KimYe Donate To Their Photographer After Major Car Accident

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian recently made a generous donation to the family of Marcus Hyde—their personal photographer who is now fighting for his life.

The Los Angeles-based photographer sustained critical injuries last month after he lost control of his Mercedes while driving in Malibu. Witnesses told TMZ that Hyde’s vehicle went over an embankment and fell 200 feet from the main road. Hyde reportedly began having seizures after the crash and was subsequently airlifted the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. A female passenger who was with him in the car also ended up being hospitalized.

Shortly after the devastating accident, Kim went to social media asking for prayers, saying, “I’m trying to find the perfect picture but I don’t want to share them. We were saving these for our book,” she wrote. “Angels are surrounding you. I’m praying so hard for you. Please be ok. Please come back.”

Now, nearly one month after the initial accident, the Wests generously donated $25,000 to help pay for Hyde’s medical bills. TMZ reported that the couple decided to make their donation public to bring more attention to a GoFundMe campaign that was set up to support the photographer and his family. And all because of the West family contribution, the campaign has nearly tripled its initial goal as of now.

Those who would like to donate to the cause to help with Marcus Hyde’s medical bills can do so here.
