In a change of pace, Forbes‘ new cover featuring Kim Kardashian is less about sex appeal and all about business, which Kim herself portrays by trading her bathing suit and lingerie for business-like attire. The reality TV star is seemingly best known for her pretty face and immaculate physique, but Forbes is out to prove that Kim is the new mobile mogul.
Since June of 2014 when her mobile game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood — which allows players to create their own celebrity, befriend Kim and work their way onto the A-list. — launched, Kanye’s better half has pocketed a cool $45 million USD from sales, as the game has been downloaded 45 million times and in turn generated $160 million USD in revenue. This is much of the reason that the Armenian goddess has landed at number 42 on Forbes‘ Celebrity 100 list this year, earning $51 million USD total.
When speaking on getting into the gaming business, Kardashian revealed, “I became really intrigued with the tech world. I started spending a lot of time in San Francisco. I realized this is really going to be the next cycle of my career and this is what I want to focus on.”
Kim isn’t the only one that has crossed over to the gaming world, though. Her husband Kanye also has a game, Only One, in the works.
