Outside the group, Jennie Kim is also a solo artist with a successful career. She released her debut studio album Solo in 2018 and it reached #2 in Korea. Her single “Solo” reached #1 in Korea and on the US World chart.

So, how rich is Jennie Ruby Jane? According to Celebrity Net Worth, Jennie’s net worth is estimated to be around $20 million. She is from a wealthy family. Although not much is known of her father, Her mother is said to be a major stakeholder in CJ E&M, one of South Korea’s largest entertainment companies, which owns Mnet and TVN, but she started working as a teenager, eventually earning her own fortune as a result.

When she was 14, Jennie’s parents wanted to transfer her to a school in Florida the United States to become a lawyer, but Jennie, who had dreams of becoming a ballet dancer when she was young, convinced her parents to allow her to return to Seoul, so she could pursue a music career.

Along with BLACKPINK’s music and performances, Jennie has also been a brand ambassador for the beauty brand, Hera, and collaborated with sunglasses brand Gentle Monster. She’s been a long-time muse of Chanel (earning her the nickname “Human Chanel”), is part of Calvin Klein’s star-studded set of global ambassadors, and represents Korean luxury eyewear brand Gentle Monster, to name a few. The 27-year-old is a fashion favorite of brands from all over the world.

How much is BLACKPINK worth? Several sources say that BLACKPINK’s members are paid the same for the music they release and the performances they do as a band. However, the members’ net worths do differ a little based on their different brand deals.

According to, BLACKPINK’s net worth as a whole is around $24 million a year, which would mean each of the members would take home $6 million. Other sources also suggest Blackpink’s members have a combined net worth of approximately $62 million, adding that the members are paid $8 million (Dhs29 million) per year, with each member receiving $32 million (Dhs117 million) per year.
