How rich is Kylie Jenner compared with Kim Kardashian?

Given the celebrity status of the Kardashian-Jenner family after more than a decade in reality TV programming, one might wonder who's the wealthiest in the family.

Jenner's wealth is currently estimated at $700 million by CelebrityNetWorth.com. The website notes that it didn't believe the Forbes declaration of Jenner as a billionaire after selling her company, and reports that Forbes eventually revealed that Jenner's accountants had falsely inflated the value of her company.

Kim Kardashian, having followed a similar path to wealth as Jenner, has also capitalized on her fame and created a direct-to-consumer cosmetics company, KKW Beauty. Her shapewear line, Skims, is also part of her net worth. Kardashian's net worth is estimated at $1.4 billion. She crossed the billionaire threshold in spring 2021.

She's now expecting their second child. Jenner was in attendance the night of the deadly crowd surge at Scott's Astroworld concert at NRG Park.

Jenner took to Instagram following the concert to share the couple's condolences, saying they were both "broken and devasted" about the loss of life that night. She also claimed that neither she nor Scott was aware of any fatalities until the performance had ended.
