Kanye West's Yeezy brand might be putting up higher numbers than we thought. New reports are slating that the adidas subsidiary was just evaluated at $1.5 billion USD. Furthermore, Kanye’s stake in the brand — seemingly along with his current net worth — has him toeing billionaire status.
Before Yeezus disciples start with the ‘Kanye the new Steve Jobs’ tweets, this news doesn't come from Forbes. This comes from The Blast who are quoting ‘sources close to Kanye’, so it’s best to take the information with a grain of salt.
However, in a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kim K was asked whether she was jealous of her sister’s newly reported $900 million USD wealth. ‘You’re not almost a billionaire, are you?’ asked Kimmel, to which Kim replied, ‘I would say my husband is, so that makes me one by proximity.’
Kim’s word adds weight to the claim, but we’ll still be waiting to see the financial report.
