Kris Jenner is a businesswoman!
No one could ever take that away from her. The famed “momager” has closed some pretty substantial deals throughout her career.
From the jaw-dropping $40 million Keeping Up With the Kardashians contract renewal to the various business ventures she’s spearheaded for her six children, Kris has done it all.
The 58-year-old matriarch will do whatever it takes to secure a potential deal that can further advance her famous family. However, if the most recent rumors are true, she may have taken things a bit too far.
According to New York Daily News, Kris allegedly orchestrated her daughter Khloé Kardashian’s relationship with rapper French Montana.
The rapper reportedly received a substantial payout for dating Khloe. In a nutshell, the highly publicized relationship is reportedly a big publicity stunt.
But that’s not all. The report is also accusing Kris of paying the Excuse My French rapper to appear on the family’s reality show. A source close to the Kardashian clan even shared a few details about the allegedly fake relationship.
The source also gave a detailed breakdown of how payroll is set up for Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“The way that the Kardashians’ (show) is set up is very unusual. It’s the only show that I know of where a producer can say, ‘Here’s the cast and this is what they’re getting paid,'” the source explained. “Usually to add a cast member to a show, you’d have to fire a cast member to keep the budget balanced. But in this case, Kris just offered French Montana a check to be in the show,” the source continued.
The source even revealed the “Don’t Panic” rapper’s alleged “asking price” is a bit far-fetched. “He’s expensive, and some people at E! just don’t think he’s worth the money. I’ve heard execs moaning about it, saying, ‘We’re just paying so much for him!'”
The jaw-dropping rumor has yet to be confirmed or denied. However, French Montana’s questionable comments about his relationship with Khloé may have caused all of the speculation. During a recent interview with Billboard, the “Marble Floors” rapper admitted that he wanted to “capitalize” off of his relationship with Khloé.
Only time will tell whether or not it’s all about the money!
