Kanye West might have a big mouth, but he certainly doesn’t have a big bank account! The man is $53 million in debt, and now he wants Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to bail him out!
Just prior to his appearance on Saturday Night Live, West tweeted, “I write this to you my brothers while still in 53 million in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… this is my true heart…”
Kanye also had more to say. He posted another Tweet just before the cry for support.
“Let’s dance in the streets. I am consumed by my purpose to help the world,” it read.
The tweets represent somewhat of a departure from his usual antics. Most tweets from the rapper consist of him stroking his own ego and attacking his critics. It’s quite the personal moment from the ego-maniac to learn that he is $53 million in debt.
But Kanye has a plan to solve his money problems. He’s asking none other than billionaire and philanthropist Mark Zuckerberg for financial assistance!
Kanye tweeted, “Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.”
Zuckerberg has yet to comment on the situation.
Despite being $53 million in the hole, Kanye West is still spending money in a big way. At his recent Yeezy Fashion Show, the rapper hired 1,200 extras to take part in the event. This does not include the actual models themselves, who we assumed earned a pretty payday for sporting some Yeezy attire.
Meanwhile, Kanye has allegedly been feuding with his wife Kim Kardashian as of late. It is now suspected that money issues might be the culprit. Kardashian’s estimated net worth is $85 million. If this is true, it would be no surprise that she would refuse to bail out her husband for his frivolous ego-driven spending.
