Superstar rapper Kanye West hasn't been shy about his money troubles.

He turned to Twitter in a now famous rant asking Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg for some cash to fund his (as yet unspecified) ideas as well as revealing that he is millions of dollars in debt.

Has West now decided to rein in his spending? The musician has been spotted at an Ikea store in Sweden, much to the surprise of, well, everyone.

Ikea confirmed to a Swedish tabloid that he had visited the home of Ikea in Almhult, where the first ever flat-pack furniture store was set up and now has offices.

Rather than leaving with some Kottbullar meatballs and a Billy bookcase, a spokesperson said the rapper was visiting the retailer's design department, fuelling speculation that there might be some sort of collaboration between the two.

In addition to the music, West is well known for his fashion credentials, having designed his own line called Yeezy as well as working with Adidas on a range of trainers.

On a design partnership, the spokesperson said only a mysterious "time will tell".
