In case you haven’t noticed, the Kardashians are rich rich. And while Kylie Jenner’s “billionaire” status was a topic for debate for a bit, the entire family’s wealth comes down to another, actual billionaire. Yup, you guessed it: We’re talking about Kim K. herself.

It has been a wild ride for Kim—and the details of some of her business and TV ventures are still shrouded in mystery. But thanks to what we know about KKW Beauty SKKN and Skims, she's absolutely made her $$$. All of the reality TV star's other projects (and their *chef's kiss* campaigns) don’t even come close to how much she makes with those two.

A teeny-tiny wrinkle: her divorce with Kanye, which was finalized in November 2022. The two had a prenup, and there was def some *money dramas* that happened. Don’t worry, though—Kim’s net worth is still enormous even after the whole thing lol. Let’s get into it, but first, I’d like to issue an apology to my bank account because it’s feeling very attacked right now.

Kim Is Officially a Billionaire

Yup! In April 2021, thanks to a combo of KKW Beauty, Skims, TV shows, endorsements, and smaller investments (more on all that in just a sec), Forbes officially declared Kim a billionaire. Then, in January 2022, the publication revealed that after a round of funding and a new valuation for Skims, its founder's net worth jumped to a whopping $1.7 billion. Casual.

It’s worth noting, though, that Forbes has been (sometimes very) wrong before when it comes to Kardashian $$$ and even previously revised its estimation of Kim’s net worth in October 2020 from $900 million to $780 million due to a “weakness in cosmetics sales.” So take it all with a grain of salt, is what I’m saying!

KKW Beauty Was Kim’s Biggest Moneymaker

According to Forbes, KKW Beauty was Kim’s most profitable venture—until Skims entered the chat. In summer 2018, the business earned $100 million in revenue, and Kim owned 100 percent of it.

In June 2020, Kanye claimed that Kim’s massive beauty deal with Coty pushed her into billionaire territory, but at the time, Forbes quickly shot down that claim.

FYI, Kim launched KKW Beauty in 2017 with Creme Contour Kits priced at $48, and she sold around 300,000 units within just two hours, which comes to more than $14 million—a financial success in spite of the brand being accused of using blackface in its promotional imagery. Forbes later estimated her 72 percent stake to be worth about $500 million, which is truly beyond mind-blowing.

However!! Kim doesn't get much more $$$ from the brand, since back in 2021 she announced that it would officially be closing—for now, anyway. The entrepreneur took to Instagram and shared in a since-deleted post that the brand’s website would be “shutting down” to make way for a new direction...aka SKKN by Kim. “To our loyal customers, it all started with a contour kit and expanded to eyes, lips, body and many incredible collections over the past four years,” she wrote. Since then, SKKN by Kim has expanded into cosmetics, making it a full-circle moment with KKW Beauty.

Don’t Forget About Her Iconic Mobile Game!

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood is definitely not as big of a thing as it once was, but back in 2016, it earned Kim so much money that she ended up on the cover of Forbes.

Magazine, Hair, Hair coloring, Publication, Black hair, Material property, Long hair, Step cutting, Brown hair, Media,

At the time, the magazine reported that Kim’s game had been downloaded 45 million times and made $160 million in revenue. Yes, that’s more money than KKW Beauty had made—but the key difference is that Kim once owned 100 percent of her beauty biz, whereas she took home “only” $45 million of that $160 mil.

Also, don’t forget, she used to have a “Kimoji” app—but it’s defunct now. Truly the end of an era.

Skims Has Made Millions

Skims is one of Kim’s latest business ventures, and according to TMZ, her initial launch made $2 million in just a few minutes. Cool-cool-cool. In July 2023, the New York Times estimated that after four years, the apparel company, "has raised $270 million in a new funding round that values it at $4 billion...That’s up from the $3.2 billion valuation investors gave the company last year." Mind = blown.

She Made SO MUCH from her reality shows

Keeping Up With the Kardashians officially ended in 2021, but it made Kim a lot, a lot, a lot of money. Before we get to her specific slice of the pie, here’s a quick rundown on how much the family’s contract was worth: In 2015, E! agreed to an $80 million deal to keep the show on the air, and then it agreed to another “below $100 million” deal in 2017. That amounts to $180 million total in just four years, which is just…wow.

So how much did Kim get? While Kris Jenner tried to claim that “everybody gets paid pretty much equally,” TMZ reported that Kim split about 50 percent to 60 percent of the family’s contract with Khloé and Kourtney, while the rest of the family got the leftovers. If this is true, Kim got paid 20 percent of around $100 million for KUWTK, aka $20 million.

Obviously, the Kardashians have ended their contract with E! and are now working with Hulu. According to Variety, they will collectively earn nine figures (wheee). We don’t know much beyond that at the moment, but Khloé did say, “It has to be a good fit, and Hulu was just the perfect fit for us. It can’t just be for monetary gain. That doesn’t seem to work for us.” Interesting!!

And she probably makes a killing on American Horror Story, too

Ever since she hosted SNL, Kim has ventured into the world of acting and has signed on for some major projects. The first is American Horror Story, and while the exact amount she's made hasn't been disclosed, we can assume it's a pretty penny.

In December 2023, Deadline reported that Kim signed on to star in a legal drama series produced by AHS creator Ryan Murphy, so it's safe to assume she's making major money from that, too!

She’s flipped millions’ worth of real estate

It might not be their day jobs, but Kim and Kanye West made a ton of money flipping properties. Back in 2017, the couple sold their Bel-Air mansion (which they bought for $9 million) for $17.8 million, earning $8.8 million in the process. According to TMZ, “The sale stands as the most expensive sale ever in the exclusive Bel-Air Crest community.”

Kim and Kanye reportedly paid $40 million for their current home and sunk another $20 million into renovations, and a source told Page Six that it caused an issue in their divorce settlement talks. Here’s what the Page Six source said:

“Kim is trying to get Kanye to turn over the Calabasas house to her, because that’s where the kids are based and growing up. That is their home. She owns all the land and adjoining lots around the house but Kanye owns the actual house. They’ve both put a lot of money into renovating it.”

And Then There Are Her Endorsements

Kim has worked with many brands over the years, even appearing in Super Bowl commercials:

But nowadays, she does mostly Instagram endorsements, and has even hawked celeb faves like SugarBearHair, on top of promoting her other family business, Kardashian Kloset:

If you want an idea of how much Kim gets paid per IG, she seemingly admitted that she was offered (and turned down) a $1 million deal with Fashion Nova to post just one picture.

How Does Kimye’s Divorce Impact Her Net Worth, You Ask?

Kay, so Kim and Kanye’s settlement talks were not public, but back in January 2021 Page Six claimed that they had a prenuptial agreement, which reportedly guaranteed Kim $1 million for every year of marriage to Kanye (they were married six years).

Kim also allegedly got to keep the gifts Kanye got her, which included millions of dollars’ worth of art and jewelry. There was *divorce drama* around Kanye trying to block her from transferring assets out of any of her trusts, to which Kim retorted, “I do not believe it is just or equitable to impose limitations on my ability to move forward with my life and earn a living.” The two are, however, officially divorced, so clearly any issues obvi got sorted out!

So, What’s Kim Kardashian's Total Net Worth in 2024?

Oh, just a totally-not-casual $1.7 billion bucks. Kim, you're doing great, sweetie!!!
