GoFundMe Campaign Launched To Help Raise $53 Million For Kanye West
Recall, the rapper tweeted that he was in need of $53 million
Now, thanks to a fan named Jeremy Piatt, a GoFundMe has been created to help fund Ye’s future music and fashion projects. “Recently, Kanye let us in on his personal struggle. He is 53 million dollars in debt,” Piatt wrote. “We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today. Sure he is personally rich and can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can’t be realized.”
Piatt explained to Mashable that he wouldn’t be personally able to withdraw any of the money from the account. “I am trying to reach out to Kanye or his people so the funds can be transferred to him,” he said. “I have been in contact with GoFundMe and we’ve agreed to keep the page up, but I am not able to withdraw any money. The only people who will be able to withdraw money will be Kanye or his team.”
The page has been active for one day and 150 people have donated $1,032 of the $53 million in that time.
