A Go Fund Me Page Was Launched To Help Kanye West Get Out Of Debt

Since announcing he's $53 million in personal debt, a loyal Kanye West fan launched a Go Fund Me page to help the TLOP artist get out of the red.

Kanye West recently took to Twitter to announce that despite his extravagant life, he's $53 million in personal debt, which came as a surprise to many since he's earned 21 Grammys and has long been praised for his musical prowess. West even went as far as to ask Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to invest in some of his ideas.

While many viewed 'Ye's financial woes as pure poppycock, Monday (February 15) user Jeremy Piatt took matters into his own hands and created a Go Fund Me page with the intent of raising money to help The Life of Pablo creator get out of the red.

Recently, Kanye let us in on his personal struggle. He is 53 million dollars in debt and it doesn't look like he's going to get Mark Zuckerberg's help that he desperately needs. We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today. Sure he is personally rich and  can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can't be realized.

As Kanye West has told us time and time again he is the "greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time". Great artists need to be supported financially to achieve their full potential.

To quote Mr. West, "I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now who's gonna be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more!"

At the time this post was published, other kind fellows like Piatt raised $2,222. Piatt is going for the gusto and hopes to raise the $53 million needed to get Mr. West out of debt.

Sensing some may view the page as a way to crowdsource money for his own personal needs and wants, Piatt later updated the page to inform people, this money was going straight to Kanye, Kim North and Saint.

I'd like to update everyone and let you know that I don't want a penny from this. I would like everything to go to Kanye. Since he is such a high profile public figure, I would prefer to have GoFundMe transfer all funds to his people directly.

At least there are good Samaritans left in the world.
