Last week, Kanye West's net worth was estimated to be about $6.6 billion. Some believed Kanye was the richest black person around hearing that amount. However, Forbes was trying to shut all of that down. They said no, Kanye is not the richest. Now, they aren't taking away the fact that Kanye is a billionaire, but not to the level of $6.6. billion. According to Bloomberg, they gave the estimated of Kanye's worth. However, Forbes estimates he’s worth less than a third of that, or $1.8 billion. So where did that $6.6 billion come from? Apparently, it was based on the thinking around sales of Kanye's brands, that haven't happened, yet. Bloomberg basically calculated Kanye's clothing deal with Gap and the Yeezy brand to come up with those figures. Don't get it twisted though, Kanye is still a billionaire, just not the richest person.
