Kardashian Fam

We Didn't Make a Cent

Off the Wedding

11/2/2011 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 ...

TMZ I am sick of this! Who cares about this skank or her family? There is only one "star" in that family and thats Bruce. Making a sex tape or a reality show does not make you a star. Talent does. Every other story is about this skank. Start doing more stories about REAL stars or I will stop going to TMZ.

The Kardashian's are business people all they see is money and if they can get money they do it, Kim is money hungryand very high maintenance and Kris Humphrey is stupid for even trying to be with someone like her, they are 2 different people. Of course she did it for the tv show and i bet the pocketed a lot of money. I heard she is donating money and wedding gifts to charity..isn't that tax deductible?? so she profits somewhere..KARDASHIANS SHOULD JUST GO AWAY!

People obviously don't understand the difference between revenue and profit. Selling pictures generated revenue, that doesn't mean their net income was positive. If they sold pictures for $1m, and the wedding cost $10m, they had $1m in revenues and $9m in losses to their net income. If they sold pictures for $11m, and the wedding cost $10m, then they had $1m in profit to their net income.

Not saying they did or didn't profit, but at least know how to properly use the terminology.

Kim may not have "made money" on the wedding but I would be willing to bet there were items of the wedding that were gifted for the publicity. She may not have made money but I doubt she paid for all of it either.

every time this family does anything, the cash register rings. it's the idiots of the world that buy into them that push there bank account up. This family is really stupid to think that they can just say "they didn't make any money off of it" But yet we all know that NONE of them would do a thing unless it had money attached to it. I think they call this being a HIGH PRICED HOE!..... but in there case.... HOE'S....

if kim had "thought" it through like she said she did before filing for divorce, how come Kris didnt know this? She made money no matter what. And maybe she didnt make 20million, but that would only be because momager kris gets 10%! Kris Humphries needs to take her sorry ass to court and sue her for 1/2 of what was taken in from the wedding and pics and so forth! Why does she think he isnt entitled to get a publicist? She was a NOBODY before her show and I would think she would want her husband working and bringing in money. What was she afraid of? A little competition in the industry? She is nothing more than a fame whore who is comparable to Kate Gosselin. They both crave attention and money and were nothing before their reality shows and will be nothing when they are over.

FERENGI aka KardASShians They and their culture are characterized by a mercantile obsession with profit and trade and their constant efforts to swindle people into bad deals. They are also known for their business a***en and for exploiting people.

For weeks leading up to it and for the 72 days following it there was talk about how the Kardashians made millions off of this wedding. I cant recall every hearing them deny it, until now.

So, does anyone have any proof of what they really got, profit or expense ? I don't believe them because I dont think it was ever an issue when somebody mentioned the millions they got before the divorce.

Either they think we're stupid, or they're stupid. Last sentence of the story sums it up perfectly. What she did with the money isn't an issue, it's still a profit. Hopefully people stop paying attention to her and her show(s).
