Kim Kardashian Makes More Money From Social Media Than One Season of 'KUWTK'

As if you needed a reminder, Kim Kardashian is rich AF. We all know that she wouldn’t be where she is without Keeping Up With the Kardashians—and she knows it too. She recently appeared on My Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman to get honest about how much money she will make without the E! reality show (spoiler alert: it’s a lot).

“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 told David Letterman on the show, which will air Oct. 21. “Even if, realistically, we can post something on social media and make more than we do a whole season.”

We don’t know exactly how much Kim makes for each Insta post, but Us Weekly reports that it can be anywhere from $300,000 to $500,000 and sometimes up to $1 million. When it comes to KUWTK, the fam’s contract is worth millions. In 2015, E! agreed to an $80 million deal to keep the show on the air, and then it agreed to another “below $100 million” deal in 2017. That amounts to $180 million total in just four years.

While Kris Jenner claimed that “everybody gets paid pretty much equally,” TMZ reports that Kim is splitting about 50 percent to 60 percent of the family’s current contract with Khloé and Kourtney, while the rest of the family gets what’s left. If that’s true, Kim’s currently getting 20 percent of around $100 million for KUWTK, or $20 million.

It seems like we got into the wrong business.
