Ye's team is reportedly getting smaller after several Yeezy employees jumped ship.

According to a report TMZ published on Wednesday, May 15, Ye's chief of staff Milo Yiannopoulos confirmed that he submitted his letter of resignation earlier this month. In the letter, Yiannopoulos cited the controversial rapper's plans to launch a porn studio as the final straw after he led Ye's team over the past two years. He claimed his involvement in Ye's reported venture in adult entertainment would pose "an imminent danger to my life as a recovering addict and an unacceptable risk to my spiritual and physical health as a former homosexual."

The artist formerly known as Kanye West announced his Yeezy Porn brand last month on his social media accounts. Ye reportedly planned to build out a Yeezy Porn studio to make the raunchy content and tapped veteran adult filmmaker Mike Moz to lead the effort. However, a few days after he posted a teaser for the brand, Ye removed all traces of the announcement and hasn't commented on the status of the idea ever since. Milo may have put in his two weeks, but he's not totally against the idea of returning to his post in the future, especially if he completely ditches the porn venture.

Milo Yiannopoulos isn't the only employee to vacate their position at Ye's company. Sources tell TMZ that other vital employees within Yeezy's leadership team have also left the company over the past few weeks. There's no word on why the others dipped out. So far, Ye has not offered any explanations about his dwindling team.
