Super star and rapper Kanye West stunned fans on Saturday night after declaring he was $53million in debt.
Kanye’s surprising claim about his finances comes after he has been on a massive social media offensive this week, hitting out at Taylor Swift, defending his new clothing collection. The father-of-two, who is known for his extravagant lifestyle with wife Kim Kardashian, tweeted: ‘I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…’
Meanwhile, it’s not the first time Kanye has talked about how much money he owes.
Last year he admitted he went $16million into debt trying to get his Yeezy clothing line off the ground. ‘I was trying to play a sport that’s a billionaire sport. It’s not a millionaire sport and I’m proud of the debt. I don’t care about somebody’s Ghost (Phantom) or somebody’s house. I care about my vision’ he told BET.
Viewers of Keeping Up With The Kardashians know that Kanye and Kim have spent years living at her mother Kris Jenner’s home while they waited for their $20million Bel Air mansion to be completed.
Kanye’s perfectionism and demands no doubt would have helped the normal building costs spiral upward.
