Kim Kardashian Named the Richest Reality Star
Move over, Paris Hilton, there’s a new kid on the block! Reality TV superstar Kim Kardashian has claimed the top spot in a reality rich list, released by The Sun earlier this week.
The curvy beauty landed the top spot with a mammoth fortune totaling up-to Dhs200m.
Kim-K first came to the celeb scene only in year 2007 with her family’s show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, however, the queen of fortunes, quite literally, has learned how to rake in big bucks from rather ‘unfortunate situations’. According to the Rich list, the reality star earned a whopping Dhs15m from a lawsuit after a compromising video of her was leaked earlier on in that year. Moreover, the brunette beauty’s 72-day marriage to first husband, basketball player, Kris Humphries back in 2011 netted close to Dhs31m through a number of TV and magazine deals.
Since then the starlet has only been going up the income ladder, now earning up-to Dhs260, 000 per episode of the hit reality series, which is now in its ninth series. And her enviable cash flow doesn’t end there! Now married to rapper Kanye West, Kardashian is said to earn up to Dhs52, 000 for tweeting about products to her 23 million twitter followers.
Things look even greener in the year 2015 for the Mrs. West, who following the success of her mobile app earlier this summer, will allegedly receive double her earnings, cashing in around Dhs258m.
Jealous, are we?
The list released by the British tabloid also included famous names such as Paris Hilton and Levi Roots, who placed second and third respectively.
Well, say what you want about Kim, but she’s definitely been doing something right!
