As one of the most famous families in the world, the Kardashian-Jenner are a masterclass how to turn fame and scandal into a billion-dollar empire.
There’s no better example that the recent news that Kim Kardashian’s game-changing apparel brand Skims company has been valued at a whopping $4 billion, cementing her status as a billionaire mogul.
The reality star, 42, first launched the shapewear line in 2019, and it has since expanded into one of the most popular clothing companies on the globe.
Thanks to the success of her business venture, the reality star has a personal net worth of $1.7 billion – a far cry from the mere $11 million her net worth was valued at when the family’s reality show premiered in 2007.
Kashing in: The Kardashian-Jenner family have managed to turn fame and scandal into a billion-dollar empire
Watch and learn: The entire Kardashian-Jenner family found fame through the popularity of Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Indeed, since the entire Kardashian-Jenner family found fame through the popularity of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, they have all managed to cause significant growth to their financial health.
While Kris Jenner, 67, is no longer topping the list like she did in 2007 with a net worth estimation of $66 million, the momager extraordinaire is reportedly worth a cool $230 million.
Meanwhile, Kylie Jenner was crowned the world youngest ‘self-made billionaire’ in 2020 – only to have the title quickly snapped back by Forbes over accusations of fudged numbers.
However, the 25-year-old is still laughing all the way to the bank with an estimated $750 million net worth to date.
Even the family’s less impressive earners have seen financial growth that people would dream to have in their own lives.
Reclusive Rob Kardashian may rarely feature on the clan’s reality series or make appearances at their public events, but that hasn’t stopped him making steady money moves behind the scenes.
Thanks to his sock company Arthur George, a clothing line called Halfway Dead, a soda water collaboration and his hot sauce brand, Grandez, the 36-year-old has a net worth of $10 million.
Here, DailyMail.com reveals how reality TV’s most famous family turned interest in their lives to head-line making wealth.
Kim Kardashian, 42: Skims mogul seen her net worth grow from $11 million to $1.7 billion
Money moves: Kim’s launched her Skims shapewear line in 2019 and it has now become the mother-of-four’s biggest revenue generator
Transformation: The reality star had an estimated net worth of $11 million back in 2007
At the start of her career, a lot of Kim’s wealth stemmed from her 14-year stint on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Big business: Alongside her business, Kim also earn up to $1 million for a paid Instagram post
The reality star pulled in a tidy $4.5 million per season as both executive producer and star of hit E! reality show which ran for 20 seasons.
In 2014, she launched mobile game app Kim Kardashian: Hollywood and it made $1.6 million in the first five days after its release. Then 2015 saw the release of her own range of Kimojis.
Another bulk of Kim’s wealth came thanks to her KKW Beauty company.
In 2019, the Product line raked in $100 million and she gained $200 million by selling a 20 percent stake in the company to Coty, the same company that bought her sister Kylie’s brand.
Her Skims shapewear launched in 2019 and has now become the mother-of-four’s biggest revenue generator.
In 2020, it was valued at a ‘conservative $225 million’ and that was the number Forbes used to value Kimat over $1 billion for the first time.
Elsewhere, the aspiring lawyer has started a private equity firm, called SKKY Partners, while she also earn up to $1 million for a paid Instagram post.
Let’s not forget that the Kardashian-Jenner family has gone on to star in ‘The Kardashians’ for Hulu, of which there have been three seasons so far.
Reports suggested the Kardashians are earning ‘nine figures’ from the show, or around $16.6 million each.
Though Kim’s wealth bounces up and down through the year – at one point her net worth reached $1.9billion last year before falling to $1.2billion.
However, her net worth now stands at $1.7 billion, according to Forbes‘ calculations following the latest round of funding for Skims.
Kylie Jenner, 25: Cosmetics brand founder has seen her net worth increase from under a million to $750 million

Blast from the past: Kylie’s net worth was not yet established in 2007 but it would likely have been less than a million
Kylie Jenner has an estimated net worth of $750 million thanks to her family’s television series and her Kylie Cosmetics and skincare empire.
With the help of mother Kris, Kylie Cosmetics was launched in 2014 in partnership with Seed Beauty.
Big brand: By September 2019, Kylie had successfully expanded her brand into skincare and personal fragrances
The then 17-year-old invested $250,000 from her own income into the company and by February 2016 it had generated more than $420 million in revenues.
In July 2018 and at the age of 20, she became the youngest person to be listed in the Forbes list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women with an estimated net worth of nearly $900 million.
By September 2019, Kylie had successfully expanded her brand into skincare and personal fragrances.
In November of that same year, Coty bought out a 51 per cent majority stake in the company in a deal worth about $600 million. This deal put the company at a $1.2 billion valuation and pushed Kylie’s net worth over the billion-dollar mark.
However, in 2020, Forbes reported that the Coty deal also highlighted that Kylie’s business had actually been much less profitable than what she had publicly stated.
The company revised her net worth to $900 million, thus stripping her of the billionaire’s title.
Kylie continued to expand her business empire by launching new product lines like Kylie Swim, a swimwear line, in August 2021, and Kylie Baby, a skincare product line for babies, in September 2021.
She might still not be a millionaire, but thanks to her savvy business decisions, the mother-of two is still one of the richest women in the United States under 30.

In addition to her pay checks from E!, Kris makes a 10% percentage from each of her children’s careers and business ventures as their manager.
However, Kris has benefited monetarily from a number of of her own business ventures as well.
In 2016 she debuted a new jewelry line for DebutNetworks.com called the Kris Jenner Signature Collection. It’s unclear what the line was valued at, however.
