It looks like splitting up with Kim Kardashian has paid off handsomely. XXL reports that Kanye West has doubled his net worth in the last year and is now worth $6.6 billion.
Most of his dough is coming from his Yeezy sneaker and apparel line. He also has $1.7 billion in other assets, $122 million in cash and stocks, $110 million from his music catalog, and will make millions for his partnerships with Adidas AG and Gap Inc.
Funny enough, Kanye is also making money from his ex Kim Kardashian. The outlet adds that he invested in Kim’s Skims shapewear company. There is no word on whether he will still be involved in her business once the divorced is finalized.
After his divorce, Kanye West is the richest black American with an estimated net worth of $6.6billion. Elon Musk & Jeff Bezos are also single.— Uncle Chu (@chubiei) March 18, 2021
