Kanye West kindly gave an update on his quest to shake $1 billion out of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and surprisingly, it may have worked! Is Kanye really getting buckets of bucks from the Zuck?
Kanye West, 38, let paparazzi at LAX on February 19 in on an important tidbit: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is apparently going to lend him some major dough after he begged and pleaded for it over Twitter! Wait, what?
Paparazzi at LAX swarmed Kanye as he exited the airport after a long flight from France, where he escaped after ranting backstage at Saturday Night Live on February 13. Kanye bonded with the paps and answered their questions, something he usually doesn’t do, and even broke up a fight between two! After that act of heroics, someone asked him if Mark had ever responded to his request on Twitter for $1 billion dollars for “Kanye West ideas.” As it turns out, yes! Mark “might end up helping out,” Kanye tells the crowd.

I don’t have enough resources to create what I really can…

After that shocking revelation, there’s still a lot of questions to be answered! How much money is Mark actually giving Kanye, and what are the ideas that Kanye is trying to fund? Kanye went on a wild rant on Twitter on February 15 further begging Mark for money, saying that “I don’t have enough resources to create what I really can…” Still no insight into what he’s trying to create! But hey, Mark’s biting! Maybe it’s because Kanye guilted him by saying that he knew he was Mark’s favorite rapper, and he should be helping him out!
Kanye can’t be that desperate cash, especially after the crazy spending he’s been doing lately! He and Kim Kardashian are upgrading the pool at their lavish Los Angeles estate — by building a lake! Yes, that’s correct; Kim and Kanye are tearing up a perfectly posh pool to build a body of water that’s apparently five times bigger than any other in their Hidden Hills neighborhood. So much for worrying about that $53 million, right? Not to mention, Kim and North West have been spotted out and about in NYC wearing fur coats; not your bargain basement steal! Is Kanye really in need of Mark’s help?
HollywoodLifers, do you think Mark is really giving Kanye money? Tell us in the comments!
