Kanye West ‘is worth $6.6 BILLION with half of his income from his Yeezy brand’

Kanye West has assets to protect in his divorce that are worth billions. 

The 43-year-old rapper is reportedly worth $6.6 billion in large part because of his Yeezy sneaker and apparel brand, which is valued between $3.2 billion and $4.7 billion by UBS Group AG.

He is currently facing divorcing wife Kim Kardashian. But the couple reportedly signed a prenuptial agreement and neither party is contesting the terms of the document.

People confirmed the new number, which is a significant increase from the $1.3 billion Forbes reported that West was worth back in April 2020.

The higher number has a lot to do with his apparel brand now being in partnership with Adidas AG and Gap Inc.  

The value of the new Gap collaboration could be worth as much as $970 million according to Bloomberg.

He has full solo ownership and creative control of the Yeezy brand and signed a 10-year agreement to design and sell clothes under the Yeezy Gap label in 2020.

It will include craft items for men, women and kids. The collection will not feature footwear because Yeezy’s profitable partnership with Adidas runs through 2026.

She is seeking joint custody of their four children, and things have become increasingly awkward between the two in the weeks since the paperwork was filed.

Kanye will now only communicate with his ex via security guards, insiders told Page Six

‘Even before Kim filed for divorce, Kanye changed his numbers and said, “You can contact me through my security.” Despite this, she trusts him around the kids. He loves them and is seeing a lot of them,’ they told the outlet.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had conversations with ‘her financial advisors to figure out what would be best for her whole family’ ahead of the divorce, a source told US Weekly in January. 

‘Kim has had all of her and Kanye’s financials and properties ready to be split, it’s a very fair deal for everyone,’ they added.
