Kris Jenner opened up about how she built her empire and created a successful career for her ex Caitlyn Jenner during Janet Mock’s “Never Before” podcast.
“I married Robert Kardashian when I was 22 years old. Everybody that I was surrounded by for two decades was at the top of their game in the entertainment business: the head of every studio, the best attorneys in the world, the people that were running the most incredible industries,” Jenner said in an excerpt from the conversation published in Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter on Tuesday, August 8. “I was watching my husband be the biggest kick-ass attorney that I’d ever seen. I was so proud of him doing that. I learned a lot along the way.”
“Then, when I met and married Bruce Jenner, I became his manager instantly because he didn’t have a lot going on. I saw this incredible potential, and he wasn’t doing anything,” she said. “Nobody was booking him for speeches. Nobody was sending him out on the road. I thought, ‘Wow. You should be this incredible public speaker.’ I just figured it out to that point.”
The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians; star needed to put food on the table for her kids, so she figured out how capitalize on Caitlyn’s Olympic gold medals. “I told my assistant, Lisa, ‘OK, listen. We have the greatest guy here. He really knows his craft. He is really good at what he does, but he doesn’t have anybody doing anything for him. He doesn’t have a lot going on. He has $200 in the bank. What are we going to do?’” she said. “Because the kids have to eat. We have to get it together.”
Usher’s Insurance Company Doesn’t Want to Defend Him in Herpes Lawsuits, Claims He Hid His Alleged Diagnosis
Usher’s herpes fallout continues.
According to new reports, Usher’s insurance company claims he didn’t just allegedly hide his herpes diagnosis from his sexual partners, but from them as well.
They believe his omission means they shouldn’t have pay out ANYTHING on his behalf if he loses any lawsuits.
According to court documents filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court — and obtained by PEOPLE — New York Marine and General Insurance Company believe they are under no obligation to defend the singer in his current lawsuits in Georgia and California or any potential lawsuits that may come down the road.
Among their list of reasons, New York Marine claims the policy between them and Usher “does not apply to ‘bodily injury’ … arising out of the transmission of any communicable diseases by insured.”
Furthermore, New York Marine claims the policy expressly states that New York Marine “does not provide coverage for an ‘insured’ who has a. intentionally concealed or misrepresented any material fact or circumstance.”
The company also says Usher never made mention of the fact he settled a prior lawsuit in 2012 for $1.1 million over the same issue.
New York Marine is asking the court to rule that they are not obligated to defend Usher in the Georgia lawsuit, the California lawsuits or any future lawsuit that may arise involving the transmission of the herpes virus.
The company has begun defending him in the Georgia case until a judge rules, and is asking to be reimbursed for any expenses they incur in the meantime, should they prevail in this case.
