Professor Green's Puma clothing line has been axed.
The 'Remedy' rapper, who has launched two seasons of clothing and accessories with the sportswear brand, has been left disappointed after they pulled the plug on his Honey Badger range for 2014 last month.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Pro had been chatting about a new range for a while, but after a few months of delays, it was finally taken off the table.
"It's frustrating for everybody, because there had been a lot of time invested in it, but now just isn't the right time."
The 30-year-old star was dealt the blow during a difficult time after being arrested on suspicion of drink driving in November last year, before being re-arrested and bailed for attempting to pervert the course of justice.
A Puma spokeswoman said: "I can confirm that Puma and Professor Green haven't extended the agreement to produce a new collection for 2014.
"While there will be no specific collection this year, despite former plans, but that isn't to say the relationship is truly over.
"Both sides would like to work together in the future."
Last year the star said he was proud of the collaboration after the small capsule grew into a full range and included satin bomber jackets and leopard print t-shirts for both men and women.
He said: "What's cool about the honey badger is a lot of people don't know quite what it is. It's not got 'Professor Green and Puma' across the chest. That's why honey badger came into things. It had to have an identity."
