Kim and Kanye 'to make fortune from TV wedding'

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

Taurus:

It isn't healthy to be emotionally dependent. Becoming more self reliant should be your first order of business, especially if you're in a troubled relationship. Your partner may balk at your decision to acquire new skills, get a job or accumulate property. Pay no attention to their complaints. The sooner you carve out a niche for yourself, the happier you will be. Slowly but surely, the balance of power will be restored to your union. It's time to come into your own.More
