Step aside, Kylie Jenner! Kendall Jenner has officially surpassed her sister in the number one highest paid female on Instagram. According to HollywoodLife, Kendall has earned $15.9 million just by posting on Instagram in 2019. Not a bad gig. Kendall beat out Kylie by a landslide. Kylie only raked in $3.8 million even after the "Rise and Shine" phenomenon and the release of her 22nd birthday makeup collection. Looks like Kendall Jenner's years of modeling experience is giving her that extra edge.
Well, the modeling and the promotional ads. Kylie only posted three ads while Kendall posted an impressive 26 ads. That might explain it.
Between the two sisters is pop singer Selena Gomez as the 2nd highest paid Instagram poster making $8 million. Khloe Kardashian and actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas round out the top 5 in 4th and 5th respectively. Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski were also top contenders. Unfortunately,, there is a glass ceiling even in the world on Instagram posting.
The wage gap between the highest-paid female Instagram poster versus the highest-paid male Instagram poster is appalling. While Kendall made $15.9 million on Instagram, the highest-paid male, soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, earned $47.8 million dollars. Even the second-highest-paid male, soccer player Lionel Messi, surpassed Kendall with $23.3 million.
Evidence proves that Kendall Jenner has been working extra hard for that number one spot. In December alone, the model posted not one but two suggestive advertisement posts.
On December 5th she posted a topless picture with only a Longchamp bag to cover her chest. A few weeks later, on December 20th, Kendall gave fans an early Christmas present. She posted a video in bed wearing nothing but Calvin Klein underwear sharing her biggest turn-ons. Someone who is confident, and I really like a witty person,” Kendall revealed. “Someone who can make me laugh. The sillier you are, the more yourself you are, the more unfiltered you are. I think the better.”
Kylie is also currently in hot water after buying her 1-year-old daughter a diamond ring.
"I know people work for their money, but that money could have gone to putting food in someone's body, paying for medical bills, or planting trees,” complained one fan on Kylie's Instagram video.
"She really got a one year old a diamond ring," another wrote. "The Kardashian/Jenner clan really go out their way to buy stupid expensive gifts."
"Nothing more classless than always showing how rich you are 🙄," another fan added.
