Just because Khloé Kardashian has an estimated net worth of $40 million, doesn’t mean she’s not human! “I hate when people say, ‘What do you have to worry about? You have all this money,’ or whatever. So, money means you don’t have problems? And, I don’t care who you are, problems are problems,” the longtime KUWTK star, 35, told Jay Shetty during an October 14 episode of his podcast, “On Purpose.”
“You might walk a day in my shoes and be like, ‘I don’t want those issues,’ or I might walk a day in your shoes and be like, ‘Wow, everything’s beautiful,’ but you might see what I saw as beauty as you’re not happy and satisfied with that and you want more or maybe you want less,” Khloé continued.
“Those are all OK feelings, it’s why we each have our own lives — but to attack somebody else for what is considered their problems, I just find really counterproductive,” the Good American founder expressed. “It’s not motivating yourself. If you want a lot of money … go out there and get it. I believe in you, I’m applauding you.”
“Problems” aside, Koko has been slammed for her wealth in the past, specifically after calling one of her customers “cute” for working extra shifts in order to afford a pair of her company’s jeans. “So, I realized I have to work 20 hours in order to afford @khloekardashian jeans — and I’m in love with them — catch me picking up extra shifts,” the fan tweeted on March 15.
“Awwwwww this is so cute!!!! I’m so happy you enjoy them,” Khloé responded. Unfortunately, a lot of people mistook her enthusiasm for ignorance. “Sick. She doesn’t even realize how tone-deaf this is [because] she’s been rich her whole life lol. ‘Being poor is so cute! Lol,'” one person commented.
“Not to sound like a hater, but this actually upsets me!! Someone had to work a stupid amount of hours to afford ONE pair of jeans. A millionaire thinks it’s ‘cute’ that [people] have to calculate [and] think how many hours they have to work to afford little things,” added another.
Days later, Koko handled the backlash by sending the fan some free clothing. “I am so happy you received your Good American goodies!!!” she gushed at the time. “Keep working hard and being such a positive soul.”
Say what you will about Khloé, but she’s not being insincere when she says she believes in those who believe in her! *Mic drop.*
