We’re not surprised that the Kardashian clan’s net worth continues to skyrocket — but which member of the family rakes in the most dough? Though Kim Kardashian used to claim the top spot, youngest sister Kylie Jenner has officially taken over as the cash queen!
The makeup mogul is worth an estimated $900 million, according to Forbes. Though the 22-year-old earns money from appearing on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, social media endorsements and her clothing line with sister Kendall Jenner, it’s her wildly successful makeup empire that brings in the big bucks.
Originally, the finance publication calculated the Kylie Cosmetics founder’s net worth at a staggering $1 billion in August 2018 — but they recently reevaluated her finances in May 2020. The change came after she sold 51 percent of her self-named beauty empire to Coty “in a deal valued at $1.2 billion in January,” the outlet reported.
Whether or not the makeup mogul owns majority stock in her company anymore, she’s still quite proud of it. “I think, truly, I put a lot of hard work into this,” the reality star said of her makeup line, which currently includes her famous lip kits as well as blushes, eyeshadows, highlighters, and other beauty products. “It’s not like I am doing this to make money. I don’t even think about that part. This is just something authentic to me.”
In the heyday of her brand, the mom of one revealed that she stayed involved by hosting “daily meetings” with her brand’s team — and momager Kris Jenner said that her youngest daughter has no plans to slow down on being a boss.
“I don’t think she sees herself stepping away from this brand for many years,” the 64-year-old explained. “There is so much more to do with the brand. There are so many pieces of the puzzle to put together to create an entire line of cosmetics. The goal in the future is to just build the whole infrastructure, and figure out what a retail model might look like that could take it globally.” It seems that was the thought process behind the Coty deal.
Her sisters aren’t exactly slackers, though. Kim currently boasts a net worth of $350 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. However, there is a pretty big gap between Kylie, Kim and the rest of their siblings. Khloé Kardashian is reportedly worth about $50 million, while Kourtney Kardashian is reportedly worth $45 million. Kendall is also worth a reported $45 million, while brother Rob Kardashian is worth around $10 million. Can we get in on the action?
