Kim Kardashian West’s net worth: $1.4 billion

Reality television star and business mogul Kim Kardashian West has an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion, according to Celebrity Net Worth. She is one of the wealthiest and most famous celebrities in the world. 

Kardashian West started her ascent to fame and fortune in 2007 with a leaked private sex tape she made with her then-boyfriend, Ray J. A reality show about her family started the same year, launching Kardashian West’s career as a celebrity entertainer. 

In her early years, Kardashian West generated income through modeling, public appearances, and brand deals. In 2014, she released a mobile game, “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” that has been downloaded more than 60 million times and generated $200 million in revenue. 

She then launched her own fragrances, cosmetics, and a shapewear line, all of which became very lucrative business ventures. 

KKW Beauty has generated over $100 million in gross revenue since its creation in 2017. The brand is currently undergoing a remodel. SKIMS, the shapewear company she started in 2019, is valued at $1 billion. 

Kardashian West’s social media is another source of income for the billionaire. She has 262 million followers on Instagram and typically makes between $300,000 and $500,000 per sponsored post, even earning up to $1 million per post.

Kim Kardashian West filed for divorce from Kanye West in February 2021 after seven years of marriage. A few months later, in October, she hosted Saturday Night Live. The SKIMS mogul shared an on-screen kiss with Davidson during a skit where they played Disney’s Jasmine and Aladdin.
