Momager and reality television matriarch Kris Jenner has a problem, and it’s driving her nuts. Despite all her work on behalf of her family, there’s one prize that continues to elude Kris Jenner: fans.
Radar Online reports that Kris Jenner is poised for a meltdown. Kris Jenner negotiated a multi-million dollar contract to keep the family flagship reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, on the air. But her daughter’s white-hot careers haven’t trickled down to Kris Jenner. Nor has the adoration of millions of fans. While she’s happy for her children, the lack of love stings Kris Jenner. And sources told Radar Online that she’s coping in all the wrong ways.
“Kris is her own worst enemy, she’s constantly on this quest to push herself to the next level and make more money while controlling everyone around her.”
How bad is Kris Jenner’s stock with fans? Bad enough that the 60-year-old momager received a chorus of boos in late February. According to TMZ, Jenner took the stage at the iHeart Radio 80s concert to introduce Culture Club. While there were scattered cheers, most of the audience booed Kris Jenner until the moment she left the stage. Jenner, clearly shaken by the reception, rushed through reading the introduction.
To make matters worse, Kris Jenner is fast losing influence in the one sphere that matters most to her, the lives of her children. Kris Jenner and her daughters voiced both private and public disapproval of Rob Kardashian’s girlfriend, Blac Chyna.
Fans of Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s relationship were left scratching their heads after the couple’s whirlwind romance reportedly came to a sudden end. The rumors began when Rob and Blac Chyna both scrubbed all references to their relationships from their social media accounts.
Now Radar Online reports that the social media freeze-out was Kris Jenner’s idea. Reportedly, Kris Jenner felt that the family war ignited over the relationship was bad for business. Jenner informed Rob that if he wants her continued support, he’ll tone down his social media references to Blac Chyna.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Rob Kardashian plans to expand his Arthur George sock line into a full fashion empire. The inspiration for the expansion was widely credited to Blac Chyna. But if Rob Kardashian wants to take his business to the next level, he can’t afford to make an enemy of Kris Jenner.
Falling in line with Kris Jenner’s demands wasn’t without reward for Rob Kardashian. Kris Jenner purchased a new mansion for her only son in the same neighborhood as Blac Chyna. There may be an ulterior motive to the gift. After Khloe Kardashian kicked Rob out of her house, he moved in with Blac Chyna. It might be difficult for Rob to reconnect with Kylie, Khloe, and Kim while living with a woman they hate.
But Kris Jenner didn’t win a clean victory. Shortly after the breakup rumors started, Rob squashed them. They may be keeping things off of social media, but Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are still very much together.
It gets worse. According to the Daily Mail, Kris Jenner’s relationship with Corey Gamble is on the rocks. Caitlyn Jenner had name recognition and fame before the KUWTK era that kept her from becoming Mr. Kris Jenner during their marriage. Corey Gamble wasn’t as lucky. Now, Gamble has reportedly had it with being the man behind the woman. For his part on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and putting out fires behind the scenes, Gamble is demanding a pay raise. And Gamble is threatening to walk out on the show and Kris Jenner if she doesn’t cough up the extra money.
With her public persona and personal relationships spinning out of control, 2016 is shaping up to be a hard year for Kris Jenner.
