Kanye West Yeezy Strikes a Deal to Fall into the Gap
Kanye West’s Yeezy fashion label is coming to Gap.
The rapper and designer is teaming with The Gap on a new line of apparel for men, women and kids called Yeezy Gap. Products are expected to debut in stores and online next year, the company said in a statement.
The deal is a multiyear partnership, according to a Yeezy spokesperson. West has been traveling to Gap’s San Francisco headquarters from his ranch in Wyoming to work on the line, which is still in its design phase, the spokesperson said. The line won’t include footwear, a market in which Yeezy already collaborates with Adidas AG.
Gap shares jumped as much as 24% in New York trading on Friday — the most intraday in three months. The stock had fallen 43% this year through yesterday’s market close. (The Street)
Chrissy Teigen Shows Off the Results of Her Breast Implant Removal Surgery
Chrissy Teigen is opening up about having her breast implants removed earlier this month, and is showing off her new figure.
“I hate when people are like, ‘Everyone’s asking how I am,’ and it’s not true, but honestly a lot of people are asking,” Teigen said Thursday (June 25, 2020) in a video on her Instagram Story.
“I haven’t really talked about the surgery or how I’m recovering and I know I’ve been really quiet on social.”
“I’m honestly really enjoying the time with my kids,” she continued, while wrapped in only a sheet. “We’re having so much fun at the house and lots of tea parties and cupcake making and whatnot. I am good, I’m recovering so well and I feel like, I feel good. So don’t worry about me.”
She then dropped the sheet on one side, while preserving her modesty with one hand as she exclaimed, “And here’s my new boob! Yay!” (Page Six)

Trump Administration Asks Supreme Court to Invalidate Obamacare in the Middle of a Pandemic
In the midst of a global pandemic with the presidential election just months away, the Justice Department asked the Supreme Court on Thursday to invalidate the Affordable Care Act, the landmark health care law that enabled millions of Americans to get insurance coverage and that remains in effect despite the pending legal challenge.
In a late-night filing, Solicitor General Noel Francisco said that once the law’s individual coverage mandate and two key provisions are invalidated, “the remainder of the ACA should not be allowed to remain in effect.”
Shortly after the brief appeared on the court’s docket late Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement: “President Trump and the Republicans’ campaign to rip away the protections and benefits of the Affordable Care Act in the middle of the coronavirus crisis is an act of unfathomable cruelty.”
The case before the high court began with a lawsuit brought by 20 states, led by Texas, calling for the elimination of the ACA. It has been consolidated for argument with another case brought by 17 states, led by California, seeking to preserve the law. The court is likely to hear the case in the fall. (The New York Times)
