About Kris Jenner
Kris Jenner is a 64-year-old famous businesswoman, born in San Diego, California, into a middle-class family. She is world-renowned for being the “momager” (mom+manager) of Hollywood.
Kris is the mother and manager of her five daughters Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner. She also manages the artistic career of her only son Robert Kardashian, although he develops professionally away from the media exhibition of his sisters.
During her youth she led a normal life away from fame. She was married for 13 years to successful lawyer Robert Kardashian (1944-2003), father to Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Robert Jr. During that time she was dedicated to being a good mother and housewife. They later divorce however she remarried Olympic champion Bruce Jenner, Kendall and Kylie’s father. They are currently divorced as “Bruce” transitioned into “Caitlyn”, Caitlyn Jenner is a transgender woman and also highly successful. During her marriage to Bruce Jenner, Kris remained a good wife and mother to their children Kendall and Kylie as well as the other Kardashian kids. They enjoyed a good standard of living, although fame and huge wealth was yet to come.
The Kardashians are at the center of what I like to call “The Great Celebrity Leverage”. Yet while most in this category like Rihanna who has used her celebrity to found the major brand Fenty, or Gwyneth Paltrow has done with goop, — the Kardashians have done both. They have become “famous for famous’ sake” through sex tapes, scandal and gossip and then leveraged it to create brands like Kim’s KKW Beauty and Kylie’s Kylie Cosmetics. At the back of these great successes, especially Kylie Cosmetics where Kris is suspected to hold a secret ownership stake in the company, Kris Jenner is ever present. Mentoring, tutoring and smoothly guiding her family to success.
As of 2020, we estimate Kris Jenner has a net worth easily in excess of $100 million dollars and with secret shares and stakes possibly as great as $125 million.
How did Kris Jenner get so rich?
Kris Jenner, The Kardashian matriarch, is the manager of the artistic careers of her six children and she charges 10% of what they earn. Her activity consists of getting her children jobs and closing extraordinary contracts that have earned her and her children millions. Kris Jenner’s main source of income is the reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians, which, in turn, gives her access to many other businesses equally or more profitable than the famous TV show itself. It’s estimated that Kris Jenner is earning as much as $40 million dollars annually.
One of the ways they have become so successful is through social media. Kris and each of her children have millions of followers on social networks. Because of this, many brands pay them to promote products. In this way, brands are assured of popularity as the Kardashian-Jenner family reach millions of people. And the bottom line, the followers of this famous family buy everything they sell: cosmetics, clothes, mobile apps, fashion accessories, perfumes, and so on.
This beautiful businesswoman also owns an entertainment company called Jenner Communications, which is dedicated to producing events related to the entertainment industry. In 2013 she had her own talk show, “Kris”, where she interviewed celebrities, including her children of course. The entrepreneur was also encouraged to publish two books: Kris Jenner… and all things Kardashian, which was an autobiography. The second book, In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites, featured the famous family’s favorite recipes… as well as helped her brand as “America’s favorite mom”.
Why is she so famous?
Kris Jenner’s first taste of fame came when her then-husband, lawyer Robert Kardashian, had to defend former sportsman O.J. Simpson, who was accused of murdering his wife Nicole Brown, who was her best friend. She became known as the “wife of successful attorney Robert Kardashian”. Bare in mind of course these were the early days and Robert Kardashian was never worth more than $30 million up to his death in 2003. Kris could never have counted on having a daughter like Kim Kardashian who is the real reason this family shot into fame.
The Kim Kardashian sex tape scandal was massive news and after reaching a $5 million settlement with Vivid Videos, the company legally marketed Kim’s tape. This was massive at the time, making Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian and the whole family very famous. Kris, showing that she is a very smart woman, proposes to the E! Entertainment network to create a reality show, starring her own family, The Kardashians. E! Entertainment accepts the proposal and Keeping up with the Kardashians is born, the most successful reality show of all times. With the fame comes wealth too, not compared to their entrepreneurial pursuits, yet at $900,000 per episode not so bad either.
Thanks to the TV show Kris became world famous together with all her family. Keeping up with the Kardashian continues to air with much success on American and international television. Thanks to the reality show we could know Kris well: a beautiful mature woman, smart, elegant, good mother. Although she is also a skillful businesswoman, cold, calculating, who always achieves what she wants.
Much of her fame is also due to the disclosure of her family problems, as they are one of the most exposed celebrities in the world. The businesswoman also generated a great deal of controversy by being paired with Corey Gamble, a successful businessman 25 years younger than herself. The couple has ignored negative comments about the age difference between them. They have built a stable couple that has been together for several years now.
What makes her so successful?
Kris Jenner is an extraordinarily talented business woman. The reason why she is so successful is because she has been able to take advantage of the individual attraction of each of her children, she has managed to take them to television, achieving world fame. No one knows her children better than she does, which is why she has known how to value them and encourage them to excel in such a competitive industry as entertainment.
Thanks to the good business strategies she has applied to her children, today they are all rich and successful. Three of her daughters stand out notably: Kim Kardashian is probably the most famous woman in the world. Kendall Jenner is the highest paid model on the planet and Kylie Jenner is made headlines when Forbes heralded her as “the youngest billionaire in history” only to retract it some years later, still placing her net worth at about $900 million. Without a doubt, it has all been thanks to the business vision that Kris Jenner has.
We calculate Kris Jenner is worth $100 million dollars in 2020.
Kris Jenner is a very talented entrepreneur who has achieved fame and fortune thanks to her intelligence and good application of strategies, transforming her and her family into important icons in the entertainment industry. The key to her success has been knowing each of her children very well and encouraging them to succeed and excel in everything they do. She is a great entrepreneur, but also a great mother.
