Kanye West REALLY wants $1 billion from Mark Zuckerberg

Kanye West

Kanye West has publicly asked Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1bn (£700m) into Kanye West ideas.

He take his money, when he's a need. Yeah, he's a trifling friend indeed.

In a series of tweets Kanye begs the co-founder of Facebook for help because he doesn't have "enough resources" to create what he "really can".

It comes after he claimed to have a personal debt of $53m (£36m). Yes, that's FIFTY THREE MILLION DOLLARS.

It wasn't the best way to start a friendship. He didn't even say happy birthday - which isn't actually until May anyway.

Newsbeat has contacted Facebook to find out if Kanye really is Mark Zuckerberg's favourite artist but they say they have nothing to share.

Kanye is continuing to share though.

And just to make sure things are clear, Kanye wanted Mark to 100% know he was asking for help.

You think he would have used Facebook to ask the co-founder of Facebook for money, and not Twitter.

But no.

It's all because Kanye thinks he can make the world a better place.

He also thinks tech companies in San Francisco should donate money to him rather than African school children.

Here's hoping Kanye is able to get donations for his 2020 campaign to be president of the United States a lot more easily.
