Kim Kardashian is officially a billionaire, according to Forbes' most recent calculations.

The outlet estimated that the reality TV queen turned social media mogul turned businesswoman is now worth $1 billion, up from her former net worth estimate of $780 million in October.

The 40-year-old made the jump to the coveted list because of two of her last business ventures: KKW Beauty and Skims.

Kardashian founded KKW Beauty in 2017 and in 2020 sold 20% of her cosmetics company to Coty for $200 million, which valued the company at $1 billion.
