In the wake of releasing his highly-anticipated his new album, The Life of Pablo, Kanye West revealed to his 18.7 million Twitter followers that he’s $53 million in personal debt. He took to Twitter on Saturday night (Feb. 13, 2016) right before heading on stage for his SNL performance to share the unusual news. “I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt,” he wrote. “Please pray we overcome…This is my true heart.”

While he didn’t explain how the debt was amassed, it seems almost unlikely since his net worth is estimated at over $100 million, not counting Kim Kardashian’s fortune. However, the rapper has previously admitted to spending a lot of money on his Yeezy line.
Following his “confession,” West even tweeted to Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg. “Invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas,” he wrote, before adding, “after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.”
