Kris Jenner is reportedly planning to cash in on Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s feud. According to a source close to Jenner, she is planning to use the feud to shore up the ratings for Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality show.
Kris “knows that this [Rob and Chyna feud] will bring in lots of viewers,” the source reportedly said, according to Radar Online.
The source allegedly revealed that as the feud between Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna continued yesterday in court, with Chyna obtaining a temporary restraining order against Rob, Kris Jenner was plotting how to milk the situation maximally to score ratings for Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality show. The source reportedly told Radar Online that Kris was working on how to cash in on the feud between her son and his ex-fiance.
“Kris is going to use all of this for the upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the source, who is reportedly close to the 61-year-old momager, said, according to Radar Online.
The source, however, tried to mitigate the poor optics of the situation where Kris appears primarily preoccupied about the ratings of Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality show while her son’s life is embroiled in a crisis.
“She is distraught about the drama,” the source said, “but at the same time excited about this because she knows that this court drama will bring in lots of viewers!”
Kris is also concerned that the ongoing feud could hurt Rob’s Arthur George Socks line. She “is trying to do damage control right now because she feels like this could really hurt Rob’s business.”
However, Blac Chyna should not worry about Kris exploiting her failed relationship to make more money because despite falling out with the Kardashian clan, Kris will pay her for using the crisis in her private life to shore up KUWTK’s ratings.
“As far as Blac Chyna is concerned, Kris will obviously pay her for using this situation on the next season.”
Following Rob Kardashian’s social media tirade in which he shared Blac Chyna’s nude photos with millions of his social media users, she appeared in court on Monday with her attorney, Lisa Bloom, and obtained a temporary restraining order against Rob. She accused Rob of cyber-bullying. She also claimed that Rob hit her during an argument that occurred on April 18. She alleged that Rob told her he had a gun and that he would use it to commit suicide if she did not fulfill his demands.
However, after Chyna’s court victory, Rob reportedly apologized to his sisters and mom for his shocking behavior on social media last week. He reportedly admitted that he was wrong to have slut shamed Blac Chyna and expressed remorse, saying that he should have responded privately when Chyna sent him a video showing her in bed with another man. He also admitted that his sisters had warned him that Chyna was “bad news” and advised him to stay away from her. He said he regretted not heeding their advice, but Rob promised he would not make the same mistake again.
