This is at stake in Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s divorce
With a combined assets of about $ 2.1 billion, there is a lot to be divided in the divorce of Kim Kardashian (40) and Kanye West (43). The multi-million dollar properties they own together, the four children they had and so on, it can be quite a fight for Kimye. Plus, at all costs, Kim would want to keep Kanye from flipping out about their time together and her family.
During his presidential campaign, Kanye made special statements about his marriage to Kim. For example, he claimed they almost chose to abort their daughter North and renamed his mother-in-law ‘Kris Jong-Un’. In addition, he accused his wife of plotting to have him involuntarily admitted to a psychiatric hospital and that he has been trying to get a divorce for years. Kanye’s statements seem to have cost him his marriage in the end.
Kim has hired top attorney Laura Wasser. She was also responsible for the divorce negotiations with Kim’s mother Kris Jenner, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Stevie Wonder and many other celebs. Laura assisted Kim before, namely during her divorce from Kris Humphries. The question now is whether she will succeed in letting Kimy’s divorce proceed as discreetly as possible. Kanye is of course known for his Twitter tirades and intense interviews, in which he sometimes tells spicy details about the Kardashians. Laura has to put a stop to that.
What will be disputed about is an amount of 90 million dollars. That’s the total value of all the real estate, art, jewelry and animals that the former couple share. They have a $ 50 million family home in Calabasas, an apartment in Miami and two ranches in Wyoming. Kim would prefer to stay in the million dollar villa in Los Angeles, because the rest of the KarJenner clan also resides there. If she succeeds, she’ll have to buy Kanye’s half of the mansion.
In any case, Kim and Kanye won’t be fighting who gets the billions. The two have a marriage contract stating that they will keep their own businesses should there ever be a divorce. The rapper thus retains his Yeezy empire and the reality star her beauty business KKW Beauty and her underwear brand Skims. For Kanye, that means his $ 1.3 billion assets will remain intact and Kim will be able to keep her $ 900 million.
The only condition for a divorce was that Kanye had to remit his ex-wife 1.21 million for each year they were married. After nearly 7 years of marriage, that amounts to a whopping $ 8.47 million. Kanye’s $ 16.5 million life insurance policy will also end up with Kim in all cases. His gifts to her will not appear in the negotiations either. The reality star can just keep her engagement ring, which is said to be worth about $ 2 million, in her jewelry box.
ost important, of course, are the four children, North (7), Saint (5), Chicago (3) and Psalm (1). But that doesn’t seem to be a struggle between Kim and Kanye. The reality star has already requested that custody be shared when submitting the divorce papers. She has already indicated that she will not be entitled to the marital maintenance to which she would be entitled. The aim of this would have been to be as good as possible in the match. The only thing Kim would like is for Kanye not to talk about their marriage and hang out the dirty laundry.
