It’s been more than a decade since ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ first aired on our television screens and since then, the Kardashian sisters have become one of the richest families in Hollywood. After 20 glorious seasons, the show has finally come to a conclusion and there’s no denying they made their money’s worth throughout the show’s lengthy run.
Between their countless companies, endorsement deals and paid appearances, this family has turned into a money-making machine.
As of July 2021, it’s Kim with a cool $1.4 billion to her name. She’s followed by youngest sis Kylie with $700 million, but then it’s a big step down to the rest of their relatives.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, and Kim’s annual salary is estimated to be between $50 million and $80 million each year. The net worth has surged in recent years, after the introduction and success of KKW Beauty.
But, the question remains how does Kim manage her finances?
The majority of Kardashian’s wealth is derived from her KKW Beauty company and SKIMS apparel brand, as well as reality TV income, endorsements, and smaller investments reported MarketRealist.
She began her reality television career earning $15,000 each episode for her role on the E! network’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Furthermore, she made half a million dollars for every episode. In 2015, she made $53 million from her TV program and other pursuits, making her the highest-paid celebrity that year.
In 2020, Kardashian sold a 20 percent stake in KKW Beauty to cosmetics conglomerate, Coty, for $200 million, valuing the company at $1 billion.
Well apart from all of that, Kim also earns a lot of money from social media. She charges up to $500,000 for a single Instagram post, drawing in Instagram earnings of between $1 million and $2 million per month.
To everyone’s surprise, she also receives residual income from downloads of her mobile game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, which has generated $200 million in revenue.
For the unversed, Kardashian first came to public attention as a friend and stylist to Paris Hilton. However, her fame skyrocketed after her 2002 sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray J was leaked in 2007.
