Rob Kardashian caught the attention of the world on Wednesday, after going on a social media rant that saw him attack the character of his ex Blac Chyna. Amidst the insults and personal information being spilled (including her personal phone number), Kardashian also posted a series of sexually explicit images of Chyna. His Instagram account was subsequently shut down and Chyna slapped him with a restraining order.
With a court date and a potential lawsuit pending, many are wondering just how much Kardashian has in his bank account. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kardashian has an estimated net worth of $6 million. To learn how he made his fortune and how he likes to spend his money, here are five fast facts you need to know.
1. He Earns An Estimated $120K Per Episode of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’
Like most of his family, Kardashian’s biggest source of income is from the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians (2007-). According to The Inquisitr, he makes an estimated $120K per episode, which translates roughly to $1.56 million per season. A notable storyline involving Kardashian was his relationship with singer Adrienne Bailon, which ended in 2009.
Kardashian’s steady income was compounded in 2016, when he and Blac Chyna starred in the E! spinoff series Rob & Chyna. The brief series followed the couple as they dealt with Kardashian’s weight loss and the birth of their daughter Dream Renée. Radar Online reports that E! paid them a lump sum of $5 million to split between them.
In addition to this reality series, Kardashian has also appeared on the 13th season of Dancing with the Stars, and the 2011 NBA Celebrity Game alongside Justin Beiber, Zachary Levi and Trey Songz.
2. He Launched the Luxury Sock Line ‘Arthur George’ in 2012
Kardashian launched his own luxury clothing line in 2012. Titled Arthur George, the line focused on socks, with design patterns including Camo, Graffiti and Swirls. Each pair cost an estimated $30. According to Radar Online, Neiman Marcus considered dropping Arthur George in 2013 due to increasingly stagnant sales. “Rob’s socks sold around the Christmas holiday,” says an inside source for Neiman Marcus, “But since then no one has been really buying them.
The source adds “We actually had to ship a bunch out to other stores because they weren’t moving at all. To be honest, a lot of customers bought them more as a gag gift. At this point it doesn’t look like we’re going to order anymore.” Despite these negative reports, Arthur George remains an active clothing line today, and a consistent source of income for Kardashian.

In addition to Arthur George, Kardashian has also entered into business ventures with PerfectSkin, Rival Spot, the BG5, and Scott Disick on Robert Scott clothing.
3. He Recently Sold His Calabasas Home for $2.44 Million
Kardashian moved into a Calabasas house in 2016. According to ET Online, his mother Kris Jenner bought it for a whopping $2.285 million.”Rob has been looking at homes on and off for a while,” said an inside source, “The deal closed just last week and he is in the process of moving in. The family is all really excited about his move and him gaining his independence.”
The 4,256 square foot house has two floors, a library, a kitchen, two fireplaces, four bedrooms and five bathrooms. E! Online claims that Blac Chyna “pretty much” lived at the house with Kardashian during this time.
Kardashian put the house up for sale shortly after the birth of their daughter, Dream Renée Kardashian in November 2016, and it finally sold in June for a price of $2.44 million. TMZ reports that Kardashian wound up pocketing little more than $100K on the deal, with the assistance of Compass Real Estate agent Tomer Fridman.
4. He Claims to Have Spent Millions On His Ex-Girlfriend Blac Chyna
Among the personal information that Kardashian doled out during his social media attack on Blac Chyna was the amount of money he’s spent on her over the years. In a series of since-deleted Instagram captions, Kardashian specified exactly how much: “I just bought her $250K if jewelry yesterday. This woman is so disrespectful and I don’t care.”
He added that “I pay lambo. Ferrari. Down payment on the rolls. Down payment on your mom’s car. I pay your mother since u won’t even call your own mother back in months [sic].” In the aftermath of his rant, Kardashian posted a Snapchat video of himself next to Chyna’s aforementioned luxury cars and singing the chorus of the 1961 song “Please Mr. Postman.”
Many believe this is Kardashian implying that he will repossess the cars. Chyna’s Lamborghini cost him a whopping $200K, while the 480 Spider Ferrari, which Chyna received on her 29th birthday, cost over $273K.
The most shocking– and graphic details that Kardashian spilled, however, was when he said that he spent thousands on Chyna’s cosmetic surgeries. “Everyone wonders how Chyna lost all that weight after the baby and she lies to everyone but no I’m such a great Husband that on our anniversary I paid over $100K to do this surgery to get all everything fixed as much as they could.” The caption came with a video of Chyna going into surgery.
5. He Faces a Possible Lawsuit After Posting ‘Revenge Porn’ of Chyna On Social Media
Due to his sexually explicit posts on Instagram, Kardashian is facing a potential lawsuit from Chyna and her attorneys. In an interview with People magazine, attorney Walter Mosley states “I am exploring all legal remedies and protections available to my client at this time in attempts to best advise her on how she may want to proceed.”
Mosley’s associate Lisa Bloom has also released a statement regarding her client’s rights, telling Kardashian to “behave like a grownup towards the mother of his baby.”
Bloom has stated that Kardashian is a classic case of revenge porn: “Mr. Kardashian, you are now on notice: revenge porn is illegal. Cyberbullying your ex is harassment. Chyna ended your relationship months ago and she has the right to live as she chooses, work as she chooses, dress as she chooses, date who she chooses, and be intimate with who she chooses.”
Conversely, TMZ claims that Chyna “liked” the photos that Kardashian posted on Instagram, making it potentially hard to convince a judge that she suffered emotional distress. Chyna and Kardashian’s court date is scheduled for Monday, July 10th.
