We all knew that Kim Kardashian was making big bank by being an influencer, but certainly not seven figures, which seems to be the truth
(I make 0 naira per Instagram post btw)
Thanks to Missguided, a fashion company who are in Kim’s crosshairs, for allegedly knocking off her look in what she saw as blatant copycat behaviour, we now have an idea of how much the reality star makes per Instagram post.
According to a report on TMZ, Kim Kardashian is suing for $5m with the report explaining her rationale as,”Kim justifies the $5 mil by explaining her capacity to make big money. She says she gets between $300,000 and $500,000 FOR A SINGLE INSTAGRAM POST!!!”
The report continues, “An industry source tells us Kim actually pulls in $1 Million per Instagram post… and it’s likely her legal team will re-file the docs with an adjustment,”
The problem started when Kim posted a picture on her Instagram page which she captioned: “Going through old fitting pics & found this gold look that Kanye made for me for my Miami trip last summer (I went w the neon vibes instead) P.S. fast fashion brands, can you please wait until I wear this in real life before you knock it off? ”
Quick as a flash though, Missguided had posted one of theirs with a model on it.
“The devil works hard but Missguided works harder,” they said in a post.
Missguided and other ‘Fast Fashion’ brands make quick knock offs of clothes worn by celebrities.
Kim isn’t the only one who makes a tonne of money from Instagram, with Kris Jenner, the Kardashian matriarch, explaining in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, “My daughters are constantly getting offers to post something for a company, or a brand, on social media.” She continued, “They have a fee for a post, or a fee for a story, a fee for Facebook… they have a fee schedule.”
Please, anyone know a plug who can make me an Instagram influencer? Help a brother.
