Kanye West celebrated Kim Kardashian's newfound billionaire status in the most Kanye West way possible - with a bizarre tribute that fans can't quite understand.
ICYMI, BBC report Coty is eyeing up a 20% stake in KKW Beauty, which will be worth $200m (£160m) deal - meaning they value Kim's brand at $1bn (£800m).
The deal is set to close later this year, with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star saying of the business deal: "This relationship will allow me to focus on the creative elements that I’m so passionate about while benefiting from the incredible resources of Coty, and launching my products around the world."
Coty, meanwhile, added on Instagram: "We are thrilled to welcome one of the most influential beauty icons to the Coty family: @kimkardashian West! 😍 With Kim’s influence and our deep expertise in prestige beauty we will build a beauty powerhouse and enter new beauty categories together. #Coty #CotyInc #Beauty"
As for Kanye? He took to Twitter to congratulation his wife on her business move, with a bizarre tribute that involved a photo of some vegetables. Are we missing something?
I am so proud of my beautiful wife Kim Kardashian West for officially becoming a billionaire— ye (@kanyewest) June 30, 2020
You’ve weathered the craziest storms and now God is shining on you and our family
So blessed this is still life
So I made you this still life
We love you so much pic.twitter.com/Vvtgzodnah
The sentimental message read:
"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. So blessed this is still life. So I made you this still life. We love you so much."
And while there's no denying how sweet the tribute is, fans are trolling the rapper for the choice of picture. "Kanye that’s a bell pepper not your wife," one person wrote, while another added, "Kim looks a bit different."

Whatever the meaning of the fruit (family representation, maybe?), Kanye's obviously very proud of his wife.
