The Amount Kim Kardashian Was Paid For A Selfie Is Insane

She’s already released an entire book of selfies, so it should come as no surprise that she gets paid to pose at parties.

But it’s the amount she gets paid which is particularly ridiculous.

Kimmy K reportedly pocketed a staggering $700,000 (£531,390) to pose alongside social media stars for photographs while at a house party in the Hamptons, New York this weekend for fashion brand Revolve.

According to the New York Post, Kim received the money to pose for selfies with ‘influencers’ at the exclusive bash for just over an hour, after being flown in from Los Angeles by private jet.

Let’s go through that again – Kim Kardashian got paid nearly $1 million (£760,890) for an hour of posing for photos.

In the interest of pay equality, the average hourly rate in the UK is £13, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Apparently, Kim K enlisted the service of a ‘small police force’ for the event, with three armed guards surrounding her while others crowded around.

A source told the Mirror: “Twenty-five bodyguards were hired from her side. They’re off-duty cops. It’s like a small police force.” One was even carrying a gun.

How utterly ridiculous. Can’t say I’m not jealous though – I’d love to be paid hundreds of thousands of pounds for showing up to a party and taking selfies.
