In April 2020, Forbes declared Kanye West a billionaire; a status the he had coveted for a long time.
His asset was placed at $1.3 billion, higher than that of his sister-in-law and makeup mogul Kylie Jenner who’s valued at $1billion at that time.
Added to that, Forbes said the statement of assets they received from West’s team lists $17 million in cash (£13.7 million) and 35 million in stocks.
West’s other notable assets, according to his team, were $81 million in property and 21 million in landed properties.
However, despite being classified as a billionaire, West was unhappy as he claimed Forbes have undervalued him. “It’s not a billion,” West reportedly texted them. “It’s 3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.”
