential photos.
According to the NDA, Inwards signed an agreement that contained a $500,000 liquidated damages provision. The provisions says that any contractual breaches would result in that amount in damages.

The NDA prohibited interns from disclosing or disseminating confidential information on social media — and Yeezy says that he shared images on Instagram and hasn’t taken them down despite being sent multiple cease and desist letters.
Yeezy is suing Inwards for breach of contract and conversion, and is seeking the $500,000 in liquidated damages plus punitive damages because the company believes he’s acting maliciously. It’s also seeking an injunction mandating that he turn over the images and be banned from similar posts in the future, per The Hollywood Reporter.
We doubt the intern has that kind of money sitting in the bank to give Yeezy. Is the brand taking things too far or nah?
