Kanye West clears up claims he’s in debt after asking Mark Zuckerberg for $1bn

Rapper says he feels "rich people are always too cool to ask for help"

Kanye West has taken to Twitter to address those posts he sent asking Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1bn into his ideas.

West indirectly made the request to Zuckerberg, whose net worth is estimated to be $44.6bn, in a tweet on Sunday (February 14), sparking speculation that he may be in debt.

West also approached Google co-founder Larry Page to bail him out, with the rapper now setting the record straight that he is in fact, still rich and that he just wants to use other people’s money to fund his projects. See below:

West continued his rant with the message: “I know I confuse you guys sometimes buy please bare with me… This is a God dream… But if the self proclaimed cockiest person in the world can lay his personal business on the line please people see my heart.

“No matter what level you’re at in life there is still a struggle… aand a balance art family perception friends family politics and the fucking manipulators.”

He then concluded: “People wanted me to tweet again well here’s some tweets!!!”

The ‘Yeezus’ rapper has attempted to get a number of projects funded in Silicon Valley in the past. During the Madison Square Garden unveiling of his new album last week, West showed off a video game, titled ‘Only One’, which he revealed was rejected by developers.
