10 Celebrities Who've Been Accused of Gold Digging (PHOTOS)

Now that he's no longer pulling in big bucks as a sparkly vampire, Robert Pattinson's earnings have greatly diminished, but that reportedly hasn't stopped him and girlfriend FKA Twigs from "living like A-listers on a C-lister's salary."

In fact, people close to the couple have called out the 27-year-old singer -- whose music career, while promising, is hardly as lucrative as RPattz's -- as being a "gold digger" who "knows how to work men" and is trying to spend every last penny the Twilight star has.

Whether true or not, FKA would hardly be the first in Hollywood to have earned such a reputation. Here are nine more celebrities who've been accused of being a gold digger.

Do you think any of these celebrities are gold diggers?

1Amber Heard

When newlyweds Amber Heard and Johnny Depp first went public with their relationship, fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor certainly had strong opinions on the coupling and weren't afraid to throw the words "gold digger" around.

The sentiment was also reportedly felt by Johnny's ex, Vanessa Paradis.

According to one report: "Vanessa doesn't care for Amber at all. She's convinced that Amber's trying to get her hooks into Johnny and his money ... But Vanessa doesn't believe it's going to last, and that's why she's against Johnny marrying Amber."

2Kim Kardashian

It's hard to imagine that anyone would accuse Kim Kardashian of gold-digging these days, especially considering how much money she's earned on her own. But when her husband Kanye West announced that he and the reality star were expecting their first child together, many fans of the rapper were quick to point out how much the lyrics of Kanye's song "Gold Digger" resembled Kim. 

However, Kanye came to Kim's defense in an interview earlier this year, saying: "My wife has dated broke black dudes. It got nothing to do with the money."

3Casper Smart

When backup dancer Casper Smart first hooked up with Jennifer Lopez, the term "gold digger" was certainly bandied about.

One of Casper's friends even told a tabloid that the 27-year-old had dated an older woman before Jennifer and had "mooched off" his ex, using her car, cash, and home before dumping her.

"Aisha was really good to Casper," said the friend. "But he used her to get what he wanted, then left her for JLo."

Even though Casper and Jennifer reportedly called it quits in 2014, the couple have been seen hanging out again in recent days.

4Eric Johnson

Although he used to be a professional football player, Jessica Simpson's husband Eric Johnson was reportedly unemployed when he first started dating the music and fashion mogul in 2010.

If you believe recent tabloid reports, the 35-year-old father of two still doesn't have a real job and reportedly is content to live off of Jessica's money.

5Kimora Lee Simmons

Kimora Lee Simmons was just an ambitious 17-year-old when she met music mogul Russell Simmons, who was 35 at the time. The two married and Russell helped her become who she is today — a successful clothing designer and businesswoman.

Still, when her marriage fell apart in 2009, Kimora quickly rebounded with two more successful, rich men, causing some to label her a gold digger.

6Crystal Harris Hefner

When you marry a wealthy man who's 60 years your senior, you're bound to be called a gold digger, so it should come as no shock that Crystal Harris Hefner has had the label lobbed at her a time or two.

The 28-year-old married Playboy founder Hugh Hefner in 2012, after having left him at the altar the year before.

7Courtney Love

Courtney Love may have married Kurt Cobain for love, but since then, the rock star hasn't been shy about her money troubles and even announced in 2011 that she's only interested in dating "really, really rich guys."

"I'm determined to land one sooner or later," she added.

8Anna Nicole Smith

Anna Nicole Smith may be the most famous widely accused gold digger in Hollywood history. The late model and actress, who tragically died in 2007, married Texas billionaire J. Howard Marshall when she was just a 24-year-old stripper and later fought his eldest son, Pierce Marshall, for a share of the family fortune after the elder Marshall passed away.

9Elin Nordegren

If Elin Nordegren really did marry her ex-husband Tiger Woods for his money, as some of her detractors have suggested, then she paid for it in heartache, as theirs was definitely not a happy marriage. Tiger notoriously cheated on the blonde beauty with a bevy of other women, one of whom even accused Elin of being married to Tiger "only for the money."

Not helping her image as a gold digger is the fact that post-split, Elin dated billionaire Chris Cline for over a year.
