Perhaps it’s great that Kim Kardashian and her entire family is saying goodbye to KUWTK.

Kim Kardashian makes more money on her social media than in one season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

The 39-year-old revealed to David Letterman on his Netflix show, My Guest Needs No Introduction, about her finances and explained why ending their hit reality show won’t affect her.

Though the KKW Beauty mogul is grateful for the E! show because “we would not be who are today without KUWTK,” she said that posting on social media would earn her more than the entire season.

“If realistically, we can post something on social media and make more than we do a whole season,” she told David on the show, which is set to debut on Oct. 21.

KUWTK vs. Instagram

The mom-of-four didn’t divulge the actual amount of how much she makes in one single Instagram post to David.

But Grazia previously revealed she makes between $300,000 and $500,000 and, sometimes, $1 million for each post.

In 2017, Variety reported that the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan signed a deal that was below $100 million to renew the reality show until 2020.

TMZ also reported that the deal for five seasons was, reportedly, worth $150 million.

However, after deducting Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner’s 10% cut for closing the deal, it became $135 million or just $27 million per season.

According to Stylecaster, each Kar-Jenner member makes about $4.5 million per season.

Who’s richer: Kim or Kanye?

David Letterman asked about their comfortable lifestyle, asking who makes more money between them.

Kim Kardashian answered that probably her husband.

She explained, “We’re exactly even in earnings. We both are really blessed and do extremely well. And I’m grateful.”

Kim Kardashian net worth

Keeping Up With the Kardashians is ending in 2021 after 20 seasons. It was revealed that the reality show contributed little to Kim’s growing net worth.

Even without KUWTK, Kim runs numerous companies such as her KKW Beauty, SKIMS, and also does appearances.

Of course, who could forget about her social media endorsements?

Early this month, Forbes estimated Kim’s fortune to be $780 million after selling 20% of her stake in cosmetics company to Coty in June.

Meanwhile, she’s now the highest-earning Kardashian-Jenner, de-throning her younger sister Kylie Jenner who has a close net worth as her with $700 million as of Oct. 13.

But it’s Kanye West, who tops the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan with a net worth of $1.3 billion.
