Celebrity couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have got their fans worried over the state of their 8-year-old union in the past year. However, speculations of divorce have now become even more intensified in the past few weeks.
In the wake of a report by Page Six which confirmed that the two may be going their separate ways, an international business magazine, Forbes, has highlighted the amount of money which is possibly at stake.
According to Forbes, Kim and Kanye have a combined net worth of $2.1 billion (over N800 billion) and there may be quite a lot of haggling if the couple gets divorced.
However, the fact that this isn’t Kim’s first marriage makes it possible that the couple may likely have a prenup and as such the dividing of their wealth may not come with a lot of trouble as imagined.
Forbes reports that the biggest assets of the husband and wife are independently owned and they have both had separate streams of income before they exchanged marital vows in 2014.
However, the complication in the division of wealth may come from shared real estate which includes their Calabasas mansion. The mansion is said to house an estimated $30,000 (over N11 million) bathroom sink.
With their joint net worth of $2.1 billion, Forbes estimates that Kanye may walk away with $1.26 billion He is the richer of the pair and much of his wealth is from his shoe brand, Yeezy.
Kim, on the hand, is estimated to leave the union with $750 million (. Much of Kim’s wealth comes from her KKW brand which is worth about $500 million.
The couple’s remaining assets which include a Calabasas mansion, Miami condo, two ranches in Wyoming, $5 million in art, nearly $4 million in vehicles, $3.2 million in jewellery and even $300,000 worth of livestock, are all rounded up to $70 million.
Their prenup and negotiations from lawyers would have to determine who gets what.
Some weeks ago, YEN.com.gh reported that multiple news sources reported that Kim and Kanye took some time apart to reassess their situation.
An insider revealed that the couple decided to focus on their children and try to navigate what is best for them.
