Kim Kardashian: I Pay a 10 Percent Tithe

Kim Kardashian may have once plunked down $115,000 for a watch, but she doesn’t want you to think she hoards all her riches.

Asked about her income during a sitdown with her sister Kourtney for Thursday’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star and businesswoman wouldn’t divulge the exact amount.

But she told Morgan, “whatever it is, I give 10 percent away to the church.”

Kardashian said besides her church, she’s also a big contributor to The Dream Foundation, which works to assist adults who are battling life-threatening illness.

“So many people ask us to donate money, [but] some things just don't make sense to me and I don't feel connected or passionate to that certain thing,” Kardashian said, according to E! “So when I find something I like, like The Dream Foundation, it makes it just so much more meaningful."

Kourtney Kardashian said she’s not as big a giver to charity -- "I was taught that too, but I forgot" -- and instead is focused on saving for her 13-month old toddler, Mason’s, college education.

After a bit of prodding from Morgan, Kourtney called her sister’s six-figure watch purchase “vulgar.”
