Why Kanye West Doesn’t Like To Be Called A Billionaire
Forbes recently announced that Kanye West is a billionaire, and West isn’t too happy about that information going viral. And not for the reason you would might think.
Kanye already stated his disappointment at Forbes when they denied to call him a billionaire in August of last year when he was on the cover of their magazine.
Earier this month, when they released their annual billionaire’s list, Kanye was omitted from the list and reportedly texted a Forbes journalist saying, “You know what you’re doing… You’re toying with me and I’m not finna lye [sic] down and take it anymore in Jesus name.”
Last weekend Forbes announced that they have received “new information” and are currently valuing Kanye West at $1.3bn, which would make him a billionaire. The statement said: “New information about Kanye West’s deal with Adidas for sneaker brand Yeezy convinced Forbes to call the entrepreneur and musician a billionaire.”
After that Kanye texted some editors of the magazine and said: “It’s not a billion. It’s 3.3 billion [sic] since no one at Forbes knows how to count.”
