Beyoncé has pulled her Ivy Park line from Topshop after their leader Phillip Green has faced several controversial allegations. Phillip Green has been accused of sexual harassment, racism, and bullying. Credible sources have claimed that Green has sexually harassed and racially abused his staff. He was also identified in an injunction in which he tried to stop the British Daily Telegram, a newspaper, from reporting on his misconduct.
Topshop initially owned fifty percent of Bey’s Ivy Park collection, which released back in 2016. Two years prior to this, Beyoncé helped Topshop open their largest store location in New York City. At the time, Beyonce stated of working with the company and Green:
“I could not think of a better partner as I continue to grow the Parkwood business, I have always loved Topshop for their fashion credentials and forward thinking.”
In light of the allegations, Queen Bey bought out Green’s shares of her company. Her strong moral conviction in this matter is admirable in a world where most celebrities let even the most serious misdeeds go unchecked and unacknowledged. A statement by a representative of Yoncé’s brand has stated that these discussions have been underway for about a year, and assures that all existing orders made to Topshop will be fulfilled.
