Far-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos hit rapper Kanye West with a $116,000 bill for campaign consulting, TMZ reports.
Milo, who served as an informal campaign manager on Ye’s purported 2024 presidential campaign, sent the rapper an invoice for $116,000 on December 1, according to the report.
Sources told the outlet that Ye and Milo never had a financial agreement for the extremist to serve as a campaign advisor.
Other members of the purported campaign, including white nationalist Nick Fuentes and Jan. 6 rally organizer Ali Alexander, have worked as volunteers, according to the report.
Ye said on Monday that he had replaced Milo with Alexander.
Yiannopoulos was fired from the campaign amid infighting, The Daily Beast reported on Monday, though he claimed that the decision to split was mutual.
“Ye and I have come to the mutual conclusion that I should step away from his political team,” he said. “I will continue to pray for Ye and all his endeavors.”
The report alleged that Milo was ousted after trying to “move against” Fuentes, which he denied.
“Any suggestion that I tried to get anyone fired is false—especially not people I brought in myself, who owe me their gratitude, loyalty, and respect,” he told the outlet.
“I’m not in the least bit drawn in by perks and private jets,” he added. “Maybe the others are.”
Milo claims he set up Trump dinner:
The ouster came days after Ye made a series of antisemitic remarks shortly after dining with Fuentes and former President Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago.
Milo told NBC News that he orchestrated Fuentes’ appearance at the dinner to hurt Trump.
“I wanted to show Trump the kind of talent that he’s missing out on by allowing his terrible handlers to dictate who he can and can’t hang out with,” he told the outlet. “I also wanted to send a message to Trump that he has systematically repeatedly neglected, ignored, abused the people who love him the most, the people who put him in office, and that kind of behavior comes back to bite you in the end.”
Milo added that he arranged the dinner “just to make Trump’s life miserable.”
