After digitally battling with Wiz Khalifa, claiming responsibility for Taylor Swift 's fame, asking Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion in his ideas all while dropping a new album and fashion line, it's safe to say Kanye West has had quite the whirlwind month.

Following the rapper's most recent obscure antics on social media—particularly his requests for other people's money "to bring more beautiful ideas to the world"—reports inspired by the tweets have popped up alleging the Grammy winner is millions upon millions of dollars in debt.

"If I spent my money on my ideas I could not afford to take care of my family," he told fans on Twitter. "I am in a place that so many artists end up." 

To add fuel to the fire, outlets also speculate that his Twitter rants are a matter of contention between him and his wife, Kim Kardashian

According to a source close to the couple, the rants are anything but angering.  

"Kim isn't mad at Kanye. She thinks all the stories about his money problems are so funny because it's all kind of inaccurate," the insider shared. "Kanye laughs and thinks it's funny when he tweets and doesn't care what people say."

As for the paper in the bank, while the father of two's current financial standing is still to be confirmed, West does admittedly get flowery with the English language.

"I know I confuse you guys sometimes but please bare with me," he tweeted to his fans while trying to explain his project-funding process. 

"It's not debt per se," the insider added. "He always invests in himself and that's where that [53 million] number came from."

Debt per se? Yes, Yeezy, you're still confusing us.
