5 Men Who Married Rich Women

Turns out women aren’t the only ones who can marry rich. In this article, we’ll look at 5 men who successfully turned the stereotype on its head by marrying women in a higher income bracket. Though some of these couples are no longer together anymore, these guys were at the front of the pack, in terms of being trend setters. And in a modern world where women are getting higher educations than men, are working more hours, and are beginning to get paid more, why not?

1) Man who married a rich woman: Kris Humphries & Kim Kardashian
While Kris Humphries is a rich boy and professional basketball player, his wealth is paled by the mass Kim Kardashian has accrued from her hit TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Humphries daddy was an original investor of 5 Guys Burgers in his hometown of Minnesota, plus his $3.2 million a year contract puts him somewhere near $8 million in wealth. Kim is said to easily cover that with her net worth of more than $35 million.

2) Man who married a rich woman: Britney Spears & Kevin Federline
KFed changed his whole life when he got hitched to Britney Spears. Not only did he start a family, and watch her decline into drug frenzies, he became a millionaire. And even if Briney is a crazy gal, she is smart. She had Kevin Federline sign a very strict prenup agreement that left him with a settlement of $1 million. However, KFed does get $20,000 a month in child support payments due to Britney’s battling addiction. So, he didn’t end up so bad in the end. Let’s see 250k per year for 18 years… that’s easily another 3 million. Not bad for a backup dancer.

3) Man who married a rich woman: Chris Judd & J. Lo
When we say, Chris Judd, you guys go, who? Yup, he was a JLo mistake from back in the day. They met during the shooting of one of JLo’s videos and soon married. Judd was the dance choreographer. Not sure what it is about women and dancers. Anyway, when their short-lived marriage ended, JLo had to pay Judd $15 million in settlement costs. Ouch! That is one expensive divorce lesson. Good thing is, she will only have to pay for that once.

4) Man who married a rich woman: Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey
Nick Cannon. Not sure what he ever really did outside of some TV and Drum Line. Mariah Carey on the other hand has one several Grammy and Billboard awards and sold more than 200 million albums worldwide, making her one of the biggest-selling female artists in music history. And while Nick Cannon is somehow alleged to be worth $25 million, Mariah Carey is surely worth at least a reported net worth of $225-$500 million dollars, making her one of the richest women in the world.

5) Man who married a rich woman: Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown
Let’s face it, after New Edition and his short-lived solo career that coincided with the Ghostbusters soundtrack, Bobby Brown didn’t really ever do a whole lot except marry Whitney Houston and do lots and lots of drugs. And while it isn’t certain about how much he benefited, we do know that Bobby Brown was married to Whitney Houston for 15 years and during some of the most lucrative points of her $240 million career. And while their divorce left Bobby Brown with almost nothing, he did have a good run for those 15 years.
