Kim Kardashian opened up about her earnings on Netflix show “My Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman.” The 39-year-old reality star revealed that she earns more money from her paid posts on social media accounts than one season of her reality TV show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” (KUWTK).
While appearing on the Netflix talk show’s third season Kim claims that she makes more money from her Instagram account than an entire season of the TV show “KUWTK”. And that’s why the end of the long-running reality TV show will not impact Kim Kardashian’s income. The talk show episode will debut on Wednesday.
“We wouldn’t be who we are today without the TV show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and that’s why we continue to share our lives,” she describes to Letterman on the show. “Even if, we can post something on social media and make more than we made from a whole season.”
How much Kim Kardashian earns from a single Insta post?
According to reports from Us Weekly the reality TV star has not given the exact numbers about her income, but she previously mentioned that she makes anywhere from $300,000 to $500,000 and sometimes upwards of $1 million from a single Instagram post.
In 2017 Variety reported that the Kardashian family signed a “below $100M” deal with the E! network to renew the show through 2020. And TMZ also revealed that the deal with E! series for five seasons is worth $150M which includes Kris Jenner’s 10% cut. Which comes down to roughly $27M per season for the entire Kardashian and Jenner family. Now if we further break the earnings between the 6 Kardashian-Jenner women then it will come to $4.5M for each sister of the Kardashian family.
Who earns more Kim or her husband?
The show host also discussed finances between Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West. When Letterman, 73, asked who earns more between the two, she responded by saying, “him probably.” “We’re exactly even in earnings. We both are really blessed and do extremely well, and I’m really grateful about that.”
KUWTK, the TV show which is set to end within 2021, is only a part of what makes Kim net worth highest among her sisters. She runs numerous companies, also does appearances and, of course, social media deals.
Forbes previously reported that the Kim Kardashian’s fortune comes in at $780M after she sold a 20% stake in her cosmetics company in June. Her youngest sister, Kylie Jenner is a close second with a net worth of $700M as of October 13.
However, the Yeezy designer, tops them all, coming in at $1.3B net worth. The rapper, 43, was 2nd (right behind Kylie) on the list of highest-paid celebrities for 2020.
