Another week, another report from In Touch magazine promising to shatter the illusion of Kris and Bruce Jenner's marriage.
If you recall, Waterman appeared on "Keeping Up With the Kardardashians" this past summer, when Kris "bumped into him" while playing tennis. Waterman is the same man with whom Kris cheated on her first husband, Robert Kardashian, more than two decades ago. Kris wrote about the affair in her memoir.
Now, an "insider" claims that Kris cheated on Bruce with Waterman when the two were first dating in 1991. In Touch claims that in January 2012 -- six months before he appeared on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" -- Waterman told the magazine that he and Kris "were still sleeping together when she started dating Bruce.” The magazine also claims he confirmed he has a financial agreement with Kris, but said he's under contract with the family not to talk about them.
The magazine's source claims that Waterman was paid $15,000 to $20,000 to appear on the show, which is far more than someone is normally paid, but it was really a way for Kris to ensure his silence.
It's more than likely that Kris asked Waterman to sign a contract when he appeared on the family's reality show, but the payoff amount of $15,000 to $20,000 sounds absurdly low, for a family who reportedly earned $65 million in 2010, and signed a $40 million deal with E! to produce three more years of reality shows in April 2012.
And while the math doesn't add up, a “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” insider denied to Gossip Cop that Waterman was ever paid that much to appear on the show.
These claims that Kris cheated on Bruce in the early stages of the relationship are par for the course of tabloids trying to dig up dirt buried in her past. In recent weeks, In Touch has published journals that allegedly were written by the late Robert Kardashian, and painted Kris as an abusive monster who wasn't fit to be a mother. Similarly, despite the fact that Kris and Bruce remain married, there has been report after report alleging the two are divorcing, and yet not a shred of their claims appears to be true.
With all that in mind, it's necessary to note that Kris did cheat on her first husband, and you know what they say -- once a cheater, always a cheater.
