Although Khloe is devastated after catching two-timing Tristan Thompson cheating again — this time with little sister Kylie Jenner’s lifelong BFF Jordyn Woods— her momager, 63, sees dollar signs, a source told Radar.
"Kris has been trying to broker a new deal for $200 million with E! for the show and she is ecstatic over this cheating scandal. It is exactly what she’s been hoping for!" the insider said.
In 2017, Kris inked a $150 million deal to keep KUWTK on the air for five more seasons.
At the time, KUWTK was about to start its 12th season. But now that the show is entering season 16, the family members' contracts are running out, according to the source.
As Radar previously reported, Kris ordered film crews to capture the drama that went down on Monday, February 19, 2019 when Khloe, 34, learned that Tristan, 27, had hooked up with 21-year-old Jordyn at his house over the weekend.
The source said Kris saw an opportunity to boost the ratings by covering the controversy and then arrange a lucrative new TV deal.
"Kris really has no feelings or attachment to this because she told Khloe that she should leave Tristan the first time that he cheated on her when she was giving birth to True," the source explained.
"The fact that he did this to Khloe again is going to backfire on him because he just guaranteed that they will renew their contract."
The insider said, "Ratings are going to be through the roof over this. As far as Tristan and Jordyn go, they are cut as far as Kris is concerned.”
