The 43-year-old rapper took to social media on Monday to praise the reality star and entrepreneur after she confirmed she was selling a 20% stake of her KKW Beauty line to beauty giant Coty Inc. for $200 million. The sale reportedly makes the mom of four a billionaire.
“I am so proud of my beautiful wife Kim Kardashian West for officially becoming a billionaire,” Kanye tweeted. “You’ve weathered the craziest storms and now God is shining on you and our family… So blessed this is still life… So I made you this still life… We love you so much.”
The post was accompanied by a photo of the “still life” Kanye referred to — an arrangement of fruit and flowers.

The sale is said to make Kim, 39, the richest member of her family, overtaking sister Kylie Jenner, who sold a 51% share of her business, Kylie Cosmetics — also to Coty — in January.
Kim’s new status comes with a new look — she took to social media over the weekend to reveal her bold new red hair!
“You guys, I dyed my hair red. Do you love it,” she asked followers on her Instagram story.
Meanwhile, Kanye is preparing for a new musical chapter, teasing his forthcoming record, God’s Country, on Monday.
The musician shared a 10-second clip of what appeared to be the forthcoming music video for a new song titled “Wash Us in the Blood.” He indicated the video will drop Tuesday.
God’s Country is the follow-up to West’s 2019 album, Jesus Is King, and the Sunday Service Choir’s 19-track album Jesus Is Born.
