While millions of people become unemployed and a recession looms amid a global pandemic, Kim Kardashian just reportedly became a billionaire after selling a stake in her beauty empire.

Coty – a global beauty company with big brands like COVERGIRL, Max Factor, Rimmel, Clairol and Nautica – struck a deal with the reality TV show star to buy 20 per cent of her KKW brand for a total of $200m (£163m).

This sale reportedly pushed West into billionaire status. And her husband, Kanye West, couldn’t be prouder.

The rapper took to Twitter on Monday evening to heap his praise on his billionaire wife and share a… peculiar photo:

We have so many questions: Why a giant green tomato? Or a cherry tomato? And what’s with the combination of flowers?

Some people started relentlessly mocking West’s attempt at still life art:

While others implored West to read the room:

Kim Kardashian went for a more conventional celebration (by her standards) of her newfound billionaire status.

Posting a photo of herself on Monday, she said she was “blessed and forever grateful” after signing the multimillion dollar deal:

Congrats Kim but as your sister pointed out after you lost your diamond earring in the ocean in 2011:

“Kim, there’s people (sic) that are dying.”
