On Tuesday, American businesswoman Kim Kardashian joined the billionaire club for the first time on Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s richest people.
Forbes said that the fortune of the 40-year-old Kardashian is currently estimated “at about one billion dollars, up from 780 million dollars in October, thanks to its lucrative business lines as well as returns from reality TV, promotional deals and a number of fewer investments.”
Forbes estimates that Kardashian has followed her husband, Kanye West, who is about to separate from him, in the billionaire club, where the magazine estimated West’s fortune at about $ 1.8 billion, most of which came from deals with the sale of the “Yeezy” shoe designed by him and a fashion line.
Kardashian filed for divorce from West, 43, in February, citing unresolved differences between them.
Kardashian rose to fame on a reality TV show before she owned beauty and underwear product lines.
