kanyenew11Kanye West is apparently $53 million dollars in debt and wants help from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The polarizing musician tweeted on Saturday that he was $53 million dollars in “personal debt.” Then on Sunday, he tweeted this:

It’s unclear if Kanye is serious, if he’s kidding, or if he’s putting forth some type of bizarre alter-ego. The 21-time Grammy Award winner was No. 20 on Forbes’ World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities list in 2014. Oh, and his wife had a net value of $52.5 million last year, according to Forbes.

West, who has had a series of ridiculous tweets over the past few months, also on Sunday released his eighth album, The Life of Pablo. The 18-track compilation is available exclusively on Tidal, the new music streaming service created by Jay-Z.

After initially saying the new album would be available on Tidal and his website, West tweeted today that he won’t “sell my album for another week” on other platforms in hopes that people subscribe for Tidal, which charges between $9.99 and $19.99 per month to stream and download music and is aiming to compete with other services like Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora. Rihanna and Beyonce — Jay-Z’s wife — also recently released music exclusively on Tidal.

Update: More tweets from Kanye tonight about Mark Zuckerberg. Is this becoming a real thing? Will Zuck respond? Kanye also asked Google co-founder Larry Page for financial help.
