Kanye West spent “nearly all his money” on new furniture – then decided he hated it all.
Kanye West spent $30,000 on a couch – and put it into storage.
The 39-year-old rapper reportedly left wife Kim Kardashian West furious after spending “nearly all his money” on furniture for their home in Calabasas, California, only to tell interior designer Sandy Gallin he hated the expensive items he’d handpicked for the abode.
A source told the New York Post newspaper’s Page Six column: “Kanye walked into the house, decided he hated all the furniture brought in by Gallin, and demanded it be returned to the vendors.
“But they refused to take it back, so he took it all out and threw it into storage.
“He then spent a fortune on a new set of furniture.”
Kanye has now hired Axel Vervoordt to work on their house, but his 36-year-old wife – who suffered a terrifying ordeal when she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last month – is growing increasingly frustrated with the delays.
The source added: “Kanye spends so much money and he’s holding everything up. The house still isn’t ready. Kim just wants to be settled at home, especially after everything that happened in Paris.”
It has also been claimed the Yeezy designer is infuriating people in the fashion world with his constant quest for better advice and his abrasive manner.
The source said: “He’s a wreck! Everyone in the fashion business thinks he’s crazy. He’ll start taking advice from someone successful, stop listening 15 minutes later, and then move on to someone else. He constantly fights with everyone. He’s even fighting with Adidas.”
However, another insider insisted the ‘Famous’ hitmaker – who has children North, 10 months, and Saint, three, with his spouse – is respected by the influential figures who matter most.
A friend said: “To say the fashion industry hates him is totally false. His friends in fashion include the most influential powerful people in the business. Anna [Wintour], Carine [Roitfeld], Demna [Gvasalia], Riccardo [Tisci], Balmain, on and on and on. Bernard Arnault. A handful of bitter fashion writers try to take him down all the time.”
