By herself, Kim has several businesses and and brand endorsements, which brought her to billionaire status in 2021.
Throughout all of her milestones, Kim doesn’t mind treating herself to a luxury piece of clothing or renting out an entire island for her 40th birthday party. However, the reality star’s newest toy proves she can sit at the table with billionaires like Jeff Bezos. Kim purchased a private jet from the same place Jeff bought his $70 million plane. But, the Hulu star dished out more money for her ride than the Amazon CEO.
Take a look at how much the star of The Kardashians shelled out for her plane.
Here’s what we know about Kim Kardashian’s plane cost.
Kim purchased a Gulfstream G65OER in 2021 from the Gulfstream brand Jeff and Elon Musk co-own. Per TheThings, the reality star bought the airplane for $95 million, which was $25 million more than Jeff’s plane.
Once she purchased the jet, Kim reportedly spent additional money customizing it for a year, bringing the overall cost to $150 million. She used her current mansion as inspiration for the plane, as it has the same beige exterior, plates, and placemats as the home she shared with Kanye West. Kim added a beige leather interior to the plane and completely covered it in cashmere.
The mogul also splurged on creating multiple rooms in her plane, including a study room for her law school exams and a place to eat with her family and close friends. The plane can accommodate around 18 guests and has 10 sleepers for those wanting a quick snooze during their trip.
