celebrity news

Kanye West has congratulated wife Kim Kardashian on “becoming a billionaire” after it was announced she was selling a stake in her beauty brand for 200 million dollars (about £162 million).

The deal, which will see US cosmetics giant Coty Inc get a 20% stake in Kardashian’s KKW Beauty, values the reality TV star’s three-year-old business at one billion dollars.

It is the second agreement the company has struck with the famous family, after buying more than half of Kylie Jenner’s makeup line.

Forbes magazine in April declared Kanye West a billionaire and shared his admiration for his mate achieving the same status by congratulating “my beautiful wife”.

He tweeted saying he was “so proud “of the mother of his four children, adding: “You’ve weathered the craziest storms and now God is shining on you and our family.”

West added a still life image made of flowers and vegetables, writing: “So blessed this is still life So I made you this still life We love you so much.”
