Forbes cites Kardashian West’s two businesses, shapewear company Skims and makeup line KKW Beauty, in addition to “reality television and endorsement deals and a number of smaller investments” as the reason for the valuation.
In June of 2020, Kardashian West sold a 20% stake in her cosmetics company KKW Beauty to makeup giant Coty, in a deal that ultimately placed the value of the brand at $1 billion overall, according to Reuters.
Kardashian West also earned money from her family’s E! network reality show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” as well as real estate.
Forbes estimated Kardashian West’s net worth from October of last year at $780 million. Kardashian West’s soon-to-be-ex husband Kanye West also appeared on the Forbes list for the first time this year,
