Kim Kardashian is officially a billionaire and she’s seemingly celebrating in a tiny skimpy bikini with ocean spray everywhere. The 40-year-old reality star and business mogul, now running her 2019-founded SKIMS line alongside her KKW Beauty brand, was this week confirmed as having joined the billionaire club by Forbes, with the iconic magazine showing the E! star’s net worth to be a healthy $1 billion. Kim, who has been in the news this year for announcing her divorce from husband Kanye West, is now all bikini and smiles. See it below.
Scroll for the photos. They come as the queen bee Kardashian, who last year sold 20% of her 2017-founded KKW Beauty brand to Coty Inc. with the business valued at $ 1billion, is now worth that figure, with the mom of four’s SKIMS line valued “north of $500 million.”
Posting on Tuesday, Kim uploaded two beachy snaps for her Instagram followers. Both showed the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star on her knees and looking ageless, throwing out ocean spray at a luxurious shore, then soaking up the sun.
All OG hourglass curves in a super-tight and plunging tan bikini as she threw out her arms, opened her mouth, and topped up her killer tan, Kim wrote: “Bliss,” with the post clocking over 1.3 million likes in under 40 minutes.
KKW Beauty has been reportedly bringing in about $100 million ever year since its launch. The remaining 72% stake Kim holds in her makeup line, valued at $1 billion, now places her at #billionaire. Keep scrolling for more photos after the beach shots, where you can swipe right for the full gallery.
The Kardashian billionaire club isn’t without its dramas. In 2019, sister Kylie Jenner was unveiled as the youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes, with the magazine last year stripping the 23-year-old of her title as it claimed she’d inflated sales figures from her 2015-founded Kylie Cosmetics brand. Nonetheless, Kylie topped Forbes’ 2020 celebrity earners with her $590 million, coming out way ahead of the next highest earner, Kim’s estranged husband Kanye West and his $170 million.

Kim and her family, last year kissing E! goodbye as their 2007-commenced reality series ends in 2021, are switching over to Hulu for a new show. When announcing that “KWUTK” was ending, Kim admitted she can earn more from a single social media post than entire season of her show.
“We would not be who we are today without Keeping Up With the Kardashians and that’s why we continue to share our lives,” she explained. “Even if, realistically, we can post something on social media and make more than we do a whole season.”
