German fashion designer Philipp Plein, known for his blingy and skull designs, invites the who's-who of the fashion industry for his show that was supposed to be by the pool. There was a dinner supposed to be held along with the show, for guests on February 11. A list of things including a three-course-meal and a performance by American rapper Kanye West, were promised to the guests in attendance. 

According to TMZ, for the booking of West, an advance of $900,000 had even been sent. Except, that this was not sent to West at all. Apparently, one of West's associates had been negotiating with Plein's team for the performance, without the knowledge of West and it reached such an extent that the associate even forged West's signature on an official document and kept the advance to himself! 


West's wife, Kim Kardashian tweeted on Wednesday that her husband would not be performing at any fashion show this season and this was just a rumour. This probably got Plein's crew concerned! 

TMZ reports that the person who forged West's signature was a former friend and associate of G.O.O.D Music - the record label founded by West himself back in 2014. 

Neither of the parties have commented on the matter yet, but speculations are that Plein will take legal action against the man behind the forgery.

This will be Plein's first show in 11 years and he is known for having high-profile celebrities perform at his shows. In the past, Busta Rhymes, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Azealia Banks and more have put up excellent performances for him.
