Since Kanye West's 2005 hit "Gold Digger" resurrected the mildly offensive term and brought it to the forefront of pop culture jargon in the most creative way since The Gold Diggers of 1933, women have gotten an increasingly worse reputation as child-support chasers with baby daddies all over town. But let's get real: Both sexes have the capability to marry for the money. Whether there were prenups or media deals, true Cupid-striking love or a simple, fledgling friendship, there are a slew of egregious male gold diggers out there worthy of a mention in Kanye's rap.
Ranging from socialites to aspiring realty TV stars to the just plain bizarre, these men show that, depending on your integrity (or lack thereof), the baby daddy-divorce-media drama is worth it — at least, monetarily.
Who are famous gold diggers? This list will answer your question.
