Kim Kardashian Net Worth – It’s More Than You’d Think
In case you hadn’t already realised it, the Kardashians are rolling in the dough. From their crazily successful reality show, to their never-ending Instagram endorsement deals – the Kardi-clan’s pockets are pretty deep (to put it lightly).
While Kylie is out here breaking records for being the first ‘self-made’ billionaire thanks to her super-successful cosmetics line, the entire family’s affluence comes down to one member in particular: this icon…
Kim rose to fame in rather embarrassing way after that risqué tape was leaked online…
But there was light at the end of the humiliating tunnel (and a whole load of cash) for the curvaceous star after she was offered a deal to start her own reality TV show ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’, sky-rocketing herself and her fam to ultimate stardom.
Nowadays – with her crazy fame – it’s no shock that Kim’s fortune is ginormous. But, could you possibly imagine just how much the bootylicious social media personality is worth?
We’ll give you a clue: take your very wildest dreams and triple it. Yup – we really mean that.
Here’s everything you need to know about Kim Kardashian’s net worth (get ready to feel very, very poor)…
We might as well kick off with a bang for Kim’s most profitable venture yet (no, we’re NOT talking about that sex tape, cheeky). If there was one thing that would guarantee Kim’s fortune to become even heftier, it’s her very own makeup range: KKW Beauty.
Unfortunately her products don’t promise to transform customers instantly into a curvaceous brunette beauty, but if you’re going to attempt to contour, turning to Kim’s makeup range means you’re in pretty good hands.
So, is it even that surprising when you hear that in 2018, her business had earned $100 million in revenue – of which Kim owns the full 100%?
Remember Her Mobile Game?
Cast your minds back to 2016, when Kim’s mobile game ‘Kim Kardashian: Hollywood’ first came out. We all eagerly downloaded it, enjoying spending most of our evenings (guilty) attempting to increase the fame and reputation of our character.
Well, apparently it wasn’t just us who were obsessed – the game had been downloaded a whopping 45 million times, making $160 million in profit. Although that’s more money that KKW Beauty – Kim ‘only’ owned a third of the venture, taking home $45 million.
She Makes ALOT From ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’
Keeping Up with the Kardashians goes waaay back into ye olden days of 2007 – and Kim’s been earning plenty ever since.
It was in 2015, after the show had been hitting targets for 8 years, that E! agreed a $80 million deal to keep the Kardashian clan filming. In 2017, they agreed to another deal, this time it was around the $100 million mark – $180 mill isn’t bad for 4 years work!
So, how much do each family member get? Although Kris Jenner tried to claim that everyone gets paid almost equally, it’s thought that Kim, Khloe and Kourtney get about 50-60% of the contract, while the rest of the family get what’s left over.
For Kim, this means she’s potentially raking in 20 percent of $100 million for KUWTK.
She’s Made Millions On Real Estate
As if they needed any more cash, Kim and Kayne have made a ton of dollar buying and refurbishing properties. They recently sold their Bel-Air mansion for $17.8 million after buying it for just $9 million.

Nowadays, Kimye live in Hidden Hills, and listen to this. They bought their house for $20mill, but it’s now worth $60 MILLION!
Then There’s All Her Endorsements
In an era where social media yields huge power of product sales, there’s no icon more influential than Kim herself. With over 113 million Instagram followers, she’s endorsed all different kinds of products.

From sportswear and sunless tanner; to lollipops and laser-hair removal, there’s tonnes of companies who’ve paid the star top dollar to get their product Kim Kardashian-West approved.
If you’re wondering how much she earns per post, get this. She admitted she was offered (and rejected) $1 million dollars by Fashion Nova. That was just to post just one picture on her Instagram…
Not All Her Businesses Went Well: The Kardashian Kard
Ending in PR disaster, the Kardashian sisters released a credit card. They hoped to make money in the financial sector (whilst getting teenagers into debt…).
We really don’t know what they were thinking… but luckily, because the card fees were so high per year, the public complained/mocked the situation that the family decided it was best for everyone that the card was finally pulled from the market.
As a member of the public put it:
“The idea of taking any hint of financial advice from Kim Kardashian is silly. She’s a woman who has been confronted by her family about being a shopping addict.But it sounds like the makings of a ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit.”
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
So, What’s Her Total Net Worth?
According to Forbes, the Kim Kardashian’s net worth is around the $350 million mark. But this, combined with Kayne’s wealth of around $160 million, the power couple are worth $510 million. Yelp.
