Lies Lies Lies….Kanye West Is Not Worth $6.6 Billion

Forbes has disputed Bloomberg’s report that Kanye is worth $6.6 billion. According to the outlet:

Reports that the celebrity is worth nearly $7 billion are based on the magical thinking around sales that don’t exist yet. This is why he’s currently worth less than one-third of that.

On Wednesday, multiple outlets reported that Kanye West is the richest Black person in America, worth as much as $6.6 billion. The news comes after Bloomberg reported that his sneaker brand Yeezy — as well as Yeezy Gap, which has yet to sell one item of clothing — have a combined value of as much as $4.7 billion. The publication mentioned, without going into full detail, an additional $1.7 billion in assets. 

It’s not true, based on our calculations. Forbes estimates he’s worth less than a third of that, or $1.8 billion. That’s a big jump from last May when Forbes first pegged his net worth to be $1.3 billion, but nowhere near as much as the purported $6.6 billion. Vista Equity’s Robert F. Smith remains the richest Black person in the U.S., worth an estimated $6 billion, while Aliko Dangote of Nigeria, worth $11.8 billion, is the richest Black person in the world.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is
    required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart
    so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Appreciate it

  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll
    try to get the hang of it!

  3. Wow, awesome weblog format! How long have you ever been blogging for?
    you made blogging glance easy. The whole glance of your
    web site is magnificent, as smartly as the content!
