Forbes granted Kanye billionaire status earlier this year. However, the money mag only gave him a $1.3 billion net worth, which is a lot less than the $3 billion Ye claims.
Ye tried to similarly inflate his wife Kim Kardashian to billionaire status earlier this week when she sold a 20 percent stake in her company, KKW Beauty, to cosmetics giant Coty for $200 million, making KKW Beauty a billion-dollar company.

"I am so proud of my beautiful wife Kim Kardashian West for officially becoming a billionaire ," Kanye typed.
However, Forbes wasn't having that either, pointing out Kim only owns 72 percent of KKW and if you add $720 million to her previous net worth you have $900 million -- a lot, but not quite a billion.
Forbes has made a habit of checking the Kardashian Klan's 10 figure flexes. Last month, they stripped Kylie Jenner of the billionaire status they had previously granted her when they found some of the financial statements she had presented to them had been forged to make her seem richer than she really was.
