However, Kanye apparently claimed he has $3.3 billion, which the Forbes Magazine whittled down to $1.26 billion after analysing his holdings, Yeezy business, and property values.

He texted a member of Forbes staff after the article was published : "It's not a billion. It's $3.3 billion since no one at Forbes know how to count, you know what you're doing". 'When I did Forbes, I showed them a $890 million receipt and they still didn't say 'billionaire,'' Kanye added.

Kanye sells more than $200 a pair in United States and elsewhere and most of the rest Kanye's wealth comes from the real estate he owns.
