Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have finally settled their divorce after an ugly public battle, that raged on for almost two years since they announced their split.
The pair have come to an agreement on the custody of their four children, parenting plans and the division of their multi-million dollar real estate portfolio.
The entrepreneurial pair have stacked up over a $200M in real estate, a $3.9M car collection and own more than $300K worth of livestock which they house in their Wyoming ranches.
Kardashian, 42, will hold on to their $60M mansion in Hidden Hills, California – and another property next door. West, 45, meanwhile, will retain ownership of a $60M Malibu beach home; the pair of ranches he owns in Wyoming; 300 acres in Calabasas, California; a home in Belgium; and the Chicago home he grew up in.

Kanye was reported to be worth $1.3B and Kim worth a staggering $1.8B.
However, Kanye’s wealth has plummeted in the wake of vile antisemitic comments the rapper has made – and continues to make – which have resulted in brands, such as Adidas, Gap, CAA and Balenciaga, cutting ties with him.
Last month, Kanye claimed he had lost $2B in a single day. While it is likely Kanye was exaggerating his losses, it was reported in October that West is now worth around $400M after his controversies.
Kim’s wealth stems from her 14-year stint on E!’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality show. She can earn around a million dollars per Instagram post, plus she has her various business ventures, including her KKW Beauty cosmetics company and SKIMS shapewear line. She also sold a 20 percent share in KKW Beauty to cosmetics giant Coty for $200M cash last year.
Now that their divorce has been resolved, what assets have they divided?
$200M real estate portfolio
The former couple have an impressive property portfolio said to be worth more than $200M. Perhaps the most notable in their collection of properties is their 15,667-square-foot mansion in Hidden Hills, California.
They bought the home in 2014 for $20M and are said to have spent four years and another $20M in renovations before they finally moved into it in 2018. Kris Jenner once tweeted that the home was worth $60 million.
An insider revealed to Page Six last year that Kim owns the land, but Kanye owns the actual house, which was likely a contentious part of the divorce settlement.
Earlier this year, it was also reported that the couple had separately bought Malibu houses. Kanye purchased his beach house for around $60M, while Kim bought hers – a Malibu estate that used to belong to Cindy Crawfrod – for $70M.
In the divorce settlement, West agreed to transfer Kardashian the title of a $4.5 million home next to where Kardashian lives in Southern California, according to TMZ. Kardashian will now be the owner of the five-bedroom home, which spans 3,650 sq. feet. She is expected to tear down the home – which West said he bought to be closer to his children – as it is in need of multiple renovations.

Meanwhile Kanye was awarded three homes in Calabasas, along with two ranches in Wyoming, including his famous 3,888-acre West Lake Ranch, which he took off the market in August

Kanye will also keep his own bachelor pad in Belgium which he purchased in September 2021 following his split from Kim, as well as his childhood home in Chicago, which he purchased in 2019 for $225,000 to save it from being demolished

In addition to the home next door, Kim will retain rights to the $60 million estate in Hidden Hills, where she lives in with their children, as well as property in Idaho.
The mother-of-four was also given a home in Riverside, California, as well as three homes in Idaho, and one in Malibu, California.
In the pact, West will retain ownership of a $60 million Malibu beach home, three homes in Calabasas, along with two ranches in Wyoming, including his famous 3,888-acre West Lake Ranch, which he took off the market in August.
The hitmaker had placed the ranch on the market in October 2021 for $11million, after buying the farm two years earlier for $9 million.
West also owns another property about 50 miles from Monster Lake with around 6,700 acres, which cost him a whopping $14.5 million.
His Monster Lake ranch includes stunning views of the nearby Rocky Mountains, and it is located just over 50 miles from Yellowstone Natural Park, according to People.
Kanye will also keep his own bachelor pad in Belgium which he purchased in September 2021 following his split from Kim, as well as his childhood home in Chicago, which he purchased in 2019 for $225,000 to save it from being demolished.
Kanye’s $90m music career
Kanye is considered to be one of the most acclaimed and biggest-selling artists of the past two decades – pictured performing at Coachella in 2019. However, after recent controversies, it is unclear how much his record label is worth, and how his sales will be affected
Kanye is considered to be one of the most acclaimed and biggest-selling artists of the past two decades.
He has won a total of 21 Grammy Awards, as well as the Billboard Artist Achievement Award, a joint-record three Brit Awards for Best International Male Solo Artist and the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
The star topped Forbes’ 2020 Highest Paid Musician List With $170M, ranking him the highest-paid musician of the year. They claim his G.O.O.D. label—and his own recorded music and publishing rights were worth at least $90 million.
Is is unclear how much his label is worth after the antisemitic comments, and how much his record sales will be impacted by the damage done to his reputation. Reports suggest music royalties are untouched in the divorce.
The rapper’s $3B dollar Yeezy brand
Yeezy was valued at $3bn by the Bank of America in 2019. West is the brand’s sole owner – the brand is believed to have added $1.26bn to the musician’s personal net worth, (pictured at Paris Fashion Week in 2020). This was all-but wiped out following his antisemitic rants, which have resulted in Adidas cutting ties with the rapper
Despite his huge success as a musician, the majority of Kanye’s wealth came from his Yeezy shoe brand which he owns outright, earning royalty from every sale.
According to Forbes, Yeezy, which Kanye launched with Nike in 2009 and then brought to Adidas in 2013, was valued at $3B by the Bank of America in 2019.
The brand is believed to have added $1.2B to the musician’s personal net worth. However, this was all-but wiped out following his antisemitic rants, which have resulted in Adidas cutting ties with the rapper.
Kim had previously helped to give the brand that added edge, constantly wearing the designs along with her famous sisters.
Without Adidas, Forbes has estimated West as being worth $400 million. The remainder of his fortune, the magazine estimates, comes from his real estate holdings, his music catalog, a 5 percent stake in Kim’s shapewear company Skims, and cash holdings. It is unclear if he will retain the 5 percent stake in the divorce.

West has also seen the end to his $970 million Gap X Balenciaga deal.
The confirmation of West’s Gap collection deal in June 2020 was a monumental moment for the rapper, who used to work in at one of its stores in Chicago as a teenager. The collaboration was estimated at around $970 million when the deal was announced, and it was originally expected to last for ten years.
West’s first release for the brand in 2021 immediately sold out – and the rapper later claimed that Gap had sold $14 million worth of hoodies at $80 per item.
However, the rapper terminated his work with the retailer in September 2022 after the brand refused to place him on the Gap corporate board.
With his fashion deals collapsing, so to has his wealth.
The couple’s $3.8million car collection
Kanye certainly has no need to call an Uber. The musician has splashed out $3.8million on a car collection to rival no other.
His list of prized motors includes a Lamborghini Gallardo, which ranges in price from $180,000 to $209,000, an Aston Martin DBS, $1.06 million Mercedes SLR Stirling Moss, a super-rare $500,00 Mercedes SLR McLaren and a $750,000 Lamborghini Aventador – bought as a present from Kim.
One of his assistants once crashed this car into a gate, but the car escaped with little damage. His Porsche Panamera Turbo, however, was reportedly stolen and crashed into someone’s home.

Kim Kardashian added to her incredible car collection – after snapping up a $600,000 one of a kind Lamborghini last year
According to Motorious, Kanye angered car fans along with Jay Z years ago, when the two cut up a Maybach57 in the music video Otis.
The site writes: ‘This move was purely to show how much money he had that the man could chop up something so expensive without a care.’
While Kanye goes for exotic supercars, Kim prefers classic luxury models, such as the $270,000 Bentley Continental GTC and a Rolls-Royce Ghost. She gets them customized by Platinum Motorsport.
Her love of cars stems from when her late father surprised her with a white BMW on her 16th birthday.
It was not initially clear how the couple would divvy up their collection of cars.
The Kardashian 14-year TV takeover
Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which catapulted the family to global stardom, bad been airing since 2007 and ended on its 20th season. The family now have a new show on Hulu
Kim earned a tidy $4.5M per season as both executive producer and star of hit E! reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which made the family a household name and ran for 20 seasons over 14 years.
Back in 2013 — before they were married — it was reported that Kanye refused to appear on the family show amid concerns the program would damage his reputation, but he made an occasional appearance.
Although there were rumors that Kourtney and Kim, as well as Kylie, pushed for the show to end, the family has denied as much.
The family told the MailOnline that the cancellation was equally ’emotional’ for the whole family who made the decision together.
E! meanwhile said in a statement: ‘While it has been an absolute privilege and we will miss them wholeheartedly, we respect the family’s decision to live their lives without our cameras.’
The Kardashian-Jenner family has gone on to star in ‘The Kardashians’ for Hulu, of which there have been two seasons so far. Reports have suggested the Kardashians are earning ‘nine figures’ from the show, or around $16.6 million each.
Kim’s multi-million dollar business ventures
Kim’s SKIMS shapewear launched in 2019 is also a huge revenue generator. As of 2020, it was valued at a ‘conservative $225 million’ by Forbes
Forbes estimates Kim’s fortune to be £1.8 billion. In 2014, she launched mobile game app Kim Kardashian: Hollywood and it made $1.6 million in the first five days after its release. In 2015, she released her own range of Kimojis.
But the bulk of Kim’s wealth comes thanks to her KKW Beauty company.
Kim’s $1.3million engagement ring
In 2019, the Product line raked in $100 million and she gained $200 million by selling a 20 percent stake in the company to Coty, the same company that bought Kylie’s brand.
Her SKIMS shapewear launched in 2019 is also a huge revenue generator. As of 2020, it was valued at a ‘conservative $225 million’ – a number Forbes used to value her at over $1 billion for the first time as of October that year.
In September, it was reported that Kim was starting a private equity firm, called SKKY Partners.
Kim can also earn up to $1 million for a paid Instagram post and boasts 206 million followers. But the big question is, will she be returning her $1.3million diamond engagement ring?
Who’s the winner?
Kanye has seen vast amounts of his wealth wiped out over his antisemitic comments, and he is showing no sign of repenting – doubling down on his comments and making further inflammatory media appearances.
Until recently, he was worth as much as $1.3 billion. However, that has fallen to around $400 million after brands distanced themselves from his toxic behaviour – the most notable of which being Adidas dropping Yeezys.
Meanwhile, in the almost two years since their split was announced to the world, Kim’s wealth has sky-rocketed. Forbes valued her at $1 billion for the first time in October of 2020. Now, two years later, its says she is worth $1.8 billion.
In addition, Kim has been able to hold on to their family home in the divorce.
She will also be get getting $200,000 in child support monthly, reports said on Tuesday, and the couple will share joint custody and have ‘equal access’ to their four kids North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three.
Insiders told TMZ that Kardashian will have custody of the children most of the time.
While Kanye will be holding on to some properties for now, it is unclear whether he will be able to hold on to them in the long-term after his wealth shrank.
Overall, from the outside at least, Kardashian appears to be coming out of the divorce as the clear winner.
