Kanye West’s Financial Disclosures From Failed Presidential Campaign Denied After He Reportedly Claimed He Had No Knowledge Of Kim Kardashian’s Assets & Income
The drama over Kanye West’s run for president continues months later.
After spending more than $12 million on his failed presidential campaign, Kanye West‘s disclosure of his campaign-related finances has been rejected by the Office of Government Ethics.
The Office of Government Ethics (OGE) has not specified the reason behind its refusal to certify Kanye West‘s financial disclosures. However, a group called the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) has revealed that the denial is likely as a result of Kanye West failing to provide information on Kim Kardashian‘s assets.
Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye earlier this year after six years of marriage.
Kanye reportedly claimed to have no knowledge of his soon-to-be ex-wife’s assets or financial income information. Additionally, it is speculated that he falsely claimed he was exempt from providing this information–landing him in even more hot water.
There is indeed an exemption form available for people who have no knowledge of their partner’s finances. However, the publicly available information regarding both celebrities’ individual net worth and assets leads to speculation regarding the validity of this exemption in the case of Kanye and Kim Kardashian
A statement regarding the OGE’s decision is on CREW’s website:
“By refusing to certify it, OGE sends a message that it does not believe that West is in compliance with the law.”
