The final report from the Federal Election Commission says the 43-year-old contributed nearly $ 12.5 million in his personal finances for his run.

In total, he raised $ 14.5 million during the election cycle that began on July 4, 2020 during his infamous South Carolina political rally that collapsed on stage.

However, his offer ended just four months later, and $ 1.3 million was still in the bank. The numbers spent on the campaign total over $ 13.2 million.

Over 3,000 people have contributed $ 2 million as government records specify exactly where the money is going.

The Yeezy designer spent $ 7.5 million on the cost of accessing ballot papers, and also paid out large sums on online advertising, videos, legal bills and Kanye 2020 apparel.

Since Kanye only received 66,000 across the country, the amount spent means he paid more than $ 200 for each vote received.

Due to his late announcement that he threw his hat in the race, Kanye qualified to run in just a few states.

It ran under the “birthday party” – a platform that has strong Christian and fiscal conservative views and focuses on the arts and criminal justice reform.

After failing on election night in November, the designer tweeted a picture teasing a “Kanye 2024” run.

The move is said to have “cost Kanye her marriage” after a series of explosive outbursts.

Yeezus made a series of wild allegations against Kim and her family – including as “white supremacists” – on Twitter and during a presidential rally in July.

Kanye then burst into tears when he claimed at the controversial rally that Kim was considering aborting her oldest child, North.

Following news of their official split last week, a source told PEOPLE that the Grammy winner believes his attempt to become president resulted in the end of their marriage.

According to an insider, Kanye “texted people” and “talked things through”.

The source said “he’s in this place of ‘if only'” and added, “‘If only I had, if only I hadn’t.’ He processes things. “

They continued, “He believes the presidential campaign was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

“Before that there was hope. After that, there was none. It cost him his marriage.”

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star filed for divorce from Kanye last Friday.
