Kim Kardashian West is officially a billionaire. First mentioned in Forbes in 2011, she boomed to $51 million due to her mobile game five years later. She has now officially joined the World’s Billionaire list for the first time, with Forbes estimating her worth at $1 billion up from $780 million in October.
It is mainly thanks to her major businesses KKW Beauty and Skims, along with her reality television show and endorsement deals that Kardashian managed to make it to the list. She went on to sell 20% of KKW Beauty for $200 million, placing the value at the $1 billion mark. Responding to criticism, Kardashian West wrote ‘Not bad for a girl with no talent’!
