As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, the Dow Jones is seeing some real volatility today, following some meaningful gains in the market. It’s a distressing development, and one that we’ll dissect right now.
Hah! Nope. We’re going to talk about the Kardashian-Humphries divorce, obviously.
Yes, after 72 blissful, totally not staged days, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are zomggettingdivorced. Up is down, black is white, dogs and cats living together, and we’re left to pick up the pieces of our shattered national psyche.
So. Considering that Kardashian actually made $18 million from her wedding, we couldn’t help but wonder: how much is she going to lose from the divorce?
Well, according to some early reports, she might not lose all that much.
The duo locked in a pretty air-tight pre-nup, according to a Los Angeles Times report from August. As the story pointed out, Kardashian’s mammoth, $35 million net worth made Humphries’ own $8 million to $16 million purse look, well, a tad paltry. Their pre-nup not only protected each partner’s pre-marriage net worth, but also blocked any chance that either one of them could get their paws on eachother’s earnings during the marriage. So, as Kardashian told Reuters, “you do the math.”
While this seems like not much of a loss, just think how much Kim Kardashian could have made if she didn’t have to split her $18 million wedding salary! The Kardashian-Marries-Self E! special would have been gangbusters.
