Read more below about how much the Kardashian’s are worth and soon-to-be billionaire Kylie Jenner.
How Much Each Kardashian Is Worth
As of 2020 and recorded by Forbes, the richest of the Kardashian family is Kylie Jenner who has a net worth of $900 million. The celebrity also falls at number one of Forbes’ 2020 World’s Highest Paid Celebrities list.
In second place on the list of the richest in the Kardashian family, is Kylie’s older sister, Kim Kardashian, said to have a net worth of $350 million. However, add Kanye West to this and the pair have a combined net worth of a whopping $1.65 billion. Next of the richest Kardashians is Caitlyn Jenner who is said to be worth $100 million, then Kris Jenner, reportedly worth $90 million.
After this is Khloé Kardashian whose wealth is estimated at $50 million, then Kendell Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian, each worth $45 million, Scott Disick worth $40 million and finally Rob Kardashian, who is still worth just over $10 million.
Controversy Surrounding Kylie Jenner’s Billionaire Status
Kylie Jenner is said have built her $900 million dollar fortune in less than 3 years. This easily places her at the number one spot as the richest in the Kardashian-Jenner family.
The majority of Kylie’s money comes from her beauty line Kylie Cosmetics. Kylie’s beauty empire was initially valued at $1.2 billion in 2019, giving her a spot on Forbes’ Billionaires List, and making her the youngest self-made billionaire.
However, it was not long before her place on Forbes was retracted when Forbes admitted that the profits of her business had been largely over-estimated. Many people also criticized Kylie being dubbed as ‘self-made’, arguing that the millionaire was born into wealth and privilege.
Kylie has defended her status, telling People magazine, “I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited … and I am very proud of that.” Despite her claims, Kylie was born into a family already worth millions and to a mother who had already networked half of Hollywood.
A picture of Kylie was posted on Forbes Instagram in 2018 remarked that, “Kylie Jenner is on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever, ahead of even Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23.”
The Future of the Kardashian Fortune
Another member of the Kardashian family with a successful beauty line is Kim Kardashian with KKW beauty. Considering the successes of the family thus far, and the growth of their businesses, it seems highly likely that the fortune will eventually be passed down to the next generation. North West is Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s first child and was born in 2013.
Despite disrupting Kim’s own make-up tutorial during the quarantine of 2020, North West was previously filmed on Kim’s Instagram story doing Kim’s make-up herself. After putting almost a whole bottle of foundation on Kim’s face, North continues to use eye liner to draw black marks on her mom’s cheeks and eyelids.
Afterwards, Kim faces the camera to show off her new look. “Okay guys so this is the final look by North West using the Glam Bible Smokey Volume I, available now on KKWBeauty.com,” she jokes. Kim Kardashian has also told Entertainment Tonight that her daughter’s favourite activity to do in her room is makeovers. When asked if North might one day take over her mom’s beauty empire Kim replied, “she definitely loves make-up. If she loves it enough she can definitely take it over, whatever she wants to do when she is old enough she can do.”
