Due to his current $50 million IRS debt, Kanye West revealed that he almost went to jail. Ye told host Tim Pool about his challenging financial situation during an interview for the Timcast IRL podcast on Monday, November 28, according to a report that was first published by Vibe.
The right-wing pundits Nick Fuentes and Milo Yiannopoulos shared the stage with the artist.
He said that his “finance men” had informed him that he would “have to pay a lot of taxes.”
The fashion designer stated, “I’m talking about literally finding out that they were attempting to throw me in prison this morning. But I discovered that they had frozen four of my accounts and placed a $75 million hold on them.
You owe a lot of taxes, they continued. I needed around six hours to figure out how much.
He estimated the amount at $50 million. West went on to say that he is not “the most financially savvy guy on the earth” and that he contacted “various CFOs” at his companies to inquire about his involvement in tax fraud. The rapper then confessed that he didn’t know “how to operate a firm.”
I got to truly learn how to operate a business, so now I’m having. With regards to my finances, I get to actually learn how to count,” Ye remarked. Like I didn’t even know where to put the money, I thought.
