This is way below White’s market value. But that is not surprising. She is still young and has many more achievements to gain in her career. Also, White has the advantage of being a musician and a skateboarder as well. This gives him a rockstar image that, possibly, Kim is yet to garner. But she has time on her side. The way things are going, she will certainly keep climbing greater heights of success.
