That’s a whole lotta’ dough!
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their “conscious uncoupling” this week…
And while their entire family has been on vaycay in the Bahamas to oddly decompress—it’s given the press plenty of time to speculate how much their net worth is, and who has the most at stake during their pending divorce!
Although many are speculating the duo is worth $140 million each, it’s highly unlikely—even when you factor in every movie, touring royalty, and album sale!
When asked about Gwyn’s earnings, Dorothy Pomerantz, L.A. Bureau Chief at Forbes explained:
“When you are in a movie like Iron Man, even if you are not the star and it makes so much money you get some of that back end. She is not getting Robert Downey Jr. money, but she still gets a taste of it. She gets money from GOOP, she gets money from her cookbooks and her TV work…She has money coming from several different sources now, because she really is a brand and when you put it all together, it is around $10 million.”
Dorothy went on to reveal that Chris is obviously the bigger earner (HELLO Coldplay money) in the relationship, so Miz Paltrow faces the most financial risk:
“Gwyneth Paltrow has a slightly bigger risk, because she sells herself as a lifestyle brand. so a lot of what she is selling is her prowess as a mother and a wife and homemaker. A split like this potentially hurts that brand, but only potentially. When you look at her movie work, it won’t affect her at all. There is no way she is not going to be cast in something because she broke up with Chris Martin. I think Gwyneth Paltrow is doing really well right now and Chris Martin is on fire, so they are both going strong in their own spheres and they will probably continue to.”
We still haven’t heard any word of a prenup, anyway—so we’ll just have to wait until the actual paperwork is filed to find out if they drew one up before the “I Do’s.”
Either way, we think they’ll both be more than financially sound!
