Kylie Jenner: We Finally Know How Much Money She Makes From Instagram ... And It's INSANE!

by at .

We probably don't need to tell you that Kylie Jenner is obscenely wealthy.

The 21-year-old has been labeled the world's youngest self-made billionaire, and while the "self-made" part is still up for debate, there's no denying that Kylie is extremely well-off.

And the secret to her success seems to lie in keeping many irons in the fire at all times.

Kylie's revenue streams are myriad and fruitful.

She might be most famous as a reality star, and her cosmetics line might bring in the most bucks, but Kylie leaves no resource untapped with regard to her earnings.

She makes money in dozens of ways that aren't immediately apparent.

For example, like most young people, Kylie posts on social media on a daily basis -- but unlike most, she earns big money by doing so.

In fact, according to a new report from British social media marketing firm Hopper HQ, Kylie is the top-earning celeb on Instagram.

The firm claims that the mother of one pulls in an astonishing $1,266,000 per sponsored post.

That places her well ahead of the competition, including second-place finisher Ariana Grande, who reportedly charges $996,000 per post.

Not too shabby -- but there's something astonishing about clearing that million-per-post milestone.

And we guess it's one more financial championship that Kylie can lay claim to.

The top five is rounded out by Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian, and soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Yes, there are two members of the Kar-Jenner clan in the top five.

It's a proud day for momager Kris Jenner.

Kylie's Instagram earnings are up from last year, when she just barely cleared the million-per-post mark.

Obviously, it's all pretty abstract when you're talking about figures this sky-high, but a $266,000-per-post raise is nothing to scoff at.

Most Americans would be thrilled to earn that much in a year.

Kylie rakes in several times that amount just by posting a selfie.

As for whether or not she's really self-made, Kylie recently told the New York Times that the label technically fits, as none of her wealth is inherited.

But she admits she was born with a leg up on the competition.

“I can’t say I’ve done it by myself,” she told the paper.

“If they’re just talking finances, technically, yes, I don’t have any inherited money. But I have had a lot of help and a huge platform.”

She may have been born with a platform ... but there's no denying the work she's put into her building her brand.
