25 Rich Guys With Even Richer Wives

Money Magazine 25 Rich Guys With Even Richer Wives By SERGEI KLEBNIKOV July 11, 2017 Rich guys are a dime a dozen these days—according to Forbes, 87 of the 100 richest Americans are male. But in some instances, they rank a distant second behind their spouses. Using calculations from Celebritynetworth.com, MONEY selected well-known celebrity couples in which the wives out-earn their husbands. The site uses a variety of sources to come up with a celebrity’s total value of assets held, including film or TV salaries, business investments, sponsorships, real estate deals, as well as any liabilities that can be found, before taking out a final estimate for taxes. “Women as an entertainment force or getting involved in business is becoming less rare, and this trend will continue,” says Brian Warner, founder and CEO of Celebritynetworth.com. “As more stories come out, they spawn hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs and actresses who are earning way more.” Take a look below at the breakdown of rich guys… who have even richer wives.

Her non-apparel advertising campaigns include Nivea, Volkswagons do Brazil, and Apple Inc., among others. Also a successful businesswoman, she has launched her own line of designer sandals and also owns the Brazilian hotel Palladium Executive. Her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, has netted total cash earnings of almost $200 million, and his current annual salary is approximately $20.5 million. He recently signed a $41 million contract extension with the Patriots last season, which included a $28 million signing bonus. Much of his wealth is thanks to a wide variety of endorsement deals with brands such as Under Armour, Tag Heuer, UGG, and most recently signed this year: Aston Martin.  

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Jamie McCarthy—Getty Images/Yeezy Season 4 Year Married: 2014 Kim Kardashian Net Worth: $175 Million Kanye West Net Worth: $160 Million After rising to prominence on the reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim has seen her fame skyrocket over the last decade. As one of the most famous celebrities on the planet today and a media mogul, much of her wealth derives from her reality television salary, profits from mobile phone games, and expanding retail empire, not to mention various endorsements and appearance fees. Earning $45.5 million before taxes in the last year alone, Kim’s income was bolstered by her Kimoji app – which she has expanded into a line of Kim-based merchandise, Instagram sponsorships, a lipstick collection with Kylie Cosmetics, and a new kids clothing line launched with husband Kanye West. Her massively popular Kim Kardashian: Hollywood cellphone game with Glu Mobile also continues to make big bucks, and has generated nearly $200 million in revenue since June 2014. Kim recently announced the launch of her own makeup line, KKW Beauty. With well over 32 million albums sold and 21 Grammy awards to his name, Kanye West is one of the most influential names in the music industry. His most recent release last year, The Life of Pablo, became his eighth consecutive album to go platinum, and the first ever streaming-only record to do so. West is also a seasoned businessman – prior to joining forces with Adidas, Kanye created a successful line of Nike Air Yeezy sneakers. He has since designed his own fashion collection: Yeezy, which debuted at New York Fashion Week in 2015 and his success as a fashion designer has earned him a new deal with Adidas in 2016, worth substantially more than the original endorsement signed for $10 million.
