Kim Kardashian is now part-owner of her husband’s Yeezy company, and she got this gift because she stayed loyal to him.
The reality star was an inaugural guest on Ashley Graham‘s Pretty Big Deal podcast Tuesday, where she discussed, among other things, how she became a co-owner of her husband’s apparel brand.
“For Mother’s Day, he’s like the cutest,” 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.’”
As expected, Kanye West didn’t feel so great about it.
“He’s like, ‘No, babe, I really don’t want you to do that,’” Kim explained. “Understandable, but that’s a lot of money.”
Kim turned down the offer, and West showed his appreciation two weeks later on Mother’s Day, when he sent Kardashian flowers and an envelope.
“So, I open the envelope, and it’s a million-dollar check,” Kim revealed. “And there was a note, saying, ‘Thank you for always supporting me and not posting.’”
She further added that in the envelope was a contract for her to be part owner of West’s company Yeezy. “To have my percentage. That was my Mother’s Day present,” Kardashian said.
Asked if she did cash the $1 million check, Kim replied remembered telling her mother Kris Jenner: “I was like, ‘You better believe I’m gonna cash this.”
Amazing story, don’t you think?
