This week on The Brilliantly Dumb Show we discussed what is going to be a clash of the titans in the divorce world between Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, and how their divorce compares to the average person’s divorce.
This week, Page Six reported that Kim Kardashian West intends to file for divorce from Kanye after six years of marriage. While they are said to have a prenuptial agreement, the couple’s situation has vastly changed since their lavish wedding in Italy.
According to an April Forbes story, Kanye’s net worth has reportedly shot up from $100 million to $1.3 billion, thanks to his music and fashion careers. (Kanye claims the figure is more like $5 billion.) Kim has seen her fortune go from $40 million in 2014 to $780 million, with her shapewear and makeup brands on the rise.
Now, although there is a prenup on the table here, you still have to think that this thing is going to get ugly. There is some unfinished business in that board room and you have to believe Kris Jenner is coming for blood. But what really makes me feel like shit is considering the things I would be fighting for as an average dude if I was getting divorced today, compared to what Kim and Kanye are about to hash it out for.
Kim and Kanye will most likely be battling over some 8 bedroom, 8,500 sq ft, 6 car garage mansion in Calabasas while all I would be asking for is my Nespresso machine. Would it be too much If I asked for my six, seven, and eight iron and my set of wedges as well? She can have the nine iron, I’m a disaster with that thing anyway.
Also, where do they have these negotiations between their divorce attorneys and themselves? I can only imagine it’s one big board room where they have lunch catered in before each briefing. That’s when you know you’re rich, when you have lunch catered into you before discussing a divorce. I would most likely try to find a Starbucks that wasn’t too busy to have my attorney and future divorce’ meet at.
Kim and Kanye are about to be thrown through the wringer in this one, but don’t feel bad for them, they will live. And the average Joe like myself will get the luxury of watching it all go down step by step, tabloid by tabloid. What an outrageous world we live in.
