Kanye West has gotten extreme backlash from fans online for cashing in on Christ with “Church Merch,” his new line of active sportswear — and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that momager Kris Jenner has pulled the plug!
On Tuesday, May 14, Kourtney Kardashian shared a photo on Instagram of herself, Kanye, sisters Kim and Khloe, as well as her kids Mason and Penelope all decked out in Yeezy’s religious-themed duds.
As Radar previously reported, Kanye has been selling Church Merch at his packed Sunday services, as well as at Coachella, where he had a booth set up to push the high-priced clothing.
T-shirts labeled “Trust God” were selling for $70 and sweatshirts that read “Holy Spirit” — such as the ones that Kanye and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan were sporting on Kourtney’s Instagram photo — were going for $165!
In addition, West was pushing socks at $50 for a two-pair set with the words “Jesus Walks” emblazoned across them.
Although the merchandise was for sale on West’s personal sites, including shop.kanyewest.com, the items are no longer available — and Radar has learned that 64-year-old momager Kris had everything to do with it!
“In the short time that Kanye had the items for sale on his personal site, they made a fortune and sold out,” a KUWTK insider told Radar.
“That isn’t to say that they may be back in the future, but Kris had a complete meltdown when people started accusing her and her kids of trying to make money off the Lord’s name.”
Kanye’s rep has not responded to Radar’s call for comment.
