Kim Kardashian ‘officially becoming billionaire’, Kanye applauds her

NEWS DIGEST – Kanye West, a US rapper-cum-entrepreneur, has congratulated Kim Kardashian, his media personality wife, claiming that she had just officially become a billionaire.

In April, Forbes had declared the ‘Jesus is King’ crooner a billionaire. Kanye, who has a slew of ventures to his name, however, sent the elite business magazine a text that he’s not just a billionaire but worth $3.3 billion.

“It’s $3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count,” he was said to have written.

On Tuesday, the ‘Ye’ singer took to his Twitter page to congratulate his wife, who doubles as a reality TV star, claiming she has joined the ranks of billionaires.

“I’m so proud of my beautiful wife Kim Kardashian West for officially becoming a billionaire,” the rapper wrote in a post along with a photo of some vegetables.

“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.”

Renowned globally for the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ show, it is believed that West’s latest partnership with Coty, an American beauty products manufacturer, will help her expand her brand.

It is also understood that Kim sold a stake in her beauty brand to Coty for $200 million, in a deal that values the TV reality star’s three-year-old business at $1 billion.

“We are thrilled to welcome one of the most influential beauty icons to the Coty family: @kimkardashian West!” the beauty company wrote on Monday.

“With Kim’s influence and our deep expertise in prestige beauty we will build a beauty powerhouse and enter new beauty categories together.”

It was also gathered that it’ll leave her KKW Beauty breaking into more categories including skincare, haircare, personal care, and nail products while also bringing the items into more global markets.
