Now that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are uniting their respective entertainment realms into one giant empire, we've got to ask: Between these two super rich and famous individuals, who's worth more?
It's likely not surprising that Kanye's wealth far exceeds that of Kim's. He is a world-renowned rapper and producer after all! Kanye's total net worth is about $100 million, which is more than twice that of Kim's $40 million net worth.
Prior to releasing his debut album, The College Dropout, in 2004, Kanye worked behind the scenes as a producer for artists like Jermaine Dupri, Ludacris, Nas, and Jay Z. Now an artist with international acclaim in his own right, Kanye has begun to explore his business ventures outside of music. He created his own line of sneakers with Nike called Air Yeezys and collaborated with Louis Vuitton on a shoe line as well. In 2011, he debuted his own women’s fashion line called DW Kanye West, and back home in Chicago, he owns a chain of Fatburger restaurants that generate some steady income. They'd have to when he goes around buying multi-million dollar diamond rings!
Kim may not be worth as much as her man, but that doesn't mean she's a — wait for it — golddigger. Although she's largely considered a reality star, Kim has branched out to become an entrepreneur, product endorser, model, and actress.
Thanks to the popularity of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim makes an estimated $80,000 per episode. She also runs a successful fashion empire with her sisters and her own line of jewelry, and is not shy about lending her name or image to a number of different companies. Kim has also honed her acting chops in films like Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor and TV shows like Drop Dead Diva.
With money like that, the Empire Kimye will likely be prosperous for decades to come.
