You may be shocked to hear that actress Natalie Portman is a WAG, but hear us out. Her husband, Benjamin Millepied, is a professional dancer and choreographer. The world of dance is just as intensive and competitive as team sports, so he totally counts as an athlete. The couple started dating when Benjamin taught Natalie how to dance on the set of “Black Swan,” and the rest is history.
Benjamin had a successful career in ballet that helped him amass his $10 million fortune. Sadly though, the couple were revealed to be separating in 2023. And Natalie has far more in the bank. Her decades-long acting career and bank account were no doubt juiced by her role as Jane Foster in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She has a whopping $90 million net worth, which is pretty impressive.
Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz (Broken Up)
Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz met in 2006, and Jenna most likely made more money than him while they were together. Tito, a former MMA fighter, had an extremely successful athletic career and is one of the richest fighters in the world. It’s rumored that he’s worth about $20 million, thanks to his past career and current clothing line.
On the other hand, Jenna was raking in the dough in her own industry when the two were together. There are rumors that she was worth over $30 million at the height of her career, which is pretty flabbergasting. Although the two had a pretty messy separation, there’s no denying that they were the ultimate hot power couple back in the early to mid-2000s.
Shawn Johnson and Andrew East
Becoming an Olympic athlete is no easy feat, which is why gymnast Shawn Johnson is so impressive. She’s a gold and silver medalist and even competed in “Dancing With the Stars” a few years after her athletic success. To top it all off, she’s a high-achieving WAG who is married to football player Andrew East.
Shawn and Andrew are both retired from their athletic careers, and it seems Shawn made the most money. She’s worth about $9 million while her husband has a net worth of $5 million. That’s no problem for the happy couple, who now run a successful YouTube channel that has over one million followers.
Khloé Kardashian and James Harden (Broken Up)
It seems that being extremely rich is a requirement for dating a Kardashian. Khloé and famous basketball player James Harden dated for a few months in 2015. James is, by far, one of the world's highest-paid athletes. Not to mention that he’s one of basketball’s greatest shooting guards. Despite this impressive resume, some people are still surprised to discover that James is technically worth more than Khloé.
But there’s a catch that puts this former couple on our WAGS list. James has a whopping $170 million net worth, compared to Khloé’s measly $60 million. However, back when the two stars were dating, their incomes were matched. James made about $15 million a year when he was with the Houston Rockets, and Khloé made about the same with her reality show, endorsements, and investments.
Venus Williams and Hank Kuehne (Broken Up)
Venus Williams is famously one of the highest-paid tennis players in history, next to her sister Serena. So, when she dated golfer Hank Kuehne, people naturally speculated who made more money as a professional athlete. The couple was pretty private during the course of their relationship, but one thing was for sure. Serena was definitely the top breadwinner.
With Serena’s successful tennis career, high-profile brand endorsements, and other business ventures, she’s easily worth over $95 million. She was no doubt making a similar amount of money when she was with Hank, who has a net worth of $5 million. Golf is a pretty lucrative sport, but it doesn’t compare when you’re dating a top tennis player like Venus.
