We ain’t saying she’s a gold digger, but she ain’t messin’ with no broke… OK yes we are saying these women are celebrity gold diggers. Sorta kinda.

Let’s see…she came from nothing, she pursued Donald Sterling, she’s hot and he looks like his face is melting. Oh yeah, and she sold recordings of their phone calls to the tabloids. But, Stiviano still maintains that she is Sterling’s “everything.” No—she has his everything now, like his pride and money. Not that he didn’t deserve to have it all taken away.

Elin Nordegren

Nordegren was a nanny to the children of a friend of Tiger Woods’ when the pro golfer set his sights on her. It’s hard not to believe that Nordegren knew exactly what sort of company she’d be placing herself in by taking a nannying job with a pro golfer. And come on—she’s a Swedish model and Woods is a nerdy golfer!

Amy Irving

Irving was in an on-again-off-again relationship with Steven Spielberg, which seemed to go on every time her acting career was in danger. She was even set to play Marion Ravenwood in “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” until it came to light she was cheating on Spielberg. He took her back though, married her for four years, divorced her and gave her a $100 million settlement.

Kim Kardashian

At the age of 18, Kim eloped with her music producer boyfriend, and before they were officially divorced, she was dating singer/songwriter Ray J. Thus began a long string of famous musicians KK would date, ending in of course Kanye West (well, if they stay together, that is…) But she never actually made any money that didn’t come from these famous ties. (Sex tape, anyone?)

Kevin Federline

Working as a backup dancer, Federline could probably argue he and Britney Spears bonded over their musical inclinations. But of course when they split up, Federline weaseled his way into getting $20,000 a month in child support. That’s how much some people spend on their child in an entire year!

Anna Nicole Smith

She was 26 when she married 89-year-old oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall. C’mon now.

Johnson may never have a finger pointed at him accusing him of being a gold digger because we don’t often associate the male gender with the stereotype. However, let’s put it this way: he was jobless when he met Jessica Simpson and he still is.

Kimora Lee Simmons

Today we think of Simmons as an independent woman and a business tycoon, but her career was all boosted by her marriage to Russell Wendell Simmons—founder of Def Jam music label and Phat Farm clothing. The two met when Kimora was just 17 yeas old and Simmons was 35. Plus she never seems to stay single for long.

Gabriel Aubry

Gabriel Aubry

Sure Aubry was landing some modeling jobs with the likes of Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger but when he met Halle Berry, nobody knew his name. And by the time he divorced her, asked for $20,000 a month in alimony and $50,000 for his lawyer’s fees, everybody knew his name. Now he’s getting $16,000 in child support and doesn’t even have full-time custody.

Oksana Grigorieva

Grigorieva allegedly told a friend that she was looking for a “sugar daddy” before she met Mel Gibson. Grigorieva became pregnant with Gibson’s baby the same year she started dating him (accident or grand plan?). She produced tapes of Gibson verbally abusing her—so we’ll admit he is no angel himself—but why did she keep a tape recorder on? Maybe to sue for that pretty $750,000 she received from the actor.

Why would a woman stay with a husband who was caught cheating several times? Oh yeah, because these indiscretions end with her getting apologies in the form of a $4 million ring.

Holly Madison

Or any of “The Girls Next Door” for that matter. We’re supposed to believe that they would endure having their romantic partner regularly sleep with two other women because they loved him? No woman would love a man that put her in that position! But they would “love” a man who owns one of the most lucrative empires in the world.

When Hunter met rock star Rod Stewart, she was a 21-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model. She could have had any man in the world but, instead, she linked up with a man 24 years her senior. After 16 years of marriage, Hunter left Stewart $66 million richer than she was before she met him.

Ivana Trump

Ivana Trump knew what she was doing when she met high society tycoon Donald Trump. The two were married for almost 20 years so we do believe she planned on staying with him and living the lavish lifestyle, until Donald’s affair lead to a different ending. Nonetheless, Ivana left the marriage with a nice $20 million settlement, a $14 million house and $350,000 in annual alimony.

Arlene Silver

Oh the classic makeup artist woos the famous comedian/producer/actor story. Arlene Silver was 40 years old when she married 86-year-old Dick Van Dyke. She is just old enough for people to accept the union (It’s no “Girls Next Door” situation), but young enough and poor enough for us to raise an eyebrow.
