Cha-ching! A new report reveals that Rob Kardashian is making a whopping $2 million for his triumphant return to his family’s reality show, ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’
Rob Kardashian, 29, has reportedly scored a major pay day with his return to Keeping Up With The Kardashians in season twelve. In a new report, sources reveal that his momager, Kris Jenner, 60, negotiated the massive raise for her son thanks to the “renewed” interest in his life.
Well, Blac Chyna sure scored herself a winner! Her fiance, Rob Kardashian, is now reportedly making $2 million for his appearance in the new season of KUWTK. This will be his big return after disappearing from the family show three years prior in 2013.
“Previously, Rob had been paid $500,000 per season to be on the show,” a source told Life & Style magazine’s May 16 issue. However, “recognizing his drastic weight loss and sudden engagement to Blac Chyna would be ratings gold for the E! network,” which is how Kris managed to get him that $2 million check.
But, according to the report, that was just not enough for Rob. Once he realized there was money to be made with the series, he reportedly asked Kris to get his future wife a cut, too.
“Kris played hardball with the network and got Blac a $750,000 check, even though she isn’t her manager,” the source shared. The hard work didn’t go unnoticed, either. “Blac was so thankful for the gesture she gave Kris a ten percent cut of the check.” Wow!
The drama for Rob kicked off early in the season 12 premiere, with him getting into hot water with not one, but two of his sisters. First, Kendall Jenner, 20, totally flipped out on her big brother when she found out he re-gifted an iPad she bought him to Blac Chyna. Ouch.
Then, Khloe Kardashian, 31, revealed to Scott Disick, 32, that she found Rob and Blac hanging out in her house and lost it on them. That led to her kicking Rob out, which led to a family discussion about him buying a house, which, in turn, led to the Kardashian/Jenner sisters ganging up on their mom, Kris, and demanding that she cut him off financially. Well, now he has his own money to spend!
