Kardashian Fam

We Didn't Make a Cent

Off the Wedding

The Kardashian family is screaming it from the mountain tops -- trying to convince the world they DID NOT PROFIT from Kim's ill-fated wedding ... but there seems to be a problem with their logic.

Kris Jenner appeared on "Today" this morning ... and said, "It saddens me to think that one of the rumors is that we’ve sold the television rights for millions of dollars, not true. We profited or she profited – absolutely false."

Jenner's statement follows a stern blog post from Kim -- in which she also stated, "There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this."

This morning, Kim appeared on the "Kyle and Jackie O" show in Australia, and once again insisted she didn't marry for cash ... saying, "I would never marry for a TV show, for money, for anything like that, and I think that's really ridiculous that I have to even, you know, kind of defend that but, you know."

Still, Kris admits K&K, "made some money for the pictures that were sold and things like that" ... but says the fam didn't profit, because all of that money went back towards paying for the wedding.

But here's the problem -- most people can't afford a $10 million wedding, and if Kim chose to pump her MASSIVE paychecks back into her wedding, that's her call ... and it STILL COUNTS AS PROFIT. Kim could have had a $6 mil wedding ... and banked $4.

So, we gotta ask ...

They say they didn't make any money on the wedding, but they BENEFITTED from the wedding financially.

A difference only an IRS auditor will determine. If everyone calls the IRS to complain, they will be audited. It's your civic duty, yall.

It's funny that Kim's surprised that she needs to make a public statement defending her motives for getting married. Specially since all of her past actions have been carefully calculated towards making herself richer & more famous, and building momager Kris Jenner's empire. The entire Kardashian/Jenner clan have skewed perception of reality and a warped since of right and wrong. They're ALL fame/money whores. I believe that there was trouble in paradise between Kim & Kris. But she and the producers didn't want to end a story line that made "good" tv.

Even the freebies she got for her wedding are basically profit. Such a liar and looking to keep the presents and justifying a 200K "donation" aka tax write off is such a slippery snake move. Return the presents...put your sisters to work.

Mommy-Manager (Spin Dr.) and KK sure are trying their best to quash the profiting bit. Makes everyone beleive it's true, and I'm sure it is. No matter what, Mommy-Manager isn't fairing too well as she tries to SPIN and SPIN to save KK's big rear from public scrutiny and outright hate of her mocking marriage and hurting Kris Humphries in the process. Doesn't fair well for REALITY, does it?

She should STFU. She's digging her own grave. She's too stupid to realize that denying she profited is extremely insulting to everyone in the real world who is working hand to mouth.

She's using the infamous liars response that's been elevated to part art form part science by Lindsay Lohan: "I would NEVER do (fill in the blank)", always with the unspoken "what you have me on video doing".

Don't get mad at Kim. Blame Yourself. She makes money because you watch her.
