A Forbes headline from earlier this year declared that "Kanye West is now officially a billionaire (and he really wants the world to know)." This was further backed up by the magazine's new "The Celebrity 100" list it unveiled today (June 4), placing West as the highest-paid musician in the world and the second-highest paid celebrity. (Notably, he placed only below his family member Kylie Jenner.)

West, for his part, has stayed publicly quiet about the accolade on social media, where he's also chosen not to weigh in on the ongoing protests against police violence and the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor at the hands of police, as well as the killings of Ahmaud Arbery and more Black men and women. But according to new reports, West has reportedly chosen to act: He's donated $2 million to support the families of Floyd, Taylor, and Arbery.
