Kanye West is no stranger to controversy, some of which is continuing to causing legal troubles for the rapper to this day. The rapper announced his presidential bid in 2020 that failed terribly. The campaign runners have more terrible news for Ye.

According to TMZ, Kanye 2020 claims they fell victim to a fraud scheme where thousands allotted for the campaign were used to pay off an unidentified person’s credit card bills.

“Kanye 2020 told the Federal Election Commission someone unaffiliated with the campaign accessed the committee’s bank account, swiping $3,999 to pay off their own credit card bills.

“In a letter fired off Tuesday to the FEC, and obtained by TMZ, Kanye 2020 says an investigation determined someone accessed the account three times between December and February, and the campaign was unable to get the money back from the First Bank of Wyoming.

“The FEC previously flagged the transactions and Kanye’s campaign took a look and is now claiming they were the victim here. There doesn’t appear to have been an arrest made yet, and it appears the FEC is working to gather more info.”

Ye famously launched his disastrous presidential campaign late in the game. He did manage to get on the ballot in a handful of states, but ended up with only 66,636 votes. Keep reading Thirsty for more!
