Kourtney Kardashian’s wealth has grown steadily over time. The reason for the almost straight line in the chart below is her low number of income sources. Compared to sister Kim, who runs a large perfume business and lands high dollar endorsement deals, Kourtney is content to stick with TV and more ordinary merchandise income. Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian split the income from the hit show Keeping Up with the Kardashians three ways. In 2012, the show was signed for additional seasons, giving the three sisters a pile of $50 million to split. Overall, it’s estimated that the show has injected $25 million into the Kourtney Kardashian net worth figure since its first episode in 2007. A relatively steady level of fame, low-end endorsement deals and merchandise income has ensured that Kourtney would get rich and stay that way. She doesn’t tend to monetize her fame as aggressively as sisters Kim and Khloe, which is why her net worth hasn’t skyrocketed at quite the pace theirs have.

Kourtney Kardashian Net Worth Sources: TV, TV, TV

Kourtney Kardashian net worth dataThe biggest source of the Kourtney Kardashian net worth sum is by far television. In fact, TV accounts for 67% of all her earnings with $33 million total. Merchandise sales give her another $10 million for 20% of her income. Endorsement deals add 10% or $5 million, while other more minor sources chip in 2% or just less than $1 million.

Kourtney Kardashian was springboarded into fame in 2007, when a sex tape of sister Kim got leaked. Publicity around the tape and the ensuing lawsuit made the family into overnight pop culture icons. The Kardashians quickly cashed in on that popularity, giving many Americans more of what they seemed to crave. Turning that fame into a TV show was a logical next step. Making the shift from fame to sales of merchandise and big money endorsement deals seems to be the key move in the current era. Nobody does that better than the Kardashians.

Kourtney Kardashian Net Worth from Endorsements and Merchandise

Kourtney Kardashian merchandise and net worthKourtney Kardashian isn’t quite the endorsement queen that her sister Kim is. That said, she has earned a respectable $10 million from sales of merchandise and another $5 million from endorsement deals. Deals with Sears, FitTea and PerfectSkin are nice, but they don’t likely pump in millions every year. Estimates place the Kourtney Kardashian net worth addition from endorsements at about $500,000 a year since her star of fame first rose in 2007. As far as merchandise goes, the young celebrity does slightly better, mostly because of deals in concert with her sisters. She gets a cut of the Kardashian clothing line along with Kim and Kourtney, as well as a portion of the K-Dash boutique clothing line and the Kardashian Beauty line. Apart from those and a few other similar ventures, she really hasn’t emulated sister Kim’s multi-million dollar solo perfume line or half sister Kylie Jenner’s signature Kylie-K Lip Kit company. There’s no real hit Kourtney Kardashian product. That doesn’t stop her net worth growing well into the millions, but it doesn’t get her up over the $100 million mark either.
