She helped boost her fame with her long-running reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
But Kim Kardashian revealed in an upcoming episode of David Letterman’s Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction that the series is not her main source of income.
The 39-year-old reality star claimed she can get more out of her paid posts on Instagram than an entire season of the show.
Big earner: Kim Kardashian, 39, told David Letterman, 73, that she makes more money on Instagram than on Keeping Up With The Kardashians in an upcoming episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction
‘We wouldn’t be who we are today without Keeping Up With The Kardashians and that’s why we continue to share our lives,’ Kim told the 73-year-old former late night host.
Even if we can realistically post something on social media and earn more than a whole season.
According to TMZthe Kardashian-Jenner clan renewed their contract for another five seasons in 2017 for $ 150 million.
After deducting Kris Jenner’s 10 percent discount for being her daughters’ manager, that means each family member in the series would make about $ 4.5 million per season.

Payday: TMZ reported that the family has received $ 150 million for the last five seasons of KUWTK, meaning Kim earns about $ 4.5 million after her mother’s discount as a manager; shown in February
Brands and advertisers pay Kim up to $ 500,000 per Instagram post, Us weekly previously reported, so it would only take a handful of posts before she could exceed her KUWTK earnings for a season.
Letterman, whose third season of My Next Guest premieres on Netflix on October 21, also delved into the finances between Kim and husband Kanye West, 43.
When the comedian asked who made more money between the two, she replied, ‘He, probably.
‘We are exactly the same [in earnings]. We are both truly blessed and doing exceptionally well, and I am truly grateful, ”she continued.
Rich Couple: Kim said Kanye probably makes more money than she does, before claiming they were “ exactly right. ” But Forbes says he’s worth $ 1.3 billion, far more than they are; shown in February
Wealthy: Earlier this month, Forbes reported that Kim is now worth $ 780 million, making her the richest member of her family
Earlier this month, Forbes reported that Kim is now worth $ 780 million, making her the richest member of her family.
Kylie Jenner, originally believed to be a billionaire, later dropped her fortune to about $ 900 million.
The publication now estimates she’s worth $ 700 million after sales for Kylie Cosmetics dried up, at least in part as a result of the ongoing pandemic.
Kim’s own KKW Beauty brand also saw weak sales in 2020 as a result of the pandemic, which reduced the cosmetics market and forced stores selling cosmetics to close for part of the year.
Despite claims that both Kim and Kylie were billionaires, Forbes reports that Kanye West is the only person in their job who is actually a billionaire, after calculating his worth at $ 1.3 billion.
The sisters will not count KUWTK in their income for much longer, as the series will end in 2021 with its 20th season.
Moving forward: despite Kylie once being labeled a billionaire, Forbes says Kim is now richer than her sister
