"Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" is currently one of the hottest mobile games for iOS and Android, boasting a 5-star user rating and reportedly projected to make $200 million this year according to analysts.  Sources told TMZ that Kim receives 45% of the profits, so she'd wind up earning around $85 million.
