Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s Prenup Follows The Rules Of “Gold Digger”
The Kimye wedding news continues and this time it's not about fun stuff like the location or the date being set due to astrology, this time it's about serious business — the prenup! Reportedly, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have agreed on a prenup which states that Kardashian will receive $1 million for each year of marriage to West for up to ten years. Now to me, this seems ridiculous because they are both incredibly wealthy. Their prenup should just say, "We're both rich. We promise to keep our own money when this ends" and sign on the dotted line. Instead, because West is worth an estimated $100 million and Kardashian worth only $40 million, she could literally make $10 million by being married to the person she's in love with assuming they stay together for ten years.
But some people see this differently. Hollywood Life spoke with "top celebrity divorce attorney" Vicki Zieger who says,
I like that Kim is getting money for every year of marriage in lieu of alimony but I would like to see her get $2 million per year, capped at 20 years. They are young and by only accepting $10 million, she could lose out on a great deal of money if married for more! No one knows how long a marriage will last, so why limit yourself to 10 years? Prenups can be revised several times until filly executed before the marriage takes place!
Zieger is such a romantic!
According to Radar Online, Kardashian and West treated this less like a heartless business deal that could only end in divorce and moolah than Zieger seems to advise. A source told the website, "The entire process for the prenup for Kim and Kanye has been extremely easy, and relatively drama free. Kanye didn’t even think the couple needed a prenup, and was ready to give Kim carte blanche to all of his financial assets."
Kanye West didn't want a prenup? But he rapped about it in Gold Digger! "If you ain't no punk holla 'We want prenup! We want prenup! Yeah!'/ It's something that you need to have/ 'Cause when she leave your ass/ She gon' leave with half." Maybe he said he didn't want one at first, but she obviously isn't going to be leaving with half.
The prenup also reportedly includes clauses stating that the title of their mansion will be in Kardashian's name, Kardashian will be a life-long beneficiary on West's $20 million life insurance policy, and she will be able to keep any gifts given to her by West. There isn't a clause about custody of their daughter, North West, in the event of a divorce.
Hey! West rapped about that too. "18 years, 18 years/ And on her 18th birthday, he found out it wasn't his." Well that isn't going to happen. That baby looks just like him.
