Just yesterday Kris Jenner openly gushed about daughter Kendall Jenner and her latest modeling shoot on Instagram, drawing criticism from fans and haters alike.
More specifically, Kris gushed about pics of a half-naked Kendall being spanked by Santa, a move that grossed out some of the Kardashian matriarch's followers.
Now it seems Kris Jenner gushing about Kendall Jenner may have been part of a last-ditch effort to help her save her job as the up-and-coming model's manager.
Radar Online reports that Kendall Jenner, 19, has already fired Kris, and is currently seeking out a new agency to assist her with burgeoning career.
"Kendall has made it very clear to Kris that she is no longer managing her career," says one source. "Kris is aware of this... Kendall moved out and moved on months ago."
The reason? Well, remember the Kim Kardashian sex tape?
Oh yes. According to the source, Kendall is afraid of being used, abused and turned into her family's newest cash cow. Says the insider:
"She sees straight through all of Kris' BS and she will not let Kris exploit her like Kris did Kim."
As for Kris' decision to personally promote Kendall's lingerie photos, the source says it certainly wasn't Kendall's idea:
"She did not ask Kris to promote this in any way. Kris has been investing a lot of time in Kendall and Kendall doesn't invest any time in Kris. She's done."
Wait a sec ... Kendall sees through Kris' BS at the age of 19?!
Guess that brainwashing doesn't last as long as it used to.
