Is It Love or the Love of Money? 6 Relationships We’re Not Sure About

You don’t become a celebrity by being unattractive, boring and lacking in charm. And these are certainly traits that their partners could be attracted to…could be. Sometimes it’s hard to tell with the 8 figures stamped on their foreheads.

Larry King and Shawn Southwick

People speculate because of the 20+ years between them but, Shawn had her chance to dig in Larry’s pockets in 2010 when the two filed for divorce. But, they ended up calling it off. Did she stay for love, or because the settlement wouldn’t have been worth her freedom?

Kobe Bryant and Vanessa

If Vanessa wanted to split with Kobe’s money, he gave her plenty of chances to do so—a couple dozen coed, extramarital chances. But, she stuck around for quite some time. Vanessa’s only flaw might be trying to fix broken men.

Kevin Federline and Britney Spears

He did work his way up from background dancer to bedding the main act but, if Kevin was just in it for the money, he wouldn’t have produced a couple of offspring with Britney that he’d inevitably be paying for his entire life.

Kimora Simmons and Russell Simmons

Kimora was already a well known super model when they met, but you can’t blame Kimora of looking to expand her brand. She took on all the work of Russell’s clothing line Phat Farm, and sources say the two are still amicable.

Al Reynolds and Star Jones

Al did ask for $50,000 after Star was talking smack about him on the Wendy Williams show but, look at Star! She had it going on after her weight loss. Maybe the guy was just vein.

Stedman Graham and Oprah

It’s hard not to speculate about anyone who links up with the woman who basically runs the world, but Stedman got with Oprah when her show was only launching back in 1986, having no idea what a sensation she would become. He also is the CEO of his own corporate and educational marketing firm, so he isn’t exactly hurting for money.
