'Bound 2' Confirms Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's Combined Celebrity Power
Kanye West's net worth? It's a lot more with Kim involved.
Kanye West's net worth may well be twice that of his fiancee's Kim Kardashian, but, as a celebrity couple, Kimye is a hugely powerful money-maker in the same vein as Brad and Angelina.
Kanye West Has A Net Worth of $100 Million
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kanye's net worth is said to be around $100 million with Kim worth $40 million, though one thing's for sure following Bound 2, Kim and Kanye are now a joint offering.
Something that some readers may not know is that prior to releasing his debut album The College Dropout in 20014, Kanye had already established himself as a producer and was working behind the scenes for artists including Jay Z, Nas, Ludacris and Jermaine Dupri.
West spent for years honing his debut, which went in at No.2 on the Billboard 200 and is still the rapper's biggest selling album in the country. He also made plenty of dollar on his subsequent Late Registration, Graduation and 808s & Heartbreak, as well as the more recent My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Yeezus.
Something that has become far more evident in recent months is that Kanye West's net worth has skyrocketed through his business ventures. He has a chain of Fatburger restaurants in the Chicago area and - until recently - worked with Nike and Louis Vuitton on various products including his famous Air Yeezy sneakers and a high fashion shoe line. A new deal with Adidas will give him more creative freedom though it's also likely to be another big money spinner.
