Kylie And Kendall Jenner Debunk Claims That They Failed To Pay Bangladesh Workers
In June, reports surfaced that the Kendall and Kylie clothing brand’s fashion conglomerate Global Brands Group was not paying workers based in Bangladesh.
The reports claimed that Global Brands Group, who the Jenner sisters have been adamant don’t own their fashion brand, despite GBG listing the range on their website up to June 23, did not pay garment suppliers for orders produced in February and March.
Kylie, whose billionaire status has been challenged by Forbes magazine, and Kendall, who’s worth £36million, has slammed the claims according to a report by The Mirror.
Now, the Kendall and Kylie clothing brand has released an Instagram statement where they state that the brand has “no relationship” with Global Brands Group and blasted the claims that they “have neglected to pay factory workers” as “untrue”.
The post shared on the Kylie + Kendall clothing brand’s Instagram account on Thursday night read:
We would like to address the unfortunate and incorrect rumor that Global Brands Group owns the Kendall + Kylie brand and that we have neglected to pay factory workers in Bangladesh as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is untrue. The Kendall + Kylie brand is owned by 3072541 Canada Inc., not GBG. The brand has worked with CAA-GBG in the past in a sales and business development capacity only. But we do not currently have any relationship at all with GBG. We know these are trying times for the fashion industry and garment workers as a whole, and we continue to support all of our partners working in factories who produce our products. We manufacture in countries all over the world and have not received any concerns from the factories who produce our goods.
Shortly after claims surfaced in June, a representative for the clothing brand said:
The Kendall + Kylie brand is owned by Canada Inc. The brand does not produce in Bangladesh. So [these allegations are] not accurate.
