Kanye West is becoming more and more of a clever parody of himself every day, isn’t he? Not content with marrying the most famous woman in the world or announcing his intention to run for president, we wouldn’t be surprised if one day Yeezy decides to leave his corporeal form and exist instead as a miasma of celestial cells.

But one thing’s for sure: before he does that, he’s going to have EXCELLENT hair. heat has learned that Kanye spends a whopping £120,000 a YEAR on getting his hair done. Where did we learn that? We learned that from Rihanna’s dad, obvs.

Yep, Ri-Ri’s pop Ronald Fenty explained how, when he spent a month on tour with Kanye and his daughter in 2010, Kanye had a haircut every day.

HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE HAIR, THIS IS MADNESS

“It’s crazy – he pays his barber $500 (£327) a time. I don’t understand how that much hair gets taken off. Kanye just loves the fresh look,” Ronald added.

We even tracked down the owner of those god-touching clippers, Ibn Jasper, who first met Kanye in Chicago 20 years ago.

“He asked me to move to New York City and I told him, ‘When you can pay me what I make in my shop, I’ll move’,” Ibn told us.

Oh, and if you see any particularly hairy men wondering around LA, don’t worry – that’ll just be Kanye before his pre-breakfast haircut.
