Which Couple is Richer? Kim Kardashian and Kayne West or Jay-Z and Beyonce?


Jay Z, who has a net worth of $1 billion, is worth more than Beyoncé, but Kim Kardashian West is the breadwinner in her marriage with Kanye West.

Who's got the hottest album? Who's got the most valuable product line? Who is the biggest celebrity in the world? Who has the biggest TV/Netflix contract? Who sold out more shows? Who has the best house? Who has more houses?

For a long time the answer to that last question has definitively been Jay-Z and Beyonce. For over a decade, Kanye's net worth couldn't hold a candle to Jay's. In 2013, Jay-Z was worth $500 million, while Kanye was worth around $75 million.

Jay-Z became the first billionaire rapper in history in June 2019. At that point Beyonce was worth $400 million, so their combined net worth was $1.4 billion. Today we peg Jay-Z and Beyonce's net worth at $1.5 billion.

If you were to go back a year ago, Kim and Kanye were worth around $600 million together, roughly $300 million from him, $350 million from her. Over the last few months we received information that showed our valuation of Kanye's Yeezy business was way way way off. We had been estimating the value of Yeezy at $500 million.

Kanye's other assets are worth around $300 million ($120 million – real estate, $80 million music production/royalties, $120 million – and other). He has around $100 million in liabilities, mostly in the form of mortgages related to a property portfolio that includes several homes in Los Angeles and over 10,000 acres of land and commercial space in Wyoming.

When you subtract the $100 million in liabilities from his $3.3 billion in assets, you arrive on a net worth of $3.2 billion for Kanye. So who is the richest? Leave your thoughts below!
