Kim Kardashian is a billionaire, says Forbes

Reality television star, influencer and business owner Kim Kardashian West is officially a billionaire, according to an estimate from Forbes, making her debut on the exclusive global list only one year after her younger sister Kylie Jenner fell off of it.

Kardashian West’s money comes from TV income and endorsement deals, according to the magazine, as well as her two lifestyle brands.

The star saw her wealth jump more than USD 200 million just since October, Forbes estimated, from a worth of USD 780 million last fall to USD 1 billion this spring, only five years after the magazine first reported she had made her first USD 51 million.

Though the company - of which Kardashian owns a majority stake - has not disclosed revenue figures, Forbes has estimated its worth at more than USD 500 million.
