In a post-Valentine's Day shocker, Khloe Kardashian dumped Tristan Thompson after he cheated -- yet again.
This time, he cheated with Kylie Jenner's best friend, causing a lot of heartbreak, anger, and hurt feelings.
But a certain momager is looking past all that -- and seeing dollar signs. This scandal could be a cash cow.
RadarOnline reports that Kris Jenner is thrilled at the opportunity to leverage Khloe's personal scandal for more money.
"Kris has been trying to broker a new deal for $200 million with E! for the show," an insider source reveals.
When it comes to contract negotiations, everyone wants leverage. And now, Kris has found it.
"And she is ecstatic over this cheating scandal," the source characterizes.
Of the cheating scandal, the insider says: "It is exactly what she’s been hoping for!"
Back in 2017, Kris used her momager skills to iron out a $150 million deal with E!
That contract will keep Keeping Up With The Kardashians on the air for another five seasons.
But that was around Season 12. We're now entering Season 16.
With the show's ratings repeatedly losing out to more niche reality shows like 90 Day Fiance and Alaskan Bush People, Kris needed an edge.
Since she reportedly ordered cameras to capture the drama of Khloe splitting with Tristan after his hookup with Jordyn Woods, she found it.
But what about the feelings of her daughter?
What about Kris' own sadness at this betrayal by the father of her grandchild?
"Kris really has no feelings or attachment to this," a source claims.
The insider explains her sense of detachment "because she told Khloe that she should leave Tristan."
Apparently, Kris told Khloe to ditch him "the first time that he cheated on her when she was giving birth to True."
Honestly, who didn't tell her to dump his ass back then?
"The fact that he did this to Khloe again is going to backfire on him," the source claims.
The insider continues: "because he just guaranteed that they will renew their contract."
We're not quite sure how that qualifies as backfiring on Tristan.
Are we to believe that Tristan was plotting to sabotage the family by slipping it to Kylie's bestie?
We had sort of assumed that he was just horny and thoughtless.
"Ratings are going to be through the roof over this," the source predicts.
"As far as Tristan and Jordyn go," the insider concludes. "They are cut as far as Kris is concerned."
That seems unfair.
The way that many see it, Jordyn did Khloe a favor by making it impossible for her to ignore Tristan's total lack of respect for her.
Because Khloe spent 10 entire months writing people out of her life if they suggested that Tristan was a mistake.
We still wonder how long it was after his cheating scandal that Tristan stepped out again. Because he sure didn't wait until Jordyn.
And yeah, Jordyn knew Khloe and therefore had an obligation to respect her ...
... It's heartbreaking that Jordyn is losing one of the most important relationships of her life (and her home) over this.
She shouldn't have banged him, but a lot of people
Is Tristan Thompson worth all of this heartbreak?
Signs point to no.
