Sure, the Kardashian-Jenner clan had the kick-start to their money-making empire, thanks to their Robert, Kris, Caitlyn, and…errrr….that infamous sex tape. But they also know how to tap into their entrepreneurial spirit (‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ is now in its 17th season), so that now they’re each in their own right the queens and king of an independent empire (one is even smashed the world record for being the youngest self-made billionaire).
Whether you love them or love to hate them, their wealth and influence are undeniable. But just how rich are they? Here’s how they stack up.
8. Rob Kardashian
Net worth: $10 millionPerhaps the most reclusive of the bunch and the only brother in this group, Rob had a brief rendezvous with fame, before retreating to privacy. While Rob made appearances in ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ he also appeared in his own spinoff Kardashian reality TV show with then-wife now-ex Chyna Blac, in ‘Rob & Chyna’. While that romance prompted questions about whether the whole thing may have been staged, and even though he is no longer making these appearances, his net worth is definitely nothing to shrug at.

7. Kendall Jenner
Net worth: $30 millionAt 23, the second-youngest (and perhaps most unique) sister proves that even when they break out to new markets, this power-house family aims sky-high. Kendall has carved out a name for herself walking the runway, modelling and being a brand spokesperson. To illustrate our point: in 2018, she was the highest-paid model in the world for a second year in a row. Not too shabby. And there are six more Kardashian-Jenners to go.

6. Kourtney Kardashian
Net worth: $35 millionWhile Kourtney’s money primarily comes from ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ the eldest Kardashian sister also benefits from her endorsement deals. Following in her sisters’ footsteps, she too is said to soon launch a beauty line, so take note: Kourtney’s net worth may be about to sky rocket.

5. Khloe Kardashian
Net worth: $40 millionAs media personality, model, socialite, businesswoman and entrepreneur, this apple didn’t fall far from the Kardashian tree. The claim to fame certainly didn’t come without some drama to boot, but Khloe sure knows how to command the camera and her audience, even in the midst of a cheating scandal. Raking in cash from ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ as well as its related spinoffs, including her side-ventures (like the Good American denim line), Khloe also executive produces a true crime series, ‘Twisted Sisters’ (we’ll abstain from drawing unnecessary conclusions). Additionally, endorsements also land in her lap of luxury, as Amazon even sponsored her baby shower when she was pregnant with daughter True.

4. Kris Jenner
Net worth: $60The ‘momager’ and Kardashian matriarch is perhaps the core of this money-making empire. She has successfully not only fuelled the careers of ex, Caitlyn, but also earned her keep as the exec producer of the long-standing reality show centred on what was once billed as ‘the modern-day Brady Bunch.’ Sure, she takes a cut off her kids’ earnings, as any manager would. But as a brand onto herself, she too has endorsement deals, like her recent Fendi campaign with Kim and North (who, sidenote, is now set to lead the way for the next generation of the Kardashians as one of the richest celebrity kids, thanks to her parents).
3. Caitlyn Jenner
Net worth: $100 millionWhile Caitlyn may not have been the one seeking the spotlight on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ (in fact, her divorce from Kris, may be considered one of the nastiest celeb divorces of all time), she’s definitely more than found herself since. The business and endorsement deals tied to her status as an Olympic athlete certainly didn’t hurt the bank account. But Caitlyn’s own ‘I Am Cait’ reality TV show and memoir, ‘The Secrets of My Life,’ not only gave her an individual voice, but also her own money-earning platform. Add the speaking circuit, and endorsement deals with MAC cosmetics, Caitlyn has definitely come into her own since coming out as transgendered.

2. Kim Kardashian West
Net worth: $370 millionPerhaps the most (in)famous of the Kardashian-Jenners, the Queen of Contour is also married to one of the world’s richest rappers. As if that wasn’t enough, this reality TV star royalty ranked 26th in 2019 as one of America’s highest-paid celebs. Part of this is due to her KKW Beauty line (you’re right to spot a trend here).

1. Kylie Jenner
Net worth: $1 billionThe youngest billionaire self-made woman at 21, Kay Kay is the sole owner of her three year old Kylie Cosmetics (even if you aren’t familiar with the gossip-worthy lips, you may have heard of her Instagram-famous lip kits). The cosmetics company made $360 million in sales last year alone (not her net income though). She is the second-highest paid celeb of 2019, behind Taylor Swift, raking in a cool $170 million and appearing on Forbe’s billionaires list for the first time.
In addition to her cosmetics company, she also earns a pretty penny with her TV money and endorsement deals. While there has been some pushback on the idea that she is ‘self-made,’ Kylie shared with ‘Interview Germany’ that, ‘Before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans….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...I am very proud of that.” Not that all that cash kept her from hitting the biggest recent celebrity splits list.
