Kim Kardashian was forced to turn down a lucrative deal from a clothing company because the company was her husband’s competitor and Kanye West rewarded her greatly for her loyalty.
Kim Kardashian revealed the reward she got in a podcast on Tuesday as plus-size model Ashley Graham released the first episode of her new podcast, “Pretty Big Deal”.
Kim Kardashian was Ashley’s first guest and they spoke about a lot, ranging from Kim’s daughter North West’s prom dress (she’s eyeing Kim’s gold cross Versace gown from the 2018 Met Gala) to Kim’s evolving relationship with fashion. But most notably, they touched on a recent extravagant Mother’s Day present Kim received from her husband, Kanye West.
Kim said that not long ago, a clothing brand that “typically knock off Yeezy” offered her a million dollars for a sponsored Instagram post. She told them she needed to discuss first with her husband who owns Yeezy. When she did, he told her he didn’t want her taking the deal, so she let it go.
Kim said: “So, a brand offered me a million dollars to do a post, and they typically knock off Yeezy. So, I said, ‘You know what, it’s great money. Let me ask Kanye how he feels about it.’” For Mother’s Day, he’s like the cutest. So, a brand offered me a million dollars to do a post, and they typically knock off Yeezy. So, I said, ‘You know what, it’s great money. Let me ask Kanye how he feels about it.’
Kanye West didn’t feel so great about it. He’s like, ‘No, babe, I really don’t want you to do that,’.
Kanye West didn’t feel so great about it. Understandable, but that’s a lot of money.
Mother’s Day comes, and he happened to be recording out of town. I get my flowers, and I get an envelope delivered to the door. It was a million-dollar cheque and a note saying thank you for always supporting me and not posting.
It was also a contract to be an owner of Yeezy, a full thick contract with my percentage, she added.
