Since the Kardashians and Jenners first appeared on screens in 2007, they’ve earned enough to make their KUWTK wages seem like a Saturday job in Greggs.

But who’s the richest?

Before becoming a reality TV queen, Kim was Brandy and Paris Hilton’s stylist, and made fleeting appearances on The Simple Life while flogging her Manolos on eBay.

After her sex tape with Ray J leaked, she was rumoured to have settled for a cool $5 million.

Kanye West congratulated his wife on becoming a billionaire when she sold a stake in KKW Beauty to Coty for $200 million earlier this year, but it emerged she was only worth $900 million.

Kimojis and her app Kim Kardashian: Hollywood are big earners for Kim and she netted $2 million within hours of launching her shapewear, Skims.

Now she and Kanye live in a $60 million mansion and also have a ranch worth $14 million.

Oh, and if you want her to post on Instagram it’ll cost you $1 million.

Koko’s worked hard for the money after starring in spin-off shows Khloe and Lamar and Revenge Body.

In 2016 she launched her successful fashion line, Good American, with an annual turnover of $3.6 million.

Khloe can pick up a $250K for an Instagram post and teamed up with True (whose baby shower was sponsored by Amazon) to promote Pampers pull-ups.

And she even managed to make Febreze look glamorous in a recent endorsement, which all helped to boost her worth to $40 million.

In pre-KUWTK times, Kourtney dabbled in reality TV on The Simple Life and Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, but also went to university.

As the show took off she co-starred in Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami and Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

She had a fashion collaboration with Pretty Little Thing and has endorsed big brands such as Calvin Klein.

Along with Khloe and Kim, Kourt was executive producer on Keeping Up With The Kardashians between 2015 and 2016 and last year she launched her Goop-esque lifestyle website, Poosh, which she promotes with Insta posts.

So now she’s worth around $35 million.

The queen of momagers was rumoured to be negotiating a $300 million deal for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but TMZ reported the family were getting half that – and they have to share it.

Still, her worth is estimated at $60 million as she takes a 10% cut from her daughters’ earnings and she picked up a hefty pay cheque as executive producer of KUWTK until 2016.

Little Kendall was 11 when the show started, but by the time she was 14 she was modelling.

Five years later, she was the face of Estee Lauder and walking for Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Givenchy and today she’s worth around $45 million after being named the world’s highest-paid model at $22.5 million in 2018.

Although she posted about the ill-fated Fyre Festival on Instagram, Kendall has made more savvy decisions when it comes to property – she bought Charlie Sheen’s old house for $8.5 million and gave it a cool makeover.

The smoothest operator of them all was just ten when Keeping Up With The Kardashians started.

Forbes named Kylie the youngest self-made billionaire at 21 after she sold 51% of Kylie Cosmetics to Coty, but it turned out her wealth had been exaggerated.

But she’s not exactly poor: Kylie invested a quarter of a million dollars she’d earned from modelling, endorsement deals and KUWTK to launch her famous lip kits.

Instagram is her shop window, with followers snapping up her make-up and skincare range as well as brands she endorses such as Sugar Bear Hair.

So it’s no surprise she’s one of the richest in the family, pushing $900,000.
