Kanye West And Kim Kardashian Donate Nine Million Naira To Personal Photographer
Celebrity couple, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have forked out a little over nine million naira ($25,000) to assist the family of Marcus Hyde, their personal photographer who was injured in a car accident.
Hyde has worked with the power couple around the world and was involved in a horrific accident when his Mercedes plunged over the side of a ravine in Malibu last month. Hyde sustained serious head injuries and has remained in a fight for his life ever since.
A GoFundMe was recently started for Hyde and his family to help with medical costs as the photographer remains hospitalised.
It is gathered that yesterday, November 28th, Kim and Kanye pledged the money to the cause and only made their contribution public in hopes it will bring more attention to the page, and raise more money. The fundraiser originally had a goal of 3.6 million naira ($10k) so their donation will be a massive help.
Just before the crash, Hyde travelled with the family on their trip to Bali where he shot pics of the Kardashian and Jenner sisters in their Victoria’s Secret angel wings and was by Kanye’s side during his album release in Wyoming.
It is also learnt that Hyde had a female passenger in the vehicle with him during the accident but she was released from the hospital a short time later.
