Let’s talk about the money, honey.
Unless you live under a rock, you know Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint of a reported $5.6 million of jewels (not the initially reported $10 million) in a scary heist that went down in her Paris residence earlier this week.
The entire ordeal has led the reality star to go into hiding (physically and on social media), as people speculate whether or not her tendency to publicly flaunt her wealth made her an “easy target.”
As insurance claims are processed and Kimmy’s presence has dwindled to a bare minimum, celebrity financial adviser Samuel Rad gave People some insight as to how much moola the 35-year-old is losing and gaining as result of this whole fiasco.
Rad explained just how much those infamous selfies are really worth:
“[Kim’s] overall brand is generating at least $1 million a month through just general posts, not including anything that’s specifically being contracted with companies.
Not to mention, any special event appearance where she presumably gets between $200,000 to $300,000 each. Wowza.
Despite KKW’s potential to “lose about $1 million a month” by being recluse, Rad believes there’s a huge opportunity here for Miz Kardashian to make a ton of money off of her return:
“I think what’s going to happen is the first post she’s going to put up after not having posted for [a while], it’s going to get so many more followers and hits. I think that it might actually end up helping her. Especially if Kim positions [her return to social media] correctly ├óΓé¼┬ª I think it could be a really big moneymaker for her brand. People are hoping to hear from her. If Kim positions herself correctly, she can have a real blockbuster media score.”
Now he’s speaking Kris Jenner‘s language!
But social media isn’t the famous family’s only concern.
Now with even more security, the TV personality is reportedly dishing out way more moneyz (roughly 10x) for personal security than she was prior to the intrusion.
Security consultant Joseph M. LaSorsa tells the outlet:
“She’s spending 10 times I would say now versus what she was before, easily. Now she’s going to have full-time residential security and full-time a handful of guys around the clock ├óΓé¼┬ª It’s going to be around the clock, considering this incident occurred at 3 a.m. in the morning, I’m sure the shock of that vulnerability that they exploited in terms of conducting the theft at 3 a.m. in the morning, they’re not going to let any gap exist now.”
Well, at the end of the day, safety is the most important thing (especially with two kiddos) — and we’re sure Kimmy Kakes will figure out how to make the most of this sh*tty situation!
