Kim Kardashian poses with daughter North West amid Kanye West divorce

Kim Kardashian posts adorable photos with North, seven, while both wearing Yeezy shoes amid Kanye divorce… as she continues to celebrate billionaire status

Kim Kardashian and her eldest daughter North West, seven, showed support for Kanye West on Friday in an adorable post that featured them both wearing his Yeezy shoes.

In the cute series of Instagram snaps, doting mother Kim, 40, is seen laughing and joking with North, as they embraced one another for the impromptu backyard photoshoot.

If the Keeping Up with the Kardashian star appears to be in a celebratory mood, it could well be down to the fact that this week she joined members of her family in the billionaire’s club – having had her uber-wealthy status confirmed by Forbes.

However, on Friday, there was even more cause to celebrate, as The New York Times reported that her shapewear brand SKIMS is now valued at $1.6 billion. 

Defying the pandemic – which has seen lots of fashion brands suffer in the stressful economic climate – Kim’s business is said to be thriving. 

The report claims that her company has raised $154million in new funding, lifting its overall evaluation.

News of the bump in Kim’s wealth comes after she arrived at shopping center The Grove in Los Angeles on Wednesday, to attend a pop-up of her shapewear brand, which was only started in September 2019. 

Kim’s presence at the SKIMS pop-up on Wednesday comes just one day after she followed in estranged husband Kanye’s footsteps and made it onto the Forbes Billionaires List for the first time.

Kim ranked at 2674th place with an estimated $1 billion net worth while Kanye was ahead of her at 1750th as he is reportedly worth about $1.8 billion.

She has a $225million stake in Skims and in January last year, sold 20 percent of KKW Beauty to Coty for $200million while retaining 72 percent of the company – a stake worth $500million.

The reality TV star also earns at least $10million a year through her TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians (now in its last season), ad campaigns, social media posts and through her game app, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.

She also holds an impressive stock portfolio that includes shares in Amazon and Disney. Kanye gave her the portfolio as a Christmas gift in 2017. At the time, it was worth $100,000. 

Split: Kim and Kanye’s split was revealed in January before Kim filed for divorce in February, leading to the rapper, 43, reportedly ‘cutting-out’ his estranged wife and insisting they only communicate through security and aides (pictured in 2015)

Before Kim wound up on the list her younger sister Kylie Jenner, her 23-year-old sister, was the first in 2019 when, aged 21, she was named the youngest self-made billionaire in history. 

She earned her fortune through her own make-up empire, Kylie Cosmetics, which she promoted entirely on social media.

However the magazine later published an investigative report into Kylie’s finances and she was not included on the list this year.

The day her billionaire news broke Kim posted an album of celebratory bikini snaps from her beach hideaway which she captioned: ‘Bliss.’ 

Kim is also reportedly planning to expand her business empire, following in the footsteps of Kylie, once again, by launching a skincare line.
