Who wants to marry a millionaire? These celebrities do! News that royal-by-association Pippa Middleton is off the market after saying “I do” to her extremely wealthy hedge fund manager boyfriend, James Matthews, got us thinking about other celebrities who have super-rich significant others. Read on to find out who’s raking in the cash:
1. Miranda Kerr
The stunning Australian model got engaged earlier this week to Evan Spiegel. Who’s that you say? Only the founder of one of the most popular social media platforms in the world! The self-made 26-year-old tech mogul is the mastermind behind Snapchat and has a net worth of US$2.1 billion.
2. Alessandra Ambrosio
The Victoria’s Secret angel has been dating her beau, Jamie Mazur, since 2008. He’s a Californian businessman with a reported bank balance that hits US$20 million.
3. Geri Halliwell
Former Spice Girl, Geri Halliwell, nabbed a man in the fast lane. Her husband Christian Horner is the current team manager of the Red Bull Racing Formula One team and has a net worth of US$7.5 million.
4. Janet Jackson
In 2012, Janet Jackson proved that she has expensive taste when she wed Qatari businessman, Wissam Al Mana. He is said to be worth US$1 billion and made his fortune through multiple fashion ventures and real estate deals in the Middle East.
5. Jerry Hall
Following the breakdown of her 15-year relationship with Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall (pictured here with her four children) moved on by tying the knot with media tycoon Rupert Murdoch. 80-year-old Murdoch is apparently the 77th richest man in the world with a net worth of US$12.7 billion.
6. Mariah Carey
Another Australian with media connections, James Packer is engaged to musical diva Mariah Carey. There are no details yet on the couple’s wedding plans but with James’s bank account topping US$3.9 billion, it’s sure to be a lavish affair.
7. Michelle Yeoh
Veteran actress Michelle Yeoh may have made her name in Hollywood but the Asian superstar is making her mark in the world of racing too. She’s been in a long-term relationship with Jean Todt, the president of F1’s governing body, who has an estimated net worth of US$16 million. The couple are seen here flanking UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
8. Nicky Hilton
The lesser known Hilton heiress, Nicky already has a pretty high net worth herself at US$20 million. She married into old money last year though when she got hitched to James Rothschild, one of the biggest names in European banking. He is reportedly worth US$60 million.
9. Reese Witherspoon
In Reese Witherspoon’s case, it’s her husband Jim Toth who profits from their marriage. While Jim has a respectable US$4 million net worth, his Oscar-winner wife outshines him with an US$80 million valuation on her head.
10. Salma Hayek
Salma Hayek posted the adorable picture above on her Instagram proving that she and her billionaire husband, François-Henri Pinault, are still very much in love after seven years of marriage. Pinault is the CEO of Kering, which owns Gucci & Yves Saint Laurent, and has a net worth of US$13.8 billion.
11. Yolanda Hadid
Yolanda Hadid – mother to supermodels Gigi & Bella – has a taste for the finer things in life. She was previously married to real estate developer Mohamed Hadid (net worth US$200 million) before moving on to Grammy-winning music producer David Foster who has a not-too-shabby US$30 million valuation. Alas, the pair couldn’t make it work and are in the midst of a divorce after 9 years together.
12. Elle Macpherson
Leggy supermodel, Elle Macpherson, has been in and out of love with a couple of rather super wealthy men but she settled down with her richest lover yet, Jeffrey Soffer, in 2013. The real estate mogul has a reported net worth of US$1 billion.
