Carrying the title “The New Mobile Moguls”, the coverstory centers about Kim’s ability to parlay her celebrity from a sex tape nearly a decade ago into an empire, which currently produces millions from her mobile endeavors.
There’s the Kimoji app and her Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game, where players create their own celebrity, befriend Kim and work their way onto the A-list.
According to the report, since June 2014, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood has been downloaded 45 million times and generated $160 million in revenue. From that, Forbes estimates that she’s pocketed $45 million for herself.
This year, Kim has earned a staggering $51 million to land at No. 42 on FORBES’ Celebrity 100 list; 40% of her yearly paycheck came from the game.
“I became really intrigued with the tech world,” Kardashian told Forbes. “I started spending a lot of time in San Francisco. I realized this is really going to be the next cycle of my career and this is what I want to focus on.”
