Were it not for the seminal (tee-hee, see what we did there?) cinematic masterpiece known as the Kim Kardashian sex tape, there would be no Kardashian media empire to speak of.
Thirteen years after the film's release, however, the infamous Ray J-produced romp has essentially spawned America's most famous family of fame-obsessed egomaniacs.
Yes, proving again that the Kard clan has far more staying power than its harshest critics feared, it's hard to keep up with their wealth.
In addition to the OGs, the younger sisters of Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe are raking in bank, and showing zero signs of slowing down.
And even with Keeping Up With the Kardashians coming to an end this year, the Kard clan empire shows no signs of slowing down.
How much cash are we talking about here?
Here's the net worth for each family member, which may surprise you, at least as far as who's on top of the Kardashian money pile.
But we begin with this underachiever …
1. Rob Kardashian: Estimated Net Worth, $10 Million
Look, don’t get us wrong. Most people on this planet would kill for a net worth of $10,00,000. In this family, though, that’s pretty embarrassing. Aside from that line of socks that Kris made him slap his name on, Rob’s business ventures are non-existent. His short-lived TV return with Blac Chyna flamed out faster than their combustible relationship. That net worth may be on the decline, too, as Chyna takes him for all she can for the next 17 years. Might want to start sending out resumes, Rob!
2. Scott Disick: Estimated Net Worth, $40 Million
The Lord’s bank account may not hold a candle to the mother of his kids and her siblings, but an eight-figure net worth for partying and fornicating your life away? Not bad for a talentless, 37-year-old hanger-on. Well played? Maybe. Anyway, Amelia Hamlin made a smart move in hitching her wagon to this star.
3. Kendall Jenner: Estimated Net Worth, $45 Million (and Rising)
Walking the runway doesn’t pay what it used to, but Kendall has supplemented her income with some very lucrative business partnerships — including a cosmetics collab with her billionaire sister Kylie. A modest $45 million net worth for Kendall might be the beginning of the family’s third billion-dollar net worth. Keep grinding, girl!
4. A Financial Plan of Attack
Yes, even though she’s currently the lowest-earning among her sisters, those who analyze this sort of thing closely say Kendall might be the most financially savvy. How so?
5. Branching Out
The biggest money may be in reality TV and social media influencing, but Kendall is looking at the big picture and refusing to put all her eggs in one basket, focusing on a modeling career that — by and large — depends on her own work, not her family’s endeavors. Will it pay off? Most likely, Whatever happens, she’s not dependent on the E! Network and Instagram for her cash flow, and she also lives more under the radar than most.
6. Kourtney Kardashian: Estimated Net Worth, $50 Million
Yes, the mother of three and former partner of Scott Disick might have taken some flak from Kim for her lack of work ethic, but it seems to us that she’s doing just fine!
