Kim and Kanye 'to make fortune from TV wedding'

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian could reportedly make over £18 million if she marries Kanye West on TV.

The reality star famously broadcast her nuptials to Kris Humphries last year, before filing for divorce just 72 days later.

She is now dating Kanye and while they are not engaged yet, it's been claimed Kim stands to make big money if they do tie the knot.

"Kim's marriage to Kris was sold for around £9 million to the E! network, but with Kanye involved, that figure could double. She could also make around £1 million selling her bridal shower pictures and bachelorette party," an insider told Heat magazine.

On top of the cash from screening the wedding, Kim and Kanye could also make money from selling their wedding pictures. It's been suggested that if the rapper roped in his A-list pals such as Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles, as much as £2 million could be made.

The pair will also save when it comes to engagement rings, as they could be lavished with freebies from companies keen to get more exposure.

It's thought Kanye is keen to marry his girlfriend, but won't propose until her marriage with Kris is officially over. They have struggled to come to a divorce agreement as he wants the union annulled, claiming Kim never intended to stay married to him. She has denied the claim.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
