How did Kim Kardashian earn her wealth and money?
Kimberly Noel Kardashian, born on 21st October 1980 in Los Angeles, California, is one of the most famous celebrities of Hollywood. She is a television personality, socialite, actress, model, and businesswoman. Kim rose to fame when she started starring in a reality television show known as Keeping Up with the Kardashians; the show is based on her family. Later, this show led to the development of two spin-offs, Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami. In no time, Kim Kardashian’s personal life was open for the public to base discussions on. She is the epitome of the notion, “famous for being famous” as per critics and admirers.
She is the daughter of Robert and Kris Jenner. She has three immediate siblings, Kourtney, Khloe, and Rob. Her mother, after her divorce with Robert Kardashian, got married to Bruce (now Caitlyn) Jenner. In the face of the marriage, Kim gained six siblings by the names of Burton, Brandon, Brody, Casey, all of whom are her step-siblings and the famous Kylie and Kendall Jenner, her half-sisters. Kim’s most primary source of income is the Keeping Up with the Kardashians app. Moreover, she has a downloadable game called Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, wherein players can create their very own virtual celebrity to enjoy the lifestyle of a superstar. This game has yielded Kim a whopping $214 million up till now and has been downloaded more than 45 million times.
Kim Kardashian was positioned at number 42 on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list past year. It is reported that, in 2014, only turning up at the events related to Keeping Up with the Kardashians garnered Kim around $38 million. In 2015, Kim released her coffee table photo book called Selfish. This book features pictures from Kim’s personal life; it tells her story through photographs, and critics went as far as to deem it “oddly moving” and “unexpectedly revealing”. She has shared her selfies, – something she’s very well known for; people even call her the “Queen of Selfies” – her family pictures, and even photos that are scandalous. Selfish initially had 500 limited signed copies which, reportedly, were sold out in a matter of mere minutes. Hence, this book must also have earned her a significant amount of money.
She also earns money via brand endorsement deals and celebrity appearances. Amidst all this, in November 2016, a CBC Marketplace program claimed that Kim earned from $75,000 to $300,000 for every Facebook, Twitter, and an Instagram post she made for endorsing several different products, which she may or may not have used herself. Furthermore, she yields some income from her partnership with Kylie Jenner’s cosmetic line when she launched a new range of lipsticks; this particular line was sold through the Kimoji app which brought a lot of money from sales.
Also, she has recently launched a clothing line for kids in collaboration with her husband, Kanye West. If it were not for the recent case of robbery and consequent radio-silence on social media that cost her money-spinning endorsement deals, Kim Kardashian right now would have been sitting with a very comfortable and grand $50.5 million.
