Kanye West has billions of dollars, so dropping $275,000 on something frivolous doesn’t make much of a dent in his bank account. According to Page Six, the 44-year-old Hip Hop mogul recently purchased an “extremely rare” Birkin bag for his purported girlfriend Chaney Jones, who is listed as the bag’s owner online.
Sources say Ye bought the Hermès piece from a pop-up event by Privé Porter, a luxury bag specialist based in Miami. The bag features silver metallic Chèvre leather with palladium hardware. Although Jones was in Houston when the bag arrived, she FaceTimed Kanye on Tuesday (March 29) so he could watch her open it.
Kanye West gifted his ex-wife Kim Kardashian with a Birkin 40 bag that was customized with a George Condo painting in 2013. Nearly 10 years later, Kanye surprised his former fling Julia Fox and four of her friends with Birkin 25s for her 32nd birthday, all sourced by Michelle Lovelace.
Ye started stepping out with Jones as his divorce from Kim Kardashian was being finalized, and she immediately drew comparisons to Ye’s now ex-wife. He was first spotted with the Instagram model at his Donda 2 listening party at Nobu in Malibu, California in February, which was also attended by Drake, Future, Travis Scott and Baby Keem, among others.
