Love them or hate them, you can’t ignore the Kardashian-Jenner clan! They’re absolutely everywhere, TV, the internet, magazine covers, everywhere you look there’s a Kardashian or a Jenner looking absolutely flawless. We’ve all got questions we’d like answered about the Kardashian family (like just how many of them actually are pregnant right now?), and Kris Jenner recently appeared on Ellen to reveal the answer to one of our burning questions.
We all know that the Kardashians are filthy rich, so it’s no surprise that everyone wants to know exactly how filthy rich they are. I mean, when you hear that somebody won the lottery, the first question you want to ask is ‘how much’, right? This is the question that’s been on everybody’s lips since the Kardashians recently signed a huge deal with E! to continue filming their hit TV show and Kris is finally putting our curious minds to rest.
Everyone’s favourite ‘Momager’ Kris has helped to broker a massive $30 million per season deal for the next 5 years of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which will total at $150 million! This is a huge step up from the $100 million they had been promised from their last contract. Just the thought of that much money makes my head spin, but when you’re a Kardashian, you’re no stranger to extravagant wealth.
You’d think that this huge pay out would be paid to each Kardashian individually, but it turns out that the family actually receives the money in one huge lump sum and then has to divide it up themselves. I’d hate to be around for that meeting! Money can be a tricky subject at the best of times, but dividing up millions of dollars between an entire drama-filled family is not a responsibility I would like to take on!
However, when matriarch Kris appeared on Ellen, she revealed that the family made a joint decision about how the income from this new contract would be split. She also revealed that every single member of the family gets paid equally, saying that the equal split is because “we all film a lot and we all work hard, and we’ve created this show and this brand for the last decade… Everybody’s happy.” Well, considering the split means that they’re making $25 million each, I’d be happy too!
Here’s the full clip of Kris Jenner talking to Ellen about the Kardashian’s crazy pay cheques. Honestly, she’s so cool in this clip that part of me wants to beg her to adopt me into her crazy family. Definitely not inspired by how much money I’d make. Not at all.
I think it’s amazing how everything is split equally between the Kardashian family! You’d think that there’d be arguments about who has more screen time and who should be getting what cut of the profits but no, it’s all equal! That’s real family love right there and it enables every single one of the Karsashians live their own lives and follow their own dreams. You go, Kardashians!
