AceShowbiz - Kanye West may want his heart and his money back. The rapper is said to be trying to sell the jewelry that he previously gifted to his estranged wife Kim Kardashian as their marriage is coming to an end.
The Sun was the first to report Kanye's alleged attempts to sell his estranged wife's jewelry, just before she filed for divorce. "In the last two weeks, Kanye was attempting to sell jewelry he had purchased for Kim to at least two top jewelers," a source told the site.
"His friends knew it was over at that point. He really wanted to stay together but she was done," the source went on sharing. As for the reason why Kanye did the seemingly petty things, it's said that the jewelry might remind him of her estranged wife.
"Kanye recently said, 'I don't want to be connected to the Kardashian brand anymore' but he was so torn because he still very much loves Kim," the source spilled. "Although he never ended up selling the jewelry he was talking about how he didn't want to reminded of the past."
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye on February 19 after weeks of rumors about their separation. Neither of them has spoken up on their split, but they have been living separately, with Kanye mostly spending his time in his Wyoming ranch, while Kim and their kids remaining in Los Angeles.
The news of Kanye's alleged attempt to sell Kim's jewelry comes around the same time it was revealed that he spent $13.2 million in his unsuccessful 2020 presidential campaign, based on a review of campaign finance filings. As the campaign was largely self-funded, Ye's final Federal Election Commission report has confirmed that the 43-year-old star contributed nearly $12.5 million of his own money toward the failed campaign.
The "Follow God" spitter additionally collected approximately $2 million from outside donors, bringing his total campaign contributions to $14,538,989.74. By the end of the presidential election, he was left with about $1.3 million in the bank. He earned only 66,000 votes nationally after failing to secure his ballots in several states, meaning he spent approximately $200 for every vote.
