Kanye West is undoubtedly at his worst. The rapper has not only inflicted millions in losses for breaking a working relationship with important brands, now he announces that four of his bank accounts have been frozen.
The reason? As he said, the US tax agency that ensures compliance with tax and fiscal laws (the IRS) froze his accounts due to a doubt that amounts to 50 million dollars, reported Yahoo News.
“I’m talking about literally finding out this morning that they were trying to put me in jail. But at least I found out. In agreement. So they’ve put a $75 million hold on four of my accounts. And then they said I owe a bunch of taxes. It took me like six hours to figure out how much. It was a lot… well, around 50 million dollars », she confessed in an interview on the podcast“ Timcast IRL ”.
Kanye has put aside his more arrogant streak to admit that he is overwhelmed by the situation because “he is not the most financially savvy person on the planet”, so he has turned to several experts in the sector to find out if he is at risk of being accused of tax evasion.
He will assume his responsibilities
In that same talk, the artist explained that after becoming famous in his mid-20s he basically stopped acquiring practical knowledge related to daily life because he has other people who make sure everything runs smoothly in his day-to-day life.
“So now… I have to learn how to run a company. I have to learn to, you know, really count. It is as if I did not even know where to put the money, “she acknowledged in a rare display of humility.
Your financial problems come at a very inopportune time. First of all, Kanye announced a few weeks ago his intention to run again as a candidate for the presidency of the United States for the 2024 elections, which implies a significant investment of money to finance his campaign.
Also, according to the divorce agreement he just signed with his ex Kim Kardashian, he has to pay her $200,000 as child support for the four children they share.
