Kanye West ‘contributes $500K to Californian Fire Relief fund’ despite saving his $60m mansion by hiring private firefighters


The rapper who hired private firefighters to protect his $60million pound mansion during the California wildfires has reportedly donated $500,000 to the Californian Fire Relief fund.

This comes after the rapper contributed $150,000 to the heartbroken family of Chicago security guard, Jemel Roberson, who police shot dead after they mistook him as a shooter.

According to TMZ, Kim tells host Ellen DeGeneres, the couple had a ‘serious discussion’ on how to help the community, with Kanye coming up with a plan of action.

Kanye is said to have called up Adidas and his own Yeezy brand to build up donations, raising a staggering $500,000.

The publication also reported that his wife Kim Kardashian will further donate $200,000 to California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund and a $200,000 check to the California Fire Foundation.
