Milo Yiannopoulos is the latest to turn on Kanye West — confirming that he’s parted ways with the rapper after helping him with his planned 2024 White House run.

The British provocateur, who is Jewish, first confirmed to The Daily Beast that he’d reached a “mutual conclusion” with the rapper now known as Ye to “step away from his political team.”

The fallout was reportedly over money — with Yiannopoulos billing Ye $116,000 for several days’ work, according to TMZ, which said early Tuesday that it had seen a copy of the invoice.

Sources told the outlet that Ye — who lost his billionaire status amid the backlash over his anti-Semitic outbursts — had never reached a financial agreement with the notorious right-wing troll for his help.

Given that Ye has yet to officially declare his candidacy for president, it was assumed his widely-panned choice of advisers were mere volunteers, the outlet noted.

Yiannopoulos, who previously called sex between 13-year-olds and older men “life-affirming,” first emerged as Ye’s adviser when they filmed together in a clip on Nov. 20.

His hefty invoice was dated Dec. 1, TMZ said — meaning less than two weeks later.

In that time, the former Breitbart editor appeared to be behind some of Ye’s most questionable decisions, including his decision to work with Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes — as well as using him to set up former President Donald Trump.

Yiannopoulos has admitted to NBC News that he was the “architect” for sneaking Fuentes into Ye’s dinner with Trump at Mar-a-Lago — bragging that it was “just to make Trump’s life miserable.”

He was still by Ye’s side when the rapper walked out of a podcast interview on Nov. 28 when host Tim Pool tried to push back on some of his most incendiary views.

But he was absent when Ye, in a full-face-covering hood, was interviewed by Alex Jones last Thursday, in which he openly declared his love for Nazis and their genocidal leader Adolf Hitler.

Fuentes remained by Ye’s side for the “Infowars” sit down, and The Daily Beast noted rumors that Yiannopoulos was fired for attempting an apparent power “move against” the man he brought onboard.

“Any suggestion that I tried to get anyone fired is false — especially not people I brought in myself, who owe me their gratitude, loyalty, and respect,” Yiannopoulos told the outlet.

However, he admitted that he had “concerns about a potential new hire,” without identifying them.

“I’m not in the least bit drawn in by perks and private jets … Maybe the others are,” he sniped.

TMZ said it had unsuccessfully tried to get a response from Yiannopoulos over his $116,000 invoice.
