Taylor Swift vs. Karlie Kloss: Who Has a Higher Net Worth?

Singer Taylor Swift has plenty of famous friends. At one point, her closest one was model Karlie Kloss. However, they haven’t been seen together in years. Learn about their friendship, why Swift’s fans think they stopped talking, and which has a higher net worth.

Swift and Kloss were first photographed together at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. While the latter walked the runway as one of the brand’s famed Angels, the artist performed for the crowd. They interacted during the show, and not long after, were spotted together out in public.

According to the two, their connection was “instantaneous.” “We were just like, ‘You. My friend. Now,'” said Swift in a 2015 Vogue cover story she and Kloss shared. They described themselves as “normal people,” though another pal, Lena Dunham, said that together, they look like “Amazon twins.”

From there, their friendship only grew. As far as the paparazzi were concerned, they were basically inseparable throughout 2014. They were photographed shopping, attending a New York Knicks game, and even at the American Music Awards, where Swift brought Kloss as her date. It’s hard to imagine two closer friends.

In 2015, Swift brought together Kloss, Dunham, and multiple other members of her “girl squad” for a special project. Her star-studded “Bad Blood” music video featured Kloss as Knockout. The model and others from the video then joined Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards, where it won Video of the Year.

By 2016, Swift and Kloss’s friendship became, at the very least, less public. It’s unclear exactly when, or why, they stopped hanging out, but Swift didn’t attend either of the Koding with Klossy founder’s weddings to Joshua Kushner in 2018 and 2019. And Kloss wasn’t at Swift’s big 30th birthday party in December 2019.

While some believe Swift and Kloss were actually a couple and Kloss getting married ended this, others feel that it was who the latter associated with that drove them apart. Most notably, music manager Scooter Braun, who Kloss was spotted with amidst his raging feud with Swift over the rights to her master recordings.

Now, Swifties have pin-pointed lyrics they believe are about Kloss. In the Evermore bonus track, “It’s Time to Go,” the artist sings about saying goodbye to a traitorous friend: “When the words of a sister come back in whispers/That prove she was not in fact who she seemed/Not a twin from your dreams/She’s a crook who was caught.”

Who is worth more, Taylor Swift or Karlie Kloss?

It’s difficult to determine precisely how much Kloss is worth. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she’s worth an estimated $40 million herself. However, her husband’s personal net worth is thought to be around $800 million, and, depending on how their assets are divided, that could affect hers as well.

Though many presume Swift and long-time boyfriend Joe Alwyn are married, for now, her net worth has been calculated separately. As one of the highest-paid musicians working today, Swift reportedly brings in around $150 million each year. As of January 2021, her net worth is estimated to be $400 million.
