It seems that being a celebrity is a tough job – once you get rich, you need to stay rich to maintain that level of gorgeousness and fame. At least, that’s the truth for some celebrities, who turn into actual gold-diggers ready to do anything for money. Of course, we can’t know for sure, but some celebrity matches just don’t seem like they’ve been made in heaven. Young Playboy star marrying an old oil magnate, Kim Kardashian’s relationships with Kris Humphries, Amber Rose and her numerous men…the list goes on and on! The truth will get out one way or another, whether these celebrities like it or not. Here are 10 celebs accused of pursuing marriage for money.
Kevin Federline and Britney Spears
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline got together back in 2004, right after he dumped his pregnant girlfriend. After a short-lived fiery romance, the two divorced, leaving Britney with two sons. She later admitted that relationship with Kevin was a huge mistake, but she was still glad to have the babies. Kevin supposedly received $20,000 a month from Britney for years until he married again.
Miranda Kerr and her men
Miranda Kerr has definitely been busy over the last few decades. We genuinely believed her relationships with Orlando Bloom would last for a long time – after all, they were such an incredible couple! Alas, when Orlando’s fame (and dough) died out a bit, she moved onto the next target, hooking up with James Packer, a famous billionaire. After that didn’t work out, Miranda Kerr used her charms on Evan Spiegel, the founder of Snapchat. Needless to say, his net worth is quite remarkable.
Crystal Harris and Hugh Hefner
We aren’t doubting Hugh Hefner’s charm and charisma, but to marry an 84-year-old man you need to be either really smitten or hungry for money. The 25-year-old beauty suddenly got scared right before the marriage, but then changed her mind once again. Maybe the $5 million mansion in Hollywood Hills had something to do with it?
Heather Mills and Sir Paul McCartney
Despite having a pretty nice marriage, things got a bit ugly when Paul McCartney and Heather Mills decided to divorce. After four years of relationships, Heather Mills was planning on getting $250 million for her and their daughter, but received ‘only’ $33 million instead. That, annual child support money for Beatrice, and money for private school and nanny. Heather Mills openly expressed her disappointment, pointing out that McCartney’s net worth was around $1.6 billion.
Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson
It’s been years since the unemployed NFL player married Jessica Simpson, and guess what? Eric Johnson is still unemployed, living with Jessica Simpson and their two kids. The fashion mogul doesn’t see their relationships as faulty in any way. In fact, she confessed that her biggest mistake money-wise was marrying Nick Lachey back in the day. Go figure!
Usher and Tameka Foster
Tameka Foster went from a stylist to a wife of an R&B legend in a blink of an eye. Despite all the benefits and two sons they had together, Tameka and Usher divorced after only two years of marriage. Little is known about their divorce, but it turned out that she kept on squatting in Usher’s grand mansion for years before he pulled the plug. With $8,000 she received for child support, Tameka didn’t even think about working herself, happily living off Usher’s money even after they split.
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa get on pretty well right now, having to raise a child together and all, but right after their breakup Wiz hinted in his lyrics that she was all about money and nothing else. Amber Rose allegedly plotted to steal from Kanye West back in the day when they were still together, and that became the reason they split. She’s been seen dating plenty of men since – NBA star Terrence Ross, Odell Beckham Jr., rapper Machine Gun Kelly…Amber definitely doesn’t like to stay alone for long!
Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry
Men also know a thing or two about gold-digging. When Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry split up, the actress was forced to pay a hefty sum of $16,000 a month in child support. Needless to say, Gabriel spend those money not only to support their daughter, but on himself as well. In fact, Halle Berry has been covering his expenses for years!
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp
Despite having a family with Vanessa Paradis, Johnny Depp gave in to the relationships with his The Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard. Their marriage lasted for one year and three months, after which Amber Heard decided it was enough. During the divorce she requested a considerable amount of $50,000 a month to ‘support her lifestyle’. Being quite a successful actress herself, did she really need all that money from Depp?
Kim Kardashian and her men
Kim K is known for her love of fame and bling. She did earn a pretty large sum of money when she married Kris Humphries – some believe she received up to $2 million! Organizing all those exclusive photoshoots and the spectacular bachelorette party in Vegas. So did she marry Kanye West only for the money? Well, that we don’t know, but what we do know is that she paid as little as possible for her second wedding and earned around $21 million for the whole event (with brands wanting exposure and things like that). This lady definitely knows what she’s doing!
