North West vs. Blue Ivy Carter: Which Celebrity Offspring has the Higher Net Worth?

While some celebrities prefer to totally keep their children out of the spotlight, some allow their kids to get a taste of fame once in a while. This is certainly the case with Blue Ivy Carter and North West.

With both young girls being the daughter of massively famous and successful parents, it’s almost impossible for them to escape the public’s prying eyes. We’re not here to talk about Blue Ivy or North’s budding musical talents though.

Instead, we’re going to settle which celebrity kid has the higher net worth thanks to their parents.

The Knowles-Carter Fortune

Let’s begin with the older of the two, Blue Ivy. Born to rapper billionaire Jay-Z and pop superstar Beyoncé in 2012, the eight-year-old girl has led a very comfortable life.

Her father alone owns several businesses under the Roc brand. This roster includes a record label, a clothing brand, and a talent management agency to name a few.

The rapper has also entered the streaming game with the acquisition of Tidal. He is currently worth $1 billion.

Of course, Beyoncé herself is extremely wealthy on her own thanks to her music sales and business savvy moves. With a thriving music career and fashion label under her belt, she’s accumulated a personal fortune worth $400 million.

The Kardashian-West Fortune

Having a similar background to Blue Ivy, seven-year-old North was born to Kanye West, who also happens to be a rapper-turned-billionaire, and reality television royalty Kim Kardashian.

After garnering both critical and commercial success in the music business, West turned his sights on real estate and fashion. His Yeezy clothing and shoe brand has proven to be his biggest money-maker in recent years and is credited for his billionaire status.

Meanwhile, Kardashian has built her own empire with her own cosmetics brand KKW and a shapewear brand, SKIMS. A recent deal with Coty Inc. bumped up her net worth to $900 million.

Clear Winners

One final factor that’ll affect the estimated net worth of each celebrity kid is the number of siblings they have.

Blue Ivy is big sister to her twin siblings, Sir and Rumi. North, on the other hand, is the eldest of four children.

According to GQ, it would appear that Blue and her siblings emerge as winners being worth around $778 million each while North and her siblings are worth $62 million. In the end, though, both girls are extremely lucky to never need to work a day in their life.
