Price of Loyalty

Kim Kardashian-West’s loyalty to husband Ye—formerly, Kanye West—is worth a lot; $1 Million to be exact. While on Ashley Graham’s Podcast, Kim shared that a brand, known for creating Yeezy style knock-offs, offered her $1 Million to promote them. Kanye said she really shouldn’t do it, so she didn’t. The following week, for her Mother’s Day gift, the rapper gave her flowers and a check for $1 Million. There was also a note thanking her for not supporting the other brand and a contract to be part owner of the Yeezy brand. If you’re wondering, Kim “absolutely” cashed the check.

“Ye”

Kanye West is pulling a Prince. On Saturday, the rapper tweeted, “The being formally known as Kanye West…I am YE”. The tweet came ahead of West’s album release and performance on Saturday Night Live. He has gone by “Ye” as a nickname in the past and used it as the title of his last album, but has not clarified if he is changing his stage name. He has however, changed his social media to the new moniker.
