Kim appeared for the first time on Forbes’ annual world’s billionaires list, topped by Jeff Bezos ($177 billion), Elon Musk ($151 billion), Bernard Arnault & family ($150 billion), Bill Gates ($124 billion) and Mark Zuckerberg ($97 billion), on Tuesday.

Forbes estimates that Kardashian West is now worth $1 billion (putting her at No. 2674 on the ranking), up from $780 million in October, thanks to her two lucrative businesses, KKW Beauty and Skims, as well as earnings from reality TV Show ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,’ endorsement deals and a number of smaller investments.

Kardashian West launched KKW Beauty in 2017, selling makeup products such as contour kits, eyeshadows, lipsticks, concealers, and fragrances. Within a year, the business brought in about $100 million in revenue, according to Forbes.

Forbes said she has a majority stake in the private business, which is valued “north of $500 million.” The rest of Kardashian West’s fortune sits in cash, investments and real estate. She has earned at least $10 million pretax every year since 2012 from “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” endorsement deals and other endeavors. While her family’s long-running show is coming to an end, they’ve struck a content pact with Hulu.

Additionally, Kardashian West was gifted a portfolio of blue-chip investments from her soon-to-be ex-husband Kanye West in 2017, including shares of Disney, Amazon, Netflix and Adidas. When she landed the cover of Forbes for the first time in 2016, she mocked those who doubted her, saying, “Not bad for a girl with no talent.”
