Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20% discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, at nearly $800 million. Jenner owns 100% of it.
Fortnite, the free-to-play game that has captivated gamers and non-gamers alike since it launched in 2017, made a record $318 million in revenue in May, beating out every game on any platform in the history of gaming.
