Cruel Lesson: What happens when you mess with Rihanna

Teyana Taylor has received a cruel lesson in PR! The G.O.O.D music songstress has been officially dropped from Adidas following her online spat with Rihanna. Although Rihanna started the internet battle, Teyana took it a step too far when she mocked Rihanna’s domestic violence case with Chris Brown. Rih Rih’s ever loyal navy took to change.org to get Teyana dropped from Reebok and Adidas and looks like it worked. Well, at Adidas at least! Whilst Rihanna mocked her ex friends net worth, Teyana poked fun at Rihanna’s bruised face following Chris Browns assault.

Teyana Taylor’s publicist denied that she had been dropped, stating that her new sneaker with the company was ‘on hold’ Unfortunately, the team over at Madamnoire.com uncovered the truth. They reached out to Adidas who confirmed that they have parted ways with this singer! Despite Teyana producing an extremely successful first sneaker for them the company stated that…

“We have ended our relationship  with Teyana Taylor and do not have any upcoming product launches with her.”

Madamenoire asked Adidas whether the decision was based on Teyana’s altercation with Rihanna and if the petition calling for Adidas and Reebok to eliminate the endorsement factored into the decision at all. Adidas responded…

“All I can say is that adidas partners with athletes and artists who blend well with our brand values.  We evaluate our relationships with partners based on the values we hold at adidas and we don’t condone violence of any kind.”
