Rumor Has It That They Married For The Money
Elton John and David Furnish

The problem with the rumor on married for the money is that almost everyone that marries someone richer, or any man that marries an older woman who has some money almost always automatically falls in this class.

While of course there are so many who marry for money, others marry for other sane and insane reasons which only they can think. But shouldn’t we all marry for something?

Here are some that have been rumored to have married for the money:

David Furnish

Furnish is definitely top in most married for the money rumor. How true that is, who can ever tell? The thing, however, is that Furnish was not popular until he met and married Elton John. In fact, this has been described as a huge success which is more than his advertising Job before the marriage. What gets the rumor even louder is that people still do not believe Furnish is gay.

Kim Kardashian

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

“Now I ain’t sayin’ she’s a gold digger… But she ain’t messin’ with no broke niggas.” After dropping the nice lines, Kanye went ahead to marry Kim Kardashian, who according to rumors, married him for the money. How come she hasn’t dated anyone who is not rich and famous?

Melania Knauss-Trump

Yeah, that’s what they said. They wonder what will make her marry Trump, considering it is Trump who is 24 years older than her, apart from the money. Melania was a model and waitress before she met and married billionaire Trump. If she married for the money, it may as well land her in the White House.

Kevin Federline

Married for the Money
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

Kevin was around celebrities for a long time as a result of his dancing career. So getting hooked to celebrities was not too big a deal, having danced for people including Michael Jackson and Destiny’s Child.

He was first engaged to Shar Jackson from 2001 to 2004. During the time she had two children for the dancer. In 2004 they separated and Federline met Britney Spears whom he proposed to, three months after they met. The marriage ended two years later with Fed-Ex as Federline was dubbed, winning custody of their two kids, and some annual bucks.

Anna Nicole Smith

Married for the money
J. Howard Marshall and Anna Nicole Smith

Anna was a 26-year-old beautiful stripper when she met 89-year-old J. Howard Marshall. The difference between Marshall and most men his age was that he was a billionaire oil tycoon. Before long, the two got married.

Marshall died a year later, with nothing for Anna in his will. Still, she fought a long legal battle with his sons to get part of the dead man’s wealth. The case dragged to the supreme court and continued until her death in 2007.

Nick Cannon

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Nick is the sweet guy who married a sweet woman, Mariah Carey. It should be normal, except that Mariah is 11 years older, and while she was reportedly worth $500 million, Nick was said to worth $25 million. The marriage lasted 7 years and produced beautiful kids. While many would consider that Nick married for genuine reasons, rumor has it he married for the money.

Ivana Trump

What is it with the women Trump is hooking up with? Or rather, what is wrong with Trump? Like Melania, it is believed that Ivana before her, married the former The Apprentice boss for the papers. Ivana landed the man in 1977 and by 1992, they were divorced. Ivana left the marriage $20 million richer than she came. She also got a $14 million family estate in Connecticut and an annual alimony of $350,000.

Rossano Rubicondi

Many years after Ivana Trump got away from Donald Trump, she landed herself Rossano who was 24 years her junior, and who a tremendous amount of people are saying married her for the money. It would appear very true since as soon as the knot was tied in 2008 Rossano went off trying to get fame for himself and sleeping with different women. Before long, the marriage came to an end. Justine Timberlake’s What Goes Around Comes Around seemed to be playing somewhere close.

Oksana Grigorieva

Oskana didn’t marry, but at least she managed to get on the list. She was a songwriter and singer who got famous more for dating Mel Gibson than for her Music. She hooked up with Gibson after she left her husband and the father of her child. Soon she had a child for the legendary director, then things came crashing. For Oskana to walk away and raise the child, Gibson gave her $15 million, but she decided it was too small, so she headed for the court. In no time, the case was over and she was out with $750,000 and a house to live in till the child turned eighteen.
