While the embattled Yeezy designer’s own children — North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3 — did not attend his academy, West has fought ex-wife Kim Kardashian vigorously to get them to enroll.

The “Heartless” singer once proposed his “idea” that their four kids change their schedule to three days at their current private school and two days at Donda Academy.

Although it now won’t be possible for that plan to go into effect this year, the school’s email said it planned to “begin afresh in September of 2023.”

“Our leadership team will be working diligently to assist all families during this transition, ensuring that every scholar has what they need to succeed in their next community in a prompt and gracious manner,” Angell’s email concluded.

West’s business partnerships have been dissolving at a rapid pace in light of his offensive comments, with Adidas, Gap and Balenciaga all cutting ties with the artist.

Adidas’ pullout proved most financially harmful for West, 45, as it immediately knocked the “Flashing Lights” rapper off of the billionaire list.
