Kanye’s YEEZY Brand Receives $1.5 Billion Valuation – Blake Griffin Ordered to Pay $258K a Month in Child Support

*Kanye West could be on track to billionaire status, with sources close to the rapper revealing that YEEZY recently received a $1.5 billion USD valuation.

As noted by HypeBeast.com, the company’s financial status appeared to be confirmed by Kim Kardashian, who was asked by Jimmy Kimmel if she was “almost a billionaire.”

Replying to the question, she answered ”I would say my husband is. That makes me one, right?”

Kanye also addressed YEEZY’s impressive growth in a Tweet back in April.

“We have 160 positions to fill by the end of the year. Yeezy will hit a billion dollars this year. It is the 2nd fastest growing company in history. It is a unicorn on its way to becoming a decacorn,” he wrote.

As noted by The Blast, just because a company is worth over a billion dollars, doesn’t necessarily mean its founder is. But West is still Yeezy’s majority stakeholder, which means “he is right at the line of being considered a billionaire.”

In related news, Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin has been ordered to pay $258,000 a month in child support to his ex-fiancee.

Griffin called it quits with Brynn Cameron a year ago. They share two children together, Ford, 5, and Finn, 2.

Court documents obtained by Radar Online show that Cameron claims that Blake kicked her and their kids out of his house after breaking off their engagement; right around the time he starting dating Kendall Jenner.

Court docs reveal that Griffin’s yearly income is $35 million, and he’s expected to make $31.8 million next year.
