Vertes has simultaneously been successful in her musical endeavors. Her debut single “Wear ‘Em Out” surpassed Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” on the iTunes music video chart on the day of its release. She adores contemporary and jazz dance styles and among the different dance techniques, rise and fall are her favorites.


She also released another song "Where Would I Be Without You", which is inspired by the music of Calvin Harris. She told her fans that her “ultimate music dream” is to work in collaboration with Ariana Grande, her favorite singer.


Vertes may be one of the best-known stars of "Dance Moms", even though she only appeared on the show in Season 2. Vertes had spoken out negatively about her time with Abby Lee, going on to even reveal her experience in a YouTube video explaining that “Abby no longer wanted to work with the girls because they were old and washed up and slugs and fat", but Vertes found success in the media industry, nonetheless.


Vertes currently, other than being very popular on social media, includes in her released music a Christmas album called "K-mas," which appeared in the movies "Rapunzel: A Princess Frozen in Time" and "Anastasia: Once Upon a Time". Vertes has become a brand ambassador for Bang Energy drink.


Vertes’s success has grown exceptionally even after her successful stint with “Dance Moms”. According to TV Over Mind, in 2021, she landed a new show called "The Kendall K and Friends Show". The talk show premiered on CBS in January 2022 and features the "Dance Moms" alumni interviewing celebrities alongside some other dance favorites such as Nia Sioux and Abby Lee Miller.

Vertes is very popular on Instagram, amassing 9.7 million followers, but it doesn’t stop there, she is also popular on TikTok, with over 7.3 million followers, while her popularity has even extended to YouTube and Twitter, where she has 1.2 million subscribers and 526k followers respectively. This ever-growing popularity has helped her collaborate with several brands over the years.


She's promoted everything from Bloom Nutrition to Dunkin'. It seems Vertes is currently concentrating on her social media career as she is fairly active on Instagram and TikTok, where she posts the most, while she isn’t active on YouTube or on Twitter, in spite of having over 1.8 million followers combined on those platforms.


It is clearly difficult to avoid controversy especially when you’re part of a popular TV show like “Dance Moms” and Vertes has had her share of conflicts. Abby had once called Vertes a “hot mess”, and she even wanted to leave the show.


Vertes had a breakdown on the sets of the show when, due to her best friend Maddie's busy schedule, their first duet together was canceled and Abby made JoJo Siwa have a solo performance instead. During the sixth season, Kendall's mother Jill Vertes got into a feud with Ashlee Allen, the mother of newcomer Brynn Rumfallo, when Jill showed her discontent over Brynn's inclusion on the team. Vertes also got involved in the dispute which disappointed many fans.


There were tensions between Kendall and Abby, who also was her music manager, over her song releases. After spending a whole summer on her songs, Kendall had to wait for Abby's approval to release her singles. Vertes disliked the fact that another “Dance Moms” star, Nia Sioux, who is not managed by Abby, released several songs without going through the troubles she faced. When asked about her dance coach Abby's legal troubles regarding bankruptcy fraud, Vertes even called it "karma".


Net Worth

Vertes’s net worth is courted to be an estimated $1.5 million. Most of Vertes’s earnings come from social media presence as a content creator, TV shows, music, dance, brand collaborations, modeling, and merchandise.


Vertes, as mentioned before, is hugely popular for her appearances on the TV show Dance Moms. She is considered to have earned amongst the top ten highest on the show. Some sources have revealed that the top stars of the show, including Vertes, could have earned up to $300k a season, but that, of course, has not been confirmed.


Apart from this, she also has her own TV show on CBS, as mentioned before called “The Kendall K and Friends Show”, which began airing this year. For this too, we cannot confirm how much she could earn. We can safely assume that she could make upwards of the 6-figure mark every season.

Vertes has also been a successful music artist with several of her music videos viewed several million times. She also has her music available on the most recognizable streaming brands, which are Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Spotify. It is currently unknown how much she could earn from record sales as well as stream, as each company follows a different set of metrics to determine how much an artist should be paid in accordance to following, engagement, and overall streams. We can safely assume that Vertes makes upwards of the 5-figure mark each year from her music.


When it comes to dancing, there are several ways Vertes could earn money. One being collaborative performances with other dance stars, and/or professional choreographers, reality TV shows as mentioned earlier, social media content, and live performances. We know that Vertes has participated in the first 3.


We have already discussed how much she could earn on reality TV shows, but the figure of earning may vary presently as several years have passed, hence we currently do not know how much she could earn from these ventures. It is safe to say that since dance is an incredibly important factor in Vertes's career, she could categorically make sure that she would be involved in professional dancing as much as she could, eventually making her a hefty sum each year.

When it comes to brand collaborations, Vertes has associated herself with several top brands over her influencing career. Her ever-growing popularity has helped her monetarily collaborate with these brands over the years. She's promoted everything from Bloom Nutrition to Dunkin' and is the current brand ambassador for Halara. We, unfortunately, do not have the figures to justify how much she could earn from these sponsored collaborations, but we can assume that the figures are of a hefty sum.


As a model, it is unclear how much Vertes could earn from her features in print and online magazines, even though she has been the face of several photo shoots and outlets. She has worked as a model with several other brands as well, but we currently do not know how much she could earn as a model, although we can safely assume that it would be a hefty sum.


Vertes also sells merchandise on her website as well as other third-party websites, like RedBubble, which are catered to her fans. A prominent venture of Vertes’s was called the Kendall Vertes x Velvet Caviar Collection, which was a limited collection that sold out on introduction. We can speculate that Vertes earns towards the 5-figure mark each year in sales. We currently do not know how much she precisely earns as there is no information available regarding that.


Social Media


Vertes’s dominance on social media is very evident with over 7.3 million TikTok followers, while on Instagram she has over 9.7 million followers, on YouTube, she has 1.2 million subscribers, and on Twitter, she has 526k followers.
