The numbers were detailed in court docs.

It's public knowledge that the Kardashian-Jenner crew make bank from social media posts, but the exact number of what they receive for peddling products hasn't been confirmed. However, court documents revealed just how much companies are willing to pay to have Kim Kardashian West pose with their items on Instagram.

Kim has sued Missguided USA clothing company for illegally using her image and likeness to sell their products. Back in February, Business Insider reported that Kim filed a complaint against the company, accusing them of "unlawful misappropriation" by stating, "Like other 'fast fashion' companies, Missguided ... has become notorious for 'knocking off' the clothing worn by celebrities like Kardashian."

"But Missguided does not merely replicate the looks of these celebrities as seen on red carpets, in paparazzi photos, and in social media posts," the complaint goes on to say. "Missguided systematically uses the names and images of Kardashian and other celebrities to advertise and spark interest in its website and clothing."

Also in the documents are details regarding how much Kim charges for her social media posts, and it states that the business mogul receives $300K to $500K per Instagram post. Although there are plenty of companies who are willing to write out a check for Kim to help them promote their products, the documents say that Kim regularly turns down offers because she doesn't want to be associated with the brand.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star claims that her personal brand is being damaged by the association so she's suing for $10 million. According to The Fashion Law, as of April 1, Missguided hasn't responded to the lawsuit.
