20 Celebrities Who’ve Made Millions of Dollars Outside of Hollywood
Kim Kardashian West has built several companies based on her brand.
Kardashian West is often mocked as being a talentless hack, but she has a knack for turning her image into a cash machine.
The aspiring lawyer’s mobile app game “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” has made more than $160 million between 2014 and 2016, and her Kimoji app also topped Apple’s app charts and made plenty of money.
Products from her lucrative cosmetics company, KKW Beauty, sell out within hours of release. In addition, her 2015 coffee-table book of selfies, “Selfish,” sold more than 125,000 copies with a retail price of $20.
Other members of the Kardashian-Jenner families have followed her example. Kylie Jenner, for example, has a highly successful makeup company.
