Kris Jenner Reportedly Negotiating $300 Million ‘KUWTK’ Contract For Daughters
Kris Jenner just might be Momager of the year. She’s said to be in talks to double her daughters’ salaries on E!’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians. If true, and if the negotiations go through, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian along with Kylie and Kendall Jenner could earn as much as $300 million for their star status on the series.
Kris was already successful in her negotiations when she allegedly green-lighted a $150 million deal back in 2017. But now her daughters reportedly want double.
One insider told Radar Online, that the family brought in the ratings for the season 16 finale that aired earlier this month, so the ball is currently in the network’s court.
“Kris is so stressed out right now, which is why she needed to take a vacation. The finale ratings were everything she was hoping for and more. So now it is all on the network.”
It was the most-watched episode in three years with 2.4 million viewers total. The season as a whole had an average of 1.9 million viewers, and was up five percent for viewers under 50. An average of 1.2 million in that age range tuned in for the season.
Along with more of that drama, fans will of course see other aspects of the family’s life on the show; especially things that have changed since their last deal in 2017.
“Kim is on her way to becoming a lawyer, and Kanye is going to be more involved in the show than ever. Kim thinks that is definitely worth a lot more money because he is bringing so many new viewers in right now. As far as Kendall and Kylie are concerned, Kendall is a world-class supermodel now and Kylie is a billionaire. This was not the case in 2017.”
They added that even the sole brother of the family, Rob Kardashian is a part of the negotiations.
“All of the Kardashian kids are going to be included in the new deal. They all have families now and they didn’t all have kids with the initial deal. Kris and her kids really think that they are giving a fair deal with this. It is up to the network now.”
They signed on to five more seasons in 2017 that will go through 2020. The new season is set to start this fall, and clips of the Kardashian/Woods/Thompson drama have already surfaced.
