The insider told the publication that he rarely stays in the same place for more than a few days and that he spends money like it’s nothing including footing the bill for his Yeezy fashion show in Paris earlier this month.
He definitely has the capital to spend as his net worth is an estimated $4billion according to Celebrity Net Worth.
TMZ also notes that their insider claims that the All Of The Lights hitmaker has made some bold business decisions including firing Shervin Pishevar from Yeezy in addition to other advisors and publicists.
During a recent interview on Drink Champs, Ye said that he had recently purchased a $50million penthouse which is another addition to his already packed real estate portfolio.

Kanye already owns many multi-million dollar properties including one notably across the street from estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
In December 2021, the Yeezy founder – who shares four children with his 41-year-old ex – bought a 3651 square-foot, 5-bedroom home in LA’s exclusive Hidden Hills for $4.5which he still has not lived in.
Months earlier in September 2021, he dropped a whopping $57.3million on a sprawling beachside home in Malibu in an off-market deal.
The stunning property which looks like a piece of art was designed by Japanese Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando and was built by Marmol Radziner.

Earlier this week, Kanye launched into another anti-Semitic rant as he discussed a sex story involving his estranged wife Kimand her ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson.
The rapper shocked fans last week when he tweeted that he was going to ‘go death con 3 on Jewish people…’ which resulted in him being banned from the microblogging app.
Yet he doubled down on his view during an interview on Drink Champs as he claimed that Kim discussing her sex life with Pete alluded to Jewish Zionist practice.
West was referring to a sceneon the The Kardashians, in which Kim, 41, spoke about how she slept with Pete, 28, in front of a fireplace in tribute to her grandmother.

In his rant, West told hosts N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN: ‘We Jew so I can’t be anti-Semite. First of all, I need my stadiums back. The 78 media outlets that called me an “abuser” when I was trying to get… Pete Davidson away from my kids that was tattooing my kids’ names on him, Skete.
‘Kim is a Christian – on TMZ, I just saw it yesterday, it said, “Pete Davidson and Kim had sex by the fireplace to honor they grandmother,”‘ he said.
‘It’s Jewish Zionists that’s about that life, that’s telling this Christian woman that has four black children to put that out as a message in the media.’
He continued: ‘So when I drive by and I see the Hulu ads and I see the JP [Morgan Chase] ads, I’m gonna let y’all know right now, the devil is a defeated foe – you can’t poison me.’
Kardashian filed from divorce from West in February of 2021, and the former couple are parents of four children: North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.

Prior to their split, Kim opened up about one of their sexual encounters while speaking with her grandmother on her reality show.
She said: ‘You know what’s so crazy? Pete and I were staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel last weekend and we were sitting in front of the fireplace just talking for hours.
‘I was like, “My grandma told me that you really live life when you have sex in front of the fireplace. And so, we had sex in front of the fireplace in honor of you. I know that’s probably creepy.”‘

West’s vitriolic message against Jewish people was his second in as many weeks, as last week he tweeted: ‘I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE … The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also … you guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.’
In the controversial interview, West also said ‘the Jewish media blocked me out’ after a previous interview with a separate outlet was not aired; and that ‘Jewish people control the Black voice.’
West said he spoke without fear of harming his professional or personal life, as he said he has already been subject to numerous consequences.
‘Y’all already f****d with me so much you already Black Mirrored me; you already made people think I’m crazy, you already took my family away, you already separated all my friends. I don’t got no celebrity friends.’
West also took aim at talk show host Trevor Noah, who has past been critical of his behavior amid a public series of outbursts aimed at Kardashian and Davidson earlier this year.
‘Trevor Noah, not even from America, he just looks Black right?’ West said. ‘Gonna say, yo, Kim it’s gonna get dangerous, he putting all that “He so crazy, he’s so OJ.” Nori just wants the family back together, I just want the family back together.’
Elsewhere during the interview, West said: ‘Jewish people have owned the black voice. Whether it’s through us wearing a Ralph Lauren shirt, or it’s all of us being signed to a record label, or having a Jewish manager, or being signed to a Jewish basketball team, or doing a movie on a Jewish platform like Disney.’

He continued: ‘I respect what the Jewish people have done and how they brought their people together. You know they came into money through the lawyers. After Wall Street, when all of the Catholics, they wouldn’t divorce people, so the Jewish people came in they were willing to divorce people and that’s when they came into their money.’
West said that he and other black people are the ‘darker Jews’ as they are part of the 12 lost tribes of Israel. ‘We’re Jewish also. We’re from Africa also. We’re the blood of Christ. We’re not just black,’ he went on.
The rapper said that venture capitalist Ben Horowitz once called him to complain that Jay-Z was giving away ‘Jewish business secrets.’

Last week , the Holocaust Museum in Los Angeles invited the Chicago rapper to visit their exhibitions. The museum said in an Instagram post: ‘Words matter and words have consequences Ye. We urge you to come visit us at Holocaust Museum LA to understand just how words can incite horrific violence and genocides.
The post continued: ‘The Holocaust started with only words that sadly begat stereotypes, racial and religious tropes and blaming others and led to the murder of six million Jews.’
According to the American Jewish Council, Jewish people are the targets of 60 percent of religious hate crimes in America despite making up two percent of the population.
