There’s been a lot of discussion lately about the Kardashian-Jenner family members and their net worth. Do they have any legit billionaires or not? The truth on that is up for debate.
But even if none of the KUWTK stars have reached that billionaire milestone yet, fans have begun to understand that it’s only a matter of time before one or several of them do.
It’s extraordinary to think about considering that 15 years ago, Kim Kardashian West was just a regular working girl toiling away as socialite Paris Hilton’s personal assistant and stylist.
All Kar-Jenner clan members have millions of dollars in their bank accounts, but that wealth is not evenly distributed among them. The richest person in the family also happens to be one of the youngest. Which is surprising considering she doesn’t technically have a “real job.”
Kylie Jenner made headlines in March 2019 for allegedly becoming a self-made billionaire at the age of 21. The following year, Forbes issued a retraction on their previous claims, saying Kylie had spun a “web of lies” to make it look like she had more funds than she really did.
Their revised figures placed Kylie’s net worth at $900 million, stripping her of her billionaire status but still proving she was wealthier than her sisters. But not for long.
Kim Kardashian West is flirting with a $1 billion net worth
Just after Kylie’s billionaire scandal, her older sister Kim signed a deal to sell a 20% stake in her skincare and makeup line, KKW Beauty, to Coty. The $200 million deal pushed the valuation of the brand to $1 billion, thereby inflating Kim’s personal net worth by a lot. She’s currently a 72% stakeholder in the company.
Kim’s husband Kanye West congratulated his wife on becoming a billionaire. However, his celebration was a bit immature. All evidence points to Kim currently having a net worth of $900 million just like Kylie.
That is a huge increase over her previous net worth and obviously puts her that much closer to becoming the first real Kar-Jenner billionaire.
The first billionaire will probably be Kylie Jenner or Kim Kardashian West
The next richest KUWTK alum behind Kim and Kylie is Khloé Kardashian, who has an estimated net worth of approximately $40 million. She makes most of her money from sponsored social media posts, her reality TV show salary, and collaborations such as her Good American denim line.
It seems like Khloé has a long way to go before reaching the status of wealth her sisters have, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. With a lucrative product line of her own, and by capitalizing on her popularity, there’s a decent chance Khloé could earn a lot more in the coming years.
Other Kardashian-Jenner net worths
Meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian is worth around $35 million, which she earned through her lifestyle brand and e-commerce site alongside her reality show salary. Kendall Jenner had a net worth of $18 million in 2018, which was strange considering she was the only family member with an actual career. Sources estimate her funds at closer to $45 million now thanks to her supermodeling gigs.
Will the next billionaire be Kylie or Kim, or will one of the other sisters shock everyone and reach that milestone first? We’ll find out soon enough.
