Forbes has denied reports on Kanye West’s finances, claiming that he was the richest African-American man in America.
The rapper was reported to be worth an estimated $6.6 billion for a list of posts earlier this week. However, in a statement issued Thursday, the American business magazine Forbes said that West’s claims “are not true.
It read: “On Wednesday, various outlets reported that Kanye West is the richest African-American person in the United States, with a value of 6.6 billion dollars.” The news comes after Bloomberg reported that Kanye’s brands are worth a combined $ 4.7 billion. The post mentioned, without going into full details, an additional $ 1.
7 billion in assets.
That’s not true. Forbes estimates it is worth less than a third of that, or $ 1. (Sildenafil)
8 billion. The statement from the financial outlet says: “It’s a big jump from last May when his net worth was set at $ 1.
3 billion, but nowhere near the supposed $ 6.6 billion. Robert F. Smith of Vista Equity remains the richest African-American person in the US. ”
Forbes continued: “Robert F. Smith does have an estimated value of $ 6 billion, while Nigeria’s Aliko Dangote, worth $ 11.
8 billion, is the richest black person in the world.” In April of last year, Kanye declared himself a billionaire and said his net worth had soared to $ 3 billion. However, Forbes replied that his fortune was much less than what he claimed.
In typical Kanye fashion, he then texted the publication: “It’s not a billion. It’s $ 3.3 billion since no one at Forbes knows how to count.
” Despite failing to take over the title of America’s richest African-American man, the hitmaker has certainly come a long way since 2016, when he claimed to have racked up $53 million in debt.
