Controversial far-right media figure Milo Yiannopoulos is parting ways with Kanye West, Yeezy, according to a TMZ report.

Yiannopoulos, 39, was serving as Yeezy Apparel’s Chief of Staff, but reportedly resigned after West – who changed his name to “Ye” – confirmed he would create an adult entertainment division of his brand.

In a statement obtained by TMZ, Yiannopoulos said, “I wish Ye every success in the future. I have some concerns about his new team, and hope he proceeds with caution”.

He also provided a photo of his alleged resignation letter in which he wrote he could not “be complicit in the production or dissemination of pornographic films and literature, for moral and religious reasons.”

The letter claims Yiannopoulos will deliver an “orderly handover” by the end of the month.
