There’s little question that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were one of the hottest power couples of 2012 — and with the buzz around the Kimye pregnancy, they're set to dominate in 2013, too! But between these two uber rich and famous individuals, who’s worth more?
It should come as no surprise 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 $90 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 (who also became one of Yeezy’s closest friends).
Now an artist with international acclaim, 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.
Kim may not be worth as much as her man, but that doesn’t mean she’s been resting on her laurels. Although she’s largely considered a reality star, she’s branched out to become an entrepreneur, product endorser, model, and actress.
Thanks to the popularity of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim makes $40,000 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.
Now that the couple is expecting their first child together, we see a merging of their lucrative assets in the near future!
