Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kanye West, multiple sources confirmed on Friday, and the big question now is what will happen to the couples’ massive wealth.
Forbes has estimated both Kardashian and West have a combined net worth of $2.1 billion. Individually, West is worth $1.26 billion of that total, according to the magazine — with the bulk of his income resulting from his successful and highly lucrative Yeezy fashion brand.
Meanwhile, Kardashian is worth an estimated $750 million. She owns 72% of her KKW beauty line, which comes out to about $500 million. Additionally, the reality star sold a 20% stake of that company last year, which amounted to $200 million in cash. Coupled with her various other revenue streams such as the “Keeping up with the Kardashians” reality series, her clothing label Skims and KKW fragrance line, Karadshian’s assets are both liquid and vast.
“The way they treat each other in this divorce is extremely important as it relates to their brand,” Dror Bikel, a New York City-based divorce lawyer and author told Yahoo Finance.
So how will all that money be divided up, especially if the proceedings turn messy?
