Kim Kardashian and Kanye West donate $25k to injured photographer
The couple's personal photographer was injured
Kim Kardashian West and her hubby, Kanye West may have caught some criticism for flaunting the private, double-decker, 747 they like to travel in this week but they also shared some serious dough with their personal photographer, Marcus Hyde, who was badly injured in a car crash last month.
Aside from the hefty donation, Kim Kardashian West encouraged her millions of followers to contribute to the GoFundMe campaign that was set up to help offset his medical costs.
“If you are able to help the family would be so grateful!,” she tweeted.

Kimye’s donation helped surpass the $10,000 goal in a hurry.
“As many know, Marcus Hyde was in a serious car accident at the end of October, resulting in him being hospitalized with serious injuries. He is still currently being hospitalized and will be for quite some time. With that being said, he has a long road to recovery,” the GoFundMe page reads.
According to TMZ, Hyde suffered serious injuries after he lost control of his car and it went over an embankment in Malibu on October 29. He was airlifted from the scene and taken to the Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center and is still being treated for his injuries.
Shortly before his accident, the photographer snapped photos of Kanye West and his wifey during a trip to Bali. Kardashian West was distraught following the news of the accident and posted about it on social media.
“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.”
