Ye discussed his financial state on a Monday night episode of the right-wing podcast “Timcast IRL,” which also included the alt-right leader Milo Yiannopoulos and the white nationalist Nick Fuentes.
A $75 million hold was reportedly placed on four of Ye’s accounts by the IRS. Formerly known as Kanye West, the musician claimed to owe $50 million in taxes. He is thought to be worth around $400 million, which is a significant decrease for the former billionaire. Ye has generated controversy recently, especially after he launched into a string of antisemitic tirades in October. Adidas and Balenciaga broke relations with Ye, whose net worth was assessed by Forbes to be $400 million in late October, down from an earlier estimate of $1.5 billion.
