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.

You all are just giving these people money, and they don't even give the courtesy of being polite in public. You're stupid if you buy this game.

Why are people playing this app? You do realize you are basically paying a s*ut who f'd her way to the top. In what universe is it okay to have sex with a celebrity and then become famous for it and make a reality series out of it and marry a black man and all of a sudden forget what she did to get up there. C'mon open your eyes!

I have never met one single person who can stand these people let alone like them, yet there have to be millions of people who worship them and are making them wealthy. Who are those people?

Well Well…. I guess Kanye is pissed that now this will make her net worth will be more than his. Something else for him to rant about. He'll treat her like crap because he'll be embarrassed. His last album was a bust & he's been boo'd lately during is boring concert rants after being 2nd choice after Drake was a no show. LOL
Who are the fools buying this sh!t?

I love how Kanye is burning all his bridges by trashing everyone he has ever come in contact with including those who help build his career. (what's left of it). He has no friends, what few there might be are no bodies and he will never be a REAL designer. He's all talk. ALL TALK! I love it when people call him out during interviews and he panics & doesn't know how to handle himself. LMAO.

Reality Check    

Your "sources" are WRONG. Learn to do a little more actual reporting. The majority of any of that revenue would come from Apple's "AppStore" where the game is being downloaded and any "in-app purchases" (where ALL of the revenue is generated) has to GIVE APPLE THEIR 30% CUT OF REVENUES. All publishers give Apple 30% of any revenue that's generated inside the game distributed via their AppStore. Even if that $200 million figure were accurate, that's transaction costs along of $60... million, leaving $140 million. But that game has other costs as well such as thousands in server costs and other development costs.

But that doesn't matter, I can guarantee you this game will not generate $200 Million in revenue. Maybe more like $20 million in revenue if they're lucky. This game is not even the #1 free game in the App Store. It's also #5 top grossing which equates to about $10K/day in revenue, but it will surely drop like a rock in the charts (and not make nearly that much) once the initial download burst wears off.

She's not going to sniff anywhere near the type of money this post is claiming.
