Kim Kardashian West new member at billionaire club

US reality TV star Kim Kardashian West now a new member of the elite club of the super-rich after attaining billionaire status.

BBC News reports: “Her net worth reached $1bn (£720m) thanks to her cosmetics and clothing interests as well as income from TV, endorsement deals and investments, Forbes business magazine says.”

Kim becomes one of the 2,755 figures on Forbes' World's Billionaires List. Still Amazon founder Jeff Bezos leads the pack with a net worth of $177bn.

Apart from the Kim, other Americans added over the past year include Bumble dating app founder Whitney Wolfe Herd ($1.3bn), filmmaker Tyler Perry ($1bn) and Miriam Adelson ($38.2bn), widow of casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

Kanye West, her husband, is already on the list with $1.8bn.

Kim Kardashian West's half-sister, Kylie Jenner removed from the list last May by Forbes on the ground that the magazine alleged her family had inflated the value of her cosmetics business.
