Rapper Kanye West took us on an emotional rollercoaster last week. With all his Twitter rants, we’re just not sure which direction he’s headed in next.  Right before his appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” Kanye informed his Twitter followers that he’s 53 million dollars in personal debt. Now, we know you’re wondering how Kanye got in this predicament, especially with his writing and producing credits, along with his Yeezy clothing line. Not to mention, he has married into one of the richest Hollywood families, The Kardashians. Kanye did not name the reason behind his debt; however, he did ask that we pray he overcomes his financial woes.

We have reason to believe that Kanye’s money problems have something to do with his fashion ventures. He has not been shy about how much he has sacrificed for the success of his clothing line, mentioning that his Yeezy clothing line landed him 16 million dollars in debt in 2015.

I was trying to play a sport that’s a billionaire sport. It’s not a millionaire sport and I’m proud of the debt,” he told BET in 2015.

Kanye also asked Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, via Twitter, to invest a $1 billion into his musical endeavors.

Kanye just released his new album, The Life of Pablo and showed his Yeezy Season 3 collection at fashion week. Hopefully, this will help put him back on his feet.
