That said, Rob is still doing considerably better than your average 26-year-old!
In the fourth installment of our special week long feature, OKMagazine.com is breaking down how much each member of the Kardashian family is worth, how they built their fortunes and where the money comes from—and next up is Robert Arthur Kardashian.
Rob was born in Los Angeles on March 17, 1987, the youngest of four siblings.
Rob graduated from the USC Marshall School of Business in 2009—but, unlike his three older sisters he has yet to build his business empire.
However, just like his sisters, Rob is already financially set for life as their father left a whopping $100 million estate in trust for his family when he died from esophageal cancer in 2003.
In October of the same year E! premiered Keeping up With the Kardashians, a reality show following the day-to-day lives of the Kardashian family along with Bruce, Kylie and Kendall.
Not surprisingly, with three older sisters, Rob is often the butt of the jokes on the show—a pretty daunting deal in life when you consider the size of his siblings’ famous derrieres—and he is often heard complaining to his mom, who manages all her children’s careers, that she concentrates more time on his sisters’ lucrative business ventures than on helping build her son’s.
Rob has tried hard to break out on his own and out of his sisters’ shadows, with a couple of high profile gigs under his belt and a recently launched business last year, but as of now he has yet to score the mega-bucks that Kim, Khloe and Kourtney rake in.
Here’s a break down of Rob’s earnings:
The Kardashians signed a $40 million deal with E! last year for three more years worth of their reality fare, which includes spin off shows, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami and Khloe and Lamar.
Though he doesn’t command the dizzying salaries his siblings do, Rob still rakes in a highly respectable $20,000 per episode he films.
He also pulled in a nice chunk of change for his appearance on season 13 of Dancing With the Stars. Out performing all expectations and coming second in the hit competition, Rob earned a total of $150,000 for his hoofing endeavors.
Rob also sat in the judging seat for the Miss USA 2012 pageant, which brought in $25,000—nice work if you can get it!
Following in his sisters’ fashion footsteps, he launched an upscale sock range, Arthur George by Rob Kardashian last year, which sell—for an average of $30 a pair—in Nieman Marcus department stores across the U.S.
He’s also working on a men’s fashion line in cahoots with Kourtney’s baby daddy, Scott Disick, which will come under the Kardashian Kollection umbrella and sell through Sears.
Rob also brings home the bacon from tweeting, where he can earn up to $8,000 per missive to his 4.2 million followers.
Red carpet wise Rob is way below his sisters’ appearance fee demands, but can still earn a very decent payday of up to $20,000 for a mere few hours work.
Then there’s the endorsements:
- Perfect Skin
- Rival Spot
All things considered, Rob Kardashian has a net worth of $3.5 million—not to be sniffed at for a 26-year-old!
