She succeeded: after she was wrongly declared a billionaire last year, Kim Kardashian (40) is now allowed to join the club. The reality star has been awarded a spot in the Forbes’ World’s Billionaires List. That reports the American business magazine.
Kardashian has built up its one billion dollar (845 million euro) fortune through its two companies: makeup line KKW Beauty and clothing brand SKIMS. Her reality series ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’, her own app and a sticker collection also provided the socialite’s considerable assets.
In July last year, Kim was already named a billionaire by her now ex-husband Kanye West (43). “I am so proud of my beautiful wife, because she officially has a fortune of one billion euros. You have weathered the craziest storms and now the light of God is shining on you and our family, ”he wrote at the time. However, that news was then quickly denied by Forbes.
Kim is not the first Kardashian scion to be on the list of billionaires. Half sister Kylie Jenner (23) preceded her before. She also has her own make-up line: Kylie Cosmetics.
