Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are getting divorced after a decade of marriage, and it’s all been very dramatic. One might even say you could make a whole season of reality TV based on the drama! How convenient! But here’s the thing: On top of “marital misconduct” accusations and cheating rumors, it’s still unclear where Jay and Kristin’s prenup stands—that is, if they even have one. In a clip from Very Cavallari, Jay says he “owns” half of Kristin’s store and she replies, “We might want to work on that prenup,” which, okay, yeah—things seem potentially messy.

Sooooo, how much money does Kristin have in the bank? A lot. Here’s a breakdown of her net worth, which—to be clear—she amassed with no help from Jay, bye!

Her Reality TV Legacy Is Iconique

Kristin got started on Laguna Beach when she was just a junior in high school, and she made enough money for it to significantly impact her life. Here’s what she told InStyle:

“[Before Laguna Beach], I was a hostess at a restaurant in Dana Point, California, called the Salt Creek Grille and that was a really big deal for me. I got that job when I was 15. I want to say I made $8 an hour. The second season [of that show], I used my paycheck to get a BMW X5. That was a really big moment for me, especially because the car that I got when I was 16 was an 11-year-old Isuzu Trooper that broke down on me all the time. I hated it, especially being in Laguna Beach where all of my friends had brand-new Mercedes. And when I was 18, I bought my first pair of Christian Louboutin shoes.”

Kristin went on to join The Hills when Lauren Conrad left the show in Season 5, and according to The Daily Beast, she took home $90,000 an episode. She was on the show for 22 episodes, and MATH tells me she made $1,980,000 total.

Since then, Kristin has starred in a buncha straight-to-DVD movies and a few failed TV shows (not to be harsh, but it’s true!), but she hit it big with Very Cavallari on E!. Unclear what she makes per episode of the show, but it’s extremely successful so let’s assume at least $90K if not more.

Those Public Appearances Paid Off

Kristin is pretty thirsty when it comes to doing appearances and sponsored content, which makes a lot of sense considering she gets paid so. much. freakin’. money. Her Instagram endorsement fee is unknown, but The Daily Beast reported that she earns about $20,000 to $25,000 per public appearance.

Also, not to be awkward, but can we talk about this appearance Kristin did with Jay Cutler when she told a fan not to get married? I lol/cry.

Uncommon James = Her Biggest Moneymaker

Like literally every other celebrity under the sun, Kristin has her own personal brand called Uncommon James, which sells home goods and jewelry. And it’s been very successful. As of July 2019, the company was bringing in $20 million in revenue—and while obviously, Kristin doesn’t get to keep all that (she has overhead and taxes, duh), she’s clearly making an impressive profit.

So, What’s Her Net Worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kristin has $30 million in the bank. But keep in mind that she just dropped $5 million on a new house thanks to her ongoing divorce from Jay Cutler, so, uh, let’s call it $25 million. Here’s to hoping she keeps it locked up.
