Kanye West fan has created a GoFundMe page in order to help the artist get back billionaire status, however, dozens of others have responded by creating crowdfunding pages of their own to make themselves billionaires instead of the controversial star.

Over the past week or so, there have been dozens of pages created which can be found in a search of ‘Kanye billionaire’  on the American for-profit crowdfunding platform.

It all started when one GoFundMe page – titled ‘Make Kanye West a billionaire again’ – was put up asking for donations to help the 45-year-old star reclaim billionaire status after Forbes set his net worth at a paltry $400million after losing partnerships with Adidas and Gap.

Hmm: It all started when one GoFundMe page – titled ‘Make Kanye West a billionaire again’ – was put up asking for donations to help the 45-year-old star reclaim billionaire status after Forbes set his net worth at a paltry $400million after losing partnerships with Adidas and Gap

However, the page was taken down – in addition to a few more like it – presumably due to violations of the site’s terms of service but they reportedly did not raise too much money before meeting their end.

GoFundMe allows people to raise money for events ranging from life events such as celebrations and graduations to challenging circumstances like accidents and illnesses.

 The crowdfunding effort may have not raised that money but did get plenty of attention online as many posted about it on social media as news outlets also wrote articles about it.

As if that wasn’t already enough ridiculousness, many others responded by creating GoFundMe pages of their own pleading with generous users to donate money to make them billionaires instead of Ye.

These users haven’t exactly been able to jump social class as most have only raised about $5 with the most successful campaign earning just $40 so far.

This comes days after Ye claimed he lost $2 billion in a single day as companies have continued to sever ties with the rapper following his anti-Semitic remarks. 

Certainly an effort: As if that wasn’t already enough ridiculousness, many others responded by creating GoFundMe pages of their own pleading with generous users to donate money to make them billionaires instead of Ye

Meanwhile West’s empire has continued to crumble as last week Adidas dropped his Yeezy shoe line – a deal which was worth $1.5billion – with Gap, Footlocker, TJ Maxx, and Balenciaga all following suit and cutting ties with the rapper.

The rapper was embarrassingly escorted out of Skechers headquarters on Wednesday after showing up unannounced to pitch his Yeezy brand a day after being dropped by Adidas and having his songs banned by Peloton.

Skechers representatives said in a statement: ‘Considering Ye was engaged in unauthorized filming, two Skechers executives escorted him and his party from the building after a brief conversation. Skechers is not considering and has no intention of working with West.

‘We condemn his recent divisive remarks and do not tolerate anti-Semitism or any other form of hate speech. The Company would like to again stress that West showed up unannounced and uninvited to Skechers corporate offices.’ 

The rapper’s removal from the shoe brand’s office comes mere hours after Adidas announced that it will continue to sell Yeezy products while removing the rapper’s moniker. 

How much is Kanye really worth?

Forbes estimate that Kanye is worth around $2billion, with DailyMail.com breaking down his individual deals:

ADIDAS – $1.5billion

 West’s deal with Adidas was the crowning jewel of his fortune, with sales climbing to $1.7billion in 2020 – earning him $191 million in royalties.

Forbes estimates that the Yeezy business with Adidas is worth $1.5billion, and the company confirmed that they were likely to lose up to $250million of their net income in 2022 as a result of the split.

GAP X BALENCIAGA – $970million

His GAP collection was estimated at around $970million when the deal was announced in 2021, but he has since terminated his work with the retailer.

Initial products sold out in 2021, after being announced in June 2020, in a partnership which was expected to last for ten years but was cut short by West.

GAP were also part of a deal between Yeezy and Balenciaga, with estimates claiming they would bring in $1billion in projected sales.

SKIMS – $160million

West, who divorced Kim Kardashian in 2020, remains a partner in Skims but it is unclear how much he earns from that.

He previously ranted about owning 5 percent of the business, which is estimated at a $3.2billion net worth. 

If that is the case then he would have a $160million stake in the company. 

MUSIC – $90million 

He has sold over 140 million albums worldwide, and documents seen by Forbes show that his own recorded music and publishing rights is worth at least $90million.

Between mortgages, advances and other liabilities, Forbes say West owes about $100 million.

Management said that they will sell the items under their own brand at the beginning of 2023, according to analysts. 

Adidas broke off their deal with Ye on Tuesday after pressure from fans over the rapper and designer’s recent anti-Semitic comments. 

It ended the lucrative partnership, which included royalty payments and other fees. 

Since other similar remarks across social media, including a tweet declaring he would go ‘death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,’ Ye has lost a string of high profile partnerships. 

Footwear retailer Foot Locker said they would ‘not be supporting any future Yeezy product drops, and we have instructed our retail operators to pull any existing product from our shelves and digital sites.’

Even auction house Christie’s which was handling the private sale of a rare Nike Air Yeezy 1 prototype worn by West to the 2008 Grammy’s is no longer proceeding with the sale.

The termination of the Adidas deal has knocked Ye out of the billionaire ranks, according to wealth tracker Forbes.  

Ye is now worth a comparatively paltry sum of $400 million, which Forbes estimates comes from real estate, cash, his music catalog, and a five percent stake in ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s shapewear firm, Skims.

But as corporations around the world break off deals with Ye, music streaming service Spotify said it would not remove the rapper’s music unless his label requested it.

Recent anti-Semitic remarks made by the rapper are ‘just awful comments,’ and would have warranted removal from Spotify for violating its policies if they had been on a podcast or recording, Spotify chief Daniel Ek said.

However, music from the artist now known as Ye does not violate anti-hate policies, and any anti-Semitic comments he has made cannot be found on the music streaming platform.

‘It’s really just his music, and his music doesn’t violate our policy,’ said Ek, adding, ‘It’s up to his label, if they want to take action or not.’

It emerged last week that the rapper was dropped by Camille Vasquez, the attorney who defended Johnny Depp in the Amber Heard defamation trial, as well as top talent agency CAA.  

A source for The New York Post claimed: ‘After Ye doubled down [on anti-Semitic comments] this weekend, Camille dropped him. The firm still wanted to make it work but on the condition he retract, he wouldn’t – so he fired them.’ 

CAA had cut ties with Ye at some point in the past month, according to the LA Timesafter he made the anti-Semitic remarks. 

Meanwhile, production studio MRC also announced on Monday they are shelving a documentary they made about the rapper.

MRC studio executives Modi Wiczyk, Asif Satchu, and Scott Tenley announced in a memo Monday: ‘We cannot support any content that amplifies his platform.’

Budget: Ye is now worth $400 million, which Forbes estimates comes from real estate, cash, his music catalog, and a five percent stake in ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s shapewear firm, Skims
