“Superstar family … we the new Jacksons,” Kanye West rapped about he and his in-laws on the song “Highlights” from his latest album, The Life of Pablo.

It must be nice when your wife is also a multimillionaire and can help you clear up tens of millions in debt.

A recent tweet by Kim Kardashian

West has many believing that the reality star-turned-business mogul has taken care of West’s alleged personal debt of $53 million. The 35-year-old mother of two tweeted out that she was “busy cashing (her) 80 million video game check & transferring $53 million into (their) joint account.”

Kardashian-West’s tweet comes just shy of a month since West announced via Twitter that he was $53 million in debt due to his fashion endeavors. He then followed his confession with a plea to Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, to invest $1 billion dollars in his ideas that he feels will change the world. Sympathetic fans even went so far as to create a GoFundMe page to help West pay off his debt.

KimmyCakes is certainly in position to lend her hubby a hand after seeing a healthy return on her recent forays into the world of gaming. Her role-playing game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, reportedly hauled in over $50 million in revenue less than four months after its release. Additionally, her Kimoji app, released this past December, also did exceptionally well with Kanye bragging in his song “Facts” that the app, which allows users to download emojis based on her life, “shut down the app store” and “made a million a minute.”

Though much has been made of West’s alleged money issues after his most recent declaration of personal debt, some fans may recall that this isn’t the first time he’s hinted that he was in financial trouble.

Last year at the 2015 BET Honors West mentioned that he was $16 million in debt due to the overhead of his fashion line but the news failed to grab the attention of his tweets on the matter.

Nonetheless, it appears Yeezy’s money troubles are over and he is officially in the clear now, though thus far neither he nor wife have commented further on the matter.
