OMG Kim Kardashian and her family made $65 million last year
KIM Kardashian and her family made $65 million last year.
The showbiz clan banked the incredible sum from their reality TV shows, which include Keeping Up With the Kardashians, advertising deals and personal appearances, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
But matriarch Kris Jenner isn’t happy with that staggering sum and now wishes she had more children like Kim Kardashian to keep the brand going.
The 55-year-old star – who has six kids, Kourtney, Khloe, Kim, Robert Jr., Kendall and Kylie Jenner, from two marriages, and four stepchildren - told the publication: “My fantasy is to have ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 26’. Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids.”
Some of the fees charged by the family include anything up to $250,000 to have Kim appear at an event, $25,000 each for personal appearances by Khloe and Kourtney, while Kris’ husband, former Olympic champion Bruce Jenner, can charge up to $10,000 for appearances.
It has also been claimed that 30-year-old Kim can receive figures up to $25,000 for mentioning or linking to companies or products on her twitter page – which is followed by 6 million people.
Kris acts as the manager of the entire family and receives 10 per cent of everything they make, and she has revealed their plans to open a shop at The Mirage Resort and Casino in Las Vegas which will sell celebrity-themed products.
She said: “We'll take Kim in a bikini and put her on a beach towel. So you would be laying on a Kardashian at the pool.”
