Pharrell Is Now The Co-Owner Of G-Star Clothing

Pharrell x G Star

Not too long after buying back his share in the fashion companies he’d created (then sold,) Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream, Pharrell has made another huge business venture.

Taking to Twitter earlier this morning, the iconic producer revealed that he’s now the co-owner of popular denim company, G-Star. The two entities had collaborated over the last few years, transforming recycled ocean plastic into denim, and in 2016, decided to make their partnership official.

“G-Star is an independently minded and forward thinking company,” Pharrell said in a statement. “I believe they will be the definitive jeans brand of the 21st century. I am looking forward to be part of that mission and to co-create G-Star’s future.”

ifwt_Lil-Wayne-on-ESPN_LifeIsTremendez

Alright Weezy, WHO DO WE NEED TO FIRE IN YOUR ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT? We know you have money, we know you don’t handle your money (as a majority of celebrities do not,) so obviously someone on your team is not taking care of business, and they have to go!

Bringing his grand total to $12.9 million dollars, Lil Wayne has been hit with yet another lien for $868,079.89 in taxes for the year 2014. The Young Money rapper has an estimated networth of $150 million, so this would be a drop in the bucket – if he didn’t owe $5,843,952 for 2011 and $6,311,132 for 2012. Thus far, he’s only paid $175,719 of that debt, and he has a handful of other lawsuits on the table as well.

(Photo) Wu-Tang Clan Fan Sues Martin Shkreli And RZA For Art Work Sold With “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin”

Die hard Wu-Tang Clan fan Jason Koza has slammed Martin Shkreli and RZA with a lawsuit after his artwork landed in the $2 million one-of-a-kind album, “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.”

Koza claims he entered nine of his hand drawn portraits the Wu-Tang members to be posted on a site called Wu Disciples. He was delighted when Wu-Tang’s producer Cilvaringz contacted him back in 2014 to say he was working on the “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” record. Koza claims following that conversation he never heard from anyone in Wu-Tang’s camp again, but was disturbed to find out that the rare album included a leather-bound book with copies of his drawings.

Following the sale of the album, where Martin Shkreli picked it up for $2 million, three of his original drawings wound up in a January article of Vice. Koza feels like he’s been jerked around and now is looking for Shkreli, RZA and Cilvaringz to pay up.
