Kourtney was reportedly paid $200,000 to pose in a bikini six months after giving birth for the Jan. 14. cover of ‘Us Weekly’ — but the mag is furious they didn’t mention the bigger Kardashian news — that Kim is pregnant!
Us Weekly magazine is reportedly furious that their latest cover, released nationally on Jan. 4, has Kourtney Kardashian‘s amazing weight loss instead of the much more timely news that sister Kim Kardashian is pregnant!
Because of the holiday schedule, all the weekly magazines missed the news on their covers, but Us Weekly is particularly peeved that they had a Kardashian on the cover — just the wrong one.
The Daily News says the issue went to print on Monday, instead of the usual Tuesday, because presses were closed on New Year’s Day. They had to close the issue on Friday, Dec. 28 and missed Kanye’s pregnancy announcement at his Dec. 30 concert!
“Us paid for the Kardashian exclusive; they are livid now. After all the press they’ve given the girls, they’re furious,” an Us insider told Daily News. “Clearly Kris Jenner knew about this. She negotiated Kourtney’s deal with them. They’ve given the family millions over the years for exclusives; they expected at least the first tip.”
Us may be mad at Kris Jenner, but Kris is mad at Kanye! Kris may have estimated a $500,000 paycheck for the announcement (although another insider says it would be more like $100,000), but Kanye announcing Kim was his “baby mama” squashed the surprise.
“Sometimes the baby announcement sells more than the baby pics,” the source added. “Kris runs that family like a machine. She wanted the control over when and where they make their money. The contract states that they have Kourtney exclusively for two weeks, but they’re more interested in Kim.”
Kourtney lost the weight with the help of celeb trainer Tracy Anderson. Kim is now working with Tracy to look great during her pregnancy — do you think she’s preparing to shoot a naked bump magazine cover?
