Kourtney Kardashian: Net Worth And Rise Of The Kardashians

Kourtney Kardashian’s net worth is as staggering as her family’s sudden catapult to fame. One of three socialite sisters, Kourt has climbed to the top.

Born and raised in Los Angeles to wealthy parents Kris and Robert Kardashian, Kourt certainly didn’t come from humble beginnings…

The Kardashian clan have successfully managed to build themselves a reality empire. Who would have thought a leaked sex tape would bring so much power? (You did your parents proud, Kim!)

Alongside sisters Kim Kardashian West and Khloe, Kourtney is the eldest of the famous big-bootied trio. In addition, the family includes Kris’ (now ex) partner Caitlyn Jenner (neé Bruce Jenner) and their daughters Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.

The Kardashian Jenner family have brought us more drama than we could have possibly imagined, but how much do we know about Kourtney, the glam mother of three? From unplanned pregnancy to opening clothing boutiques, it’s time to take a look at Kourtney Kardashian: net worth and rise to reality!

Kourtney Kardashians’ Net Worth

Kourtney Kardashian’s net worth (2018) is reportedly worth $35 million (the least out of the sister clan!).

Youngest sister Kylie isn’t doing too bad herself, being the youngest self-made billionaire (although this has been up for debate) after the success of her lip kits and beauty line. The young business executive has managed to build a $900 million fortune in under three years. Then we here we are, the only $900 million figure in our lives being how many hours we spend on Netflix…

Being a member of such a famous family must come with its perks even though Kourt has been described as the ‘least interesting’ one to look at by Kim. Meeeeeooooowwww!!!

We’re backing you Kourtney! It’s your time to shine.

Kourtney later tells People how she told her family she was expecting:

‘It was so hard for me to tell Kim and my mom. Khloe and I called Kim on speakerphone, and I made Khloe tell her. I think Kim thought we were lying! Kim was excited, but I feel like her first reaction was like, ‘Why? What are you doing?’ It was really just shock.

‘Especially since we are so extremely close, anything that happens in our family is earth-shattering to us. But she was excited. She just wanted to make sure that I had thought this through.’
