Kanye says he owes $53 million, so he hits up Mark Zuckerberg and Larry Page for some change
LOS ANGELES — Kanye West owes tens of millions of dollars in debt, or so he claimed on Twitter the other day.
Over the weekend, West released his new album "The Life of Pablo" on Tidal and then dropped another little nugget — he's $53 million in debt.
Ye then decided to tweet Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg to ask him to invest $1 billion in "Kanye West ideas." West also decided to tweet Google's Larry Page while he was at it.
It looks like Kanye likes to invest a lot in his own companies. West dropped $40 million into three seasons worth of Yeezy fashion, while also funding his first generation of Yeezy shoes with Nike out of his own pocket.
West hopped back on Twitter yesterday to explain his financial situation by saying, "Yes I am personally rich and I can buy furs and houses for my family."
"But I need access to more money in order to bring more beautiful ideas to the world," West said.
