Kim Kardashian joins the billionaire club

The fortune of American entrepreneur and reality TV star Kim Kardashian has risen to more than one billion dollars, according to the American specialized magazine “Forbes”

The magazine reported that the 40-year-old star’s acquisition of the billionaire status is partly due to her companies, “KKW Beauty” for cosmetics and “Skims” for women’s underwear, in addition to her contracts in the field of reality television and with brands dedicating her image to market her.

Kardashian’s fortune was estimated in October 2020 at $ 780 million.

Kim Kardashian’s fame was limited at the launch of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” in October 2007, but she became a global star thanks to this reality TV show on which she built an empire with the help of her mother. The number of her followers on the social network “Instagram” has reached more than 200 million.

In February, the star officially filed for divorce from her husband, rapper and entrepreneur Kanye West, after weeks of speculation about the possibility of their separation.

In 2014, Kanye West established a partnership with “Adidas”, which specializes in manufacturing sports equipment, to develop its “Yeezy” brand, which has achieved widespread success around the world, with annual sales exceeding one billion dollars. He was already Kardashian to the billionaire club, as “Forbes” in April 2020 estimated his fortune at $ 1.3 billion
