Is money keeping Kanye West and Kim Kardashian apart? They may do everything together, but one thing that they keep ‘separate’ is their multi-million dollar incomes. Curious about who makes more between them? Get the details here!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are one of Hollywood’s most famous couples, so of course they have tons of money — that doesn’t mean they share it with each other, though! Even after being married for nearly two years, Kim, 35, and Kanye, 38, apparently keep their finances separate. But while they each make millions, there’s still a bigger breadwinner in the Kimye household. So, who makes more? We’ve got the answer!
As one of Hollywood’s most famous couples, Kim and Kanye “make a lot of money, and money is not a problem with them,” a source told People. Although they both make tons of money, the source added, “they keep their accounts basically separate,” and that Kanye will often “talk about ‘my money’ and ‘her money.'”
Oh c’mon Kimye, when you’re dealing with several millions of dollars, does it really make a difference to keep your accounts separate? Well, in Kim’s mind, maybe so — because she makes more than her hubby! According to Forbes‘ most recent estimates, Kim made nearly $53 million in 2015 alone, landing herself at No. 33 on the list of top 100 highest paid celebrities for the year. Surprisingly, Kanye didn’t even make the 2015 roster, meaning he made less than $28.5 million…a.k.a, less than half of Kim!
Although it wasn’t mentioned how much Kim and Kanye are worth in total, clearly Kim is winning the income game. And besides, Kanye recently admitted himself that he’s a whopping $53 million in debt — no wonder Kim doesn’t want to combine her money with his!
But considering Kanye just dropped his latest album, The Life Of Pablo, he could take the financial crown back from Kim. Then again, Kim’s app, website, AND Keeping Up With The Kardashians are all still going strong, so it’ll definitely be interesting to see who comes out on top for 2016. If they’re keeping their money separate now, though, we’re thinking Kimye won’t be combining their incomes no matter who makes more this year!
