Adidas Originals Says Goodbye to Teyana Taylor

2013 has been the year of pickups and drops when it comes to sneaker deals, and it looks like the latest to get dropped is rapper/singer/model/actress Teyana Taylor. Taylor debuted her first sneaker with adidas earlier this year the Harlem Good Luck Charm (GLC) that received major love from the sneaker community. Her luck changed when she engaged in a Twitter beef with Rhianna who posted a spoof making fun of Teyana Taylor. Some not so pleasant words and a missed Black Friday GLC release later and adidas hits us with this statement: 

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