Kanye West surprised his wife Kim Kardashian with an unconventional gift this past Mother’s Day. Kim joined model Ashley Graham’s Pretty Big Deal podcast Tuesday (Oct. 2), where she recounted the events that led to the Chicago native’s generous offer of him making Kardashian a part-owner of the Yeezy empire.
“A brand offered me a million dollars to do a post on, you know, some of their clothing. And they typically, I don’t want to say who the brand is, but they typically knock off Yeezy,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star began. Kanye quickly discouraged his wife from taking the offer, but had an even better idea than taking up the lucrative opportunity for Kim.
The 41-year-old presented his wifey with the usual flowers on Mother’s Day, but a mysterious envelope was also attached as part of the gift. “I open the envelope and it’s a million-dollar check and it was a note saying, ‘Thank you for always supporting me and not posting.’ In the rest of the envelope, it was a contract to be an owner of Yeezy and my percentage,” Kim revealed, though she didn’t share her exact stake in the company.
Meanwhile, West boasted that his Yeezy company allegedly just underwent a $2.2 billion valuation during his appearance on TMZ Live earlier this week (Oct. 1).
