Kris Jenner Turns Weight Gain Into Cash?

Kris Jenner has reportedly put on a few extra pounds in recent months, but apparently, she doesn’t care, and there’s a good reason why.

According to a new report, 60-year-old Kris Jenner isn’t concerned about her recent weight gain because she knows there’s a “fat paycheck on the horizon.” In fact, a source claims the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is currently weighing in at 180 pounds after purposefully adding pounds in hopes of scoring a weight loss deal.

“Instead of going on a diet, [Kris Jenner] gained even more in the hope of making some serious cash,” a source told OK! Magazine on July 11.

The insider revealed Kris Jenner has already approached several weight loss brands in hopes of scoring a hefty payday and has “even offered to pile on a few more pounds if necessary.” The report also mentioned “mortifying photos” taken of Kris Jenner in St. Barts in January, which reportedly put her weight gain on full blast. However, while photos such as those may be considered embarrassing to some, Kris Jenner reportedly believes it is simply the price she has to pay to score a weight loss endorsement deal.

Although it is unclear who she’s actually contacted, Kris Jenner is said to have proposed a $2 million contract and a “surefire” way to get her body back in hopes of boosting the Kardashian brand.

“[Kris Jenner] is pretty confident she can strike a deal,” the source added, “and she could do with a little help to get back into shape anyway.”

Back in May, news of Kris Jenner’s weight gain began swirling and in one particular report, a source claimed the reality star and manager was blaming her much younger boyfriend, 35-year-old Corey Gamble, for her added pounds.

“She’s so mortified, she plans to have liposuction,” a source told OK! Magazine at the time. “She wants a quick fix to lose the pounds and drop a couple of dress sizes since she’s unhappy with her body.”

According to the report, Kris Jenner went as far as to threaten “to dump [Corey] if he keeps making her ‘fat!'”

“[Kris Jenner] complains he always making late-night snacks, which they both pig out on, and doesn’t motivate her to exercise,” the source explained.

Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble have been dating since 2014, one year after she ended her marriage to Bruce Jenner, who has since taken on a new name, Caitlyn Jenner, as well as a female identity. And ever since, they have faced rumors of an engagement and a future wedding.

In late 2015, as she celebrated her 60th birthday in Los Angeles, Kris Jenner debuted a massive ring on her engagement finger and for weeks, the ring remained on her finger. However, despite the many engagement rumors that swirled at the time, the ring was ultimately removed and at this point, it’s hard to say whether or not the two ever had any plans to get married.

That said, a Life & Style source claimed earlier this month that Kris Jenner and her boyfriend had flown to Capri, Italy to meet with a wedding planner about a possible wedding in the area. Then, a short time later, a second source shot down the report to Gossip Cop.
