It’s been two years since Kanye West started his Sunday Service and has made quite an impact. Usually we don’t hear of celebrities being involved in church but he’s brought out plenty of big names over the years to include Justin Bieber, Brad Pitt, Idris Elba, DMX, Katy Perry, Courtney Love and more. We’ll add if he can bring Courtney Love of all people in church, he’s doing something right.
Well now West has officially registered his Sunday Service as a nonprofit and has been granted tax exempt status. The paperwork was filed with California’s Secretary of State back on March 23rd, 2021. It also reveals he’ll be using his $2.2 million Calabasas ranch as the church HQ. He’s using non-profit expert attorney Karl F. Mill to help with the process. Things he won’t be allowed to do will consist of “Participat[ing] in, or interven[ing] in (including the publication or distribution of statements), any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office.”
And when his Calabasas estate isn’t in use as a church, it looks like he’s probably going to be spending time there with Russian supermodel Irina Shayk. The two have been seeing each other while Kanye’s been going through his divorce with Kim Kardashian. Her ex Bradley Cooper recently said he was concerned the model might get caught up in the middle of his controversies. Well isn’t that the risk and thrill of dating Kanye West? The two who first met when he cast her for his 2010 Power music video seemed to have had their fate solidified as Kanye reportedly kept tabs on her over the years.
As for how Kim’s been taking this, it’s also been reported that she’s “playing it cool, putting the word out that she’s not bothered in the least by Kanye’s new romance,” but “Behind the scenes, she’s looking at the ‘Power’ video and lyrics that mention Irina, and her strutting her stuff in his fashion show when she and Kanye were a full-on couple,”
Well we certainly hope the best for Kanye and his new love interest and hopefully between her and church she can keep him grounded to where some of his previous outbursts will be brought to a minimum. So far, letting him walk around in the blazing heat with a full on face mask seems to indicate she’s not doing such a good job at that just yet.
