THE Kardashians threatened to quit E! before landing a $100 million deal.
The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ stars recently signed a new four-year contract with the channel for the eye-watering sum but it’s now been reported they threatened to leave the network before securing the deal.
Claiming the Kardashian’s matriarch Kris Jenner was lead negotiator for her family, a source shared: “This has been in the works for almost a year. Kris is a fierce negotiator … She was playing major hardball and threatening to leave.”
The 59-year-old star and her daughters – Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner – have been starring in the E! show since 2007 and network bosses were keen to keep them bringing in viewers.
The source added to the New York Post newspaper’s PageSix, “E! needs them.” BANG!
