Kim Kardashian Is Apparently a Billionaire Now
It's no secret that the Kardashian–Jenner family is swimming in cash, but exactly how much are we talking?
Though only their own accountants know for sure, various media outlets and websites have estimated the net worth of every member of the famous clan, as well as several of the sisters' husbands and boyfriends. Here's how the family members rank.
As of April 2021, Kim is estimated to be worth $1 billion, according to Forbes. Most of her wealth comes from her KKW Beauty company and SKIMS clothing brand, along with reality TV income, endorsements, and smaller investments, according to the magazine.
In 2020, Kim followed in her sister Kylie's footsteps and sold a 20 percent stake in her KKW Beauty line to Coty for $200 million. Kim's 72 percent stake in her cosmetics brand has an estimated value of $500 million. Her majority stake of SKIMS is estimated at $225 million.
Kanye West could be worth more than $6.6 billion thanks to his fashion empire, according to financial documents obtained by the New York Post. An analysis from UBS Bank estimates that his Yeezy brand is worth $3.7 billion, and that its upcoming collaboration with Gap is worth nearly $1 billion, per the Post. He also has $122 million in cash and stock, and more than $1.7 billion in other assets including Kim Kardashian's SKIMS line, Bloomberg reported, citing financial documents provided by West's lawyer.
West's net worth has grown rapidly since Forbes estimated he was worth $1.26 billion, based on an estimate made in April 2020 (at the time West argued he was actually worth $3.3 billion). Most of the rapper and designer’s wealth is tied to his Yeezy apparel brand, which he owns 100 percent. The company has partnered with Adidas, which manufactures and markets Yeezy products.
News of West's multibillion-dollar net worth came weeks after Kim Kardashian reportedly filed for divorce.
After being named “the youngest self-made billionaire of all time” in 2019, Kylie Jenner’s net worth has declined to $700 million, according to Forbes’s estimates as of October 2020.
Jenner previously owned 100 percent of her company, Kylie Cosmetics, but sold 51 percent majority stake in January 2019 to Coty Inc. (which also owns brands like CoverGirl, Sally Hansen, and Clairol) for $600 million dollars. Per Forbes’s latest report, her stake in the company has an estimated value of $300 million. The remaining $400 million of her estimated fortune comes from “cash, cars, real estate and other investments.”
The financial outlet retracted Jenner's billionaire status in a May 2020 report, inferring that Kylie and her mother Kris Jenner may have inflated Kylie Cosmetic's earnings over the years. At the time, Jenner was worth just under $900 million following her lucrative Coty Inc. deal, before dropping to $700 million later in the year. Jenner responded to the report deeming the statements "inaccurate" and "unproven." She tweeted, "I've never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. Period."
Forbes estimates as of October 2020 that Kris's net worth is $190 million, thanks to her role as executive producer of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and her role as family "momager," taking a cut of her kids' earnings when she negotiates their deals. The magazine reports that she rakes in about $100,000 per episode of the iconic reality TV show and, according to filings released when Kylie Jenner sold a piece of her beauty brand to Coty, owns some stakes in the Kylie Cosmetics line as well. In 2016 alone, Kris earned $11.5 million, according to Forbes. She was also ranked the 84th highest-paid celebrity by Forbes in 2018, but didn't make the list in 2019.
Khloé is worth approximately $40 million, according to Money. That's thanks to her Keeping Up with the Kardashians salary, plus the money she raked in from past spinoffs. Plus, she’s involved in projects like her Good American denim line, executive-producing a true crime series called Twisted Sisters, and promoting products through endorsement deals. Amazon even sponsored her baby shower when she was pregnant with True. Forbes estimates she earned $15 million in 2016 alone.
In July 2018, Money reported that Kendall's net worth is around $18 million, but Celebrity Net Worth now calculates it to be around $45 million. The runway star can thank her work on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and her gigs as a model and brand spokesperson for fat paychecks. In 2018, she was the highest-paid model in the world for the second year in a row, Forbes reported.
Travis Scott, Kylie’s former partner and father of their daughter, Stormi Webster, has a net worth of $39.5 million, Forbes estimates as of June 2020. His fortune comes from his music career, with his albums topping the Billboard charts, and his touring gigs. His recent Astroworld tour grossed $53.5 million in 2019, according to the magazine. That same year, he was ranked number 39 in Forbes’s Highest-Paid Celebrities list.
Money estimated Kourtney's net worth at $35 million. The bulk of her fortune comes from her reality show salary, but also from her endorsement deals. She also launched her own lifestyle brand and e-commerce site, Poosh, which also likely adds to her income.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Caitlyn is worth $100 million. Along with her salaries from appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and I Am Cait on the E! network, she also published a memoir, The Secrets of My Life; makes money on the public speaking circuit; and has had several endorsement deals with companies like MAC. Plus, she has had several businesses and endorsement deals through her life tied to her status as an Olympic athlete. In late 2019, it was reported that she was making £500,00 (about $620,000) for her appearance on the reality show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here.
Disick, Kourtney Kardashian’s ex and the father of their children Mason, Penelope, and Reign Disick, is estimated to be worth around $40 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. He has appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and various spinoffs, and makes money from appearance fees and endorsement deals.
Tristan Thompson, Khloe's former partner and the father of their baby, True Thompson, is worth $45 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. And ESPN noted that in 2015, he signed a five-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers worth $82 million, or $16.4 million a year.
Celebrity Net Worth calculated Rob's net worth at $10 million, the bulk of which comes from his appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Rob & Chyna on E!
