NASHVILLE, TN (WTNH) – If you haven’t heard by now, Kanye West is supposedly $53 million in debt according to tweets from his Twitter account last weekend.
“Yeezus” fan Jeremy Piatt created a GoFundMe page for Kanye on Monday.
Piatt posted, “Kanye West, prolific entertainer/fashion icon/celebrity/member of the Kardashian family needs our help! Recently, Kanye let us in on his personal struggle. He is $53 million in debt and it doesn’t look like he’s going to get Mark Zuckerberg’s help that he desperately needs.”
The post continues, “We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today. Sure he is personally rich and can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can’t be realized. As Kanye West has told us time and time again he is the “greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time”. Great artists need to be supported financially to achieve their full potential.”
“To quote Mr. West, ‘I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now who’s gonna be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more!’”
Piatt updated on Tuesday that he did not want a penny from this donation and would like everything to go to Kanye.
