The reason Kim Kardashian still hasn’t divorced Kanye West (opinion)

Kanye West has been the most famous thing in Hollywood headlines the past 4 months that isn’t related to Covid-19. His antics are well-known and are numerous. For a quick reminder, check out the article below:

List of the most egregious things Kanye West has said and done-Part 2

The father of 4 was diagnosed with bipolar disorder a few years and while that might be a mitigating factor in how erratic his behaviour can be, there are still some like his wife who believes he should allow for more medical attention from his doctors, something that the rapper has been averse to do.

And let’s not forget that Kim has been the most affected as she has been the recipient of a lot of his shenanigans during his many Twitter tirades.

Things got so bad that there were rumours swirling in the media that Kim was contemplating divorce the rapper and producer.

But that all seems to have changed as Kanye was seen making amends with her by publicly apologising to his wife and then visiting a hospital for diagnosis and was found to be o.k.

That wasn’t all as the two were recently spotted at his Wyoming ranch having a heart to heart trying to work things out. Despite his apology, reports indicate that his wife wants him to seek professional help that can deal with his issue once and for all.

Kanye’s psychological issues first came into the public domain when he was hospitalised in 2016 with hallucinations and paranoia.

Analysis

Hollywood marriages have a higher than normal failure rate among the American populace. Most celebs in America are either on their 2nd or 3rd marriages and it is something that has become par for the course and isn’t frowned upon anymore.

A post shared by Kanye West (@kanyewestt_official) on

The things Kim has gone through the past few years with her man would respond in either of 3 ways;

-Stay with him and ask him to get treatment

-Have her break down.

-Move on and divorce her husband.

Kim Kardashian has chosen the first and has been resolute even if there have been cracks about her contemplating moving on from her fashion designer husband.

And why is she still with him? My theory? Money. Kanye is still an appreciating asset. His deal with Adidas for Yeezus has already made him a dollar billionaire and will keep him in the cheddar for the foreseeable future.

California where the couple have stayed for most of their marriage is a no-fault divorce state. If Kim were to ever divorce him, she would at least take half of his fortune. The man is worth at least 1.3 billion dollars at the moment while she is worth at least 900 million dollars.

Even if she doesn’t need his money, why would a smart woman like Kim leave a potential gravy train like Kanye while his worth hasn’t even reached its zenith? Some even value his Yeezy brand at 3 billion dollars with the rapper himself touting it at the 5 billion mark.

Either way, the brand will keep on growing as there is a hunger for it, with the rapper even signing a 10-year deal in 2020 with clothes store, Gap.

While my reasoning might be cynical, prior celeb relationships have shown me that most marriages are kept together, not because of the love but the convenience. Once Kanye’s is done, he most likely will be done with Kim. But what do I know?

List of the most egregious things Kanye West has said and done-Part 2

Kanye West is in the news again for another controversy. The father of 4 castigated fellow musicians on Twitter airing some of his grievances which included not releasing more music.

The rapper went on to demand an apology from rappers J. Cole and Drake while referring to himself as Nat Turner, a black man famously known as a slave rebellion leader back in the 1830s.

The new tweets might be shocking to some but it continues a controversial character trait he has since became well-known for.

The rapper has had so many controversies over the years that I have compiled two lists of them. Part one is below:

List of Kanye West’s most controversial moments ever! Part 1

 

This is part two:

Kanye puts on a MAGA Hat-April 2018

The music producer etched his support for Trump more forcefully in 2018 when he was spotted wearing a Make America Great Again hat in April 2018.

That wasn’t all, Kanye who was able to get the hat signed by the president himself tweeted that Trump was his “brother”.

His support for the Republican president was the last straw for some who couldn’t reconcile his criticism for George Bush during his presidency(who was a Republican) while supporting Trump.

 

Kanye claims that slavery was a “Choice”-May 2018

Another low point for the controversial entrepreneur was his claim that slavery was a choice for black people. Mr. West made this claim in the offices of popular tabloid, TMZ

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years? That sounds like a choice. You were there for 400 years, and it is all of y’all?”

Kanye defends R Kelly-January 2019

As if defending Bill Cosby wasn’t enough, Kanye went all in again to defend his fellow musician, R Kelly. This happened after the condemnation the R and B crooner had received following the release of the documentary, Surviving R Kelly.

Yeezy alleged that fans should continue to listen to his music and that we should separate the art from the artist. His wife Kim Kardashian promptly defended him saying that his words were taken out of context.

Kanye announces that he will run for the presidency-July 2020

Maybe the second time’s the charm for the musician? The rapper who had already made a prior declaration like this in the run up to the 2016 elections dropped the bombshell on July 4th.

Kanye criticizes Harriet Tubman-July 2020

As if his claim that “slavery was a choice” wasn’t enough, the born-again musician went on a rant about the prestigious historical figure, Harriet Tubman.

Harriet, was an African American woman who escaped slavery and helped fellow black men and women escape the clutches of slavery.

He went on to say that Kim had wanted to abort North West when she was pregnant with her. He also claimed that the matriarch of the family, Kris Jenner would never force North’s career choices as she did to Kim – AKA her Playboy shoot.

List of Kanye West’s most controversial moments ever! Part 1

Born again US rapper Kanye West is once again in the news after his controversial statements regarding fellow musicians and himself. This past Monday September 15, the rapper took to Twitter to air some of his grievances which included not releasing more music.

“I need to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony, I’m not gonna watch my people be enslaved. I’m putting my life on the line for my people. The music industry and the NBA are modern-day slave ships. I’m the new Moses,” he wrote.

The rapper went on to demand an apology from rappers J. Cole and Drake while referring to himself as Nat Turner, a black man famously known as a slave rebellion leader back in the 1830s.

“I need a public apology from J Cole and Drake to start with immediately, I’m Nat Turner, I’m fighting for us,” he said.
Kanye also labeled himself the second richest black man in America and revealed he was waiting to meet Shawn Carter – government name for Jay Z, before apologising for writing his name as Sean.

This isn’t the first time in his career or this year (!) that the music producer has done something that has gotten the whole world in an uproar.

The instances are numerous (in fact enough for two lists). Let’s begin;

Mr. West’s rant about President Bush-September 2005

The business-man shocked many when he went off-script during a live TV fundraiser for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The rapper accused the then US president, George Bush of not caring for black people, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” The show’s producer then cut him off immediately.

Comparing himself to Jesus-February 2006

In a controversial photo in which he posed for Rolling Stones, the rapper posed with a  crown of thorns and fake blood, claiming that he can make a direct comparison between himself and Jesus.

His reason for such a claim was that he had to “fight for recognition” and “suffer for his success”.

Kanye complains bitterly about losing the VMAs-October 2007

The rapper was aghast that he lost all five of the awards he was nominated for and that he hadn’t been asked to play on the main stage like Justin Timberlake or Britney Spears.

The rapper then threw a fit backstage and threatened to never attend the MTV VMAs ever again.

Kanye verbally attacks a fan on a wheelchair-September 2014

The musician told fans at a concert in Sydney to get on their feet expecting everyone to do it – including a person in a wheelchair who couldn’t do it.

That act didn’t thrill the singer who then said that he couldn’t sing until everyone stood up. That prompted the crowd to start booing him and he backtracked saying that it was okay that the fan wasn’t standing up.

As if he had forgotten the type of backlash he got after attacking Taylor Swift in 2007, the rapper released his song Famous, where he called her a “b***h”.

Kanye declares support for Trump, and attacks Jay Z and Beyonce-November 2016

‘Come and get me’ Kanye West tells Sony/Univeral he won’t release anymore music

Kanye West has told Sony and Univeral that he won’t release anymore music with them until his contract is done.

The rapper took to Twitter on Monday night (Sept. 14) to share a string of tweets, beginning by announcing he’s “not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal.”

“On God … in Jesus name … come and get me,” he continued.

In January 2019, West sued song publisher EMI, that has the rights to his songs also also filed to sue Roc-a-Fella Records, UMG Recordings, Def Jam and Bravado International Group.

EMI retaliated and sued Kanye two months later for reneging on his contract with them.  In January 2020, a settlement between West and EMI was reached.

I’m not putting no more music out till I’m done with my contract with Sony and Universal … On God … in Jesus name … come and get me ⛷

Ye continued his act of defiance against labels and publishing companies. “I’m not industry bro … I don’t care… I’m in service to Christ … we need world healing … I miss my brothers… I refuse to argue with black men on labels we don’t own… even twitter,” Kanye said, before adding, “I have the utmost respect for all brothers … we need to link and respect each other… no more dissing each other on labels we don’t own.”

“Let’s stop killing each other … let’s show God that we are Gods people … my ego gets the best of me too,” he shared. “God doesn’t measure us by money in his kingdom … let’s love each other… I love my brothers and I miss my friends … real talk.”

Kim Kardashian spotted crying while meeting Kanye West at his farm (photos)

Kanye West has dominated Hollywood headlines the past month with his antics. At this point, no one can accuse him of chasing publicity as many know the father of 4 has a mental issue called bipolar disorder.

But while we can empathise with his condition, his tirades have repercussions and some of the people to suffer are those closest to him.

One of the most affected of course is his wife, Kim Kardashian. The Hollywood socialite has been the recipient of some of Kanye’s most hurtful sentiments during his many Twitter tirades.

But after Kanye’s typhoons normally come the calm. This past week the star has been making amends-He started by publicly apologising to his wife and then visited a hospital for diagnosis and was found to be o.k.

And it seems he isn’t done as Kanye and Kim were recently spotted at his Wyoming ranch having a heart to heart trying to work things out.

The two were spotted in the car while at the ranch having an emotional conversation. From the photos, one can see Kim breaking down while speaking to the rapper.

 

After their emotional meeting, Kim looked downcast as she was spotted touching down in Los Angeles on Tuesday. A source told People magazine that she had travelled to see the star because she was tired of being ignored;

“She is very emotional about everything, and also exhausted. She feels very hurt by Kanye. She has tried to reach him multiple times and he just ignores her. She decided to fly to Cody to speak with him in person. She doesn’t want to be ignored anymore.”

Despite his apology, reports indicate that his wife wants him to seek professional help that can deal with his issue once and for all.

Kanye’s psychological issues first came into the public domain when he was hospitalised in 2016 with hallucinations and paranoia.

West was not actually taken to the hospital involuntarily; he was persuaded to do so by authorities. While the episode was first described as one of “temporary psychosis” caused by dehydration and sleep deprivation, he was reportedly paranoid and depressed throughout the hospitalisation, but remains formally undiagnosed.

Kanye West visits hospitals after chastisising wife and mom-in-law

Kanye West has had a month of June and July that will live in infamy for the many crazy (might be true) pronouncements that he made. The rapper started out by claiming that he would be contending for the American presidency in 2022.

That wasn’t even the worst of it, the rapper started attacking his own wife and her mom-in-law in a string of tweets that went viral.

The rapper apparently visited a hospital for anxiety but decided against staying when he noticed how many people were there.

This is according to a source who spoke to TMZ.  He then arranged to have an ambulance come to his ranch, where EMTs reportedly checked his vitals, including heart rate and blood pressure, before determining he was not in any danger.

Kanye is no stranger to visiting hospitals as he was once hospitalised in 2016 after suffering a mental break-down.

The medics left shortly after with Mr. West being seeing riding an ATV around the property shortly after. This comes after the rapper had issued an apology to his wife on Saturday;

“I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me.to [sic] Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me,” West, 43, wrote.

Although West did not specify what “private matter” he was referring to, it might be related to his admission during a South Carolina campaign rally last weekend that the couple considered abortion when they were expecting their first child, daughter North, 7.

Reports indicated earlier in the week that Kardashian, 39, was “furious” over the abortion claims but kept it to herself.

He then claimed in a now-deleted tweet that he’s been “trying” to divorce Kardashian, 39, ever since she attended a prison reform event also attended by rapper Meek Mill.

Kanye West apologises to Kim Kardashian after Justin Bieber visits him

Kanye West has been on a bender the last couple of weeks. The rapper, producer, fashion mogul and provocateur went on a rampage where he spoke about several incendiary issues.

While most of his views were controversial what really got people talking was his attack on his wife Kim and his own mother-in-law.

The 43-year-old rapper has taken to his Twitter account to say sorry to his wife, revealing he regretted “going public with something that was a private matter”.

The message was posted shortly after Kanye had been visited on his Wyoming ranch by Justin Bieber. “I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter. I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim, I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me. (sic)”.

The rapper has made many accusations and so we still don’t know what he was specifically apologising for. One of the claims that he had made was that he wanted to divorce Kim after she met rapper Meek Mill at a hotel in 2018.

Kanye wrote: “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for ‘prison reform’ (sic). Meek is my man and was respectful. That’s my dog. Kim was out of line I’m worth 5 billion dollars and more than that through Christ But ya’ll ain’t listen to MJ and now ya’ll believe them??? (sic).”

In a subsequent tweet, Kanye also likened Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Kim Kardashian on her part hasn’t put a foot wrong in this whole saga and has been supportive of her husband despite the claims he has been making.

Kim Kardashian responds to Kanye West’s recent emotional outburst

Kim Kardashian West has publicly addressed her husband Kanye’s mental health issues following a series of erratic statements in recent days.

She wrote on Instagram: “As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder.

“Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.”

He is a “brilliant but complicated person” whose “words sometimes do not align with his intentions”, she said.

The rapper is one of America’s biggest music stars, and is currently attempting to run for US president. But his first campaign rally and a number of recent Twitter messages have sparked confusion and concern.

Kim and Kanye married in 2014 and have four children together.

In her message on Wednesday, the TV personality and model said she had not previously spoken publicly about how his mental health had affected the family “because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health”.

She wrote: “But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.

“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behaviour know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor.

“People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgemental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”

Kardashian West went on to say her husband was “subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions”, but asked for greater empathy and understanding.

“He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the painful loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bipolar disorder,” she added.

“Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions.

“Living with bipolar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some.

Kanye West with Kim Kardashian hugging

“That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.

“We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most.

“I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this.”

What is bipolar disorder?

There are different types of bipolar. Those with type I experience periods of manic highs and depressive lows. Those with type II experience severe depression and mild manic episodes – known as hypomania – that last for a shorter period of time. Those with cyclothymia experience less severe mood swings, but they can last longer.

During a manic episode, those with bipolar disorder can feel euphoric and have lots of energy, ambitious plans and ideas. But they can become aggressive, and experience symptoms of psychosis.

The exact cause of bipolar disorder is unknown. Some experts believe it can be developed as a result of severe emotional distress as a child, as well as genetic and chemical factors.

Kim Kardashian tried to bring a doctor to lock me – Kanye West says in bizarre rant

Kanye West has done a lot in life. The man started out as a music producer, progress to becoming a rapper, then went into the fashion industry where he made his billions.

And a constant part of the man has been his eccentric nature that has seen him blaze a trail in all of the career paths he has chosen.

Kanye is a genius but as they say he there is a thin line between genius and madness. The madness has been seen in the past when he was hospitalised but it seems that he might be in a similar position if recent events are something to go by.

The “Jesus Walks” rapper has been trending on Twitter this past week for his rant about his wife, Kim Kardashian.

Kanye West with Kim Kardashian

Kanye claimed that his wife and reality star, Kim Kardashian, was trying to use a doctor to lock him up. “Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor,” the rapper tweeted. “If I get locked up like Mandela, you’ll know why,” he wrote in now-deleted tweets.

He also had a few words for his mother-in-law and Kardashian’s momager, Kris Jenner, who he claimed was part of those trying to “lock him up.” In another tweet, he warned her not to play with him saying she and that ‘calmye’ (her boyfriend) were not allowed near his children.

Mr. West even added the popular movie “Get Out” was about him and the situation he is facing. In the movie, a black man becomes trapped in a suburban nightmare as his white girlfriend and her family try to exploit him. The rapper also spoke about his wife being in playboy.

“I put my life on my God that North’s mom would never photograph her doing playboy and that’s on God I’m at the ranch, come and get me,” Kanye wrote.

The rapper has since deleted the tweets but not before some screenshots were taken. Kanye also lamented on saving his child North saying Kim was trying to get him locked up for crying about it.

This comes a day after the rapper revealed at a rally that his dad wanted to abort him and there would have never been a Kanye.

This is the first time that Kanye has publicly gone against his own wife in the public sphere. How will this end up for one for one of the most popular couples in the world.

We considered aborting our first born – Kanye West

 

Kanye West told shocked fans at a rally that he and wife Kim Kardashian had planned to abort thier child, North West.

Earlier this month, Kanye West launched his presidential bid. And this past weekend in his first rally, Kanye West went on an emotional anti-abortion rant at his first political rally, where he claimed that he and Kim Kardashian considered aborting their daughter North.

He also claimed that his father had wanted his mother to have an abortion when she was pregnant with him.
‘I almost killed my daughter … So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world, even when I didn’t want to,” he added. “She stood up, and she protected that child.’

He described to the shocked crowd how divine intervention saved their child after Kim convinced him why they should keep the pregnancy rather than abort.

‘I was having the rapper’s lifestyle,” he said. “I was sitting up in Paris, and I had my leather pants on … and I had my laptop up and I got all of my creative ideas … And the screen went black and white and God said, ‘if you f**k with my vision I’m going to f**k with yours’. And I called my wife and she said, we’re gonna have this baby. I said we’re gonna have this child … So even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world when I didn’t want to. She stood up and she protected that child.

The couple now have four children together.

He then cried when talking about his father.

‘My mom saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me. My mom saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy,” he said, sobbing into his hand, before shouting: “I almost killed my daughter! I almost killed my daughter. My dad wanted to abort me. My mom saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West, because my dad was too busy,” West said.

Reactions from social media were swift with many saying Kanye needs psychological help.
@HoodSocialism..
Kanye’s mental health issues isn’t a “get out of criticism” pass. & It’s actually ableist af to attribute his bigotry (misogyny & anti-Blackness) with his mental health issues. Kanye having mental health issues didn’t make him a bigot, Kanye is a bigot by choice.

imagine your family letting you go on an entire campaign trail, while you mental health is clearly spiraling out of control instead of getting you proper help…..? sometimes i feel bad for Kanye

Competing with his wife? Billionaire Kanye West files trademark for Yeezy Beauty

Kanye West is the embodiment of the renaissance man, a modern-day polymath who can do all that he sets his mind on. The celebrity is now giving weight to the often-quoted phrase, “a man of many talents”

Kanye for those who might not know has had different “careers” that speak volumes as to the type of man that he is. The musician started out as a producer for Jay Z before venturing out into doing rapping to his own beats, something that is still a legendary feat to do. (Just ask Magix Enga to do so!?)

From there the singer branched out into the fashion world showcasing his eccentricities(something that is highly appreciated among fashionistas) and was an instant success.

But his masterstroke was his Yeezy shoe company that he started in partnership with Adidas that made him a dollar billionaire.

And it seems that his appetite for growth and expansion isn’t stopping there yet as the star has taken out another trademark. TMZ just reported that the designer and music mogul filed a trademark for Yeezy beauty.

Among the list of trademarked items are: “Cosmetics, facial makeup, concealers, blushers, facial powders, foundation makeup, eye makeup, eye pencils, eyebrow pencils, mascara, false eyelashes, face and body glitter, cosmetic pencils, lipstick, lip gloss, lip pencils, eye creams, facial cleansers, toners, facial exfoliants and scrubs, facial creams, facial moisturizers, and facial lotions.”

This isn’t West’s first beauty and cosmetics trademark. Back in 2017, he filed a similar trademark for Donda cosmetics, named after his mother who tragically passed away in 2007.

If West’s Yeezy beauty line does launch, it will join his wife’s KKW Beauty and KKW Fragrance brands, as well as Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin, as part of the family’s growing beauty business.

And this latest rumour about the couple will surely add to that content. Apparently a source told the British rag, The Sun that things between the couple aren’t in a good place.

A source told the tabloid that Kim Kardashian-West, is reportedly considering the idea of her and Kanye spending time apart in different houses until the lockdown is lifted.

The source added that things are tough between the couple because they never normally spend this much time together, but she doesn’t want a divorce.

Her reason according to the source was three-fold, Kim regards her marriage as a success since she is the only Kardashian sister who is still married, but also sees herself and Kanye as a ‘power couple’.

Kim also doesn’t want a divorce, especially because of the public backlash after her second divorce, which was unbearable.

However, the source alleged they have been staying at opposite ends of the house to keep things civil. This information is backed up by a report in the US Weekly, that revealed that the celebrity couple has been on different pages of late, despite the public display of affection.

“Sometimes they are on different pages. She gets up early and works out and he is up late. Kim is working out nonstop and doing her thing. Kanye is having a harder time because he does not have a regimented routine like Kim,” said the source.

Other sources close to the reality star have also said Kanye has been ‘focused on creating,’ leaving much of the parenting to Kim, something she isn’t used to as before the quarantine happened she would be hard at work outside their home.

But despite all the noise surrounding the couple, Kanye was recently named the richest artiste in the world, with the rapper and Yeezy sneaker founder making $170 million in the last financial year.

Kanye and Kim’s former bodyguard reveals ridiculous rules employees were expected to follow

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian aren’t the easiest of people to work with. This is according to a former bodyguard of their’s who wrote a tell-all about them.

Former NYPD officer, Steve Stanulis, reportedly fired in 2016, says he was given ridiculous rules to abide by while working for the Wests.

Steve joined up with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn of the Hollywood Raw podcast, noting that Kanye and his wife were his least favourite clients to ever work with.

He said that his first day was one of the worst as he didn’t know what floor he should press on a lift they were using, causing the singer to have a meltdown about it wondering why he did not call to ask, but Steve was not having it.

“I said ‘bro, we can do this one of three ways. One, you could tell me what button to press, and now I’ll know. Two, you could press the button, and I’ll see which one you pressing and then I’ll know. Or three, you can sit in here all day and tell me how important your time is and we are not going to go anywhere,'” Stanulis hit back.

Steve also explained that one of the rules the “Jesus Walks” singer instituted had made his work very difficult. The rule was that the guard should walk 10 steps behind him on city streets which made doing his job extremely difficult.

He also claimed the couple would notify paparazzi every time they leave the house. The claims have however not been confirmed by Kanye and remain to be the words of Steve Stanulis.

Recently, there were talks of a rift between the couple with claims they were staying on different sides of the mansion to avoid confronting each other.

Kanye West is a dollar billionaire! He is now worth more than Jay-Z and Kylie Jenner

Kanye West has come a long way since his emergence onto the hip hop scene in the mid-2000’s. The musician, who made his start as a producer at Roc Nation, has become one of the most influential rappers of all time with his experimental beats.

And the results have shown with his name becoming synonymous with success and controversy. But Kanye is a rolling stone who always has to be doing something and decided to take his talents to the fashion industry – which is another of his passions.

This is where he made his real money, with Forbes estimating that the rapper made 140 million dollars last year from sales of his Yeezy sneaker line.

While that is the estimate of what he made, the rapper wants people to know that he’s a billionaire despite Forbes not including him in its list of billionaires released last month.

This is a pet peeve for the rapper, something that has caused him to publicly challenge the magazine.  “You know what you’re doing,” he texted. “You’re toying with me and I’m not finna lye [sic] down and take it anymore in Jesus name.”

He also added that Forbes was “purposely a part of a group of media” that was trying to undervalue his self-made success because of his race.

His disagreement with the company has caused the rapper to publicly challenge the company. This past Thursday, West told his team to provide Forbes with “what we feel is an authentic numeric look into Kanye, Inc.”

The supply of documents to Forbes has made the company revalue the rapper’s worth. Based on documents, Forbes estimates the final revenue number for the shoes is closer to $1.3 billion.

Forbes formula

According to Forbes, a 10x multiple applied to West’s Yeezy cut of $140 million makes his stake worth about $1.4 billion. Forbes reduced the value by 10% as his asset is not very liquid reaching a final number of $1.26 billion.

In the end, Forbes estimates Kanye’s current net worth at $1.3 billion a number that Mr. West still disputes claiming that he’s worth triple that amount.
