    Kris Jenner Broke Down How Much The Kardashians Get Paid Per Sponsored Instagram Post

    She also revealed who commands the highest fee.

    Over recent months the Kardashian/Jenners have been repeatedly targeted by actor Jameela Jamil for promoting weight-loss products on Instagram.

    After Jameela dragged Khloé for sharing a post about meal replacement shakes, the family responded to her criticism in an interview with the New York Times.

    Jameela swiftly responded, sharing a series of tweets including one in which she said that the Kardashians' pockets were “lined with the blood and diarrhea of teenage girls”.

    The feud comes less than a year after Kim received considerable backlash for posting an advert for appetite-suppressant lollipops on Instagram back in May 2018.

    The post drew outrage, with thousands of comments branding it "irresponsible" and "abhorrent."

    And just four months after the lollipop post, the Advertising Standards Authority issued new guidelines stating that celebrities and influencers must declare which of their posts are sponsored in the accompanying caption. And, while the Kardashian/Jenners comply with these rules, many medical practitioners have called for an outright ban on the promotion of diet products on social media.

    In fact, back in February, Stephen Powis, National Medical Director of the NHS, wrote a piece for the Daily Telegraph addressing the subject: "Highly influential celebrities are letting down the very people who look up to them, by peddling products which are at best ineffective and at worst harmful. Social media companies have a duty to stamp out the practice of individuals and companies using their platform to target young people with products known to risk ill health."

    Well, Kris Jenner has now spoken in more detail about the process of selecting sponsored posts, breaking down the amounts she and her daughters are paid for sharing them on social media.

    Kris began by revealing that there is a "fee schedule" that varies depending on how and where the product will be promoted.

    She went on to say that the fee increases depending on what the product is — and it turns out that the products Jameela has been calling the Kardashians out for promoting might actually bring in the most money.

    Kris said that if the family are asked to post about a "pharmaceutical product," or one that "you're going to drink, or ingest, or put on your body," the fee increases.

    And Kris concluded by revealing that Kim and Kylie command the highest fee for posts, which begin at six figures.
