Report: Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Are Getting a Prenup

Newly engaged couple planning to keep assets separate.

Published October 25, 2013

America's most recent sweetheart couple, the newly engaged Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, will be drafting up some prenuptial paperwork to go with their romance, reports TMZ.

But weep not for the romance. According to "multiple sources," tied to both sides of the aisle, the couple simply wants to keep their business assets separate, but they will have a joint account for all their cuddly cohabiting expenses.

The sources also said that with the prenup agreement, Kardashian is upholding a lesson from her father, the late Robert Kardashian, who was an attorney. He told her to always have a contract in place when it comes to dealing with money.

Both she and West have created considerable wealth with their careers. As of June 2013, Kim Kardashian's net worth is listed at $10 million and West's is listed at $20 million, reports Forbes.

Besides, talk of contracts has been woven throughout this reality-TV fairytale engagement. Guests who were invited to the popping of the question were said to have signed confidentiality agreements. One guest apparently broke that contract by leaking video footage to the web.

Word is, the couple plans to release footage themselves via a special on E! is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
