It Is Reported That Kanye West’s Presidential Campaign Paid Milo Yiannopoulos More Than $ 40,000.


Kanye West’s presidential campaign has reportedly paid more than $40,000 (£32,432) to former campaign manager Milo Yiannopoulos.

TMZ has reportedly obtained FEC documents—financial statements required to register candidates running for federal positions such as president—that disclose West’s spending on his 2024 bid for the White House [via HotNewHipHop]. According to the documents, West paid Yiannopoulos $40,000 for “campaign completion services,” while the alternative right-wing commentator allegedly received just under $10,000 for “domain transfer” (£8,107).

Yiannopoulos also claimed that West owed him $116,000 (£94,036) for consulting services. However, according to HotNewHipHop, sources close to West deny this, claiming that they never recorded this arrangement.

Back in November, West confirmed that Yiannopoulos was working on his presidential campaign, dubbed #YE2024. However, just a couple of weeks later, Yiannopoulos withdrew from the campaign. “We have come to a mutual conclusion that I should leave his political team. You are a genius whom I have come to love and respect. We remain friends. I will continue to pray for Ye and for all his endeavors,” he wrote on Telegram.

He denied that he was fired, insisting that his departure from the campaign was a mutual decision. However, it has been suggested that this happened as a result of West’s relationship with Nick Fuentes, a political columnist with white nationalist leanings.

The FEC also reported that Fuentes was paid $14,719 (£11,930) to reimburse his travel expenses.

Elsewhere, West is currently under investigation on assault charges after video footage reportedly showed him engaging in an altercation with a woman who was filming him. West allegedly knocked her phone out of her hands after she protested when he ordered her to put the phone down.
