It pays to be a Kardashian. Or at least be related to one. Kendall and Kylie Jenner may be building a name for themselves through clothing deals, modeling contracts, and other endorsements. However, the half-sisters of Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian were making dough years ago. They were just 13 and 15 years old at the time.
Radar Online recently obtained court documents that claimed Kendall and Kylie each earned $100,000 from a nail polish deal with their Kardashian sisters. In 2011, Nicole by OPI released the nail polish line, “Kardashian Kolors.” Kendall and Kylie both had “Kolors” named after them. With names like “All Kendall-ed Up” and “Rainbow in the S-Kylie,” who could resist the temptation of feeling like a Kris Jenner piggy bank.
The Jenner sisters had to attend a one-day photoshoot and one-day media tour to promote the product line. They also had to do promotional tweets and blog posts and “use reasonable efforts” not to promote other nail polishes to earn the $100,000.
Imagine earning that much money when you were 13 and all you had to do was tweet. Nowadays, they are earning even more through various business deals. It’s also reported that they make $5,000 per episode for Keeping Up with the Kardashians and can make up $5,000 per promotional tweet. Most child stars earn their money acting or singing with agents, lawyers, and unions guiding them through their career. Are Kylie and Kendall Jenner too young to jump on the socialite to fame train?
