Kim’s net worth is now $ 1 billion after expanding her business empire in recent years with her shapewear line Skims.

She owns a $ 225 million stake in Skims and sold 20 percent of KKW Beauty to Coty last January for $ 200 million.

Kim’s career took off as a socialite and celebrity stylist before she and her family became reality TV stars, thanks in part to a sex tape she made with rapper Ray J.

She and the rest of the family have since taken advantage of the fame of building a colossal brand.

Her business portfolio includes KKW Beauty, KKW Fragrance, Skims, personalized emojis called Kimojis, and a virtual reality game based on her life.

She also makes huge amounts of money through social media recommendations and has benefited from ad campaigns in the past.

Kim launched Skims in 2019 with $ 5 million in funding from VC firm Imaginary Ventures.
