Famous reality star, Kim Kardashian West was offered the opportunity to do a sponsored post with a clothing brand for $1 million some time ago and she wanted to know what husband Kanye West thought before taking the deal.
Kim, while speaking to Ashley Graham on her debut episode of her podcast, Pretty Big Deal, said, “It is great money, but the brand was typically knockoff Yeezy, so I said let me ask Kanye how he feels about it.”
Kanye West then told his wife to turn it down and she obliged. But to make up for the lost business opportunity, the Yeezy designer sent Kardashian West a $1 million check for Mother’s Day two weeks later.
“He happened to be recording out of town and I get an envelope delivered to the door. I open the envelope and it is a million dollar check and a note saying, ‘Thank you for always supporting me and not posting,’” Kardashian West says.
She adds, “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!”
But that wasn’t the only big gift West gave the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star for Mother’s Day this year. The fashion designer and rapper also granted her an ownership percentage of his Yeezy brand.
“In the rest of the envelope, it was a full, thick contract to be an owner of Yeezy to my have my percentage,” Kardashian West says.
