Kardashian Family Fortune Revealed + See Who Has The Lion’s Share!!!

With their TV shows, shops, endorsement deals and fashion lines, it’s no secret that the Kardashians are recession proof. But just how much they were worth has not been revealed – until now. A new study has found that the extended Kardashian klan are worth an eye-popping $80m, with Kim alone responsible for generating half the cash.

The reality television personalities earned a reported $20 million to $65 million per annum for a number of years, though it has to be split among the large brood.
And, perhaps unsurprisingly, Kim is the biggest cash cow, having earned around half the family’s wealth, according to the Huffington Post. She has brought in the cash due to six years of reality TV, $25,000-per tweet as a ‘sponsored’ Twitter user and a reported $5m settlement with porn company Vivid over her infamous sex tape with rapper Ray J.
Kim certainly did not look like she had any money worries as she made her way through an airport in Paris covered in designer threads on Sunday.

And no wonder, for she commands upwards of $100,000 per appearance, and sometimes as much as $1 million internationally. But they are certainly not self-made millionaires, as the family is said to have been left a $100m estate in trust by famed entertainment lawyer Robert Kardashian when he died almost a decade ago.
Kris Jenner’s union with Olympic gold medalist Bruce also added a gigantic slice of wealth to the pot as the former decathlete is reportedly worth a further $100 million on his own. 
Their current level of fame and notoriety could also pay off as in 2011 a rep for the family’s lifestyle brands told Women’s Wear Daily, ‘the Kardashians could easily be a billion-dollar business worldwide in the next two years.’
It appears they will be doing well for the foreseeable future at least, as last year they signed a $40m contract extension to make a further three seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Between Khloé and her husband Lamar Odom’s Unbreakable unisex fragrance and Kim’s three scents, they earn another $50 million in the perfume market. In addition the Kardashian Kollection for Sears makes between $200 million and $300 million in sales in 2012, with the stars due a hefty cut of the proceeds.

However there is also a note of caution for the family, as they might be spending even more than the gigantic amounts they’re earning. An example is Kim’s failed 72-day-marriage to basketball journeyman Kris Humphreys, which cost $10 million and attracted close to $18 million in endorsements. Once their divorce is eventually finalized and he gets his share of that money, Kris Jenner claims they will break even on the event. And the Boldface Inc penny stock has performed dismally, despite the fact it is the home of the Khroma Beauty lines by Kourtney, Kim and Khloé.
Kim also took a chunk out of her pocket book by buying Kanye West a $750,000 Lamborghinis for his birthday, even though he is reportedly worth more than her entire family combined. That single romantic gesture could have cost her more than what she earns in a whole season of her reality TV show.
