Based on Forbes, Kim Kardashian there is the pasta! Enough to make him richer than superstar athlete LeBron James and many other surprising superstars.
Kim Kardashian is Rich Rich
The Mughal made a Forbes you’re back at #2259 thanks to being a member of the billionaire club. Kardashian has been consistently making a list for several years now. Forbes Kardashian describes him as “turning her reality TV stardom into a ten-figure fortune, the vast majority of which comes from her stake in Skims, her shapewear business.”
Kardashian seems to owe most of her fortune to her shapewear brand. By January 2022, he earned $240 million. The value of the company is now 3.2 billion dollars, which is not hard to believe, because Kardashian is constantly promoting it on social media.
He’s even upped his promotions to include big-name celebrities like SZA and actress Megan Fox, whom he boasts as friends. While Kardashian’s net worth is $1.2 billion, her income has dipped slightly this year. Still, Forbes says she’s paying $23 million to keep the family’s Hidden Hills home, which she shared with ex-husband Kanye West.
Is LeBron James Richer Than Kim Kardashian?
Is this shocking to anyone else? James is the biggest name in basketball and has many endorsements. We’re not saying a $1 billion net worth isn’t awesome. It just seems like LeBron should be more than that.
This is for the professional athlete first year on the list, is ranked 2,540th richest in the world, sharing the spot with many others in the $1 billion category, such as professional golfer Tiger Woods. We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that he’s the first NBA player still in the league to make the list.
Most of his income came from endorsement deals. He earns more than $900 million from endorsements from Walmart, PepsiCo and Nike.
The rest of his moolah comes from being the top player in the league. James earned $431 million playing for the Cavaliers, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers. Not bad for a first timer.
Is Tyler Perry Poorer Than Kim K?
One would assume that after all these movies and awards, Tyler Perry would have surpassed $1.2 billion by now; Unfortunately, he is sitting at one billion dollars, he is on the list for the first time in 2021. She’s tied with Bronny and Tiger, but seeing the athlete’s rise, she could be closer to Kardashian or ahead of her next year.
Perry apparently wiped out the “Madea” franchise, $660 million to be exact, and that was after taxes; Thanks! 100% of his works dating back to the 90s are his, and he even has a studio that opened in 2019 and is constantly expanding.
Perry also produced content for Oprah’s OWN network for about seven years and was paid by various side hustles. Most recently, Perry was rumored to be one of those hoping to buy BET and its properties.
Moguls are coming to replace Kim Kardashian
The mom-of-four, baby advocate, lawyer, fashion designer and muse has earned a coveted spot on the list, and it’s never safe to have brands like Spanx and Sriracha trailing behind her. Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx, is close behind Kardashian at number 2,405. It entered the list in 2020 and has steadily climbed higher.
According to Forbes, unlike the reality TV star, he didn’t dive into sales. Another famous brand that shockingly doesn’t predate Kardashian is the hot sauce brand owned by David Tran and his family. Sriracha is available in many places and the hot sauce has become a catch-all word.
The brand is worth $1 billion and is currently ranked 2540th in the world.
