Kris Jenner Used to Carry Around $1,000 in Cash Everywhere But Stopped Because of 1 Reason

Kris Jenner is the matriarch of the famous Kardashian-Jenner family. She and her family rose to fame on the show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and they are now some of the biggest celebrities around.

Fans are probably aware that Jenner has a lot of money compared to an average person. As such, she used to carry around $1,000 in cash. However, there’s a reason she stopped doing that.

What is Kris Jenner’s net worth?

Jenner works as a “momager”—a mom who is also a manager. She manages the careers of her six children. From securing them contracts to negotiating their salaries to managing their brands, Jenner seems to be behind almost everything her kids do.

As a manager, Jenner reportedly gets a cut of their earnings. She once told Ellen DeGeneres that she gets a 10 percent cut. According to TMZ, when the Kardashian-Jenners signed a $150 million contract with E!, Jenner got to pocket $15 million. However, some people believe she actually gets a larger cut than just 10 percent.

In any case, Jenner has been doing very well for herself as a “momager.” Celebrity Net Worth reports that she is worth around $170 million. She is said to be richer than four of her kids.

Jenner clearly has a lot of money in the bank and can afford to carry around wads of cash. On an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show last year, Jenner admitted that she used to carry around $1,000 in $20 bills. However, she stopped this habit because of her kids.

“Back in the day I used to carry $1,000 all the time. That was my thing,” she said. “[But] every time I look for money, half of it was gone because I had six kids. And so it disappeared like that. It just evaporated.”

Jenner revealed that these days she only carries around $100 or “a couple hundred.” Again, she often has money in $20 bills.

And it’s likely that Jenner does not have to worry about her kids going through her wallet anymore. Jenner’s children are all grown up now and have successful careers of their own.  These days, they most likely do not go to her for small amounts of cash like before.

Jenner’s youngest child, Kylie, is one of her wealthiest. Kylie has a net worth of around $700 million thanks to the success of her beauty company, Kylie Cosmetics. Unlike Jenner, though, Kylie apparently does not carry around cash at all.

On the same episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kylie revealed that she just carries around a credit card.

However, her on-and-off boyfriend Travis Scott reportedly “always has cash”—and probably wads of them. When asked how much money Scott walks around with, Kylie responded, “He doesn’t walk around with hundreds of thousands, but yeah, I’ve seen some cash. Not gonna lie.”
