Kanye West Needs More Than $4.5 Million To Perform In Vegas

He doesn't come cheap.

A Las Vegas residency is nothing to scoff at -- just look at Britney Spears, who's currently raking it in -- but for Kanye West, a few million just won't cut it.

According to TMZ, Mr. West was offered $4.5 million to perform in Las Vegas for nine days, but he turned down the proposition.

TMZ reportedly obtained a copy of the offer, which stipulates that 'Ye would perform three shows a week, for three weeks, at the Axis at Planet Hollywood. That math works out to about $500,000 a show.

If he accepted the gig, this would've made him the best paid entertainer in the city (Britney Spears' is a close second with about $475,000 per show).

Meanwhile, his wife Kim Kardashian was reportedly paid $500, 000 to celebrate her birthday at Tao Las Vegas, so maybe 'Ye was holding out for a million per date, since his shows require quiet a bit of assembly.
