Kim Kardashian

$85 MILLION WINNER

In KK Video Game!

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian Hollywood App
Kim Kardashian
 stands to make around $85 MILLION from the new video game iPhone app that boasts her namesake ... more than she made last year in all of her other ventures combined ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the deal tell TMZ ... Kim's cut is 45% of net profits.  The game -- "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" -- is set to gross a reported $200 million this year alone.

We're told the actual expenses associated with the business are relatively low.  A straight 45% cut of $200 million totals a whopping $90 million.  Industry sources tell TMZ ... expenses would not exceed $10 million.  

So ... we're no mathematicians, but 45% of $190 million is $85.5 MILLION FREAKING DOLLARS.

To put this in context ... according to Forbes, Kim made $28 million last year.

As you know ... the game is all about becoming a virtual celebrity, but it costs real money to buy your way to the top.

Now the bad news for Kim.  We're told she has to pay her agent, Uncle Sam and, of course, Kris.

This article has very little basis.

The $200 million estimate is all based on 1 single analysts prediction in a Bloomberg article.

This is a free-to-play app that isn't even a month old. It's going to fade into obscurity, nobody's gonna pay Kardashian a cent over the app, especially after reading all these bogus "$200 million" articles.

It's in her dream thAt she will make that amount. I just checked the Apple's top 150 paid apps and she is not even listed on the list. She has the #8 free app. No one in their right mind would spend money for it. Unless they are buying it from Google or Windows App Store. I can't believe anyone would purchase it for their video game system.

This is all assumptions .... That's IF people buy ' their way up' in the App .. Which I doubt ... Why does TMZ love boosting the Garbabashians so much ... Lol
