Cody Simpson

Sonny With a Chance

of a Small Payday

1/28/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Cody SimpsonCody Simpson was the big guest star on the very first episode of the "Sonny With a Chance" spin-off show "So Random!" -- but you wouldn't know it from his paycheck.

"So Random!" premiered last June as its own show once "SWAC" went off the air following Demi Lovato's departure. Cody was the musical guest and performed his song, "All Day."

According to the minor's contract filed in L.A. Superior Court earlier this month, Simpson received $2,906 for the one day of work. 

It seems Cody benefitted in other ways -- just a few months after the episode aired, he started dating Kylie Jenner.

Not everything can measured in dollars and cents.

No surprise here. Disney pays the lowest of all salaries. Their crews are terribly underpaid compared to the rest of the industry. Remember when TMZ reported that Selena Gomez was getting a fraction the salary of stars of any other network for her leading role in The Wizards of Waverly Place? Yet Disney makes BILLIONS! Come on you cheap Disney bastards, pay people at least the industry norms!

What a non story. How long of a day was it? If it was an 8 hour day, that's $363 an hour. And he's 15 years old! How many adults make that?

This reveals the truth about what these "stars" make. KKK empire made $60...m? Don't believe a word of it. E! doesn't pay. Tim Guinn worked first year on reality show for free.

The only reason TMZ reported this non-story was so they could mention a relative of the Kraptashian family....mommy paid them to start pimping the younger ones now becuz everyone hates the older whores....
