Billionaire Gets to Collect Child Support

This story is so expected, I did not even notice it in the news. Briefly: (1) celebrity couple gets divorce; (2) the wife is the one to bail out; (3) she openly cites purely narcissistic reasons; and (4) she gets a huge settlement that she does not need or deserve.

CNN reported, a couple of weeks ago:

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have come to a divorce agreement, a source with knowledge of the negotiations tells CNN.

Per the agreement, a draft of which was obtained by CNN, Kardashian will receive $200,000 per month in child support from West, who last year legally changed his name to Ye, and share joint custody of their four children.

CNN has reached out to representatives for Kardashian and West for comment.

Kardashian filed for divorce from West in February 2021, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple was married in a lavish wedding in Italy in 2014.

In March 2022, Kardashian was declared legally single after being granted a request to change her marital status.

In an interview with Vogue earlier this year, the Skims founder explained what led to her high-profile split, saying, that “for so long, I did what made other people happy” and that she decided “I’m going to make myself happy.”

She went on to say that “even if that created changes and caused my divorce, I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what really makes you happy.”

I’ve chosen myself,” she told the publication. “I think it’s okay to choose you.”

Kim Kardashian's net worth is estimated at $1.4 to $1.8 billion.

Under divorce law, there is no pretense that the monthly $200k will be spent on the kids. The mom gets the cash, and she can do whatever she wants with it.

West is a Christian, and he is trying to hold onto his family and his fortune. Kardashian depends on maintaining a public following for her wealth, but she is not worried about any backlash for so selfishly abandoning her family.

Why would any Billionaire even admit they wanted or needed child support?
Marriage has become a joke told by lawyers and gold diggers.
