Kim Kardashian Basically Earns $666 a Minute by Being Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian West's net worth is astounding. As the fifth most-followed person on Instagram in the entire world and belonging to one of the most famous families she’s so famous, in fact, that the media have dubbed the Kardashian-Jenner clan “America’s First Family.” Riccardo Tisci once likened her fame to that of Marilyn Monroe, claiming she was at that time, the most photographed woman on earth.

Kim Kardashian West is undoubtedly one of the most recognisable women across the globe today. And she’s also one of the richest: according to a recent Forbes article KKW is reportedly worth a rather cool $350 million—a whopping increase from the $175 million she was previously estimated at. Last year, she was ranked as number 47 in the Forbes celebrity earnings list—one of only six women that featured in the top 50. (Just so you know, Beyoncé was number 2 and Adele was number 18.) With her multiple streams of income Kim is richer than Taylor Swift, Tom Cruise and Jay-Z. KKW essentially makes $959,000 per day—that's $666 per minute or $11 every second, in case you were wondering. And if your jaw has already dropped, let us tell you about the fact that her younger half-sister Kylie Jenner is worth even worth: Forbes estimate the 21-year-old cosmetics guru to be valued at $900 million.
