Kim Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian are among the sisters in the famous family who have faced backlash for their promotion of dubious diet products in sponsored Instagram posts shared with their combined hundreds of millions of impressionable followers — many of them girls and young women. The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil, in fact, has made it her mission to publicly crusade against celebrity promotion of these non-FDA-approved products — and her efforts are having an effect on the public consciousness.
Nevertheless, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians sisters — and many other celebrities — continue to promote these products in their Instagram feeds. But just how much money do the Kardashians make for Instagram posts promoting such products as so-called "detox teas?" Matriarch-momager Kris Jenner is shedding some light on that.
Providing a rare dose of transparency into the family finances, Kris told CBS Sunday Morning more about the fee structure behind posts from daughters Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie.
“My daughters are constantly getting offers to post something for a company, or a brand, on social media,” she told CBS News' Tracy Smith. “So they’re — they have a fee for a post, or a fee for a story, a fee for Facebook, a fee for – you know — they have a fee schedule.”
While she didn't name precise figures for each contract, she said the posts fetch "definitely six figures." And it's the diet products that command the most money, in her description of the arrangements.
She told CBS Sunday Morning that the price goes up if the product in question is “a pharmaceutical product, if it’s something that you’re going to drink, or ingest, or put on your body." So you can bet that those detox tea ads — the subject of such impassioned backlash — are getting top dollar.
