The rapper, married to Reality celebrity Kim Kadashian, announced on his twitter account that he was $53 million( ksh 5.3 billion) in personal debt and asking for a bailout from Facebook CEO and Founder Mark Zuckerberg
According to a Hollywood Life source, the answer is simple: He hasn’t. The source told the news outlet that Kanye isn’t really broke, and he’s not struggling to pay his bills. Instead, the source said, West is simply doing everything he can to create a buzz around his most recent business endeavors.
“Kanye is not $53 million in debt. He has several businesses and investments, from his clothing line to restaurants to music worth millions. He is a master in marketing and is doing everything he can to generate interest in his album, Tidal and his clothing line,” the source told Hollywood Life.
Well Kanye is known for making headlines such as suggesting that he’s running for president in 2016 and making wild claims about being in debt.
According to the magazine, the Gold digger hit maker, is hogging the limelight to make millions and millions more from all this attention.
Within the past week, Kanye West released his Yeezy Season 3 clothing line and, at the same time, performed a new song from his most recent album, The Life of Pablo. That album was released Saturday.
Anyway it doesn’t matter much to Kanye’s wife-Kim Kadashian who is worth $ 88 million, equivalent to approximately 8 billion shillings.
