Kanye Controls His Mom's Benjamins

5/29/2008 3:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West now has the control over his late mother Donda's scratch, and can spend it where he sees fit.

TMZ was in an LA court this morning where a judge granted a petition to make Kanye and Shawn Gee (West's money guy) co-executors of Donda's estate. Which means they now control her cash, which it turns out, is less than $250,000.

Donda died without a will.

just wondering    

U really need to do a will if u have ANY assets, plus, every think abt what happens to ur kids if u don't have one and both parents have a tragedy?, well family fights over custody. You can do one for under $200 and have peace of mind. Think abt it.

Annoyed.    

only $250,000?

Maybe Kanye put her money in his account for safe keeping?

or maybe he gave her spending money?

wasn't she his manager? wouldn't she have more money...

well since she was getting "work" done, I guess that adds up.


RIP Donda

I don't want to speak ill of the dead, but maybe she should have gotten her teeth fixed before any plastic surgery.
