Kardashian Says She’s a Smart Girl, Do the Prenup Math

Who would have ever thought that Kim Kardashian would be giving celebrity couples good relationship advice? Though not explicitly, she seems to have acknowledged a prenup between her and her new husband Kris Humphries. At least that is what we suspect given Kardashian’s comments. No celebrity couple should go without one. With the money at stake and the fickle nature of Hollywood, no one can ever predict what will happen with a celebrity marriage.

Kardashian told tabloids, “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.” The math does appear to be in Kardashian’s favor, so it would make sense for her to sign a prenup. Kardashian earns a reported $6 million a year from her reality show and endorsements. Her husband’s NBA salary is $2-3 million a year. Her net worth is estimated to be nearly $40 million, so if the two divorce, she stands to lose a lot more than he does.

As a reality star, it seems that anything and everything associated with her life is up for sale. Kardashian received a $2 million engagement ring from Humphries (in other words, two-thirds of his yearly salary). For her wedding photos, People magazine paid Kardashian $1.5 million. She received somewhere around $15 million for the four-hour, two-part E! TV show that covered her wedding.

Do you have a differing opinion on Kardashian’s comments above? Could she have gone without the prenup for her second marriage?
