Kanye West is officially a billionaire!
Kanye West is officially a billionaire, that’s according to Forbes.
But the rapper-turned-sneaker mogul is claiming the publication hasn’t counted how worth well, because they are still off — by $2 billion.
Forbes announced last week that West, 42, was initially left off its annual billionaires list released earlier this month because the Yeezy founder was unable to provide up-to-date information about his net worth.
Not making the annual list left him irate, the publication said, to the point where Kim Kardashian’s husband sent a text to Forbes and accused it of “purposely” leaving him off of the list because of his race. Meanwhile, younger sister-in-law, 22-year-old Kylie Jenner, made the list as the youngest self-made billionaire for the second year in a row.
“In the process, we can now share more details about Yeezy then ever before revealed,”
Forbes announced this week, explaining that the artist finally was able to provide more documents about his stake in Yeezy.
Thanks to “internal documents” provided, the publication now claims West’s net worth is “$1.3 billion.”
Forbes said West sent them a text saying:
“It’s not a billion. It’s $3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.”
