Kanye says he joined the billions club years back, but Forbes wanted proof- so they declined to name him a billionaire, but that’s until his accountants provided proof that was good enough to crown him the second hip hop billionaire to the tune of 1.3 billion dollars.
Bank of America Corp. valued his sneakers (yeezy) alone for almost $3 billion last year, according to a document reviewed by Bloomberg, That was before the Covid-19 pandemic devastated the fashion industry. But irrespective of the figures- Kanye is a billionaire (period)
So now can we laugh at the days when many where convinced the Kardashian curse will ruin Kanye.
The good old days when Kim still wore color. Everyone was convinced that Kim will definitely ruin Kanye’s life
She was a reality TV Star, and reality TV did not have the legitimate status it enjoys today. To many she was either famous for her sex tape or famous for nothing. To make matters worse, she divorced her ex- husband Chris Humphreys after 72 days and a high profile wedding on TV
It did not matter that Kim had a string of business lines doing fairly well- Dash stores, perfumes and beauty lines, she was bad news for Kanye
“We won’t be getting the old Kanye back ever. He is completely ruined.”Rapper Azelia Banks
Kanye has plummeted in terms of popularity and his career has been negatively affected by his relationship with Kim.New York Daily News,
Inspite of the criticism, Kanye was in love, and Kim became not just his girlfriend, but his fashion muse
He stepped her up to couture fashion , he started styling her himself and making sure she got on the best dressed list . In 2012, he hauled out her entire wardrobe and bought her new clothes.
At that time, no designer wanted to touch or dress Kim or any of the Kardashians. Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci was the first high fashion brand to dress Kim because he was friends with Kanye.
She also got her first invite to the MET gala as Kanye’s +1
After their marriage in 2014, Kim has continued to rise taking bold business decisions- starting a kids clothing company and video game
While Kim had reached A level Status thanks to Kanye’s meticulous involvement in her looks, Kanye himself was beginning to unravel.
In 2016, Taylor swift / Kanye had a huge disagreement that lead to Kim leaking a phone conversation between Kanye and Taylor- Petty AF but Kim felt she needed to speak up for him while he was being demonized in the press
kanye was on the edge in 2016, suffering an apparent psychiatric breakdown- he was ranting on stage, calling out everyone from Kid Cudi to Jay z . When he was eventually hospitalized Kim had to step up to be by his side inspite of the fact she was still recovering from the trauma of her robbery.
She also seems to have supported him when he was in debt, though that cant be out rightly verified with her tweet below
Ye was in debt after pouring money into his fashion company, Yeezy. He revealed his financial woes on Twitter, followed by a plea to Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion in the rapper’s “ideas.”
Remember Kanye’s Bizarre meeting with Trump, wearing a Maga red cap and having melt down in the white house
It does not matter if he wants to vote for Trump, or thinks slavery is a choice, if you come for Kanye, Kim will come for you.
The sweetest moment for me will be Kim wearing Kanye’s Yeezy and walking around to anywhere paparazzi will get maximum pictures
But its a balance – Kanye still treats her like a queen- during the MET gala, he faded into the background and allowed her to shine
Awwwww, so sweet these two…
