Why Did Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Pose for Playboy If They Don’t Need Money?

Big sister, Kim Kardashian did it. Now it’s Kylie Jenner’s turn to pose for Playboy, and she’s doing it with her boyfriend, Travis Scott. Although we see celebrities, especially the Kardashian-Jenners, pose naked all the time, it always shocks the public.

Many can’t understand why they want to be seen without clothes. Sometimes people assume that the only reason someone would do that is for money. Why would Jenner and Scott decide to pose for Playboy? Do they have a good reason?

Jenner announced her and Scott’s shoot for Playboy on her Instagram with a risque photo of the two of them. The story is called Kylie by Scott and will be part of Playboy’s Pleasure Issue. Scott will be the creative director for the piece. But why would they do this?

Playboy has been known to offer celebrities giant paychecks to appear in the magazine. Jennifer Aniston was offered $4 million to pose for Playboy, but she turned the opportunity down, and told publisher, Hugh Hefner, “GQ was art, but Playboy is sex.”

However, Denise Richards accepted an offer of $2 million to do a photoshoot with the magazine. 

There’s no doubt that Playboy would be willing to pay Jenner and Scott a large amount for their appearance. We don’t yet know what amount they agreed on, but one thing is sure: Jenner and Scott don’t need the money. 

There’s some disagreement about how much Jenner is actually worth. Forbes declared her a billionaire, but that’s because they included her business, Kylie Cosmetics, which is worth an estimated $900 million.

However, Jenner will never actually see that money unless she sells the business. For that reason, other outlets say she her net worth is closer to $300 million. That’s a big difference, but $300 million is still nothing to laugh at. Especially for someone who is only 22 years old. 

There are disagreements on Scott’s net worth as well. He is said to be worth someone between $40 million and $22 million. Although they aren’t billionaires, they’re not likely to be having financial troubles any time soon. With a combined worth of at least $322 million, this couple has enough to buy almost anything they could want.

Posing for Playboy would be a nerve-wracking experience for many women. But Jenner seems to be very comfortable with her body, and comfortable with posing both semi-nude and nude. In fact, all the women in the Kardashian-Jenner family regularly pose nude, both for magazines and on their Instagram account. Jenner’s account is filled with photos of her wearing skimpy clothes, bikinis, and even nothing at all. 

Since the Kardashian-Jenner’s are famous for taking their clothes off, when Jenner turned 18 years old, there was a lot of focus on her first nude photo. She received a flood of offers to do her first naked photoshoot, and the idea excited her. According to a source for Just Richest, Jenner “loves her boobs and cannot wait to show off her smoking body without any clothes on.”

The source confirmed that Jenner had received tons of offers from magazines and entertainments outlets to do her first nude. The offers started arriving even before her birthday. “She is going to bare her breasts,” the source continued,” and is excited about allowing the world to see them because they really are so perfect.”

Jenner likes showing off her body. It’s beautiful and she knows it. She doesn’t need the money, but the Kardashian-Jenners keep their celebrity status by hoarding attention. A Playboy photoshoot always gets a celebrity plenty of exposure. If Jenner was uncomfortable with her body, or with showing it to the public, she would probably just find another way to keep attention, but this is easy for her. 

The fact that she is including Scott in the shoot makes a great addition. Many people are curious about their relationship, and just like any other celebrity couple, they often have to fight off breakup rumors. This will show the world how strong their love is. As part of the promotion for their story in the magazine, Playboy is using a sweet quote. 

“You’re my best friend. Through all the ups and downs that every relationship has, we evolve together through them and keep getting stronger.”

This will no doubt attract readers that are both interested in the photos and in their relationship. It’s perfect exposure for the couple.
