On the April 14, 2019, episode of "CBS Sunday Morning," Kris Jenner revealed that her daughters make six figures posting about various products and brands on social media. "My daughters are constantly getting offers to post something for a company or a brand on social media," she said, explaining that the women have different fees based on which social media platform they're posting on and whether the sponsored post is going on a story, which disappears after 24 hours, or a page. "It's definitely six figures," she said, adding that daughters Kim Kardashian West and Kylie Jenner have the highest fees and that the price goes up if the sponsored product is "a pharmaceutical product — if it's something that you're going to drink, or ingest, or put on your body" … like weight-loss shakes, for example.
Meanwhile, according to Australia's The Daily Telegraph, Kendall Jenner banked somewhere north of $500K — which one source described as "an under-estimate" — to make an appearance at the opening of a new Tiffany and Co. store in Sydney on April 4, 2019. She reportedly spent less than 24 hours Down Under — meaning she spent more time traveling to and from Australia than she actually spent in the country.

Then Chalamet showed up and then Kanye showed up and I was like, 'Oh, f—.' And then I had to book two more gigs in Ohio."

As his interview with Ellen came to an end, Offset opened a white paper bag he'd brought with him to the set and pulled out a giant stack of $100 bills. His son, Kody, then carried out an oversized check for $25K to The Ellen Fund. "I would like to donate $25,000," he told Ellen as he handed her the check.

Eventually, I got assigned a campus police officer," said the child star of his brief time in college in late 2018. "There were so many tweets. And because your email is public domain, I got like, billions of emails from people going: 'Hi, three-eyed raven!' I was just trying to find out where my next lecture was." Continued the actor of his "GoT" fame, "It made it quite difficult to make friends. I don't think I'll ever be able to have a normal university experience, which is kind of sad.

My ex-girlfriend came up to visit and we just sat in my room for a week."
