Kim Kardashian dishes on Kanye West's Mother's Day gift to her.
Kim Kardashian catches a lot of flack for some of Kanye West's antics, but despite it all, she rides for her man. Kim Kardashian spoke to Ashley Graham on the "Pretty Big Deal" podcast recently and explained how she became a part-owner of Kanye West's Yeezy brand.
As Kanye West's Yeezy empire continues to get bigger and bigger by the days, Kim Kardashian recently explained how she ended up gaining part-ownership of the company.
"A brand offered me a million dollars to do a post on, you know, some of their clothing,” she said. "And they typically, I don't want to say who the brand is, but they typically knock off Yeezy."
Kim said she thought about it before she asked Kanye.
“He was like, ‘No, babe, I really don’t want you to do that,’” she recounted. "It's understandable but that's a lot of money."
Mother's Day came a week after Kim turned down the deal. While Kanye was recording out of the town that day, he sent Kim Kardashian flowers along with an envelope.
"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,'" she recalled. "And then, in the rest of the envelope, it was a contract to be an owner of Yeezy and my percentage."
