Does Kim Have To Pay Kris Millions?

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce isn't shocking, but could Kris end up a very wealthy guy after his quick marriage to the reality superstar just went down in flames?

Kim Kardashian's prenup: who gets what?Kim Kardashian filed for divorce today from Kris Humphries, in case you haven't already heard. Amidst the craziness of this media frenzy, we wondered: what exactly are the gritty details of Kim's prenuptial agreement?

When Kim was in Dubai a few weeks ago for work, she told Reuters, "I don't really talk finances. My father was an attorney and I'm a smart girl -- I'd like to think so -- you can do the math. I wouldn't worry about it."

Forbes estimates Kim Kardashian is worth about $35 million, not counting her recent $17.9 million paycheck from her wedding to Kris Humphries. That's right -- the $10 million wedding was not only free to Kim and Kris, but she got paid major dollars to film the event. In addition to her various business ventures, Kim reportedly makes $40,000 per episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. As a whole, the Kardashian clan made over $65 million in 2010.

Kris Humphries could have been the clear winner in this divorce since his net worth is around $8 million. He pulled in $3.2 million last year on the New Jersey Nets and saw the biggest increase in his bank account thanks to his relationship with Kim Kardashian. He will reportedly see some of the $18 million Kim earned from the wedding as well as a fraction of the $1.5 million sale of their wedding photos to People. However... the prenuptial agreement pretty much lets the couple go their separate ways and keep their separate bank accounts.

Highlights of the prenuptial agreement Kris Jenner had drafted up for Kris Humphries include:

  • Kim's Beverly Hill's mansion is hers to keep
  • Kim's assets (the $35 million number above) are 100% safe
  • Kim's earning during the marriage, including the wedding payout, are hers to keep entirely
  • Kris receives no consolation since the marriage failed.
  • Kris receives no spousal support.

So, it looks like Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce will end in a clean break. In addition to the straightforward prenuptial agreement, Kim also requested in her divorce filing for separate attorneys fees -- Kim will pay for hers and Kris will pay for his. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were married in August 2011 and divorced just 72 days later.

Thanks for sharing this story. Keeping up with Kim was one of my guilty pleasures. However, I’ve gotten disgusted with her and her family at this point. From what I’ve been reading, it sounds like the marriage and the prenuptial agreement were a sham. The only good that may come of it is that women will see how well they are protected by prenuptial agreements. For example, my friend who just divorced her Thai husband got a Thailand prenuptial agreement last year after reading about celebrity women who got them. Other than showing the importance of a prenuptial agreement, Kim and other celebrities that make ridiculous stabs at marriage are just making a mockery of the institution. People should stop worrying about the ual orientation of engaged couples, and start expecting that couples enter a marriage seriously and with the best intentions to make it last longer than 72 days.
