Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West has ended his deal with sportswear brand Nike and tied up with rival company Adidas to "provide for his family".

The fiancé of socialite Kim Kardashian confirmed on Angie Martinez`s New York`s Hot 97 show that he was leaving Nike and setting up camp at Adidas, reports contactmusic.com.
