How Much Cash Does Kylie Jenner and Kris Jenner Carry on Them?

Kylie Jenner has risen from reality television fame to something that her parents probably never dreamed of. The 21-year old is a billionaire and mogul of her Kylie Cosmetics empire, running a business that has thousands of devotees worldwide. Jenner undoubtedly lives an incredible life, with a massive fleet of vehicles, an extensive designer wardrobe, and a penchant for luxury vacations to faraway locations. Still, it might surprise her fans to learn just how much cold, hard cash Kylie Jenner actually carries with her on a day to day basis.

Kylie Jenner was only ten years old when Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered on the E! network. Although she was first introduced to viewers as an adorable preteen, over the years fans watched Jenner grow up before their eyes, developing her own unique sense of style and beginning to date.

Many wondered how Jenner would parlay her family’s fame into her own life, and whether or not she would end up doing something unique. Ultimately, Jenner surprised everyone by utilizing her passion for makeup and founding Kylie Cosmetics. Her very first product was the now-iconic “lip kit,” including a lip liner and lipstick combination. The first lip kits were a massive success, and Jenner went on to build Kylie Cosmetics into a booming business.

Thanks primarily to the success of Kylie Cosmetics, Jenner was named by Forbes as the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. Even more impressively, Jenner owns 100% of the company, which has now expanded to include Kylie Skin. Of course, Kylie Cosmetics isn’t the only way that Jenner makes money: She also promotes various products on her social media account, which earns her a hefty commission, and, of course, continues to appear on Keeping Up with the Kardashians

How does Kylie Jenner spend her money?

With all that money in the bank, many fans wonder just how Jenner spends it. They don’t have to look too hard: Jenner loves showing off her expensive car collection on social media. In addition to her cars, Jenner has a closet dedicated exclusively to her designer handbags, and, of course, a wardrobe that is probably valued in the millions. 

Still, Jenner finds ways to do good with the wealth she has earned. She regularly donates to charitable causes and recently worked with Ellen DeGeneres to gift deserving women around the country with substantial cash gifts. 

Do Kylie Jenner or Kris Jenner carry cash with them?

It was during her visit to Ellen DeGeneres’s talk show that Jenner opened up a little bit about her cash habits. Joining her for the interview was her mother, Kris Jenner, also known as the “momager” of the Kardashian-Jenner crew.

DeGeneres congratulated Kylie Jenner on her billionaire status and asked her how much cash she carries with her every day. Jenner admitted that she rarely carries cash and normally just takes her credit card with her.

Kris Jenner laughingly acknowledged that she used to try to always bring $1,000 in cash with her, but that her kids would take from her stash throughout the day. These days, she normally brings $100 in cash with her, in neat $20 bills. 

One person in their lives who does carry cash is Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott. When pressed by DeGeneres, Jenner stated that Scott “always” has cash with him, although she declined to mention the exact amount that he typically carries. It seems likely that neither Jenner or Scott will ever have a cash shortage problem, especially with the way Jenner’s career is going.
