We’ve heard that money makes the world go around, and it turns out that the same can be said for Kanye and Kim Kardashian West’s relationship. In a story we can’t honestly decide is really romantic, or really quite awful, the social media star has revealed that her husband of four years sent her a million dollar cheque earlier this year.
That’s right, during a chat with the wonderful Ashley Graham on her new podcast, Pretty Big Deal, the 37 year-old divulged that her rapper beau gave her the financial gift for turning down a sponsored content opportunity.
The mother-of-three explained, ‘He’s like the cutest. A brand offered me a million dollars to do a post on some of their clothing and they typically—I don’t want to say who the brand is—but they typically knock off Yeezy…Let me ask Kanye how he feels about it and he says, “No babe. I really don’t want you to do that.” Understandable but that’s a lot of money.’
She continued, ‘Mother’s Day was like the next week. Mother’s Day comes and he happened to be recording out of town and I get my flowers and then I get an envelope delivered to the door. I opened the envelope and it was a million dollar cheque with a note saying thank you for always supporting me and not posting. And then, in the rest of the envelope, it was a contract to be an owner of Yeezy—to have my percentage. And that was my Mother’s Day present.’
