Did you ever think it would be possible for massive celebrities to acquire debt? Well believe or not, for Kayne West this is the case.
Kayne made the claim, via Twitter, that he is $53m in debt, and called on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to “invest $1bn into Kanye West ideas … after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time”.
He continued with a bizarre series of Tweets through Sunday night and Monday morning: “Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw … You love hip hop, you love my art… I am your favorite artist but you watch me barely breathe and still play my album in your house … World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me … I’m this generation’s Disney … I want to bring dope shit to the world … I don’t have enough resources to create what I really can.”
Yeah, hold on Kayne, I got Mark Zuckerberg on the other line. Does he really think it’s that easy?
West certainly has the kind of extravagant tastes that require significant sums of money. When he made his proposal of marriage to Kim Kardashian in October 2013, he did so not by taking her to a local bistro but by hiring a 41,000-capacity baseball stadium in San Francisco, with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on hand to supply the music. Talk about a pretty penny!
Maybe all the extravagant spending finally caught up with him. Or maybe, that gold digger he was talking about finally took all his Dough!
