That sneaker money don't play.
Kim Kardashian spilled a bunch of tea during her appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Live. The subject of her sister's financial success was mentioned during the interview. Kylie, who covered Forbes Magazine as a cosmetics mogul, is close to becoming a millionaire and it seems like another family member is on the same track.
Jimmy Kimmel was clearly wondering how Kim measured up to her younger sister when he asked, "You're not almost a billionaire, are you?" Kim responded in a kind of joking matter: "I would say my husband is one, so that makes me one, right? [...] Close...close, by proximity."
Turns out, the part about Kanye being a billionaire in the making isn't actually a joke. According to The Blast, sources close to the West family have stated that the value of Yeezy hit 1.5 Billion. This supports Kanye's claims of his brand being close to reaching the $1 billion-milestone on Twitter this past April.
"We have 160 positions to fill by the end of the year. Yeezy will hit a billion dollars this year. It is the 2nd fastest growing company in history. It is a unicorn on its way to becoming a decacorn"
The tweets were first received as outlandish and compared to Trump's style of hyperbole. Seems like Kanye, who is the majority stakeholder of the sneaker brand, was being 100 after all.
