Kanye West turned down a $500,000-per-show deal for a Las Vegas residency.
The ‘Stronger’ hitmaker could have been the highest-earning entertainer in the gambling capital, but shunned an approach by The Axis at Planet Hollywood, who offered him a huge deal for just nine days work.
According to TMZ, the venue wanted Kanye to perform three shows a week for three weeks but he turned them down, though it is not clear why.
The staggering offer would have put him ahead of Vegas’ current top earners, Celine Dion, who earns $476,000 per show.
If Kanye had agreed the deal, one person who would have been in the audience is his daughter as Kim recently revealed the youngster is a fan of the ‘Bound 2’ star’s music.
She said: “I put on these lullabies for her. I put on pop music, Kanye’s music. I have a whole iPod with everything all set up for her.”
