Kim Kardashian has been having a no good, very bad October. Not only was the social media/reality TV star robbed of nearly $11 million worth of jewelry at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room, but now, it’s been reported that her social media hiatus may be costing her $1 million-a-month.
Since the robbery happened last week, Kim K has not posted on social media at all, which, if you know literally anything about the Kardashians, is frankly unbelievable. Even more extreme than that, however, is her decision to cease filming her Bravo TV series, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” for at least a month.
These are reasonable enough decisions in light of what happened, but also expensive ones. A “celebrity financial advisor” told People that Kardashian’s “overall brand is generating at least $1 million a month through just general posts, not including anything that’s specifically being contracted with companies.” He also estimates she makes $200,000-$300,000 on special event appearances, meaning she is losing out big time by staying private.
Of course, there is a light at the end of this tunnel. The advisor also told People that when Kim K does return to social media, if she does it correctly, she could clean up due to all the sympathy interaction she will receive.
“I think that it might actually end up helping her. Especially if Kim positions [her return to social media] correctly … I think it could be a really big moneymaker for her brand.” [People]
