Think the Kim Kardashian sex tape made this reality star into one of the richest women in Hollywood?
We're hope you're sitting down for the following news, THGers:
Insiders tell TMZ that the talent-free A-Lister is set to bank $85 million off the iPhone video game app that bears her name and likeness.
Yes, $85 million. That's more than all of Kim's other business ventures put together.
The Kim Kardashian video game (“Kim Kardashian: Hollywood”) will gross over $200 million this year. Expenses to create it did not exceed $10 million and Kim receives 45% of net profits.
Hence, the completely insane take home figure of $85 million for - this is important, people - DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
Aside from Tweeting about it and writing about it on Facebook, Kardashian had nothing to do with the game itself.
According to Forbes, Kim made $28 million in all of 2013. So this is quite the cash coup for the cash cow. The only downside?
Kardashian has to fork over some of her video game profits to the government via taxes... and to Kris Humphries via their divorce settlement.
