Kanye West has shared a touching tribute to his wife Kim Kardashian, after she finally reached billionaire status.
The 39-year-old’s company KKW Beauty was valued at $1 billion this week, after she sold 20% of her business to Coty Inc for $200 million.
After the news hit headlines, Kanye, who was named a billionaire by Forbes magazine back in April, took to Twitter to congratulate his wife.
Sharing a still life image of flowers and vegetables, Kanye wrote: “I am so proud of my beautiful wife Kim Kardashian West for officially becoming a billionaire.”

“You’ve weathered the craziest storms and now God is shining on you and our family,” he continued.
“So blessed this is still life, So I made you this still life.”
“We love you so much,” he added.
Kim’s three-year-old beauty business was valued at $1 billion after Coty Inc bought a 20% stake in the company.
It is set to be a long-term partnership in order to expand the business worldwide.
The news comes after Kim’s younger sister Kylie Jenner sold 51% of her company Kylie Cosmetics to Coty last year for $600 million.
At the time, the 22-year-old was officially declared a billionaire by Forbes, but the magazine later stripped her title after they accused her of inflating her wealth.
