The model reportedly earned an estimate of $51 million between June 2015-June 2016 before taxes and fees and has about 165.6 million social followers across all her platforms.

Forbes reports that Kim's mobile game makes up about 40% of her earnings and it won't be stopping anytime soon.

Meanwhile, as a digital entrepreneur, Kim makes a whole lot more money from her Instagram endorsements, subscription app and Kimoji than anything else.

Speaking with Forbes back in June, Kim said, “When you get upfront money, that’s great.

“But if you believe in yourself, you should definitely make sure that you get as high a percentage of the revenue as possible.”

Forbes also reports that the Kardashian clan fills up six of seven spots on their all-female, first-ever ranking of America’s Top-Earning Reality Stars, with their cumulative earnings at $131 million.

The Kardashian-Jenners have earned a cumulative $122.5 million combined minus any earnings to Caitlyn Jenner, Rob Kardashian or Blac Chyna who made less that $8.5 million this year.
