Kim Kardashian Charges $1M Per Product Endorsement

KimK HeadshotRadar Online tells us today that your client won’t get a mention on Kim’s twitter feed for less than a million bucks ($750K if she’s feeling generous).

The “secret business emails from the star’s reps” that someone chose to leak — presumably for far less than $1M — are not particularly shocking to us. We have seen The Smoking Gun’s “backstage riders.

But it’s worth noting that, for personal appearances, Mrs. Kardashian-West requires:

“5 first class tickets, plus 1 coach, first class hotel accommodations (1 suite for talent and standard rooms for others in party), portal to portal first class exclusive ground transportation, airport greeter service, security, glam fee (day rate for her hair and makeup squad), and a per diem.”

The next quote isn’t much of a surprise, either:

“We would need approval over photographer, all photos used in print materials, glam squad (hair, makeup, stylist, manicurist), hotel/airline/car service and PR usage.”

So the client’s PR team has to make nice with the Kardashians’ PR team. The best part about the story: if a curious brand can’t afford Kim’s seven-figure fee, her little sister Kendall will allegedly promote it for half the price.

The “who” in this tale isn’t completely clear: Kim reportedly left PMK*BNC in 2013 and signed with Slate PR co-founder Ina Treciokas; in August The New York Daily News told us that Kortney and Khloe had also decided not to stay with PMK and implied that they might turn to Kris Jenner’s in-house firm, Jenner Communications.

We wonder how a brand justifies such a spend, but after reading the story we mostly want the details on contracts signed by those repping the family.

We imagine massive retainers with too many conditions to count. It’s a shame no one wants to leak them.
