The record-producer and fashion designer wrote he was immensely proud of his 39-year-old reality star wife for “weathering the craziest storms”.
The artist also shared an image of a green tomato, a tomatillo, a cherry tomato, some lavender and other flowers, arranged on the ground.

Kanye West also tweeted to about his upcoming album “God's country”.
West shared a 10-second tease of his upcoming video from his song “Wash Us In The Blood”, which will be the first music he’s released since 2019 when he delivered his Jesus Is King album and his Sunday Service Choir's Jesus Is Born album.
Many netizens, however, were unimpressed with the post applauding Kim Kardshian West’s ascent to the billionaire ranking, slamming the couple for flaunting their wealth and displaying a “tone deaf” social media presence.
Accumulating wealth isn’t the biggest accomplishment, & I thought u & @KimKardashian were evolved enough to know that. Furthermore, real rich people have enough tact to nevertheless brag about or disclose the actual sum of their worth.— Polly Elizabeth (@PollyPocketSexy) June 30, 2020
Friendly reminder that billionaires only exist by hoarding generational wealth, something only accomplished by sacrificing ethical sourcing, poor labour standards, and income inequality. Capitalism at its finest.— Nathan (@SillyGooseTimes) June 30, 2020

This gets cornier everytime I see it. That dude has gone nowhere in life. Yet Kim is 100x more successful— YZY 🏄🏽♂️ (@yeezydotcom) June 30, 2020
It’s sad he values money in this way, and it’s not like Kim has done anything interesting to earn the money anyway. It’s earned off literal garbage.— Tiger Backwoods (@TommyAvalanche) June 30, 2020
Money can’t buy you class. This tweet is a perfect example. Disgusting.— ASIE CT (@AsieCt) June 30, 2020
Cool dude. 45 million Americans are unemployed right now— Joe Davis (@ByJoeDavis) June 30, 2020
Others congratulated the celebrity couple on their achievement.
