Photos Show Kanye West Helping Out Homeless Veteran On Side Of Road
Photos show Kanye West appearing to help out a homeless veteran, who had been standing on the road holding a sign that said 'ANYTHING HELPS'.
The rapper was spotted climbing out of his black Lamborghini Urus (the price of which starts at $209,000/£160,000) on a Calabasas freeway exit in California on Wednesday.
While it is not known exactly what happened or what was said during the exchange, the Daily Mail reports that the 42-year-old musician ordered his bodyguard to give the serviceman some money.
The anonymous man's sign simply read: "VETERAN ON THE ROAD - ANYTHING HELPS."
West recently announced that he was a 'born again Christian' and that this was the inspiration behind his new gospel-influenced album and accompanying IMAX film Jesus Is King.
In one track, 'Selah', he even compares himself to a religious patriarch, rapping: "Before the flood, people judge / They did the same thing to Noah."
In another, 'God Is', he says: "Every time I look up, I see God's faithfulness / And it shows just how much / He is miraculous."

Speaking to pastor Joel Osteen back in November, West said: "I know God's been calling me for a long time and the devil has been distracting me for a long time."
He continued: "All of that arrogance, and confidence and cockiness that y'all seen me use before god is now using for him because every time I stand up I feel that I'm standing up and drawing a line in the sand and saying I'm here in service to god and no weapons armed against me shall prosper.
"It's like the devil stole all the good producers, all the good musicians, all the good artists, all the good designers, all the good business people, and said, 'You gotta come over and work for me'.
"And now the trend, the shift, is going to change. Jesus has won the victory. Now the greatest artist God ever created is now working for him."
While many people within the Christian faith have welcomed the singer with open arms, not everyone is thrilled with his new angle.
Defending West, renowned gospel singer and songwriter Richard Smallwood told TIME: "The traditional Christian church has always frowned upon anything that is new and innovative.
"He's singing about Jesus Christ and God - and that, to me, is the bottom line."
