Kris Jenner should be a familiar face to a lot of people out there. After all, whether people love or hate the Kardashians, there can be no doubt about the fact that they are very, very well-known because of the entertainment industries. Due to this, it is perhaps unsurprising to learn that some sources believe that Jenner has a current net worth of $90 million, which is a considerable sum to say the least.
In short, Jenner was born in San Diego. When she was still a child, her parents divorced, with the result that she and her sister were raised by just her mother until she went on to get married to a businessman. For a time, the family moved out to Oxnard in the same state. However, that fell through when the businessman’s business partner ran out with their capital, which is why the family eventually moved back to San Diego.
How Did Kris Jenner Reach Her Current Net Worth?
For the most part, Jenner’s earlier life wasn’t particularly remarkable. She graduated from a San Diego high school. After which, she spent a short time working as a flight attendant. Eventually, Jenner winded up get married to a lawyer named Robert Kardashian, with whom she had four children named Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob. The two would divorce, but they managed to remain pretty good friends in spite of that fact. Not too long afterwards, Jenner got married to Bruce Jenner, who is now known as Caitlyn Jenner because she came out as a transgender woman in 2015. As a result, the two have divorced, though Jenner has held onto the name.
Regardless, the Kardashians became famous because Jenner pitched the idea of a family-focused reality TV show to Ryan Seacrest, who had something like the then-popular The Osbournes in mind. From the start, Jenner understood that what reality TV viewers wanted was drama, which wasn’t a problem because her family was packed full of drama as a natural consequence of them being themselves. Eventually, the process resulted in Keeping Up with the Kardashians being picked up by E!, where it soon managed to find a very sizable audience. To get an idea of the show’s success, suffice to say that it is not just one of the longest-running reality TV shows ever created but also one that has inspired a total of five spin-offs so far. Granted, successful reality TV shows getting spin-offs is nothing new, but the sheer number is nonetheless very impressive.
With that said, what is even more impressive is that Keeping Up with the Kardashians has enabled multiple members of the Kardashian-Jenner family to start up their own business empires. However, it seems safe to say that at least some of their success can be credited to Jenner, who has played a very important managerial role for them. Besides this, Jenner is also involved in various projects of her own. For example, she has her own production company that is based out of Los Angeles. Furthermore, she has written multiple books, including one that was a cookbook of all things. Besides this, Jenner also does everything from hosting her own talk show to starting up even more businesses, which should make it very clear that she is very active in the money-making side of things.
Summed up, how Jenner has managed to make her net worth isn’t particularly mysterious. She was the one who pushed for Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which provided the family with the widespread recognition that has enabled them to find much of their success. Naturally, Jenner has benefited from their collective surge to fame, perhaps not to the same extent as more than one of her daughters but to a considerable extent nonetheless.
Currently, the Kardashians show no signs of stopping anytime soon. If anything, it seems as though they becoming more and more established as a part of American pop culture over time. As a result, it seems safe to say that while Jenner’s current net worth is estimated to be $90 million, that could very well end up becoming much higher in time as she continues to remain involved in the wide range of money-making activities that she is engaged in.
