Kim Kardashian is apparently pursuing a lawsuit against Missguided USA for allegedly copying her outfits, and using her image without permission to promote clothing.
New papers filed in the lawsuit reveal just how much Kim makes per Insta post, and it’s a LOT.
TMZ is reporting that the figure is actually higher than stated, “and it’s likely her legal team will re-file the docs with an adjustment.”
In February 2019, Kim Kardashian brought a lawsuit against Missguided, accusing the clothing company of using her likeness to promote copycat outfits. According to Business Insider, Kardashian’s complaint read, “Missguided systematically uses the names and images of Kardashian and other celebrities to advertise and spark interest in its website and clothing.”
Now, TMZ is reporting that Kardashian has filed papers in the lawsuit which reveal how much she is paid per social media post. She’s suing for $5 million and apparently “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!!!”
“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,” TMZ continues. The seven figure amount tracks as Kim previously revealed that husband Kanye West wrote her a check for $1 million for supporting him by not promoting a rival brand on Instagram.
Momager Kris Jenner recently opened up about how much her famous daughters get paid for each Instagram they post. She told CBS Sunday Morning in April 2019, “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.”
When pushed for a figure of just how much her daughters are making for individual social media posts, Jenner explained, “I mean, it’s definitely six figures.”
