- Real Estate
Kim paid $9 million for a mansion in Los Angeles’ Bel Air neighborhood in 2013. She and Kanye spent millions of dollars on upgrades and lived in this house while their Hidden Hills property was being built. Kim sold the Bel Air home for $18 million in 2017.
She has lived in a large mansion in a gated community in Hidden Hills, California, since August 2014. Kim and Kanye paid $20 million for the home from a doctor. Lisa Marie Presley sold the house to the doctor for $5 million in 2010.
Kim and Kanye then spent the next two years completely remodeling their home. Unfortunately, Kanye was dissatisfied with the final product in 2016, so they had to start over.
They purchased neighboring properties in two transactions in 2019 to increase their footprint to 7.5 acres. Two swimming pools, two spas, a private vineyard, a full-sized basketball court, and a custom-built mansion are all part of the property.
When a wildfire threatened their property in 2018, they were forced to evacuate. Fortunately, Kim and Kanye had an insurance policy that included coverage from private fire fighters. Not only did the firefighters save their mansion, but the entire neighborhood was spared at Kim and Kanye’s expense.
Kim paid Kanye $23 million in September 2021 to officially transfer the property into her name. Approximately $3 million of that total was spent on the home’s interior furnishings.
- Instagram Earnings
Kim is compensated between $300,000 and $500,000 for each paid Instagram post. She has also made up to $1 million. We know these figures are correct because she filed a lawsuit against Missguided USA in May 2019.
Kim claimed in the lawsuit that Missguided plagiarizes her outfits and misleads customers into believing that Missguided is working on the outfits in collaboration with her.
According to court documents, Kim earns $300-500k per post and has earned up to $1 million on several occasions. Kim declines many offers from brands with which she does not want to be associated and instead selects a small number of partners each month. Kim’s Instagram earnings are likely to exceed $1-2 million per month.
