Kim Kardashian West No Longer Needs ‘KUWTK’

Kim Kardashian West was certainly raised in a wealthy environment. Her father, Robert Kardashian Sr. was a high-powered attorney who provided a lavish lifestyle for his family. Even when her parents divorced, Kardashian West’s mother, Kris Jenner married Caitlyn Jenner and the family’s wealth only expanded.

From her own admission, Kardashian West used to be obsessed with money and family. When Keeping Up with the Kardashians first debuted, the mother of four and her family eagerly endorsed any and all products on the market. Now, the businesswoman has her own legitimate brands and businesses with Skims, KKW Beauty, and KKW Fragrance.

Now that KUWTK is coming to an end, the aspiring lawyer will have no issue sustaining her lifestyle.

Kim Kardashian West is worth more than Kylie Jenner

Though Kardashian West was arguably the most popular KarJenner for years, her younger sister, came for her spot. For a time, Jenner was known as the youngest “self-made” billionaire. However, in May 2020, Forbes snatched that title from her with their investigative piece titled, “Inside Kylie Jenner’s Web Of Lies — And Why She’s No Longer a Billionaire” 

Now, it appears that the Skims founder is actually worth more than her younger sister. Kardashian West recently increased her net worth from $350 million to $900 million when she signed a deal to sell a 20% stake in KKW Beauty to Coty, a beauty conglomerate that also owns Kylie Cosmetics. 

According to Forbes, Jenner’s net worth is just under $900 million, which is slightly less than her older sister’s.

Kim Kardashian West makes millions on Instagram

With such a massive net worth, it wasn’t a hard financial decision for Kardashian West to let go of KUWTK. In fact, she makes more money on Instagram than she does from the series.

“We would not be who we are today without Keeping Up With the Kardashians and that’s why we continue to share our lives,” she told David Letterman on Netflix’s My Guest Needs No Introduction. “Even if, realistically, we can post something on social media and make more than we do a whole season.”

On average, Kardashian West and her sisters, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian make $4.5 million each per season.

Kim Kardashian West no longer needs ‘KUWTK’

On Sept. 8., Kardashian West announced that KUWTK was coming to an end in 2021. She shared on Instagram,

It is with heavy hearts that we’ve made the difficult decision as a family to say goodbye to Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Our last season will air early next year in 2021. Without Keeping Up with The Kardashians, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I am so incredibly grateful to everyone who has watched and supported me and my family these past 14 incredible years. This show made us who we are and I will be forever in debt to everyone who played a role in shaping our careers and changing our lives forever.

The KarJenners all have different focuses outside of the series, and the show is less relevant now amid social media. Quite frankly, it appears to be taxing on some of the relationships between the sisters.

With more free time, we’re excited to see what Kardashian West does with criminal justice reform.
