She's often the butt of jokes, but maybe Kim Kardashian isn't as foolish as everyone thinks she is. According to reports, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who's worth more money than sweet baby Jesus, is adamant about having her bank account separate from Kanye's. Good idea, Kim.
Apparently, coupon-clipping Kim is disgusted with Kanye's "excessive spending" habits and doesn't want anything to do with them. A source claims:
Kim wants her work earnings separate from Kanye's because she worries about his freewheeling spending habits, while she's an astute business woman. He splurges on one of a kind designer clothes and has poured millions of his own money into his design business.
Kanye supposedly is "horrified" at the idea of his and her bank accounts, but Kim, and her momager extraordinaire Kris Jenner, aren't budging -- especially since the last year has been Kim's most lucrative to date. (An app based on her life, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, just raked in about $200 million. Nothing this woman does fails to make money!)
Kimye haters of course are going on about how unromantic this is and how it's a terrible sign of what's to come if just a few months after their wedding, they're already keeping their money separate, but ... is it really? Hopefully, Kim and Kanye will go on to lead a long, beautiful life together, but if you were a betting woman, would you put money on that? Probably not. It may not be romantic, but it's certainly the smart, logical thing to do.
Listen to your mother, Kim. She knows best. Especially when it comes to money.
What do you think of Kim and Kanye having separate bank accounts?
