International rap star Kanye West stunned fans on Saturday night after declaring he was $53million in debt.
The rapper made the claim on Twitter ahead of his Saturday Night Life appearance, his latest headline-making tweets in recent days.
The father-of-two, who is known for his extravagant lifestyle with wife Kim Kardashian, tweeted: ‘I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…’
The 38-year-old tweeted for prayers so that his debt was overcome and followed it with: “This is all all is fun all in good feelings… We will all be gone 100 years from now but what did we do to help while we were here!!!”
The headline-making artist held a huge album launch last week where he debuted new tracks including “Real Friends” and “Famous” and is thought to be worth around $100 million.
The rapper has used lyrics about faith in previous songs, such as “Jesus Walks.”
Kanye’s surprising claim about his finances comes after he has been on a massive social media offensive this week, hitting out at Taylor Swift, defending his new clothing collection and sticking-up for his father-in-law Caitlyn Jenner.
While his wife didn’t address the debt claims, she proudly supporting her husband on Twitter by posting photos of his SNL performance and posting a link to Tidal so fans could download his new album.
Meanwhile, it’s not the first time Kanye has talked about how much money he owes.
Last year he admitted he went $16million into debt trying to get his Yeezy clothing line off the ground.
‘I was trying to play a sport that’s a billionaire sport. It’s not a millionaire sport and I’m proud of the debt. I don’t care about somebody’s Ghost (Phantom) or somebody’s house. I care about my vision’ he told BET.
He is married to Kim Kardashian, from Keeping up with the Kardashians, who is thought to be worth around £41 million.-OCR
