Kim Kardashian is proud to have her own, separate, finances.
Kim and her children, son Saint and daughter North, are protected if Kim’s marriage to Kanye West were to end (it would be Kim’s third divorce).
Over the past few days Kanye has claimed to be in $53 million of personal debt. He quickly clarified this is not true. But he does finance some of his own projects (like work on his fashion line). He is spending money that he is not getting back. But he is still a millionaire.
In either case Kim is financially independent.
“She feels good that she has her own money if things ever go south, but of course it stresses her out a little that they even have to think about finances at all,” reveals a source.
“Their finances are separate, but they don’t keep secrets from each other, and when it comes to things for the kids, the house they’re working on, they share expenses,” adds the source.
Previously another source told PEOPLE that Kim is sick of Kanye’s social media meltdowns (fans speculate that the “leak” is Kris Jenner who hopes to make Kim sympathetic in the event of a divorce).
“What causes friction in the marriage… is Kanye’s compulsive tweeting,” admitted the source. “Kim can’t stand it. She is all for self-promotion, but doesn’t approve of Twitter drama.”
