Earlier this month, Kanye “Ye” West boldly announced on a Drink Champs podcast episode that Adidas would not drop him despite him making anti-Jew comments. The Yeezy-designer seemed confident that his partnership with the German-sportswear brand would never end as 4% to 8% of Adidas sales are reportedly made from Kanye West’s Yeezy collection.

During the rapper’s cancelation due to his antisemitic remarks, Adidas claimed that their partnership with the rapper was “under review.” However, on October 25, they confirmed that they had terminated their partnership with the Donda rapper.

Forbes claimed that the 45-year old’s partnership with Adidas made $1.5 billion of his net worth. With the earnings being cut off, the publication estimated that Ye now boasts a fortune of $400 million which is made of:

“Real estate, cash, his music catalog and a 5% stake in ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s shapewear firm, Skims.”

After Forbes’ announcement went viral across social media platforms, netizens seemed to have created a GoFundMe fundraiser campaign titled “Make Kanye West a billionaire again.”
