With Divorce Looming Fast, How Much Money Is At Stake For Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Divorce Saga

It’s no looking news that American celebrity couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s marriage is looming to hit the rock, as the popular reality star Kim Kardashian and mother four already filed a divorce, according to reports by CNN, TMZ, PageSix, People, and Forbes.

With a report suggesting that both American stars are heading for divorce, with the report saying that both couples have agreed on legal custody of their children. With a combined net worth of $2.1 billion, there’s plenty of wealth to haggle over, but how much will really be in play if they split?

Though the Kardashians are known for drama, dividing the wealth may be surprisingly easy. The couple likely has a prenup, given the money at stake and considering it’s Kardashian West’s third marriage. Plus their biggest assets are independently owned and operated businesses and the pair have had separate income streams since their 2014 nuptials. Things get more complicated when it comes to their shared real estate and toys—including their Calabasas mansion, with an estimated $30,000 bathroom sink—though that makeup less than 5% of their collective assets.

A source close to the pair told Forbes no final decision has been made about divorce after Page Six reported Tuesday that it is imminent but acknowledged that the couple has been living separately—Kardashian West in Calabasas, California with the kids and West in Wyoming—and that they have been in therapy and discussing a possible split off and on for the past year.

Here’s a look at what each member of the Kardashian-West union would likely walk away with, should they part ways—and which assets they might fight over:

Kanye West: $1.26 billion

West is the richer of the pair, but much of his net worth is tied up in his illiquid apparel company.

Yeezy: $1.26 billion

The crown jewel of his fortune, West owns 100% of his shoe brand, which is known for its chunky sneakers that cost upwards of $200 a pair. The company’s value is bound to Adidas, which manufactures, markets, and distributes the shoes. In a model similar to a royalty stream, West collects about 11% of Yeezy’s annual revenue, which was about $1.3 billion in 2019. Using a conservative multiple, Forbes estimated in April 2020 that the brand is worth $1.26 billion

Kim Kardashian West: $750 million

Kardashian West might have less than her husband, but her fortune is much more liquid—and less dependent on the trendiness of her brand and the whims of consumers.

KKW Beauty: $500 million

Similar to West, the bulk of Kardashian’s fortune sits in a brand with her name on it. Forbes estimated in October that West’s 72% stake in her cosmetics company KKW Beauty is worth about $500 million.

Cash and other investments: $250 million

Kardashian earned millions from 13 years of starring on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, her mobile app Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, and various modeling and endorsement gigs. But her biggest payday came when she sold 20% of KKW Beauty to cosmetics giant Coty for $200 million in cash last year.

What that leaves: $70 million

The pair owns a number of homes—and have a number of mortgages—together, including a Calabasas mansion in Los Angeles County, Miami condo, and two ranches in Wyoming. According to documents West sent Forbes last year, there’s also $5 million in art, nearly $4 million in vehicles, $3.2 million in jewelry, and even $300,000 worth of livestock that could be co-owned by the couple. Who gets what will be dependent on the terms of their prenup (if indeed they have one) and whatever settlement their lawyers can negotiate. What we can say with certainty: Neither party would walk away wanting for much.
