Kanye West claims he is $53m in debt in another OTT Twitter outburst

15 February 2016, 10:16

Los Angeles - Kanye West claims he is $53m in debt.

The 38-year-old rap star took to Twitter moments before he was due to appear on the American TV show Saturday Night Live to make the bizarre claim about his personal finances.

In the latest of a series of much-discussed Twitter outbursts, Kanye said:

Kanye also came out in support of Caitlyn Jenner, after she attended his show at Madison Square Garden in New York, when he debuted his new album The Life of Pablo and his latest fashion collection.

Alongside a photograph of himself and Caitlyn, Kanye wrote:

Meanwhile, Kanye insists he didn't "diss" Taylor Swift in his new track Famous.

In the song, which he previewed at his Yeezy fashion show, he rapped about having sex with the 26-year-old singer and said he made "that bitch famous" but he now claims he never meant to upset Taylor with it.

In a series of tweets, he wrote:

The 38-year-old rapper went on to claim it was actually Taylor's idea to include that line in the song and blasted the public for "demonising real artists".

He continued:

However, in a previous statement, Taylor's representative insists the phone call Kanye made was about the Blank Space hitmaker promoting the track on her social media accounts.

They said: "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single Famous on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"
