Forbes magazine estimates — the 42 year old superstar-turned-footwear magnate, Kanye West has a current net worth of $1.3 billion, which is $300 million more than little sister Kylie.
Kanye West called out Forbes, saying the magazine still undervalued him, claiming a value of $3.3billion.
“It’s not a billion,” Kanye West texted the magazine. “It’s $3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.”
The husband of Kim Kardashian has always wanted to be declared a billionaire.
The company did not include the musician in their annual billionaires list, citing a lack of documentation to support the claim.
“I’m not a numbers guy,” Kanye West explained instead of providing proper documentation. “To ask me to somehow translate this to numbers is to ask your grandmother exactly what the recipe of the cake was.”
