Kendall Jenner may have caused an uproar with her controversial Pepsi ad, but RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively she’s still laughing all the way to the bank!
“Kendall made a deal with Pepsi that they could plaster her face everywhere for a couple of years, but after the disaster of her commercial the company distanced themselves from her,” an insider told Radar. “However, they continued to pay Kendall and even financed a trip for her and her entourage to go to Coachella.”
As Radar readers know, the ad, which features Jenner handing a soda to a cop at a protest, was slammed on the internet and beyond by people who say it trivialized real social upheaval, like the Black Lives Matter movement.
It was quickly and quietly pulled from the air. But Jenner remained under contract with the soda company.
“Kendall made a seven-figure salary and had to do a minimal amount of work for Pepsi,” the insider added. “But she would have made a whole lot more if the campaign had worked out as it could have led to years of endorsements.”
Because Jenner was the face of the ad, sources told Radar other brands don’t want anything to do with her until it all finally blows over.
“Now, the arrangement is quietly coming to an end and Kendall wants to pretend the whole thing never happened.”
Jenner has rarely discussed the failed project but did drop her guard on the season 14 premier of Keeping up with the Kardashians, breaking down in tears over the commercial that almost ruined her career.
“After I saw the reaction, I most definitely saw what went wrong. I was so stuck and I really didn’t know what to do that I completely shut down,” Jenner said, adding, “I feel really bad that anyone that anyone was ever offended… This was taken such a wrong way… I have no idea how I’m gonna bounce back from it.”
