Kanye West recent fashion show at Madison Square Garden cost a whopping $2 million, RadarOnline.com has learned. And despite his reported $53 million debt, he picked up the check!

The Yeezus 3 fashion show was held at MSG at his insistence, an insider told Radar. "Adidas had offered other venues that would have cost substantially less. Those venues were turned down," the source claimed. "Kanye wanted it to be over-the-top, and he got what he wanted. The rental fee was astronomical and Kanye had to have elaborate cat walks made too."

Behind the scenes, the source said, "The show was just a total s**t show of chaos and anger. The vibe was just off."
