Money can’t buy Kanye West. The hip-hop superstar reportedly turned down a $4.5 million payday for nine days of work.
According to TMZ, Yeezy received an offer to perform three concerts a week for three weeks at the Axis at Planet Hollywood at a whopping $500,000 per show.
At that rate, he would have become the highest-paid entertainer on the Las Vegas strip, making more per show than Britney Spears, who earns $475,000 for her “Piece of Me” residency, and Celine Dion, who currently earns the most at $476,000.
Jennifer Lopez is also in talks to join her fellow divas in Sin City. She was reportedly offered $350,000 per show to perform 72 shows at Planet Hollywood over a one- or two-year period.
But ‘Ye doesn’t seem to have any regrets. He and Kim Kardashian were all smiles as they posed with Barry Bonds at Game 5 of the 2014 World Series at AT&T Park in San Francisco, the same stadium where Kanye proposed to his now-wife a year ago.
“#DateNight #WorldSeries #IHaventBeenBackHereSinceISaidYes,” said Kim.
