KARDASHIAN matriarch Kris Jenner has said her famous daughters’ charge a six-figure sum for their controversial detox ads on social media.
The momanger, 63, sat down with CBS Sunday Morning to discuss how her brood have made their fortune from product endorsements as well as their beauty and clothing empires.
In the interview for the American show’s Money Issue, Kris says of their “fee”: “My daughters are constantly getting offers to post something for a company, or a brand, on social media.
“So they’re – they have a fee for a post, or a fee for a story, a fee for Facebook, a fee for – you know – they have a fee schedule.”
The Kardashian-Jenner clan have amassed over half a billion followers on Instagram alone and Kim currently holds the title of ‘most followed sibling’ on the platform with her 134million followers, while the youngest member Kylie, who regularly promotes vitamin brand Sugarbear hair, follows closely behind with 131million.
Kris explained that due to their mass appeal on social media and in mainstream media they have a lot of earning power and can charge the fee that they do.
She added: “I mean, it’s definitely six figures,’ Kris revealed, saying that the fees are on a sliding scale depending on the post’s subject, or who, whether it be Kim, Khloe, Kylie, is doing the posting.”
The Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star added that they charge more for “pharmaceutical products or if it’s something that you’re going to drink, or ingest, or put on your body”.
The family have come under fire in recent months for promoting weight loss suppressants, detox teas and meal replacement shakes due to the possible side effects of the non FDA approved products.
In January, Kim was accused of setting a bad example to women after she posted an advert for a weight loss product, Flat Tummy Co.
The paid partnership with the brand caused anger among fans, who accused the 38-year-old of being a poor role model.
The post had racked up two million likes at the time, but people have vented their fury at Kim with many questioning whether she actually uses the products.
But the backlash didn’t put off Kim’s older sister Kourtney, who hours later posted an ad for the same product.
It’s not the first time the reality TV star has come under fire for promoting diet products, after she uploaded another advert for the same company back in May 2018.
This time posing with lollipops from the Flat Tummy Co, fans and even celebrities criticised Kim for advertising the products.
Presenter-turned-actress Jameela Jamil was among stars who lashed out, with the presenter branding Kim “terrible and toxic”.
British star Jameela recently accused the Kardashians of lining their pockets with “blood and diarrhea” after promoting weight-loss products.
The 33-year-old star, who set up the I Weigh movement, also urged them to “check their moral compasses” when it comes to their impressionable fans.
The Good Place star, 33, kicked off after Kim and Khloe dismissed critics in an interview – saying they shouldn’t be slammed for promoting laxative teas and diet aids.
Speaking to the New York Times, Kris said when asked about Jameela’s comments: “I don’t live in that negative energy space. Ninety percent of people will be really excited about the family and the journey and who we are.”
Khloe also responded to Jameela’s accusations that she’s “irresponsible” for not owning up to having a personal trainer, chef and surgeon.
Khloe told the New York Times that she’s never had a chef and often shares her personal training sessions on social media.
She added: “Well, listen, I am showing you what to do, you silly person – 15 repetitions, three times, and here’s the moves…”.
Kim was also unapologetic, saying: “If there is work that is really easy that doesn’t take away from our kids, that’s like a huge priority, if someone was faced with the same job opportunities, I think they would maybe consider.”
