Kim Kardashian’s recent photo-spread with Paper Magazine has caused quite the stir ever since the images were unveiled earlier this week. And it has now been alleged that the reality star’s pictures provoked a furious response by her mother and manager, Kris Jenner.
And while Kris Jenner isn’t the least bit concerned about her 33-year-old daughter’s decision to show off her breasts, buttocks, and vagina to the world in her quest to “break the internet,” she is annoyed that Kim Kardashian didn’t get a cent to do it.
That’s right, Kim Kardashian wasn’t paid to pose in the nude for Paper Magazine’s Winter 2014 issue. According to Hollywood Life, an insider has informed the publication that as her manager Kris Jenner can’t believe that Kim made this financial decision without consulting her.
“[Kris] loves the photo shoot. Loves it. She thinks it’s fabulous. The shoot itself is flawless. Her problem is with Kim not making a dime off it. Kim should have been paid, period.”
It’s been reported that Kris didn’t actually know too much of the details regarding the photo shoot before it took place. Instead, she simply trusted that Kim had negotiated a rather impressive deal with the magazine. And when she finally learned that Kim hadn’t actually been paid for her work, she was apoplectic.
The source explained that Kris actually confronted Kim about her refusal to take the money. She reminded her of the long, hard trek that it took to get to the position that they are currently in, and told her to always take the money for any work that they do.
“Do you remember what is was like before all this? When you were in Paris Hilton’s shadow? Or the hard road it took for us to be in this status we’re in? We’ve come a long way – remember that and always get the money.”
Kim Kardashian’s pictures for Paper Magazine have been met with a mixed response. Some have applauded her efforts, while others have been quick to lambast her for showing off so much of her body.
Earlier today, the editor of Paper Magazine confirmed that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s nude images had in fact been tweaked. This only added to the abuse that had been thrown Kim Kardashian’s ways since the pictures were released. But the fact that everyone is talking about them means that, in the end, Kim got exactly what she wanted.
