Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and other celebrities who have been named billionaires


Kim Kardashian – like some members of her glamorous family – was deemed a billionaire by Forbes magazine, placing her among the ranks of a handful of Hollywood celebrities to win the title.

The publication recently bestowed the billionaire title on her ex-husband Kanye West, and before that, her sister Kylie Jenner, although this was revoked after a deeper dive into her assets.

As of October 2020, Kardashian’s net worth was estimated at $ 780 million, but just a few months and several hundred thousand dollars later, she broke a big barrier thanks to her latest business ventures: KKW Beauty and Skims.

Here is a look at other Hollywood stars who have been named billionaires:

West was rated a billionaire by Forbes in April 2020, which estimated he was worth around $ 1.3 billion.

The “Power” rapper, however, disputed the number and told the outlet that it was worth $ 3.3 billion.

Also, his exact net worth is confused by Celebrity Net Worth’s massive estimate of $ 6.6 billion.

Although disputed, at only 23 years old, Jenner is said to be a billionaire.

Forbes initially awarded the title of “youngest self-made billionaire of all time” in March 2019.

A few months later, the outlet retracted the title, claiming that after re-examining the self-inflating numbers given to them, the star was actually worth just under $ 900 million. Jenner has maintained the figures she provided at the point of sale.
