Robert Kardashian has often been portrayed as the outcast of the Kardashian family. Even though his sisters seem to have great businesses of their own, there is often no news about Rob and his financial success stories. But being a part of the Kardashian clan means he is certainly raking in a lot of moolah, at least from the reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
It’s no secret that all Kardashian members receive royalties from the show. The money comes from not just the airing of the show itself, but the appearance fees, merchandise, and a host of other business ventures. It has been reported that the Kardashian family is worth $300 million, and if Rob gets even a part of this huge fortune, he is all set for life, Starcasm has reported.
The Richest says that in 2012, Rob received $120,000 per episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which adds up to a solid $1.56 million per season. However, since 2012, things have changed a bit. The Kardashians have signed a deal of $100 million with the E! network. However, Rob’s appearance on the show has also slipped. OK! Magazine has gone as far as to say that Rob has been left out of the contract altogether. Could that be true? And if so, is it going to affect his new life with Blac Chyna?
However, there are figures that are inconsistent with each other. The Richest says Rob Kardashian is worth about $2.75 million, however, Celebrity Net Worth says that Rob is worth only $2 million. Which figure could really be trusted? Another OK! report says that Rob may just be worth $3.5 million, given the clothing line Scott Disick and he sell at Sears.
However, it’s not clear how true the news of a rift between the Kardashians and Rob Kardashian is, given that Kris Jenner Bought a $2.3 million home for her son.
“The house is located in Calabasas, California. Rob has been looking at homes on and off for a while. The deal closed just last week and he is in the process of moving in. The family is all really excited about his move and him gaining his independence,” ET Online claimed.
The house is 4,256 square feet and has four bedrooms and five baths. Looks like Rob will truly be living in style now. Do you think Kylie Jenner buying a home for Rob Kardashian means the chemistry between the family and Rob may be changing?
However, there is another side of the story many are unaware of. Rob also has a share in the $100 million fortune his father, Robert Kardashian, left for four children when he died in 2003. The Trust Advisor says that Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Rob would inherit equal shares of the wealth once they turn 35, Starcasm has reported.
What about the business that Rob Kardashian owns? Is that going to make him richer and increase his overall net worth?
His sock business has suffered, and sales have not been strong. He launched the luxury sock line Arthur George in 2012. However, it did not sell, and Neiman Marcus had to drop it.
“Rob’s socks sold around the Christmas holiday, but since then no one has been really buying them,” a source from Neiman Marcus’ Beverly Hills location told Radar Online on April 26, 2013. “We actually had to ship a bunch out to other stores because they weren’t moving at all.”
Do you think Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Rob Kardashian really needs to buckle down if he is to lead a comfortable and independent life with girlfriend Blac Chyna?
