Forget about Chris Brown disses and awkward Marilyn Manson cameos — Kanye West is embroiled in yet another blazing-hot controversy after being accused of ripping off the logo of his “Donda” album merch.

The 44-year-old allegedly stole the logo design from the black-owned business, according to Randy Dawkins, creative director of the fashion line Infinity G8ds.

Dawkins told the Daily Beast that West’s merch features a direct copy of the design featured on his brand’s T-shirts and hoodies.

“It’s disappointing,” Dawkins told the outlet. “We don’t have any bad vibes or bad feelings toward him, we actually like the dude. But how he handled business? Well, that’s another story.”

The $100 T-shirts in question were sold at West’s Aug. 5 “Donda” album listening party at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz stadium.

The tees were beige in color and featured a long black Star of David with a thin cross etched in the middle. Underneath the the design read the record’s name as well as the event date.

Ye’s personal executive chef Willie Wallace first contacted Infinity G8ds in late July, Dawkins claimed. The two men were friends, he alleged, who crossed paths through another one of the “Jesus Walks” rapper’s chefs, Travis Reece.
