Kanye West wrote a sweet message to wife Kim Kardashian West on Monday.

After news that the reality star turned beauty mogul’s KKW Beauty had sold a 20 per cent stake to Coty, the value of her business rose to $1 billion.

Kanye took to Twitter to honour the mother of four, writing: "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."

He added: "So blessed this is still life. So I made you this still life," with a photo of flowers and peppers.


Of course, fans had a field day with the post. While some interpreted the still life to show "the fruits of her labour", others named each object after a member of the family.

One fan wrote: "I may be reading way too far into it. But I wonder if the left side is more purposefully masculine and the right side more purposefully feminine? As Kim and Kanye are now side by side as billionaires. Or it’s just fruits, flowers, and vegetable."

Another said: "I get so excited when I see the notification and turns out he's just messing with some tomatoes and flowers bruh."
