You Won’t Believe What Kanye West Gifted Kim Kardashian When He Asked Her to Be Co-Owner of the Yeezy Brand
Leave it to Kanye West to shower his wife with extremely lavish gifts that the average person could never afford.
The rapper has a history of going over the top with everything he does and when it comes to surprising Kim Kardashian with special gifts, he makes sure they are moments she’ll never forget.
West had a unique way of asking Kardashian to be his business partner
Everyone knows that West likes to go over the top with a lot of things and his special Mother’s Day gift to Kardashian was no different.
Throughout their relationship, the rapper has gone above and beyond to show the reality star just how much she means to him, which has included many extravagant gifts that would leave anyone speechless.
Recently, Kardashian opened up about a special gift she received from West and you might want to sit down before we tell you.
While talking about endorsement deals and brands with Andrew Ross Sorkin at the New York Times DealBook Conference last month, Kardashian recalled a time when she turned down an opportunity to do a sponsored Instagram post for a brand that rivaled Yeezy.
“So there was a fast-fashion brand, a few of them, and they would knock off Yeezy all the time, his color palette, designs. So this fast-fashion brand offered me a million dollars for an Instagram post,” she said during the conference. “And I thought, ‘Okay, well that’s easy’– just to wear clothes that I could pick, anything that I wanted, it’s a quick post.”
Though they offered her a hefty amount to do the post, Kardashian West turned down the opportunity seeing as though West was against it.
“When I told him about it he asked me not to do it and said out of respect, I don’t think that we should be giving them everything, they copy everything,” she continued. “I completely understood why he said no. I gladly said no.”
Grateful for her ongoing support, West not only gave his wife a check for $1 million as a Mother’s Day gift — the same amount she would have made if she did the post — he also granted her co-ownership of his Yeezy brand.
This isn’t the first time West has dished out this kind of money for his wife
Though this surprised happened a few months ago, Kardashian can’t help but gush over her husband every chance she gets.
While the gift was incredibly sweet of West, Kardashian revealed to Ashley Graham during an episode of the model’s podcast, Pretty Big Deal, that she was hesitant at first to accept this type of gift from her husband.
“My mom was like, ‘Are you going to cash this?’ And I was like, ‘You better believe I am going to cash this!’ I have no shame. I did feel bad, but two days later, I was like, cashed!”
Although receiving $1 million is something that doesn’t happen a lot of people, this actually isn’t the first time the rapper has given his wife a gift worth this much.
Back in October, the rapper completely surprised Kardashian West by donating $1 million in her name to four criminal justice reform charities, Cut 50, Buried Alive Project, Equal Justice Initiative, and Anti-Recidivism Coalition.
Kardashian shared a photo of the donation certificate on her Twitter along with a caption that let fans know just how special this gift meant to her.
“I got amazing gifts from my whole family and Kanye [got] me the most amazing bags,” she tweeted. “But he also donated $1 million to my favorite charities that work so hard on prison reform on my behalf from him and the kids. This makes my heart so happy!”
