The fans had been warned about what was on the horizon for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West before the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star moved toward dissolving her six-year marriage with the rapper and Yeezy founder after a year of thick tension between them. Now that official word is out, the fans are wondering how the superstar couple will divide up their million-dollar properties and investments.
A month before Kim Kardashian decided to file for divorce from Kanye West, certain reports had already surfaced with claims that divorce was imminent for the reality star and the rapper. They enjoyed nine years together and six of marriage, when they welcomed four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. Alas, things appeared to go left last summer around the time Kanye announced his bid for the 2020 presidency. The Yeezy founder went on a Twitter tirade against his wife and mother-in-law Kris Jenner before holding a rally and divulging private information about their first pregnancy. In the months that followed, Kim and Kanye were rarely spotted together before reports indicated that they were living separate lives.
When the Kim and Kanye divorce was announced, imgs for the couple said that they were focusing on co-parenting amicably while working out on a settlement. The KKW Beauty founder filed for joint and legal custody of their four children, to which Kanye agreed. Additionally, the couple had a prenup in place that neither side was contesting. In March 2014, Radar released details on the couple’s agreed-upon prenuptial agreement. According to their findings, Kim would receive $1 million for every year that she was married to Kanye with a cap at $10 million. Additionally, their Bel Air mansion would remain in Kim’s name and she would keep all of the lavish gifts from the “Stronger” rapper.
Meanwhile, the money that Kim Kardashian made from E!’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians and other business endeavors are reportedly going to remain hers. On top of the $6 million that Kim is set to receive, she is still listed as a beneficiary on Kanye’s $20 million life insurance policy. The couple also had no clauses on custody arrangements, with them only having North at the time of their marriage. When signing the prenup, Kanye was reportedly worth $100 million, whereas Kim was worth $40 million. The two stars have since grown their net worth, as Kanye is reportedly now worth $1.3 billion and Kim is worth $780 million.
With Kim having built her SKIMS fashion line while possibly under the influence of her fashion mogul husband, some divorce attorneys say Kanye might be entitled to a percentage of that company. However, it’s likely that the rapper will opt to let his wife keep her business earnings to herself and their children. Additionally, the couple owns the Wyoming ranch that Kanye resides in. While Kim could fight to remain ownership, it’s likely she will let her husband keep the property while she stays in the Calabasas home that they spent $20 million renovating.
