Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband Kanye West had all his real teeth pulled out to install a unique “fake set” at a huge total cost, and was immediately exposed for being in debt
On the evening of January 17 (US time), Kanye West posted on Instagram Story a picture of his newly replaced metal dentures. He likened himself to the famous villain Jaws, appearing in two James Bond films, The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979).
According to Daily Mail, the false teeth were designed by the male rapper himself and made of titanium. The source revealed that this metal is more expensive than diamonds, with a total cost rumored to be $850,000.
Sources confirm that ex-husband Kim Kardashian had all his teeth removed to install a unique “dental set”. This process was performed by Dr. Thomas Connelly and Naoki Hayashi, master dental technicians known as the “fathers of diamond dentistry”, in Beverly Hills (California, USA).
“Ye (Kanye West’s new stage name) was a pleasure to work with every step of the process. His vision for unique artistic design goes beyond the advancement of dentistry. The combination of vision That, with dental science, has created a majestic new look,” Connelly shared with Daily Mail.
However, in an interview with Complex, Connelly denied that Kanye had all his natural teeth pulled out: “He didn’t pull any teeth. He still has a full set of teeth. Healthy and happy.”
Kanye West has not commented on the installation of dentures, nor the information about having all his real teeth extracted.
While West and Connelly seemed proud of their achievements, many netizens mocked the Grammy winner on online forums: “He’s still an idiot, more money than brains! “, “I don’t believe Kanye West went through that. It looks like he covered his teeth with gum wrappers”, “This is not true”, “He really needs help”, “His mental health is worse than Britney Spears”…
This is not the first time Kanye West designed his own teeth. In 2010, he announced on The Ellen Degeneres Show that he had his lower teeth extracted and replaced with diamonds.
“I just think diamonds are cooler. That’s what rock stars are supposed to do,” he explained.
However, rapper 7X admitted that he has to regularly go to the dentist to maintain his unique teeth.
He later explained to Vanity Fair that the reason he chose to have his tooth extracted instead of putting jewelry on it was because he didn’t want to have to constantly take it out.
Not only Kanye, some other members of his family also have a passion for sparkling teeth.
In June 2023, Saint’s son (9 years old) showed off his teeth decorated with the metal Louis Vuitton logo on social networks. Previously, Kim also wore dental jewelry made of opal (cat’s eye jade) and diamonds.
Amid rumors of spending 20 billion on dental work, Kanye West was suddenly exposed as having debt. Specifically, according to the media, some sources recently revealed that this male singer owes more than 1 million dollars (more than 24 billion VND) in unpaid taxes. Not only that, Kanye Wes’ fashion company has four tax liens being filed against the company in the past three years for unpaid business taxes.
Records show that he still owes an additional 101,093 USD (more than 2 billion VND) in property taxes for the two houses that the male artist jointly owns with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian. The total tax bill amounted to more than $1 million. If Kanye West does not pay this bill immediately, he will face increasing penalties.
Recently, Kanye West has been facing too many incidents that have caused the singer’s entire career to stagnate. Not only in music, the male singer is also entangled in countless noises surrounding his personal life. After many years of “bombarding” the music industry, Kanye West is now facing a fierce boycott from the online community.
