Kim Kardashian is part owner of Kanye West’s “Yeezy” business.
While appearing on a podcast with Ashely Graham, reality TV start Kim Kardashian revealed her Mother’s Day surprise from her husband Kanye West after she turned down a lucrative business offer.
“A brand offered me a million dollars to do a post on, you know, some of their clothing,” Kim explained. “And they typically, I don’t want to say who the brand is, but they typically knock off Yeezy.”
The reality star admits the $1 million opportunity was enticing, but felt it was appropriate to run it by her husband before she formally accepted.
Unsurprisingly, Kanye wasn’t thrilled about the idea.
“He was like, ‘No, babe, I really don’t want you to do that,’” Kim recalled. “It’s understandable, but that’s a lot of money!”
She ended up Turning down seven figures for a single Instagram post. Kanye then made sure to express his gratitude about a week later on Mother’s Day, when he presented Kim with flowers and an envelope.
“I open the envelope and it’s a million-dollar check and it was a note saying, ‘Thank you for always supporting me and not posting,’” Kim said. “And then, in the rest of the envelope, it was a contract to be an owner of Yeezy and my percentage.”
Considering Yeezy’s reported $1.5 billion valuation, it’s safe to say Kim walked away with a win.
