Kim Kardashian shades haters with 'Forbes' cover, earned $51 million last year

Kim Kardashian Claps Back At Her Haters In Forbes

Kim Kardashian West has a new answer to those who say she has no talent: Forbes.

The reality star unveiled her cover for the magazine's "New Media Moguls" issue on Monday, referencing her late father, Robert Kardashian, and taking a subtle dig at her haters.

"Such a tremendous honor to be on the cover of @forbes! I never dreamed this would happen and know my Dad would be so proud," the 35-year-old entrepreneur captioned the pic, adding the hashtag, "#NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent."

According to the cover story, Kim's mobile game, Kim Kardashian Hollywood, has netted $160 million since its June 2014 launch, making Kim an insane $45 million over the same period, accounting for 40 percent of her annual revenue. Forbes goes on to estimate that the lifestyle star earned $51 million last year, putting her at No. 42 on the publication's Celebrity 100 list, and the only Kardashian/Jenner to be included. Even Kim's acclaimed rapper/fashion designer husband, Kanye West, did not make this year's cut.

"I became really intrigued with the tech world. I started spending a lot of time in San Francisco," Kim told the publication. "I realized this is really going to be the next cycle of my career and this is what I want to focus on."

Amid the unrest and tragedies last week -- the separate shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by police, to the mass shooting that took the lives of five police officers in Dallas -- Kim penned a blog post about the Black Lives Matter movement, expressing how she does not want her own children to have to grow up in fear.
