Kim Kardashian could be in danger of losing millions if she takes a permanent absence from social media. The 35-year-old reality star has been keeping a low profile after she was robbed at gunpoint at her luxury apartment in Paris last week. But if Kim continues her social media absence, she could lose even more money, causing her net worth to plunge.
Kim Kardashian has been laying low since her Paris robbery. Unfortunately, this could hurt her financially in the long run, according to a new report via InTouch Weekly. Financial experts have revealed that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star could lose up to $1 million per month if she does not post on any of her social media sites. However, Kardashian’s big return to social media could surprise her with a big paycheck, celebrity financial adviser Samuel Rad told People.
“[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. 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. If Kim positions herself correctly, she can have a real blockbuster media score.”
Kardashian has since reportedly “blamed herself” for the robbery. She’s been surrounded by her family members and loved ones. Production of the latest season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians has been since placed on “indefinite hold,” as Kardashian has vowed to stop flaunting her wealth on social media. Kardashian was left “badly shaken up” after five masked men “tied her up and held her at gunpoint” inside her Paris apartment.
Earlier this year, Forbes placed Kardashian at No. 42 on their Celebrity 100 list. The starlet earns up to $50 million a year and has a total net worth of $150 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Most of Kardashian’s reported revenue has been generated through her mobile game app, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. The game made $71.8 million alone in 2015, reports Forbes.
In addition, Kardashian has her own emoji app, called Kimoji, which costs $1.99. She also has her eponymous app, which she charges $2.99 per month for exclusive content such as photos, live streaming chat sessions, blog posts, and more. Kardashian has released her coffee table book, Selfish, the Kardashian Konfidential book, Kardashian Beauty and Beach Bunny Swimwear, reports International Business Times.
Speaking of the television personality’s popular selfie book, it is being re-released on Tuesday, Oct. 11. According to a new report via Entertainment Tonight, Selfish will feature a new cover along with rare and intimate photos of the starlet and her family. The new edition will include photos of Kardashian posing nude while pregnant, spending time with her two children, North West, 3, and Saint, 10 months, as well as her husband Kanye West.
No one knows about it though because Kardashian is sticking to her social media break. An insider told ET that Kardashian has gained a new perspective on life and social media since the robbery.
“She needs a break from everything,” the source added. “Working and posting anything on social media is the last thing on her mind right now.”
Both Kardashian and her family are planning to change their image in the aftermath of the robbery. Sources said Kardashian will take a break from social media to focus on herself and her work. She will not be flaunting her fine jewelry or luxury fashions anytime soon.
“Material things mean nothing. It’s not all about the money,” Kardashian was allegedly heard saying to her inner circle. “It’s not worth it.”
