She’s birthed one of the wealthiest families in the world and is arguably behind each of their successes.
In the latest installment of our Celeb Riches series, we break down how the momager built her massive fortune.
How rich is Kris Jenner?
Kris has her hands in just about everything.
The beloved matriarch turned entrepreneur has a net worth of $190million, according to Forbes.
Although, popular celebrity site, Celebrity Net Worth (CNW) says her fortune is closer to $170million, taking home nearly $40million a year.
Most of her earnings come from partnerships with her children and her hit television shows Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWK) and now Hulu’s The Kardashians.
How does she make her money?
When it comes to making money, nobody does it like Kris.
With an eye for detail and a green thumb, Kris Jenner is who you want on your side.
Kris knew she had a family people wanted to see.
She pitched the reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians to Ryan Seacrest in 2007.
The show instantly became a huge hit and was picked up by E! entertainment where she got producer credit.

As the show’s popularity grew, so did Kris’s paycheck.
It was reported that she was making $5million to $7.5million per season.
The show led to other spin-offs including Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloe and Lamar, and Life of Kylie.
However, after 20 seasons and 15 years, KUWK ended, and Hulu swooped in.

The Kardashians on Hulu gave Kris a nice raise.
According to Style Caster, she is now making anywhere from $8.3million to $12.5million per season.
Managing her children
Kris has managed all of her children, plus some of their boyfriends.
Because of this, she’s behind some of their most successful brands.
Forbes reported that she snags 10% of every dollar her kids make from modeling, licensing deals, and their beauty companies.

Kris co-founded KKW Beauty with her daughter Kim in 2017.
Then, in June 2020, Coty Inc. acquired a 20% stake for $200million, valuing the company at over $1billion.
Kris owned 8% of KKW at the time of the sale making $80million once it sold, according to CNW.
The momager was also a silent partner in Kylie Jenner’s successful company, Kylie Cosmetics owning 10%.

Coty Inc, also paid $600million for a 51% stake in the company back in 2019.
According to filings released by Coty, Kris sold half her stake during the sale, earning her $30million.
Shaking a salad has become synonymous with the Kardashians.
So much so that Kris just became business partners with the salad maker itself, Health Nut restaurant chain.

Kris said in a press release: “Throughout the years, Health Nut’s iconic salads have become a fixture in my home as my family enjoyed countless meals from their Calabasas location.”
How does she spend her money?
In December 2017, Kris paid $9.9million for her six-bedroom mansion in Calabasas which she later sold in an off-market deal.
She also owns a $12million mansion in La Quinta, California near Palm Springs.

The 66-year-old also loves to spoil her grandchildren.
When Kim’s daughter Chicago turned one, she reportedly gifted her with a $3,350 Louis Vuitton music box.
In 2020, it was reported that she was the first person in North America to own the one-of-a-kind Rolls-Royce Ghost.
The luxury car is valued at $332,500.
