Whoever thinks life is fair never heard of Kim Kardashian.

We’re not even talking all the free publicity she gets like Yahoo! making her a lead story because — gasp! — she’s been married 73 days, one day more than her last marriage!

We’re talking major booty, as in cash, moolah, pirate treasure.

The fake celebrity/reality TV star is raking it in with a mobile game one reviewer said kills brain cells.

“Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” which pretends to train people in a celebrity lifestyle, is making $700,000 a day, and could haul in $20 million this year, according to CNN.

Kim’s cut could be 45 percent.

The app is free, but apparently suckers, er, players are willing to pay for fancy virtual clothes and shoes with actual dough.

In other “breaking” Kim Kardashian news, she’s apparently mended fences with another faux celebrity, Paris Hilton, and posted a possibly questionable selfie or two on Instagram.
