It pays to date a Jenner– Literally! Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, Tyga, is reportedly going to get quite the payday for appearing on episodes of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’– a $500K payday to be exact!
When Keeping Up With The Kardashians returns to E! for another season, audiences can expect to see Kylie Jenner, 18, and her blooming relationship with boyfriend, Tyga, 25. Not only will Tyga make his Kardashian debut, he will be making Kardashian money! However, with the show shelling out so much cash to have the rapper appear, does that mean other cast members had to be cut loose? We’ve got all the deets!
“The family has decided to integrate Tyga into the show because all of them really like him and it looks like he is going to become a part of their family,” a source close to the family told Radar. “Tyga is getting paid per episode right now because they do not know how him and Kylie’s love line will translate in ratings, but everyone thinks it will be gold because the two of them are so great on-camera together,” added the source.
So, let’s talk cash, because there’s a whole lot of it at play here. There has been an allotted $500,000 designated for guest appearances by Tyga and others, including Khloe Kardashian‘s bestie Malika Haqq and Kris Jenner‘s boyfriend, Corey Gamble.
However, that money has to be coming from somewhere– and it is.
“Khloe does not have her man on the show right now, [Caitlyn Jenner] and Rob [Kardashian] are no longer on the show and Scott Disick‘s future looks grim, so there is extra money this season,” the source added of where the funds might be pulled from.
Do you want to see Tyga on KUWTK? Do you think he’s deserving of that hefty paycheck?
