Blind Items Revealed

February 27, 2014

This A list celeb/rapper with A+ list name recognition is struggling so much financially that he has borrowed several million dollars from Jay-Z and hasn't paid him anything back yet which is a source of serious contention between the pair. The person borrowing the money does everything he can to avoid Jay.

Kanye West (and shortly after this he signed an agreement with Jay-Z which also gave Jay-Z the right to look at the pre-nup with Kim Kardashian)

jay owns most of kanyes catalog now

Renoblondee said...

How do these people lose all their money?

Sugar said...

Is Kanye going to have to do a Prince now?

Shelly Shell said...

Kanye shot off his mouth too many times & the public learned what a massive ass he really is.

Chris J said...

I assume through financing there own "art."

Procrastibator said...

And yet the gauche faux wedding, leather pants and such. Learn to budget! I'm a bar tender and I have more financial savvy than this well heeled gayeld

derek harvey said...

I hope he goes bankrupt!

sugarbread maker said...

kanye spends before he gets it. remember the song

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Sugarbread has been telling us this for ages.

Christopher Cruz said...

Yikes!!! All those records and concert tickets sold, and no money?!

Gurllllllll, they are so busy flossing to " maintain" their image they can't see that the trend of conspicuous consumption has been slowly moving towards frugality. We aren't impressed anymore, we just see all the waste that could have benefited more worthy causes and its really uncool.

Dallas Alice said...

Geezus--there's been a school shooting outside Portland, OR. :-(

Sugar said...

Hey Christopher! Where have ya been hiding?

Procrastibator said...

Wtf Alice? Jesus H Christburger

Jessica Larson said...

The public learned he was a jackass & he thought he could give up on music & do other "art", become a mogul, but how much was this idiot charging for a white t shirt.

Dallas Alice said...

Another semi-automatic weapon. No deaths reported.

Mama Bear said...

So she's the breadwinner?
Hey kids! Sex sells!!!!

Unknown said...

Then why would he have invited Jay Z to his wedding if he's avoiding him? There was another story that the reason Jay Z and Beyonce didn't go is because SHE didn't want to go.

Procrastibator said...

Don't want to start an NRA debate, but even if you're hunting coyote, no need for a semi weapon.

Dallas Alice said...

I don't either Pro, but I agree with you.

Procrastibator said...

Unless it's in your pants. And even then, a semi is disappointing

LottaColada said...

Kanye needs to hit up Dr. Dre if he's strapped for cash. New BFF alert

Procrastibator said...

Renoblondee: keeping Iimmy in spanx a costs $$$

Procrastibator said...

Kimmy

derek harvey said...

His music is not selling as well as it use to because it has become very experimental (actually it just rips off Aphex Twin and Air French Band). He is copying a lot of electro music and calling it his own. Plus he is lame in concert and people are starting to be embarrassed to be a fan

Dallas Alice said...

So I guess Kim paid for that monstrosity of a painted Birkin Kanye gifted to her?

crila16 said...

Jay-Z has more money than God...especially if you combine it with his wife. Never lend money to a friend, unless you never expect to get it back. J-Z is actually the one at fault.

sandybrook said...

Whatever fans he had gave him up because of her and the belief hes a sellout motherf*cker

sugarbread maker said...

kanye also can't get corporate sponsers b/c he goes off on rants about them and big$$ companys don't want to be associated w/ him. whereas jay z is smart enough to know it's all about the brand and business. kanye is just not smart enough to run a business

Dingle Barry said...

I've been saying this is the only reason he got with Kim.

His tour hasn't sold out, he's been canceling shows left and right, it's way too expensive to produce for a road tour and that extra expense has got to be coming from his pocket, thus he's been losing money.
Same with his "fashion" nothing but basic to ugly or old ideas that he wastes time and resources by changing his mind constantly. Design houses don't want to work with him as he costs them money, but he's a huge stubborn, ignorant blow hard that refuses to listen to common sense.

He's this way in every aspect of his life. Great catch Kimmode!

Christopher Cruz said...

Hiya, Sugar!!! Hiding in the shadows ;)

Procrastibator said...

+yes totes

Procrastibator said...

LOVE the aphelion twins

Nutty_Flavor said...

Kanye is actually shorter than Tom Cruise - fact.

meme deemed said...

No wonder Krusty-Kimmy took off alone after the honeymoon. She got wiff that she ain't in control of the money bag no more. That and Siniorita Kanye had to spend his 2nd honeymoon with his lover.

Krystie Rachelle said...

I was listening to his first cd the other day, and I'm telling you, it was and always has been really good. But then Kanye got over taken by this egotistical monster ala lady gaga, and the persona became bigger than the performer, and boom, now he's nothing but a punch line. I don't think he will ever get it back though. Jay Z can still sell records because he maintains his persona. Like people are going to be buy his albums about all his ho's if he looks like an angel married to Beyoncé? No way, getting his ass kicked by Solange in an elevator and being rumored to hooking up with his friends wifey are good for street cred. He's so thug! Unlike Kanye who is apparently trying to be the next Anna Wintour.

sugarbread maker said...

Word. Now you listen. Tell em 2 fast.

sugarbread maker said...

Before I get 2 furious

sugarbread maker said...

Where is lady h today? She is our other hip hop source. Someone put out a batsignal okay? ?

JSierra said...

Link to school shooting near Portland, Oregon.

Gayeld said...

I beg your pardon.

auntliddy said...

Reno, well, we can start with solid gold toilets for the house he keeps redoing abd changng his mind and redoing it. Yeah, hes a money waster. Everyone calls kim a golddigger, i think its quite the opposite. Im sure they are well into her money.

auntliddy said...

Unknown, im thinking jayz boffed kim, and bey doesnt want to near all that. Plus kim is VERY obvious about using jay and bey to promote her brand, whatever the hell that is.

auntliddy said...

Im so sick about all this random shooting. Wtf does that??!! Then they kill themselves. I say, kill yourself first, then see how many people you can mow down. Im trying to understand why people feel need to shoot others, i mean , shit is annoying but if that were the case, all of computer tech support wld be dead. In other wirds, most of us get mad, but we dont shoot anyone.

RowdyRodimus said...

I feel for Kanye a bit here, not anything he's done with Kim or agreements with the devil that is Jy Z, but I feel for him in that I'm the same way he obviously is. If I have money, I feel I have to spend it. Now I don't finance crappy art shows or bad clothing lines, I tend to buy people stuff, I love giving gifts. But I have ZERO self control when it comes to money. Seems he has the same sickness.

Cocoa said...

I've said it before, I'll say it again: I effin <3 you, liddy!!

Smokey772 said...

the thing is, imho, jayz OWES Kanye a lot. Kanye's produced the majority of JayZ's hits. Kanye is more of a commodity to Jay than anything.

people can forgive the a-hole outbursts, the lame fashion choices, and the all around douchiness of kanye because of his genius. BUT, one thing people won't forgive him for? Marrying Kim frickin Kardashian. sigh. Why, Yeezus. Why.

Sunshine said...

Listen up service industry workers. I hear that them Kardashians are cheap tippers.

Trilby said...

73-day contract. :(

Sherry said...

I'm thinking he hooked up with Kimmy because he needed the cash too. And PMK didn't know about his financial problems.

Aren't they the most disliked people in America just about? I cannot see how they have fans.

Jcool said...

Forbes said he made 20 million last year... Hes not broke.

Kat has left the building said...

Kanye was VERY good in the beginning! Nobody can doubt that and he was even more gifted in producing others work. For me, his last great album was 808's right around when his mom died. After she died, he lost it. I believe his gigantic ego stems from losing her who grounded him, and massive amounts of coke from what I've read here. I hope he comes back to Earth someday because he really is gifted, he's just hiding it now.

M. Brown said...

Maybe that's why they skipped the wedding? Save on two meals.

Wen said...

Ha Ha Ha The Kraps took him broke. Who didn't see that coming!

Wen said...

Oh auntliddy - Who in Hollywood hasn't boffed Kim?

sugarbread maker said...

The one Sunday in lv. Was 5 minutes from my house

discoflux said...

Smokey you are seriously smoking something if you think Jay-Z owes Kanye ANYTHING. Kanye has minimal producer credits throughout Jay-Z's career and certainly not "the majority" of his hits. Kanye didn't even get a producer credit until Jay-Z's 5th album in 2000, for one song, and it was NOT a hit. In fact his biggest hits even after 2000, we NOT produced by Kanye.


Kanye's first album was GREAT. But then he got too far up his own ass, treated everyone like shit, expected to be revered as a god, didn't get it, and kept throwing fits like a cry baby. He sucks and is an asshole and marrying Kim Kardashian only solidified that perception. He got lucky and should've been a one hit wonder.

As a sidenote, can y'all believe it's been 11 years since "99 Problems" (produced by Rick Rubin, NOT Kanye West) came out?! Jesus!

discoflux said...

Jcool, be that as it may, Kanye's also got a pretty stack of credit lined up against those earnings. Not to mention that that's likely pre-tax earnings.

auntliddy said...

Wen, giod point, lol

bellaluna said...

People hunt for food (and I assume sport) where I live, and I don't see the need for semi-autos either.

I'm also in agreement about the semi in the pants. ;)

Krystie Rachelle said...

I agree Kat. He lost it when his mom passed.

FlirtyChick74 said...

+1 @ auntliddy Came to say the same thing.

Amanda Groff said...

His last album sounded alot like Death Grips

MrWolf said...

Joool - First, everyone lies about what they make. Remember when Madonna was trying to pass herself off as a billionaire?

Second, it's easy to make $20 million a year and still be broke. All you have to do is spend $21 million a year and give it a few years, and you'll end up broke as fuck.

Third, the money making dynamic in music has altered - dramatically. Because of the rise of mp3 and youtube, artists no long make money off the music - too many people have access to it free. Artists make money off the appearances and the performances, off of ticket sales and brands they endorse.

Whatever musical talent Kanye has (it's very limited, btw), he ISN'T good at monetizing it.

Making music and making money off of music are very different things - That's why Jessica Simpson has more money than almost any other celebrity. It's not her brains or her talent. She just has managers with a real knack for monetizing it.

sugarbread maker said...

don't forget kanye's last tour bombed and lost a lot of money and was playing to empty houses

Bunni said...

IDK that I believe this, IDK that I don't. Kanye is capable of anything at this point. I remember when he & Gaga were gonna go on tour. He DoD the Taylor Swift thing & she bailed. It's all been downhill from there. I thought the release of the Air Yeezy's would have alleviated his financial burden. Plus they supposedly made $ off the wedding. Hmm...

outofcntrl82 said...

There is no way pmk would let kimmykaka marry anyone in financial trouble. Prenup or not, madame Kris makes sure her girls get paid. Plus, if this true.. dude, ever think of how much that check will want in child support payments? Better come up with something better than those air yeezys. .

kj said...

and you better believe that kim won't spend a dime of her money on his broke ass.

Victoria Sarkies said...

Hahahahaha

Unknown said...

So hilarious, Kim Kumdumpster is going to have to support that business dumbshit Kanye! OMG she's is as stupid as they come, and I supposed the mother Kris was a moron for not figuring this out before the wedding. I can hear it now... You pay for it baby, you my bitch now...

Hahahhahahahahahahhahahaha!

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Good share Nutty! That's pretty funny.

Common Tater said...

Oh, no! This cannot be! Let us all boycott Louis Vitton as well as the other deluxe designers where The Yeez squandered ridiculous cash to show solidarity.

Vkn said...

Oh boy....

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

i know kanye can be completely ridiculous but the man doesn't still other peoples music! he doesn't rip it off. he does what hiphop has done forever co-op and add too. in fact that is all art at this stage in the game.

also, his team goes and looks for talent and music in the electronic underground scene. i'm talking noise music. i know this because he has spoken to labels that some of my friends play on.

the man truly is a good artist. i hope he can still keep it poppin'.
