Kanye West took a moment to congratulate his wife Kim Kardashian on her latest money-making accomplishment but not before the haters could challenge it.
Despite the fact that their are accounts are almost always running circles around the people attempting to clock them, the Kardashian-Jenners’ bank accounts are constantly up for discussion, but according to recent reports, Kim Kardashian West has made a profitable business move. Reports circulated on Monday (June 29) that global beauty company Coty acquired a 20 percent stake in Kim Kardashian’s KKW Beauty brand, dishing out $200 million. The purchase reportedly hiked the value of Kim’s beauty brand up to $1 billion. The news follows the controversy over whether or not Kylie Jenner, Kim’s sister, is truly a billionaire, but either way, it’s clear that the Kardashian-Jenner-Wests are living in their own tax bracket.
Kanye West took a moment to congratulate his wife on her latest accomplishment by sharing a loving message over on Twitter. He posted a photo of vegetables and flowers laying in the sun. “I am so proud of my beautiful wife Kim Kardashian West for officially becoming a billionaire,” the father of four tweeted. “You’ve weathered the craziest storms and now God is shining on you and our family. So blessed this is still life. So I made you this still life. We love you so much.”

However, on Tuesday, Forbes posted on its website that they estimated that Kardashian is actually not “part of the six comma club yet” and is worth $900 million. (Which is quite petty when you think about the fact that either way…she’s nearly there and rich as fuck) . The quick response from Forbes, pouring cold water on West’s claim, is likely to further sour relations between the influential money magazine and the influential sisters after the magazine alleged it had been misled by Kim’s little sister, Kylie Jenner, when it named her the world’s youngest self-made billionaire in March 2019.
The publication alleged that they were shown “tax returns that were likely forged” to convince them of Kylie’s wealth and that “Kylie’s business is significantly smaller, and less profitable, than the family has spent years leading the cosmetics industry and media outlets, including Forbes, to believe.”
Forbes estimated the net worth of Jenner, 22, to also be around the $900 million mark. Jenner shot back that Forbes’ story was based on “a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions.”
However, Forbes does accept that Kanye is a billionaire. The magazine reported in April that West is “officially a billionaire” and that “he really wants the world to know.”
