'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' $100 Million Deal May Not Be Real, After All
Well, I guess the Kardashian family isn't making as much money as we thought. On Thursday, it was reported that Kris Jenner negotiated a $100 million deal and signed a four-year contract with the E! network for she and her family to continue with Keeping Up With The Kardashians and their spin-offs. Now, those reports are being debunked. According to an E! rep who spoke with HuffPost Entertainment, the reported deal and contract with the network is "grossly inaccurate." An E! spokesperson also spoke with TheWrap saying the same thing, in addition to noting that the network will not comment any further.
Per a source who spoke with Us Weekly before the deal was reported false, “This has been in the works for almost a year. Kris is a fierce negotiator. They were not planning on leaving E!, but she was playing major hardball and threatening to leave. E! needs them.”
Even if these reports aren't true, that doesn't mean a deal didn't go down and that Kris didn't play "major hardball." It seems, for now, that the details are just remaining secret. Also, I think it's safe to say that E! probably does need Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall, Scott, and Kris (Bruce Jenner will not be returning after Season 10) — they're the most famous family in America, after all.
Also, you know the Kardashian clan is already rolling in the dough, but I'm pretty sure momager Kris wouldn't let herself or her family not receive the best deal possible, especially when it comes to her favorite, aka Kimmy.
