Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Proposal: He Spent HOW MUCH in Total?

Kim Kardashian is accustomed to a certain way of life. She’s a millionaire in her own right — many times over — and that’s not to mention the piles of cash we’re sure fill the walk-in closets of her family’s various mansions. So how exactly do you propose to the woman who has it all?

Answer: Rent a baseball stadium, recruit A-list talent, schedule fireworks, write on the Jumbotron, and be Kanye West. Clearly, Yeezy didn’t disappoint in his proposal to Kim but how much did the whole endeavor cost the superstar?

More than you probably want to know. Still curious? We were, too, so here’s a financial breakdown on October 21’s engage-apalooza:

Writing a message on the AT&T Park scoreboard: $175. According to MTV, that’s the cost for four lines of 20 characters. Luckily for Kanye, they don’t charge more for adding extra vowels.

Hiring a 50-piece symphony: $50,000 to $80,000, a figure that may include $1,000 Kanye reportedly gave each member for playing Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful”.

Renting a Major League Baseball stadium: $200,000. That is, if Kanye had to pay at all. E! News reports the rapper got in for free thanks to the owner of the San Francisco Giants.

All told, E! News says the proposal cost Kanye upwards of $3 million including that 15-carat stunner of a ring (the price on that puppy varies widely).

We doubt Kanye minded the cost; there was only one thing he carried about Monday Night: having his girlfriend say yes. Knowing Kim Kardashian is about to be your wife? Priceless.
