The Kardashians have been flaunting their wealth for years on their reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but just how rich are they? How did they acquire their wealth? It's not just TV money; the Kardashians have cashed in on everything from a sex tape to a kids clothing line.
Kris Jenner, the mother of the four famous Kardashian siblings, has an estimated net worth of approximately $30 million. She was married to the late Robert Kardashian, one of the defense team for the O.J. Simpson murder trial. She reportedly took no money from the attorney in their divorce so she could quickly marry athlete Bruce Jenner. Not only did she manage Bruce's career as a motivational speaker, the pair even made a tape together. No, not a sex tape; a workout video.
The couple had two girls together, Kendall and Kylie, and Kris pitched the idea of a reality show about her half-dozen kids to Ryan Seacrest. (Bruce had four other children from previous marriages.) That may have been the first time she acted as manager for her offspring, but it certainly wasn't the last. She has handled many of the family's lucrative business and endorsement deals. No wonder she has tried to trademark the word "momager."
Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner
Bruce Jenner, ex-husband to Kris Jenner, is the richest of the extended Kardashian family with a current estimated net worth of $100 million. Bruce rose to fame by winning a gold medal in the Decathlon in the 1976 Olympics. With the ensuing publicity, he earned money from advertising and appeared on many TV shows before Keeping Up with the Kardashians, even competing on Celebrity Challenge of the Sexes 2. Bruce underwent a gender transition in 2015 and is now a woman named Caitlyn with a new TV series, I am Cait, and an enhanced earnings potential.
