Kris Jenner is definitely no ordinary traditional mom. According to The Wall Street Journal, Kris is proud of her role as momager, a portmanteau she has protected. She definitely works hard at her job and strikes a tough deal for her family clients, although there are also some questionable things Kris has done for her children. The Kardashian matriarch has more of a friendly relationship with her six children, and she’s not afraid to share a good old-fashioned TMI with them, even if it’s being televised around the world.
Kris is rumored to have brokered her daughter Kim Kardashian’s 2007 sex tape that spotlighted her first reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. However, the businesswoman has repeatedly denied the allegations, despite The Sun reporting that the Kardashians made $20 million from the sale. TMZ backed Kris’ rebuttal, insisting a source swears it was Kim’s co-star Ray-J who brokered the deal directly with Vivid Entertainment and her attorneys.
Kris has also been accused of profiting from the Kardashian-Jenners in their business deals. “My girls aren’t pansies, but I think everyone needs direction,” she told Us Weekly in 2013 (via The Huffington Post). Kris insisted the whole family was on board with the fame train, and branded allegations of “sexualizing” her then-teen daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner as “ridiculous.” However, Kris Jenner has now confirmed what we suspected about her views on marriage and children.
Kris Jenner refuses to judge her children’s choices
Well, you can blame Kris Jenner for many things, but according to Kris herself, being judgmental isn’t one of them. “I had Kourtney [Kardashian] nine months, two weeks and two days [after marrying Robert Kardashian]’ she admitted to People on The Martha Stewart Podcast. Kris said she fathered while on honeymoon but was appalled that people would think she was illegitimately pregnant.
Kris Jenner has been married twice and has six children and eleven grandchildren. Kris’ first husband was OJ “Dream Team” attorney Robert Kardashian. Per cheat sheet, Kris was 17 and dating Cesar Sanudo when she met 28-year-old Robert in 1973. She dropped the golfer, married the lawyer in 1978, and they had four children together. However, Kris and Robert divorced in 1991 after he found out she was having an affair. Later that same year, Kris married Caitlyn Jenner. “Kris and I went from meeting to getting married in just 5.5 months. She decided we should get married, but I didn’t want to,” Caitlyn claimed of Australia’s “Big Brother VIPs” (via Der Spiegel). The couple had two daughters before splitting in 2015.
Kris said old-fashioned attitudes have changed, however, and she would never criticize her children’s pregnancy choices. “There is nothing I would judge. Not at all. I mean, I just would never do it,” Kris vowed (per People), explaining that her beliefs have evolved with age. That’s a good thing, because eight of Kris’ eleven grandchildren were born out of wedlock.
