Her 2011 wedding to Kris Humphries managed to net Kim Kardashian a reported $18 million, not bad for a union which only lasted 72 days.
But the reality star is about to make even more cash with her third marriage to Kanye West later this month.
According to a new In Touch report, the 33-year-old reality star is 'cutting deals left and right' in order to minimise expenditure and maximise profits for herself and the rest of the family.
Despite not letting the cameras in for the actual ceremony, taking place in France, Kim is allowing E! to film 'everything leading up to and after' the big day.
"She's taping everything else so she can get things for free in exchange for the exposure," a Kardashian source told the magazine.
Another insider added: "They realised how much their wedding was costing, so they told E! they wouldn't allow parts of it to be taped unless the network offered them more than $15 million, which is what Kim got for her wedding to Kris Humphries."
"Her mom couldn't help herself either. Kris is trying to get them another $4 million for their wedding photos."
The famously extravagant couple's wedding will certainly not come cheap with airfares, couture dresses and expensive gift bags all adding up, so it's no wonder that Kim hopes to minimise her outlay.
"Kim made millions off her last wedding on top of everything that was paid for," the source said.
"She understands the business of having a televised wedding."
The happy couple also bagged $1 million from People magazine for exclusive shots of the apparently joyous occasion.
Even before the big day, Kim was paid $500,000 to host her bachelorette party at Tao in Las Vegas.
Despite the reports, Kim's mother Kris Jenner insisted her daughter 'didn't make a dime' out of the wedding.'
In an interview addressing widespread criticism of Kim's split from Kris Humphries, her mom said said: "The one thing that is the most annoying is the rumour that she made millions off of this wedding."
"She didn’t make a dime and, actually, spent millions of dollars on the wedding, so it’s not something that she thought would ever not be happily ever after."
