Kanye West has allegedly paid over $3 million to gather signatures in order to be placed on the presidential ballot in November.
The rapper, 43, reportedly enlisted the help of a number of people to get the required signatures, however he has found many states have barred him from being included in the ballot despite his efforts.
According to a report from TMZ on Monday, a source at Let the Voters Decide said Kanye has paid the petitioning group between $3.5 and $4.5 million for them to work across 15 states but with mixed results.
Funding: Kanye West 'has spent over $3 million to gather signatures to make the presidential ballot in 15 states... but he has been BARRED from three states', it was reported on Monday
The publication claimed Kanye paid $1 million to get 93,000 signatures in Arizona, but a judge is said to have barred him from being on the ballot.
It was also claimed that the same thing happened in Ohio and Virginia, and he is said to have pain $325k and $300k respectively for the signatures but still didn't make it on the ballot.
Despite this, Kanye has made it onto the ballot for 12 states including Kentucky, where he allegedly spent $400k to get the necessary signatures, and in Iowa, after reportedly paying $80k.
MailOnline has contacted Kanye's representatives for comment.
Campaign: According to TMZ, a source at Let the Voters Decide said Kanye has paid them between $3.5 and $4.5 million for them to work across 15 states
Earlier this month, it was reported Kanye spent nearly $6million of his own money on his 2020 presidential campaign since July, records show.
Financial filings with the Federal Election Commission, obtained by Politico, show that West personally loaned his campaign - which kicked off on July 19 - nearly $6.8million.
The filings cover the period from July 15 to August 30.
So far, West has reported spending $5.9million on the campaign and has over $1.2million in outstanding debt, which is owed to consultants.
Not allowed in: The publication claimed Kanye paid $1 million to get 93,000 signatures in Arizona, but a judge is said to have barred him from being on the ballot
The filing also indicated that he has received about $11,000 in outside contributions to the campaign.
Most of the campaign expenses - amounting to $4.4million - were reported to have been spent on trying to get West onto ballots across the country.
West, who is running as a third-party candidate with the 'Birthday Party,' is currently on ballots in 10 states, among them potential battlegrounds like Colorado, Iowa and Minnesota, CNN reported.
He is said to have litigation pending in other states. At the moment, though, even if he carried the states in which he is on the ballot, he would not have enough electoral college votes to win.
The bulk of West's other expenses were reported to be paid to consulting firms.
His campaign said that they had paid nearly $1.3million to Atlas Strategy Group, run by Republican Gregg Keller, who worked on campaigns for Republicans including President George W. Bush and Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley.
An additional $2.6million is being paid to Millennial Strategies, which says it worked with Democrats including Pete Buttigieg's presidential campaign and New York City public advocate Jumaane Williams' campaign.
The campaign said that it was spending $444,000 with the company for polling.

West's campaign is also spending about $1.5million with Fortified Consulting in Arizona, which Politico said has the same mailing address as Lincoln Strategy Group's Arizona headquarters.
Lincoln Strategy Group worked on President Trump’s 2016 campaign, in addition with other Republicans, the news outlet reported.
West was reported to have spent more than $260,000 in legal fees while trying to get onto state ballots. Among his legal efforts is asking the Arizona Supreme Court to reverse the ruling that keeps him off the state's ballot.
West is a registered Republican and
